Yesterday, I had a a bit of fun on my Twitter account corresponding with a local radio station. To give you guys to speed, the local station on the top of the hour always reports a bit of the daily news. For chuckles since it is the Internet, I made some interesting “headline” news in 140 characters.
Rather dictating each one I had for the day, I think I will post a few here I considered but turned down. To follow a format, I had to keep it under 140 characters, quoted and with “more at [number between 1-12 depending on the time of day].” So here it is, for the laughs:
“Local man shoots self in foot, finds gold. More at 5.”
“Physicist says sky is not blue, but periwinkle. More at 4.”
“Woman sees for the first time. Saw seashells by the seashore. More at 9.”
“Martians come to Earth, returns with Curiosity. More at 1.”
“What you’re kids are doing right now that should worry you because we tell you. More at 2.”
“FDA approves sword swallowing as source of iron. More at 7.”
“Gun laws now require license for you to sat ‘pew pew’ in public. More at 8.”
“Microsoft is now a religion. Apple users declare holy war. More at 2.”
“World leaders elect ‘Supreme Master Leader of the World’, Joe from Arkansas. More at 1.”
“Ambassador of Nigerian prince approaches UN for aid. More at 2.”
“Facebook’s hired monkeys unionize, goes bananas. More at 3.”
“NSA to release what you did last summer. More at 6.”
“UN decides to separate world citizens into 12 sections to fight to the death. More at 6.”
“Scientists discover dihydrogen monoxide is extremely unhealthy. More at 10.”
“People like grapes. Census agrees. More at 11.”
I am surprised I haven’t found a job just to write this stuff. I am not much of a prankster, a witty jokester perhaps. Anyways Easter is coming and and I know a few people are taking some time off while I’ll be here doing what I’ve been trying to do for a long time.
Until next time readers, Happy Easter.
