STUPID NEWS PLAGUES COUNTRY

Mr. Blog to Mock Headlines Nationwide

___________________________________________________________________________________________

That is cool. I should try that sometime. No more of this “Mister” stuff, I’d be Commissioner Blog. Wow! That does wonders for the ego. “Commissioner Blog’s Tepid”- no, “Commissioner Blog’s Wild Ride.” Yeah, that’s what an empty title and no responsibility can do for a man.

Was a comment really necessary? I’d rather leave it to my imagination.

I imagine that he is wearing that mask to hide the burns and scars from the fire that took the lives of his family, yet he chose an evil clown mask as an ironic commentary on the innocence of the circus, an innocence that was hideously ripped away from his children. It both hides and expresses the pain he feels within.

Yeah, that’s it.

Normally I’d have taken out the name of the writer, but since she intended it for publication it is fair game.

I think, maybe, possibly, this is intended as a joke. Be that as it may, may I present it with an award?

Linda Goldstein, I hereby present to you,

Congratulations!

    When I first read this post, last night on my phone, I couldn’t stop staring at the clown mask. Not doing much better with it today. Couldn’t he have at least found an inside-out Kirk mask, like a decent serial killer?

      The article didn’t have a picture so I googled him and that picture came up. I didn’t belive it so I checked some more and yep, that’s the real guy.
