I’m #1 (or first if you prefer that)

December 18, 2007 | Guest blogger

Hi. My name is Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah. You may know me from here or here or here or… whatever. You probably either know me already or could care less about my over exposure on the interweb.

Anyway, I have been selected (randomly or otherwise, I have no idea how she did it) as Becky’s first guest blogger while she freezes her butt off in Scandinavia.

Right. So the guest post. I wasn’t exactly sure what to write about. I could tell you about how yesterday was my birthday and it was also Becky’s birthday and how we share a birthday with Bob Guccione of Hustler magazine fame.

(Heh. You are welcome for all of the hits you will get for people searching for Bob, or Hustler.)

I could delve into my Political Science background and the fact that I live outside of Washington D.C. seeing as how this is a pretty political blog, but then I realized I would have to admit what a slacker I have been in actually following current events.

I could tell you about how Becky and I met while we were both still pregnant with twins.

I could talk about how Becky and I got into a drunken argument about insurance companies and universal health care last time she came to visit me.

But instead of any of those relevant things, I will tell you my very favorite joke:

A penguin is driving through the desert when his car breaks down. He gets his car towed and the mechanic says it is going to take him about an hour to get the car fixed so the penguin goes next door to get some ice cream.

Penguins love ice cream.

The penguin orders a double scoop of vanilla in a bowl. It is delicious ice cream but the penguin makes a terrible mess trying to eat it.

(Penguins don’t have thumbs. They can’t use spoons.)

Then penguin goes back to the mechanic to see what is going on with his car.

“Well,” says the mechanic, “It looks like you blew a seal.”

“Nah,” says the penguin, “It’s just ice cream.”

    Ok, that made me laugh. I didn’t want to, but I did.

    LOL – you might make Santa’s naughty list but I laughed anyway.

    Glad I followed you here to read the joke. Am wondering what all the Hustler searchers will think of it. I bet they’ll love it. But they’ll probably change it to Heidi and capitalize the “S” in seal.

  6. Chris Cactus Says:

    There is a reason I love Sarah. It’s exemplified by this post.

  7. Genie Says:

    Ha! I like the joke, too, Sarah. I think the people who come over here looking for news of Bob G. will be quite pleased. :-)

  8. Kevin Says:

    Classic.
    Even though I knew the joke, I giggled.
