News, but not the serious kind
Now, arriving on the red carpet is…uh-oh…
Okay, this is SOMEBODY’S fault, and they’re gonna pay! What went wrong?
I’m SO sorry, Boss! It sounded like a great idea. What a striking sight on the red carpet at Cannes, movie star Naomi Watts, arriving astride the shoulders of a Daphne Burki…
Right. We spent a fortune attaching Naomi’s flashy red stilettos to the shoulders of Daphne Burki’s leather jacket… We made sure those shoes would stay on the jacket, no matter what! Didn’t we?
That’s right, Boss. I’ve got the check list right here, and we triple-tested it. Look here, every single task is checked….
No it’s not. What’s this last thing at the bottom of the second page? I can’t read it.
Well, dammit, what does it say?
Um, it says, “Have Lamar fasten Naomi’s ankle straps BEFORE Daphne goes through the hotel ballroom with the big ceiling fans.” Say, have any of you guys seen Lamar?
