Oh-Mumma!

This great pic that appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald, can't go unnoticed:
  • A 17-year-old Brazilian woman became an overnight celebrity back home after apparently catching the president's eye at the G8 summit.

    Mayora Rodrigues Tavares was not so much the Girl from Ipanema as the Girl from Barro Vermelho (Red Clay), a residential neighbourhood in Rio de Janeiro.
    Tavares, a social activist, was reportedly chosen to take part in the Junior G8 summit in Italy after working on a human rights study in two notorious Rio shantytowns.

    In an interview with Brazilian television this month she said that travelling to the G8 was an "inexplicable feeling". Hundreds of readers contacted news websites to comment on the photo. "This young lady must be phenomenally beautiful," wrote one. "After all, even Sarkozy had to hang on to his jaw."

Me thinks it deserves your input and observation as well. With that said, I unveil the return of the CairnsBlog caption contest. Be clean-ish, be clever, but be funny. Oh, and behave.

  1. "Where's Bill when you need him Michelle?"
  2. "Can someone please get security, looks like they'll let the Bush daughters in anywhere."
  3. "Global warming? What global warming?"
  4. "Huh, glad that Councillor from Cairns isn't here at the G8!"
  5. ....your turn......

Pity you didn't see fit to include a link to the video that explains the photo as well. I guess that would have gotten in the way of your readers having the chance to guess/speculate about the situation without all the facts. Now where would be the fun in that…

“The facts CairnsBlog rejects are often the best!”

Thanks Forest G. It is sad when regional blogs go for the MSM (Mainstream Media) tabloid tackiness. Here is another article that further explains what actually happened. http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/07/10/one-more-take-on-that-photo/

Thanks Forest Gump for pointing out again what a manipulative dickhead the Cairns Blog is proving to be. Showing this photo,which ISN'T what some sick minds would like it to be, is continued rightwing wacko abuse of the American president. The video shows President Obama looking at the floor to find the name tags that were place there for the group picture.

This blog is going downhill very fast. I guess these anti-American attacks are the product of MM's friendship with serial loser Bryan Law.

It seems a few of you folk in Blogland have missed the point of this blog item. It is not a news item - it's a caption contest.


Mike has just cut an pasted from the Sydney Morning Herald; and they certainly provided no more or less than is shown here.


So Whinger Warrior and Forest Slump, lighten up, get off your let's bash everything tirade and see this particular item just for what it is.


My Caption: Obama (noticing a dollar bill on the ground) "I saw it first!"

Hey CBD Warror, found that gold chain yet, I heard you were still looking.......

My my CBD Warrior, such moral rectitude and prudery!

Oh Dear CBD Warrior. You have demonstrated once again why we all think you are a joke. On Sunday on ABC TV at 9.00am there is a show called the Insiders. This show is a must watch for anyone interested in Politics however it does appeal more to the intellectual type of person which is why you may have missed it last Sunday. On the show they showed the very same picture and made various remarks and then showed the video that explained what in fact Obama was looking at but it did not excuse Sarcozy. They too had a good laugh about it so why not let the ABC know your theory on abuse of the President. Come to think of it you might know an ex ABC Employee and she might be able to let them know although she appears to be ex everything. You really are a very sad loser CBD and definitely mirror your hero Alan Blake.

Sigh.....I wish we could kill off this American "winners and losers" mentality which is becoming so ingrained in the Australian psyche. It has permitted the rise of sociopaths and narcissists who are slowly but steadily destroying our egalitarian culture and way of life.

Caption entry:
"I'll give up smoking when she does!!"

Blog Commentary:
"lighten the f*ck up! We do respect Obama and what he's doing, but has it got to the point where you cant have a harmless little laugh at a leader's expense - because it's going put another 'political correcness' warrior's nose out of joint!?! From what I've seen, I think even Obama would see the funny side of this....
