Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Not much, these days. Its heyday was the 1960s, when the Ford Motor Company manufactured a popular car model there.
Really? I didn’t know that!
You’ve never heard of the Maltese Falcon? What the hell do they teach you kids today, anyway?
So, is it famous for anything now apart from papal visits?
Yes. Malta boasts the world’s worst Michael Jackson impersonators. This only became evident recently, when La Toya Jackson visited to promote a hand cream and was confronted at every turn by folks claiming to be impersonating her dead brother.
Cut! Folks, let’s take a lunch break while I talk to the director.
Okay Lamar, what IS it with you? First you screwed up a lavish production of Animal Fair and we had to pull the plug on it, and now this?

Yes, I’m so sorry, you’re right. I’ve let you down, but let me make it up to you.
Okay boys, prepare yourselves for the new smash hit series of the fall TV season. This is the kind of high concept creativity that made network programming what it is today.

Blog Guy, now that this healthcare reform stuff has passed, I guess I have the same question as everybody else.
