  1. Hodink says:

    “This week, I introduce to you my financial advisor, Warren Buffett. For fun, we are going to introduce advisors named Warren every week. Next week, it will be my script, ooops, speech writer, Warren Beatty, which should be interesting. Week after that, it will be my musical slogan advisor, Warren Zevon. And then, the next week, Jennifer Warren will get together with Bill Medley to sing ‘(I’ve Had)The Time Of My Life’ just because I love that song, don’t you? We’ll have other surprises. And soon, with them, I’ll be back.”

  2. Paul says:

    Tell me that again Warren- Are we raising taxes or cutting taxes?

  3. Paul says:

    (as an aside) You would think with all of Buffet’s money he would have a nicer suit huh?

  4. Warren, if you tell another reporter taxes are too low you’re terminated.

  5. Rachel Edith says:

    “Pssssst. Next, let’s have Don Ho.
    Then, Henry Kissinger.
    Also, is Leslie Uggams here yet?”

  6. Chortle says:

    “I believe that we should agree to disagree on taxes.”

  7. Randy R. says:

    Warren: “Alright, Arnie, tell me again what your political agenda is?”

    Arnold: “To destroy my enemies, raze their villages, and hear the lamentations of their women.”

    Warren: “Works for me. I’m onboard.”

  8. John Lemon says:

    “Hey Schultzie, look! An all-you-can-eat Buffett.”

  9. John Lemon says:


    An aside to your aside. If you look at how the fabric folds and lays on him, combined with the sheen, it is likely to be a silk-blend blazer (good for summer heat). I would bet that Arnie’s suit is less expensive as it looks like a higher wool blend.

  10. Hermoine says:

    “I am tired of politics already. Get my Hummer H2 and if I can stand it again later, I’ll be back.”

  11. Bouhaki says:

    “Yah, people ask how am I qualified to run for governor? I ask, who else is da big movie star as I am? If you want to run against me and win, prove what you can do. Then, we talk.”

  12. Rodney Dill says:

    “Oh Yeah!, If you’re so Shmart, how come your jacket and pants don’t even match.”

  13. Steven says:

    “I thought I had hired Jimmy Buffet!”

  14. Steven says:

    “Mention Prop 13 again and I will replace you with Jimmy Buffet!”

  15. LittleA says:

    Keep smiling so they won’t suspect our hostile takeover.

  16. Dodd says:

    Hey, look! It’s Charo!

  17. Rachel Edith says:

    “Get somebody new, I tell you.
    This Buffett guy is saying the wrong stuff.”

  18. Chortle says:

    “Cal-ee-funia, that how you say it? I don’t care. That how I say it.”

  19. “Didn’t I tell you they’d go nuts about the push-ups?! Next time, I’ll have Georgie run laps around the motorcade!”

    (Incidentally, James, Schwarzenegger’s New Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilders contains a very similar photo, in which Schwarzenegger apparently tells a joke to a nearby bodybuilding opponent, who subsequently laughed so hard that he failed to strike an appropriate pose, costing him victory. It’s under the section “Psychological Warfare.” I wrote about this tactic in the San Francisco Chronicle a few weeks back.

  20. Paul says:

    Hmmmm I dunno John— From here, Buffet’s duds look cheap…

    Or maybe it is just hard to look good next to a former Mr. Universe??? LOL


  21. Big Lou from Brooklyn says:

    “Hi, my name is Hans …”
    “And my name is Franz …”
    “And we’re here to pump your economy up!”
    “Ja ja. Silly little girly state economy”
    “Ja, don’t even have enough electricty to ride a bicycle.”
    “How can you act all proud with your flabby little state. Ja, even the Iraqis have more power.”
    “Ja, so hear me now but believe me later, only nancy boys with tiny biceps vote for Davis”
    “Are you a nancy boy?”
