News, but not the serious kind
Change the blog? Better latte than never
Happy New Year, Blog Guy. It’s me, your editor.
Er, well, I wanted to talk to you about that. The publisher has a few ideas for tweaking your content slightly.
Tweaking? But we’ve done pretty well with the whole smartass, absurd, ironic, goofy photo thing, with some outrageous puns thrown in.
The publisher would like to see you go a little more in the direction of, um, coffee bean transport news.
Excuse me? Did you say coffee bean transport news?
Yeah. You know, how do those beans get from where they grow to your cup in the morning, and stuff like that.
His theory is that folks want a coffee bean news blog, with no puns whatsoever.
His theory? Does he have any grounds?
Well, the focus group found that… Hey, grounds! I get it, another coffee pun!
You stop this nonsense right now, Blog Guy, or you’ll lose your company car and club membership!
Oh. So any more coffee puns and you’ll take away my perks?
