Out of the Blue

It was a good weekend here at the BlueTower. Of course there was rejoicing at the outcome of the NFC championship game, but it was also a perfectly timed snowstorm, as it tapered off around midday on Saturday, which actually inspired some of the local youth to seek shoveling work. We hired an earnest young lad to dig out the walk and MrsBlue's car, paid him twice as much as he was asking, and were pleased to have gotten such a bargain. Sometimes things just work out. I made the mistake of mentioning how happy I was at the storm's timing to a neighbor, forgetting he was a schoolteacher, who felt the opposite way about how it all worked out, since if the storm came on a weekday, he'd have gotten a day off. Oh well.

Yes, but I think the point of the image is it has to be the face combined with the words. I don't know if that's true of everyone. If they did this with say, Tom Cruise I doubt I'd read it with his voice. However Morgan's done a lot of documentary work as well so when I first saw this I automatically started reading it imaging his voice and cadence while doing so which made me laugh. I think it also has to match stylisticly as well. It was written in a way that sounds like something Morgan Freeman would say. If you put in Jack Nicholson's face it wouldn't work because it's not the sort of speech you'd expect to hear from him. Anyway, it'd be interesting to try some experiments with other famous people with this sort of thing. And the titty sprinkles is really the icing on the cake.
