Dancing with the Stars!

Posted Wednesday, October 29, 2008, at 7:04 AM

Minnie O'Pausal, well-known blogster for the Dexter Statesman, has been discovered dancing with an unknown partner on the popular television series "Dancing with the Stars."
Readers of the popular blog "A Moment with Minnie" will be glad to hear that their beloved mental health counselor is not only alive and well, the 92-year-old O'Pausal has been accepted as a contestant on the immensely popular television series, "Dancing with the Stars."

"We are pleased that our long-time blogger and night cleaning lady has found an outlet for the amazing energy which she discovered in her many anti-aging experiments," stated a Statesman official, who wished to remain anonymous.

In recent weeks, feminine supporters of Ms. O'Pausal had feared foul play, after Ms. O'Pausal failed to show up for her regular Tuesday night class entitled "Brain and Body Rejuvenation Techniques for the over-50."

Ms. O'Pausal was the subject of two demonstrations by her supporters. On Wednesday, Oct. 15, 2008, the women made history by appearing outside the office of the Statesman with signs, demanding her freedom. On the following Tuesday, Oct. 21, 2008, organizers met at the Statesman office for a candlelight vigil, during which they marched on foot to the police station.

As a result of this remarkable civil disturbance, several of the ladies were arrested and put in jail, along with various and sundry barnyard animals who accompanied them.

Recent photos of these arrests have surfaced and will be posted at a later date.

At this point, it is not known if the feisty Ms. O'Pausal will return to her job at the Statesman, or if she will join her dancing partner (shown above) for an extended road trip across the United States.

Well, I'm sure Cloris "Minnie" O'Pausal will be back soon,as her stint on DWTS is over. I certainly won't watch it,as she was the only entertainment that show ever had.

I hope our Minnie won't go too Hollywood on us,how are we going to keep her down on the farm,now that she's seen the bright lights of the city?

I imagine she's a regular at the Viper Room,gets her spray on tan done by the Ollie girls at Sunset Tan,had a little something-something done by Dr.90210 Rey, maybe a private tramp stamp inked by L.A. Ink artist Kat VonD herself?

She's probably buying her clothes at Dash,extolling the wonders of "Skinny Cows" to the entire Kardashian Klan,as she fights off inappropriate advances by Bruce and Brody Jenner!

What wondrous tales will she have-is she a Starter Wife yet? Has she been to Celebrity Rehab yet,with Dr.Drew and his gang of misfits,or is she chilling with the paps from TMZ?

Stop torturing us and blog already,Minnie!
