What's Next for VE?

I know…you’re wondering what happened to part 4 of the Return to the Lord of the Rings posts. Or (judging from comment numbers) perhaps you aren’t. And therein lays your opportunity to tell VE what you’d like to see on here next.

Go ahead, be bold, be creative, and be honest. Did you like something I’ve done and wanted to see more but never did? (Don’t worry…I’m working on the blog spoofs; they just take awhile) Here’s your chance to speak out. Do you have some ridiculous concept or topic you want me to cover? Here’s your chance to speak out.

In the meantime…let’s throw in some funny…because this is a humor blog after all.


These new first class bed chambers they have on some airlines? I’m wondering if the condoms are free or you have to purchase those for extra just like the headphones. Also…do you REALLY think they change the sheets between each set of flights? Yuck.

Of course, this is how North Korea started their nuclear buildup…they ordered all of these kits from the back of a comic book. My favorite thing on the box: “SAFE RADIOACTIVE MATERIALS”…yeah….

Hehe, first again........yup you got that right.

Mrsupole said...

I think once a week you should let us vote on a subject and then have you write a story about it. I like your stories very much and they are probably some of your best pieces.

So you just give us a list then we vote and you give us any kind of story you want.

Anyway just an idea and if others like it then please let VE know.

God bless.

Hehe.......second........

Mrsupole said...

Thirdly, you could also just respoof everyone again and see what you can do the second time. We seem to like those a lot. Or you could ask us to give you sites that are not on here and ask us which ones we would like you to spoof.

Just another thought.

God bless.

More swimsuit shots would be nice.

ettarose said...

I am just here for the ride. I like everything you write, so write on with your bad self!

Beth said...

How about “A Day In The Life Of VE” – exaggerated (of course) with that humour of yours. A wee bit of fiction is certainly allowed - and welcome!

The Incredible Woody said...

Sorry for not commenting. I'm not a Star Wars or Lord of the Rings person so I don't get the jokes. And thus have nothing clever to say. Not that I usually have anything clever to say...

Jacki said...

Since I have been gone a while, I missed out on a lot. I'm trying to ease back into blogging, but it ain't happening. With recovering from jet lag, "change of weather" flu, and Emma's first week of kindergarten, I was tired last week.

I like your blog the way it is, just write what comes natural.

Elizabeth said...

I think it would be fun to hear more about your travels.

English Mum said...

Yeh sorry, I'm not mad on Lord of the Rings either, but I like everything else. Just crack on. I'll be reading.

Quirkyloon said...

I vote for VE bowel movements.

VE said...

mrsupole - Those are good ideas. I'll put a poll out there with various topics to do a story about and you can vote. Look for it very soon. As to the respoofing...no, its difficult doing it the first time. However, I do like the idea of request sites to spoof; that is where I was going to take it when I finished the blog roll anyway.

VE said...

prefers - Hehe..nice try! You know how camera shy I am...

VE said...

ettarose - Good enough then.

VE said...

beth - Good idea. I'll work on it. Look for it about a week or two out or so.

VE said...

incredible woody - What? Neither Star Wars or LOTR? So you're the one they talk about... ;)

subtorp77 said...

"safe radioactive materiels"...now that's a bigger oxymoron than "Civil War"( thank you, George Carlin )...and I don't fly anymore but would have been nice to to have a bed on those loooong Trans-Atlantic flights...ahem...

If you get to part IV of the LOTR spoof, you can intro some new characters like, oh I dunno the Happy Days gang( ducks shoe and brick )....

VE said...

jacki - Oh, I'm not changing it up much...just soliciting requests.

VE said...

elizabeth - Travels, eh? I've got those...I'll try and add a funny one soon.

VE said...

english mum - I suspected that there were a few non-LOTR readers out there. That's ok...I'm always moving on.

VE said...

quirkyloon - It won't be pretty...you realize that, don't you?

VE said...

subtorp77 - Yes, I thought that was one of the top oxymorons too. I don't know if I'll make it to part 4 or not. Sounds like it's time to move on. I mean, Lucas waited a long time to make more than 3 himself...

Gladys said...

safe radiation materials? isn't that an oxymoron? Or just a moron?

