News, but not the serious kind
Get out your daggers, kids!
Okay staff, we’ve been hired by the anti-government faction over in Yemen to get some publicity for their cause.
So, let’s brainstorm this thing. Who’s got some ideas? Lamar?
Yeah, Boss. I was thinking, what if they were to goof it up a little in their protests?
You know, bring in some really weird people, to get the media to notice them.
How goofy would it have to get, Lamar?
I think it would have to be a little goofier than that, Lamar, this is 2011, and Donald Trump may be running for president.
Okay, well, what if some of them scotch-taped big loaves of bread to their ears?
Now THAT’S goofy, Lamar! I like it! That could even get us into that moronic Odd Blog you’re always reading. What else have you got?
That’s brilliant! Kids with daggers! Who wouldn’t love to see that? This is great stuff, Lamar! You’ve outdone yourself!
Jeez, thanks, Boss, but I haven’t even got to the part about the snake-biters yet….
