Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, you’re looking positively jubilant today. Why are you rejoicing?
I’ve made the big time. My blog’s Facebook Network hit 25,000 members yesterday.
CONGRATULATIONS! There must have been one HUGE celebration when that happened.
Indeed. Washington was all ablaze with glory. The very heavens seemed to have come down. Rockets flashed to and fro in fiery lines, and banners waved above the tumultuous throng…
Let me stop you right there, Blog Guy. That sounds very familiar…
You’re quoting a newspaper story from April 14, 1865, describing Washington DC’s celebration over the end of the Civil War! It didn’t really happen to you yesterday.
Quick quiz: The resplendent full dress uniform seen above, with blue lapels, gleaming buttons and rank stripes on the sleeves, will be worn by…
a) the commander of the Sri Lankan navy.
b) members of the Raccoon Lodge.
c) Britain’s Prince William at his upcoming wedding.
d) waiters at a party for the Oscars.
Don’t feel bad, this one fooled me, too. These are indeed specially designed uniforms for waiters at the Governors Ball, part of the Academy Awards festivities.
Psssssssssst! Blog Guy, it’s me!
Wally? My old roommate from the Witness Protection Program?
No, you dimwit, I’m The Elephant Man! I was famous when my movie came out, back in 1980, and I’d like some of your fashion advice. I want to start hitting the singles bar scene, but I need a hip wardrobe.
Ah, that empty oat bag over your head and the stupid floppy cap aren’t making it any more, huh?
Blog Guy, whatever happened to your Dumbass of the Month? You haven’t given the award for some time now.
I know, sorry, but I am in a position to name one for February.
Really? But it’s only February 3.
Yeah, but no one is gonna beat this guy.
It seems some hunter whose dream was to shoot an elephant has sued a travel company after it sent him to a part of Africa where he said there were no elephants to be found.
Blog Guy, I need some of your famous travel advice. I’m leaving soon on the dream trip of a lifetime, to Asia, and I’m going there for the usual reason.
To see the Great Wall? The Forbidden City? Mount Fuji? Angkor Wat?
No! Unlimited karaoke! I hear they have it everywhere over there, but I want to make sure I’m up on the latest developments. I wouldn’t want to embarrass myself while singing in public.
