This is not a real post.

Joaquin Phoenix is kind of an idiot.

Also, I don’t keep up with the news but apparently Barack Obama is getting a puppy!  And something about him winning something too.  Some kind of raffle, I think.

Comment of the day: I don’t think it’s “retiring” when you’re 34, I think that’s just quitting. Otherwise, I’ve retired a lot of jobs. ~ Emmysuh

    Hello, Jenny the Bloggess.

  6. Bless his dyslexic heart.

    I heard Obama is going to Disney World. Do you think that he won that trip? Maybe that’s what he won! I hope he knows that those “win” things are a scam. Poor guy. Hate to think of his kids having to sit through long drawn out speeches where they try to sell stuff.

  21. Haha, so freaking hilarious.

    I heard something about Obama too. Maybe that’s why all those people were stepping on my toes in Grant Park last night…

  22. I watched Obama announce the thing about the puppy. Overall, he didn’t seem too happy about it. Maybe he’s allergic?

    Elizabeth’s last blog post..Can you use that in a sentence, please??

  47. On and on Joaquin… maybe he was answering himself. You know… “Bye!” “Good… we don’t want you here anymore anyway” but he probably ran out of fingers and had yet to receive his dead hobo fingers from eBay.

    Oh and can someone PLEASE tell him that he isn’t ACTUALLY Johnny Cash. He just played him in a movie… which wrapped several years ago.

    Elizabeth’s last blog post..Can you use that in a sentence, please??

  48. That’s just weird…why, WHY?

    That raffle sure is causing a ruckus this morning.

  49. Who announces their retirement like that? I mean if “I” was going to retire, I’d certainly let my people start rumors first … and then mysteriously disappear … for a day or two at LEAST. Then I would plan a press conference to announce it and then the next day, I’d secretly take the deal that Oprah’s production company offered to me and let the rumor mill start all over again.

    Gosh … doesn’t he know anything about Hollywood antics?

  50. Alas, the love between Joaquin will remain unrequited because I once took a vow to never date an actor turned musician again…damn that Hasselhoff.

    Mitzy’s last blog post..Decision ‘08 in South Dakota

  51. Wow, he wins the presidency and they throw in a free puppy? I’ve never gotten a free puppy when I started a new job. I usually just get pens and mousepads and stuff like that. Maybe this is part of some new economic stimulus package. Start a new job, get a free puppy. Not exactly sure how that stimulates the economy. Maybe something to do with more jobs for vets.

  54. Joaquin Phoenix retiring from acting is like me retiring from being a nuclear physicist.

  55. Like really? He’s retiring from acting? He’s sort of on the side of crazy isn’t he? I can never tell sometimes.

    Rachie’s last blog post..I rocked, as did the house.

  56. aww, dont pick on him. poor man is a little dis…disslex…desslecksick…dysle…hes just confused ok! we all get a bit confused at times…besides hes gorgeous, no one cares if his mom never taught him to read. ignorance is bliss. he has no idea that the guys thought it was funny to put it backwards, he just thought everyone was laughing at his clever little idea in the first place. ignorance is bliss.

    who did you say won the raffle? because honestly, i dont think its fair that he could buy more tickets than me…it just cause hes rich…thats some kind of “ist” isnt it?? “poorist” maybe? whose that guy that was talking about change? maybe he can make them stop bein “poorist”? o…wait…never mind, thats socialism.

    btw, i love you jenny. not in a weird way, at least i am pretty sure its not weird. no, its not weird (i heard if you say something in a difinitive way, ppl are less likely to question you…) its like boys and their “bromances”, you know? i have a “brocrush” on you. =] .

  57. I am so glad Obama won the raffle, but I heard he got a new job. Maybe now he can buy some new shoes. I wonder if Michelle will buy her inaugural gown at The Gap, too. Do you think Ann Nixon Cooper had to use a dead hobo finger to vote?

    And yeah, I was really hoping Obama was going to win that raffle for a puppy. I’m feeling much better over here knowing that he was the one.

  64. Those Obama kids can have my damn dog. Stupid hole-digging, squirrel-chasing, mutt. God love him.

    Carolyn Online’s last blog post..I voted for a hobo.

  65. Does it say anything about my intelligence that it took me a long time to realize what he meant by Bye! Good? Never mind. I don’t want to know the answer to that.

  66. I am laughing so hard, because I thought the little water bottle was a crushed Budweiser can. That would’ve been perfect.

