Michelle Obama Needs Me. She Really, Really Needs Me. Please Advise.

She ... initially confused me with Tom Hanks.

I think we have all been there.

My three cents (inflation)....

Send him the 3 bucks. Given your close relationship with La Moosh, she'll probably send you a pair of her old slacks. You could make a cover for your car. And/or a tent. Possibly a set of pillow cases. Enough left over for a natty tie.

Hmm! A McDonald's burger, fries and drink for $3 or a donation to the Oburger? I'm thinking, I'm thinking.

If you don't respond she may never spek to you again. I should be that lucky.

Let me thinK. $3 to re-elect an America-hating, Marxist-loving, Mohammedan-bowing person of unknown history and his officious spouse? Or do I drive to the store and buy a Mega Millions ticket for the $476 million dollar jackpot and a bag of Skittles, while carrying my HK-45 with 12-round clip, of course. Car keys...

Here's how I handle donation requests from the unreliable GOP-ers. I send a dollar and on that dollar is the helpful and largely written suggestion "F U RINO"

Maybe "F U Fascist" fits here.

Try one of these

I am deeply touched by your relationship with Lady M, Gerard. I know it is special, because she has never mentioned it to me.

Her request for the payment of $3.00 to support Big Guy and strengthen the relationship does not seem unreasonable, especially in these economically challenging times. Ms. Fluke would have expected at least 1000 times more.

A relationship like this comes only once in a lifetime. I HOPE.


P.S. I don’t know how to break this to you, butt she may be two timing you. Raj got the same email.

Never mind this donation crap, Gerard. We want to see the letters you have been writing that keep B-Ho up late at night.

Send three dollars in Monopoly money.

When I get donation requests, I ask them for their Grizzly Inc. account number. If they say that they don't have one, I offer to send them an application, to be filled out in triplicate, and submitted along with a non-refundable $50 application fee, of course. (After all, it's grueling work to do the background check, keeps me up late at night, etc.)

Here, money that is specifically designed for the current crisis:

I say send $1 and hope that "my belle" will continue your long-distance relationship.

Hell No.

You do what you have to do man, but at all costs, don't let her hold it against you!!

I sincerely hope the author will stay safe. And thank you, oh thank you. Just when the insanity seemed as high as the Vanilla Sky, you have restored my perspective.

Three bucks? Is BHO pimping her out for campaign loot?

Posted by Peccable at March 30, 2012 4:57 AM

Gerard: She's two-timing us! I got the same email!

Mayhaps 'tis the Axel rod itself he rides.
