On Satire Bits: Vol. 66

How’s your week going? A few days of fabulous weather has blessed Cincinnati, so golf was wonderful tonight. If was cloudy, comfortable temps, played with good people, and I played very well.

Otherwise, I’ve been keeping busy enough to cut into my blog visits. 😦 Plus, we received notification that handbell rehearsals start in 3 weeks!

On to your mid-week dose of satire. I’m breaking tradition this week as these are not from The Onion. Well, I wrote these about readers here. Do you know any of these bloggers? Are you one of the ten? Go ahead, make your guesses, but I will return later with the answers in a comment.

Have a good rest of the week.

1) Local Promotes Establishing Peaceful Zones on LA Rush-Hour Freeway

2) Northern Virginia Blogger Warns Against Washington Becoming Political

3) Canadian Proclaims All Trademarks, Patents, and Copyrights Throughout the World are His upon Request

4) New NYC Tour Operator Creates Giving the Finger Tour

5) Photographer Revealed to be Alien Squirrel

6) Artist Admit to Psych Ward for Producing Drawing without Breasts, Faces, or Sexual Innuendos

7) Blogger Wins World Chortling Championship

8) Stunt Enthusiast Preparing to Surf Mudslide

9) NYC Tree Decorator Uses Bag Lady as Ornament

10) Flash in Pan – not genetics or coloring – Changes Hair to Red

    • Eleanor,
      I can think of at least one of your readers is on the list. I was going to include yours, but held it back for a future list (yes, I have many of them).

      I like the new Gravitar!


  1. Am I number 2 or number 7?

    And are you trying to get back into my good graces? Alan! Alan! Alan! etc. etc.

    (You do the Onion Proud — you know what they say, in order to write well like the Onion you need to read the Onion.)


  2. “New NYC Tour Operator Creates Giving the Finger Tour” LMAO. I couldn’t stop laughing at this. Giving the finger sometimes is a way of life here in NYC LOL. Loved this one. I hope your week is going well Frank


  3. Hmm…nothing about Spicy Bandleades takes gibbons to Julliard for banjo lessons…
    I saw Red and Zannyro for sure, possibly Erickson.
    Please tell me surfing a mudslide is me!!!!!! (How’d I do? Did I wreck? I bet I wrecked!)

    (Looking forward to the IDs so I can check out the blogs I don’t know!)


  4. These are really funny, Frank. The mention of L.A. may have suggested me…and I do have to do some quick out-of-body exercises to stay sane on our freeways. Otherwise I’m out-of-my-mind! LOL! If not me, then I need to meet this person. Maybe we can carpool. hahaha!


    • Debra,
      Being out-of-your mind while driving makes you the perfect candidate for the peaceful zone …. the perfect place to breathe lighter. … but I will post (in a comment and/or as links) the answers soon.


  5. Congratulations to Elyse, Guapo, and Debra who got themselves … and to Guapo for identifying the most correctly … and to Kanerva for a close second … and the only one to get Le Clown.

    Thanks to all for the effort. I will sneak another set in sometime in the future.


  6. WELL DRAT! I only got El Guapo!!!!!! You are too much Frank! Your wit is exceeded only by your great ice cream eating and dancing abilities!!! Not to mention your amazing ability to recognize and prove the existence of alien squirrels!!! WELL DONE!! (Thanks for including me in the fun Frank!!)


  7. I am so sad that I didn’t see this post on the day you published it, Frank. These were great–I wouldn’t have been able to guess all of them since I don’t follow every one of these bloggers (will have to rectify this), but I definitely would have guessed the ones for Elyse, Guapo and Lame Adventures, and Le Clown. The one for GingerFightback is good too, but I would probably not have guessed that one because of its subtlety!


    • Weebs,
      I’m just glad you saw this one. Looks like you did a great job with the pics … and I assume you picked your own. After all, that’s would be a great gig for you. Hope all is well!
