News, but not the serious kind
Scram! It’s Jeannie Lamborghini!
Note to TV producers: The bidding starts today on a new super-hit series. It’s an action cop show called Jeannie Lamborghini, and it’s all true. And by “all true,” I mean some of it is true.
The Italian police have their own Lamborghini sports car for police work. It can go 203 miles an hour, perfect for catching getaway cars that can only hit 200. It has gadgets galore, even a heart defibrillator, which of course will be used to zap street scum in every episode.
Picture this sleek baby screeching along mountain roads and hairpin turns with spunky, wise-cracking cop Jeannie Lamborghini at the wheel! If you want a different car, I’ve also registered Annette Corvette and Portia Porsche.
I see Jeannie played by someone like Angelina Jolie, but with fewer children. And the car could maybe have a hotline to Jeannie’s secret boss, a hip young black President. Networks, take out your checkbooks!
