News, but not the serious kind

And the second-best museum is…



Blog Guy, I’m having an argument with my piano tuner’s haberdasher…

SWITZERLAND/My main purpose in life is to settle arguments. What is it?

We were trying to decide on the second-best museum in the world, next to your Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop, which we both agree is number one.

Anyways, is number two the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in New York City, or the Louvre, in Paris?

Sorry, I’m not familiar with those. I’m sure they’re probably both okay.

You like ‘em runny, honey?



Thank you for calling International Department of Festivals, how may we help you?

Blog Guy, I can’t remember the name of it, but you blogged about some city you called the “goofiest spot on earth.”

You mean Wackytown? That’s Krasnoyarsk, in Siberia. I put together tours there as part of my blog’s Goofy Travel series. Are you interested?

Taking an airplane? Don’t go there!

Blog Guy, you’ll never believe where I’m e-mailing you from. I’m flying on one of those planes with Internet access. Greetings from 32,000 feet.

Don’t touch a thing, and come back down here this instant!

What do you mean, Blog Guy?

Look, I just read this story on AARP about germs and hygiene on airplanes, and it’s disgusting beyond words.

Wanna turn the wipers on, Blog Guy?


Blog Guy, summer is right around the corner, you know. You and the missus got big vacation plans?

The usual. A nice road trip.


Not another road trip! In that rusted-out car with no windshield? The one that’s up on blocks in your yard?

Hey, save some ice water for us!



Blog Guy, I’ve noticed that as a travel blogger you write mostly about overseas toilet facilities for your American audience.

Yes, that’s the number one concern among folks planning trips overseas or to red states.

Okay Lamar, this was your really big chance. How many guys get to plan the entire Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, huh?

My blog, which has been named by Travel and Leisure magazine as one of the Top travel Websites, dispensed a butt-load of great travel advice this year.

We found plenty of great places for you to avoid, and lots of reasons just to stay at home, which is what sane people did in 2010.
