News, but not the serious kind
Who has the worst taste on earth?
Knock-knock! Hello, are you Aisha, the daughter of fugitive strongman Muammar Gaddafi?
I believe I’m expected. I’m Lamar, the writer from “Extremely Poor Taste” magazine. I’m here for a tour of your home.
Oh yes, do come in please, Lamar. I’m so honored that your magazine is doing a cover story on my place, and I……
YOWZA! What is that big butt-ugly piece of furniture?
That’s just my golden sofa, with a golden statue of me, attached. Do you like it?
I don’t believe I’ve ever seen anything so grotesque before, Aisha, and I’ve seen some pretty bad stuff, what with writing for “Extremely Poor Taste.” Your decor is a monumental crapfest.
Oh, you flatter me so, Lamar! Would you care for some sliced Spam with my special minty Noxzema spread?
Oh, that’s me, too. I find people just love to see my face, and, well, gold is my color.
I need to use your bathroom, Aisha. Quickly.
Of course. Down the hall on your left.
Uh, I’m not going to see your face in gold in there, am I?
If I tell you, then it won’t be a surprise!