    As we say in the South, “Bless his heart”. We don’t mean it, we just say it.

    Foxy’s last blog post..Please, please, let me get what I want

  67. That picture is hilarious.

    As for the Obama children and their dog… well, I’m a cat person, first. I do have 5 cats and 2 dogs, so I’ve still got enough love for slobbering, goofy mutts.

    My problem with the dog is that he announced it in the victory speech. It felt like I was watching G.W. Bush speak for a moment. I guess he was playing to the people for an “American as apple pie” moment. Blah. I’m glad for the change, though.

    Ian’s last blog post..Election Technology

  68. “he’s quite keen”. I’m told the brits say that the way the southerners say, “bless his heart”

  71. Oh thank God! They finally caught the guy who carved that backwards “B” onto that poor girl’s face.

  72. “Bye!Good” is the new “Hello, My name is Joaquin Phoenix and I’m a coke head”. Has a nice ring to it

  73. Perhaps he JUST got around to reading about Hugh Grant ‘semi-retiring’ a few years ago and wanted to follow in his footsteps.

    …then again he may have just been drunk off his ass. These crazy actors and their thinking they can just do what ever they want.

    Oh, and I hear this Obama guy (hope I spelled that right) won a race of some sort. Not sure what that’s all about.

  77. 78
    Just A. Reader

    He’s not really retiring. If he really wanted to quit, he would have written “GOOD BYE!” on his ass and mooned the whole AFI audience. Of course, people probably would have thought it said “GOODOBYE!” and wondered what that meant.

  78. “Like fried gold, stuffed in a crepe.”

    One of the few things you can’t get deep fried at the state fair.

    Steve’s last blog post..In Space, No One Can Hear You Sigh Despondently

  79. I just gave that guy 2 bucks. He lives under the I-20 overpass.

  80. I’m so glad that Joaquin is off of those drugs. That shit will kill you.

    Obama shoud get his kids a damn unicorn instead of a dog. A unicorn or maybe even a griffin.

  81. Well what the fuck!
    I was just planning on having him replace Brad Pitt as my lover!
    I have no luck with men! Or maybe he’ll have more time for me now?
    Nah! Then he’ll just be a civilian.

    Bee’s last blog post..My “Andy the Electrician” trumps your “Joe the Plumber”!

  82. Actually, Obama strikes me as more of the ground squirrell type, if you know what I mean.

  83. I’m sure he’s just dyslexic or maybe he thought Goodbye was like a name and he forgot the comma like: Bye, Good. Or he’s just an idiot…

  93. I’m SO relieved about our president-elect… but you gotta wonder if he might, in fact, be clinically insane to WANT the job at this point! AND… add a puppy to the mix… clearly bonkers. I imagine there will be “staff” to help with pup-elect.

    Lori’s last blog post..One Grateful American

  94. “As we say in the South, “Bless his heart”. We don’t mean it, we just say it.”

    Which most of the time is the polite way to say “What a dumbass!”

    Anyway, Joaquin’s not kind of an idiot. He’s definitely is an idiot. Why anounce retirement? Just take a break like the rest of Hollywood.

    I missed the puppy announcement since I was at work. How exciting for him! :o)

  95. Okay – Mom and I are arguing about the puppy. She thinks the daughters will get to pick. Something cute and fluffy, like poodle or Bichon or Lhasa whatchamacallit. I am thinking more “hound” – like a beagle, or maybe a terrier – or maybe just some stray mutt from the pound.

    HELP. Thoughts?

    Tiggerlane’s last blog post..NaBloPoMo Day Five – It’s Not Over, It’s Just Begun

  96. I think Obama won the publishers clearing house sweepstakes, and he is probably buying a huge house with the money. 5,000 dollars at a time.

    Also, Joaquin, highlight of his career = Signs.

  97. The hell????

    Oh Joaquin….how could you do this to me? How could you go from super sexy lip-scar guy to drugged out bye-good idiot guy. You were totally on my top 5 f-list too! Good day to you, sir!

    Kile’s last blog post..Tuesday Smackdown (Cancelled)

  100. Honestly? I really only like Joaquin Phoenix when I can pretend he’s Johnny Cash. Plus, as a general rule I don’t like people whose names are too hard to spell. Because then when I want to e-mail or text them or whatever, I have to keep checking and double checking and as ANOTHER general rule, I generally do not care enough about anyone I know for that kind of nonsense.

    Hey! My last blog post wasn’t real either.

