Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, I heard a weird rumor from my barista’s used car dealer.
You know the Wonder Woman character from the comic books?
He said Wonder Woman got really rich from those stories over the years, but went sort of crazy, and that now a comic book cartel is keeping her under wraps to avoid bad publicity.
Now she lives as a glamorous recluse in her own little world, trying to convince strangers of her true identity by showing old sketches of herself.
I’m listening. Go on.
They say she lives in a fancy high-rise apartment and once in a while you can see her at the window, always dressed in a gold lamé gown, pounding to get attention until her handlers drag her back into the darkness.
Hmmmm. Yeah, that all sounds fairly plausible to me, except for one thing. Wouldn’t people recognize her instantly from her gorgeous hair, which was so black it actually looked blue in the comics?
It all fits! Palin rides a motorcycle, just like the real Wonder Woman, and she always travels with her faithful calf, Shep, and her wise-cracking sidekick, Todd….
Blog Guy, I’m a young female who wants to become a super heroine, sort of like Wonder Woman. I know she was an Amazon. Any idea where she bought her costume?
I guess Amazon.com would be too obvious?
Oh. That makes sense. You’ve written about a place called Super-Chicks R Us. Are they still in business?
Blog Guy, my buddy and I are having an argument, so we’re turning to you. What is the single most common male fantasy?
Oh please! Everybody knows that one.
Hah! It involves Brooke Shields, right?
Of course it does.
And also lots and lots of chocolate and some strawberries, right?
Sure, but I can’t even imagine what guy wouldn’t already be aware of that!
