Answers to Your "Ask Bilbo" Questions

Last Monday, lacking any better ideas for a post, I decided to dust off a topic I used back in 2011. At that time, I offered to answer any reasonable question anyone sent in, and ended up getting enough questions for two more posts.

This time, I only got four questions back ... I guess many of you were afraid of what I might say. Here are the questions and my responses:

Mike had two questions. The first was, "What would it take to get you to vote for Trump? My answer: a lobotomy*. The second was, "Should Bilbo go back to work?" The answer to that one is: only if our savings run out or if the Republicans win the election and destroy Social Security.

Goodstuff asked, "Does my blog make me look weird?" In order to answer his question, I had to check out his blog - Goodstuff's Cyber World. My answer: yes. But it's a good weird.

My friend Mary in Germany sent an e-mail in which she asked, "You're good with words. What is the Indian tourist office trying to say?" Attached to the e-mail was this jpg:

Well, Mary, all I can say is that I assume they want us to visit Varanasi**, and that Donald Trump is writing their advertising copy.

If anyone has any more "Ask Bilbo" questions, go ahead and send them in; I'll answer them as they arrive.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.


* Angel didn't ask a question of her own, but left a comment in which she answered Mike's question with "extreme duress." 

** A city also known as Benares, located on the Ganges River in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. It contains more than 2,000 Hindu temples and is considered to be the spiritual capital of India.



thanks - my wife agrees with you

lobotomy - ha ha ha...good one. I think his followers already have had one.

Actually, no, no lobotomy here. I on the other hand am totally freaked out with Hillary in the White House. Isn't it great that we all have our opinions?

It was a different crowd way back in 11.