I want to see VE write more stories

VE said...

gladys - I think definitely a moron. I am hearing requests for more stories; humor stories are difficult based on themes...but I'm willing to give it a shot. Writing seems to be in my blod so I might as well practice it.

Deb said...

Not a Lord of the Rings fan either. I like your blog the way it is but gotta admit you've got some good suggestions here by your readers. As long as you don't start liking Oprah, you're cool.

Bonnie the Boss said...

Love the atomic bomb kit! Cracks me up! I like silly toy packaging like on that kit. Have you done that before?

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

I like Beth's idea. A day in the life of VE.

Ronda Laveen said...

Condoms? I heard, that with all the amenity slashing to save the company money tactics and greener practices, they were recycling those peanut bags for that purpose.

But on second thought, that can't be true 'cause for the most part, they don't give out peanuts anymore.

Hit 40 said...

No email for my to spam your box? Too funny.

Post ideas...

A sex position a day for us?

Is animal sex really a good idea (bestiality)?

Does 69 really work for anyone? Success 69 stories.

Does it still freak you out that your parents do it?

Strangest place you had sex?

....you get the idea. Just turn it into a porn site. Then, you will have a few thousand followers.

Baino said...

As far as I'm concerned you can do no wrong! Great humour blog but I'm not very funny so no suggestions. And it's not that I don't like Lord of the Rings, just a bit short on reading time these days. Keep doing what you're doing . . .please?

Roy Scribner said...

I think anything less than turning full editorial control over to me is just perpetuating a reality that few can grasp in such a dynamic medium with the complexities of its...oh hell, I don't even know what I'm saying.

VE said...

deb - Don't worry...I've made fun of Oprah and been on the run from her...and I will take some of these suggestions and run with them.

VE said...

bonnie the boss - No, I've never made anything atomic...

VE said...

perpetual chocoholic - Be afraid, be very afraid! ha!

VE said...

ronda - Perhaps they don't give out peanuts anymore because they were too sticky from the new bags! ;)

VE said...

hit40 - Yeah, I don't want too many more followers...I mean look what happened to John Lennon...

VE said...

baino - I will...as long as its entertaining.

VE said...

roy - Ha! My gosh...I thought you were running for office there or something!

ReformingGeek said...

Spoof Oprah's blog. Oh wait. Does she have one? Does anyone care?

I can go for that airline "bed"!

Serena said...

I needed a laugh tonight and, as always, you delivered. As to what you've done before and should cover in the future, I say just keep on doing what you do. It works.:)

Jaime said...

i liked the ridiculous situations you gave everyone and they all wrote what they'd do... (and that's an easy post for you - you don't actually have to write anything)

mama-face said...

Do not change a thing. That's what I said.

Kurt said...

You tell me and I'll tell you.

VE said...

serena - Ok then...at least you got a laugh out of my fill-in humor piece

jaime - Those were fun but they got pretty long; I think I did too many.

mama-face - As if there were a pattern to this blog!

kurt - I'd tell you...but then I'd have to kill you. It's a need-to-know thing...

Anne said...

i'd like you to discuss where tupperware lids go, i mean, i know they escape with the socks but, where do they go?

VE said...

anne - That's a good one. I'll have the gnomes investigate

Janna said...

I like the "day in the life of VE" suggestion.

And the idea of hearing more about your travels. This means I wanna hear about the WEIRD stuff you do that nobody else on the planet would ever think of while away from the comfort of their own continent.

Oddly, even the "VE bowel movement" suggestion sounds strangely interesting. Not sure if that means I need therapy or not.

Maureen said...

Hahahahaha Incredible Woody is sooo funny. Not into Star Wars or LOTR...

What? He was serious?

Poor guy.

VE said...

janna - Good suggestions. Give me a few days and I'll get to work on them. Well, the bowel movement... I might have to work on that one sooner. ;)

maureen - I cannot be responsible for my readers tastes...I mean come on; they're all reading my blog!

unfinishedrambler said...

I was stuck back on the swimsuit comment made by Meg (Prefers Her Fantasy Life). I thought, at first, it was female swimsuit models and then realized she was talking about YOU. Oh, no. Please, not that, but female swimsuit models, especially from SI, would be fine. :)

VE said...

unfinishedrambler - Don't worry... VE is fairly camera shy. I'd put hot model pics on here but they get to funny about me taking naked pictures of them! Sheesh!
