Fox news finally recognized my (not really) divinity and swung by to ask for pearls of wisdom. Finally, some recognition!
Actually it was just man-on-the-street interviews about the controversial new Twitter feed on Conde Naste elevator conversations. You'd think with the current ongoing stock market cataclysms, the 3 dozen killed in the chopper shoot down and the sub orbital counterstrike of so-called "rods of god" (more on this blasphemy in a later post; but spoiler alert- I DID NOT KILL ANYONE WITH MY ROD) and the unfolding saga of the Norwegian killer would be more than enough fodder for their broadcast, wouldn't you? But no, a cheesy twitter gimmick on par with 'people of walmart' seems equally newsworthy this of all weeks. I guess in the age of Jersey Shore and Real Housewives we can't expect better anymore. Oy
If you're not up on this non-story, somebody opened a Twitter feed of transcriptions of conversation fragments overhead on the elevators of magazine mega-publisher Conde Nast. Priceless nuggets like "If she didn't want to know if she looked fat in that dress, why'd she ask me dude? I wouldn't ask if I didn't want to know!" So apparently they went for the dumb and offensive as entertainment.
Anyway, they asked what I thought about it so I told them "I think that you hear a lot of stupid people saying a lot of stupid things. But it's entertaining." Which if you think about it, is actually what Fox News is all about in the first place. So I guess this is the perfect story for them.
-LATE BREAKING NEWS
that feed is now silent. Somebody's trying to save their job.
