OT Shocking News!

Recommended Posts


Ah yes. The self-inflicted problem of "How do we fill 24 hours up with what we call news?"

My tagline has been, "ALERT! CAT IN TREE IN PODUNK ILLINOIS! OFFICIALS HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED! WE'LL KEEP YOU UP TO DATE AS THIS DANGEROUS SITUATION DEVELOPS!"

 

 

This video is somewhat reminiscent of the time back during the late '80's when Public Broadcasting here in the US was running show after show about some aspect or another of the Serengeti.

One Sunday afternoon in the funny papers, cartoonist Gary Larson ran a cartoon of a large French Poodle sitting on a mound surrounded by the bones of other animals with the caption,

"POODLES OF THE SERENGETI!!!"

 

It's always nice when your opinion is expressed by someone who has access to mass dissemination.

I personaly enjoy the "Live Hurricane Coverage", where some poor scmuck who aspires to be an anchorman someday. Is hanging onto the parking meter with one arm, holding the microphone with his free hand, both feet are completely off the ground, probably his body is parallel to the ground.

He is talking to you with the heavy WIRED microphone, partially because the wireless mike is sputtering with the atmospheric conditions, and partially because that cable might be his lifeline, if his hold on that parking meter ever fails, or if the whole thing get's wrenched from the ground.

That blur of color that just missed his head is a Volvo or somebodies patio table.

 

The picture then shifts back to the studio, the reporter in safety says: "We'll be back to Jim shortly" but they never do :clapping:
