News, but not the serious kind
That fake blood looks SO real!
Okay group, the Rome Tourist Board hired us to crisis manage this horrible PR problem in the middle of tourist season. Their security guards are having a job action at one of the most popular attractions, the Colosseum.
Getting those protesting guards to leave the Colosseum could turn very ugly, but we’ve come up with a plan.
We’ve contacted some zoos in the area, and they are going to rent us some lions. Then we’ll send the lions into the Colosseum for a “historical reenactment” of those 2,000 year-old events we all know about.
If it’s as popular as we hope, it could be a regular attraction.
Earl, how are you coming along with the ESPN negotiations? They’re gonna have to pay through the eyeballs to show this one live, let me tell you!
