Calling George Clooney

Even though I am not in a laughing mood after the game, somehow I managed to find myself cracking up at this piece I just read:

Nigerians Seek Clooney as Mediator

Yes, folks- they are calling on George Clooney, the actor, to go and broker a peace deal in Nigeria between the terrorists and the corrupt government running Nigeria.

These guys in Nigeria are serious too-

"Mr. Clooney, MEND extends an invitation to you to see things for yourself and is willing to work with you and other credible peace makers of international repute to stop Nigeria from plunging into the abyss of war," the group said in a statement e-mailed to reporters.

Credible peace maker of international repute????

What has George ever done that makes him a credible peace maker of international repute?

Maybe someone should tell these guys that Clooney is really a actor and a international playboy!

Hopefully wiser thinking will prevail. This does not sound like a safe place for an international playboy to be playing-

Nearly 200 foreign workers have been kidnapped in the region in the past two years; they normally are released unharmed after a ransom is paid.

Perhaps someone should inform the Nigerian government that George Clooney is not really a doctor either, he just played one on TV.

TV is not real.
