Call and Response with CNN

17 Jan

Sometimes CNN becomes confused and starts asking questions it should – as a massive journalistic organization – be able to answer. On those occasions, I step in with some assistance.

Should you look for work in China?Uh oh, why? Have you been talking to my boss? What have you heard?

Can Boehner's GOP deliver?Yes, and I believe their guarantee is that the pizza will arrive within forty minutes, or it’s tax free – I just hope they get those mobile Interac machines, my credit card is maxed.

Too much hustle in the NBA?I’m no sports fan, but I know that, on those few occasions when I do end up catching a game, all I keep thinking is: “Man, I wish this could be slower somehow. Can we get everyone wearing inappropriately heavy clothing, and maybe some ankle weights?”

While I’m at it, I should add that I’m also a little concerned about all that putting of the ball through the hoop.

Is it safe to fly with a two-week-old?This is obviously a trick question: has the two-week-old completed his or her 40 hours of instructed flight time to obtain their solo license?

    As always, one of my favorite features.
    You hit on one of my pet peeves- the length of basketball games. When a typical game ends 1t 108-102, was it really necessary to play 4 quarters? You could get a winner when it’s 30-26 and everyone could go out for an early dinner.

      Seconded, for what it’s worth. If they cut most of the games to about half their current length it would bring in a lot more viewers, but, of course, change is usually the bane of any “true fan”.

      Red Bull gives 2-week olds wings.
      And probably sever kidney and liver damage.

    […] is actually an item I was half-considering for yesterday’s CNN responses, but there was no comedy in it. It may not be humorous, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t […]
