News, but not the serious kind
We’re going down! Is this blog finished?
Blog Guy, it’s me, your editor. Did you see that incredible season finale of the hit series Mad Men, with that cliffhanger where Don Draper…
Stop, Boss! We don’t allow spoilers here.
Oh. Anyway, I was thinking since your last blog of the season is coming up, you could end it with some cliffhangers so people would come back next season.
Gosh Boss, I wasn’t even aware we HAD blog seasons. Sure, there’s plenty of exciting unresolved stuff going on for regular readers.
The new prototype of my plane, the Basler BT-67, is crossing the Atlantic filled with people on their way to overseas jobs they’ve read about here, see. Like Unexploded Explosives Collectors, Fish Sniffers, Boat Trackers, Chest Checkers.
This all sounds great, Bob, but can you also weave in a story line about your popular Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop, in Washington DC?
You bet! Right now the museum is fighting for its life, since the Russian mob opened a competing Goofy Face Museum across town. It’s filled with hideously contorted, grotesque human faces.
Really? Where would the Russian mob get enough photos like that to compete with you?
Uh, they’re not using photos, Boss.
Ouch. Now listen, I want you and Lamar to be in dire jeopardy in the cliffhanger, too.
Sure Boss, I guess we could eat some of the Museum’s doughnuts. Say, when does the new season start?
Tomorrow. Who do you think you work for, AMC?
