About John Shore

More and more I'm communicating with my readers through my free (and ad-free) email newsletter, which is just a simple, direct and personal email from me that I send out every three weeks or so. If you would like to receive this email in your inbox, subscribe to it on my website, or by using the subscription box about halfway down the column on the right. I wouldn't think of using your email address for anything but my e-newsletter (to which you can always unsubscribe with the click of a button). Thanks, and looking forward to communicating with you in this more intimate way.

    I still wouldn't want any prize that doesn't come with a bell!

    But in your version, at least he gets a peach.

    "We’re bombing the moon?"

    … I love it! Brilliant little side joke there!

    Actually, I kind of want a Nobel Peach Prize, with or without a crown.

    Hey, its on the front page in our newspapers too

    You fixed one of the peaches. The fifth stanza from the bottom still has the fuzz on it.

    OH MY GOD! This is insane. Lemme go fix this. I now owe YOU $50, Brian.

    Barack: But, How. . .? Me?

    Michelle: Don't you remember?. It' the politics st_p!

    Barack: But, How. . .? Me?

    Michelle: [kissing him] It’s not about what you’ve yet to do, baby. It’s about what you’ve done thus far.They love how you're trying to make USA the new Sweden

    Actually, I thought that the "Peach Prize" joke was deliberate, sort of a "does this other award come with a crown" thing combined with sleep-speak.

    I guess I should try out for work as a political spin-doctor, huh?

    My worldview is shattered …

    Wickle: Beautiful.

    LaToya: Jesus said the truth would set us free. So I thought I'd test that a little.

  • http://www.johnshore.wordpress.com John Shore

    Oh, thank GOD you (cleverly) alerted me that in the piece I’d misspelled “peace” “peach.” I KEPT DOING THAT! It’s the weirdest thing: my brain kept typing “peace,” but my fingers kept typing “peach.” You just saved me a LOT of embarrassment, Brian. Thank you!

  • barkha

    Mr S

    this is brilliant

    love your creativity

  • Leonardo

    Totally agree with barkha. I used it with some friends, (explaining that I read it in your blog). It’s brilliant. Agree or disagree, with some posts, I enjoy

    A leader who hasn’t gotten us out of any of our conflicts wins the Peace Prize — delicious irony!

    What’s next, Glenn Beck getting an honorary doctorate?

    Man, this was some really funny stuff. I wish I was that gifted! Well done!

    Barack: ” But don’t you think they could have just told me about this when i was in Switzerland a few weeks ago. Could have shuttled right over to Sweden. Could have killed two birds with one stone. Now i gotta get a on another f****** plane for 14 hours? You go.”

  • http://living3dfaith.blogspot.com/ Tim

    Maybe Sweden was hoping some sort of "Field of Dreams" factor might come into play if they gave Obama the Peace prize. "If we give it…peace will come!"

    It's them thar alien critters on the dark side of the moon in reptilian bodies that are shape-shifters he's dreaming of going after now. LOL! Too much overdose on "David Icke," (http://www.davidicke.com/) that 'tis a symptom of, for sure! Eh! I figured I had to do an add-on to the "We're bombing the moon?" sleep talk.

  • Robert Meek

    ROFT, LOL, LMAO. Aw, you gotta leave some of them there "Freudian slips" in now, Mr. Shore! :)

  • Gina Powers

    Hee! "Instant oatmeal"…..another great one, John….peaches or no peaches…;).

    Oh, and Redlefty–holy buckets, don't scare me like that! lol ;).

    "Barack: I AM a pretty peaceful guy.

    Michelle: You are. And you’re very noble.

    Barack: And they DID give it to Kissinger.

    Michelle: There you go."

    How do you manage to make this 'couple-speak' sound realistic while simultaneously making it so freaking funny?