  111. I’m just pissed that his recent weirdness has completely invalidated my desire for him to have his wicked, dirty way with me against a wall. Or on a car. Or in a graveyard. Or all three.

    I should have known lusting after him was a dangerous game. He’s very prone to bloat, which is possibly more unattractive than his obvious mental instability.

The man won an extreme kickboxing championship against an old guy who was statistically dead when they both signed up for the championship. Not that big of a deal, if you ask me. My three year-old could take down a statistically dead guy for fuck’s sake.

  123. Why do you have to say bye good? You aren’t trying to leave life in the spotlight, just changing which spotlight you want on you. Bye good means your packing up and going to live in the artic tundra, or the Australian Outback. Not just attempting to change spotlights.

    And seriously, how many of these actors music pans out? Thats why you went into acting to begin with…because your singing didn’t get you noticed.

    Here’s the deal. I’m not leaving this comment on anyone else’s blog but yours, and I’m only doing it to yours because I think you’ll come up with a better response than any other blogger. Except maybe Anne Nahm. And also New Girl. You guys would totally be neck and neck. Anyway, I just put a post up on my blog asking for secrets and confessions, to be published anonymously next week. It’s kind of complicated, but I lay it all out on my blog.

    Right now I sort of feel like I’m the loser nerd in high school attempting to ask the homecoming queen to prom. Now that I’ve made a total fool of myself, maybe I’ll go do it to Anne Nahm and New Girl.

  127. Whenever I think of knuckle tattoos, I recall some random stranger’s personal web site I accidentally stumbled upon years ago, where he said he had “HATE” tattooed on the knuckles of his left hand, and “AMBIVALENCE” tattooed on the knuckles of his right hand.

  128. He’s no Johnny Cash that’s for sure.

  129. I am sad to admit, I couldn’t make any sense of the fingers until halfway through the comments, here. Couldn’t even read them.
    *sigh* I shake my head at me.

    I was a little bit pregnant, once. Imagine telling your mom, at nineteen years old, that you really are a little bit pregnant. It was interesting.

  130. Good Lord. When I first saw this shot, I thought it was this guy in my building who’s always trying to sell me Herbalife products.

    “Concentrating on my musical career?” Yeah, that’d be Herbalife.

  132. That is AWESOME! You just know he was all, “I’m so freaking clever.” What a dope.

  133. I don’t care, he is still hot. I’m talking about Joaquin.

    I’m pretty happy about Obama too – puppies are fun! 🙂

  134. Love the blog!

  135. I’m late to the party, but love the profound political jargon!

  136. I saw that picture and just hoped for his sake that he was sticking out his left fist first for some reason, and you just had to be there. Anyway, I’m still not sure why this is news, apart from the fact that I’m sure he’ll be in three movies in 2010 no matter what he says now, but it’s still funny.

    And I believe Mr. Obama hasn’t won anything of note since the coveted title of Most Unlikely Name of a U.S. President Ever at his high school. I’m sure if he was to have received any further accolades in the 30 years since, the appropriate authorities would have alerted the media.

  137. First of all, I know there’s not much to work with when you only have eight fingers with which to get your message across, but seriously? I think he would have definitely benefitted from playing Scrabble a bit more.

    Secondly, what a tiny bottle of water! The only thing that could get any use of that would be a midget clone. In which case, I really hope he won’t be taking his master’s place in showbiz.

  138. Wow, 138 comments and counting! So, you re THE BLOGGESS…

    Poor Joaquin, he wrote that with his fists in his face…mybe he has lost some brain cells long the way…nah, I bet he’s just overcome with the emotion of leaving all that money behind.

  140. I love how he’s already committed to growing the “I’m such a serious musician no one understands me” beard.

  141. I know I’m late to the party and all, but just stumbled here from somewhere and saw that photo and well, THAT is Joaquin Phoenix?
    Seriously, that is the sweet guy from Parenthood and Signs and The Village? I know he’s a bit ‘quirky’ but I kinda liked him.
    Am I just being totally naive here?

  142. you know, it just occured to me that maybe he *overthought* it. maybe we arent giving him enough credit. i am told i overthink things alot, and i am sure that is more obvious because of this comment, but, really maybe he was using a mirror and was thinking that he had to be sure to have the letters right. technically, when using a mirror, he would have had them on the right side…the letters would have been a little backwards, but he was so focused…ok, i know, im stretching it to defend my own inability to let things go…huh…i tried…
