What I just heard on the radio: “…and as of today over a million shoes have been donated to Feed the Children in Darfur.”
Me to myself: The hell? Why are we feeding shoes to children? Oh waaaait. Now I get it. Ha! I should blog this. I should totally find the sound bite for this commercial and say something about how “these barefoot kids wouldn’t have this problem if they’d just quit eating their shoes”. ‘Cause there is nothing funnier than a slapstick misunderstanding about starving, barefoot African children.
I bet there will be a lot of funny people with me when I get to hell.
The comment(s) of the day:
You know Dianne Rehm on NPR? I had this ex-boyfriend who was all, “Why the hell is her voice all fucked up? Why can’t she talk right.” Then we found out she has some sort of horrible throat disease that she has overcome in order to do radio broadcasting. To which I said, “Why don’t you go kick a puppy and kill a kitten, now?” ~Law School Hot Mama
You know, it’s all about perspective. Which is like the similar relief effort the Bush administration is trying to push through to offer free AIDS vaccines with pancake batter. ~furiousball
That’s like that line in the song “Fly Like an Eagle” saying “I want to shoe the children with no shoes on their feet”. Every time I hear it I comment to whomever I’m with “That’s awful. Why would they want to shoot children with no shoes?”. Everyone ignores me. Why? ~Lindsay
