If all news were like this, I would be glued 24/7. What if we staged the 'real" news with the likes of tabloid talk shows? OMG- let's talk ratings!

Apparently FOX and CNN both discovered that the "news" is a real downer that tends to drive away viewers. CNN addressed the problem by dividing their coverage between the war in Iraq, Britney's children, and a mule that learned how to drive a car.

FOX, on the other hand, decided to take a "half full glass" approach and is now attempting to do stories on all the cars in Iraq that *haven't* exploded and killed people. That is, when they're not busy trying to expose the oppressive liberal Democrat regime that came into power in 2006, yet is so unbelievably mighty that it caused all the problems Bush has faced since 2000. Maybe Nobel Prize winner Al Gore invented a time machine...

And in case you're wondering, the final news item scrolling along the bottom of the screen was going to read "HILLARY ORDERS PUPPIES SHREDDED TO FUEL BIBLE BURNING MACHINES," but I ran out of room :-(

Professor said...

Mule driving a car? Was this a real story? Are you teasing me? Puppies burned to fuel Bible burning machine? Uh man, it's kittens that fuel the Bible burning machine! Kittens!

Professor said...

I've been skimming your archives... funny stuff! But alas, a horrible discovery! you're one of those who blogs and then stops for HUGE periods of time leaving us readers to wonder if you are dead or ever coming back... oh no- don't do it again!How will I ever continue my affair with your blog if that happens?

Kittens are the traditional fuel for Bible burning machines, but with all the trouble in the Middle East, Hillary is all about exploring alternative sources. You know, sort of like Bush's plan to develop a Hum-V that runs on switch grass and orphans.

I know. I'm a total blog tease. At one time, my faithful readers numbered into the elevens and twelves, but now my frequent falling off of the blog wagon has driven them away. But between recent personal issues, the upcoming elections, and my rediscovered hatred for all things Hannity & Colmes, I think I might just be able to dig up enough vitriol to sustain me through 2008.

(Did you notice I used the word "vitriol"? I even looked it up to make sure I was using it correctly. Desperately trying to impress the English teacher here ;-)

Professor said...

She is completely impressed... :)

Vitriol... Isn't that the lubricant Americans put in their automobile engines during WWII?
