News, but not the serious kind
I’m dropping my pants, and I have a follow-up!
Hey Blog Guy, your post on news photography was very useful. On the topic of news, could you explain how we can find reporters we should really trust? You know, how do we know a true professional?
It’s pretty easy. Check their underpants.
Sure. The real pros will have underwear covered with signatures of people they’ve interviewed. The first hardball question we reporters ask is, “Will you sign my underpants?”
I had no idea! How about your own underwear?
The ones I’m wearing right now were autographed by Mother Teresa , Neil Armstrong and author Graham Greene. So yeah, this is a truly professional pair of undershorts. If you want to be a journalist, get yourself some fairly clean underwear and a marking pen, and get started!
