"spread-eagled"? ROTFLMAO!

This is classic, Iowa. You must be from here if you know the subway as well as you do. (Yes folks, the 1 train goes through Penn Station)

I think this blog is great.

Uhmmmm... something weird...

My post shows up under "kiwinews" and doesn't show up under my name.

Is your blogware auto-plagerizing?

""This is New York, so we see celebrities all the time," said Robertson. "Then I realized he was heading downtown on the uptown tracks.""

TOOOO DAMN FUNNY!

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Mark

Thanks for the laugh from a frustrating story. Great job!

Strider

You forgot the bit when he was going through the turnstile into the subway, and he hit the turnstile bar and swung around and around it at high speed before launching headlong down the stairs.

Other than that minor omission: Perfect!

That's what I love about living in NYC: seeing movies being filmed right in my neighborhood, not to mention the celebrity sightings . . . .

Lowell Brown

I just discovered you. Hilarious, wonderful stuff! I linked to you on my blog (http://hedgehogcentral.blogspot.com/), urged all my readers to do the same, and bookmarked you!

Thanks for the great witty stuff.

Tim Faust

Thanks for the incredable laugh. My stomach hurts. And yes, I AM still wearing my pajamas...

Wonderful. And the Alan Sokol [sic???] reference was just, just . . . superb.

But did you change this? I first saw this posted on LGF. In the version Charles posted, "Sokol" was spelled "Sokal", which is the real spelling of physicist Alan Sokal's name. Are you trying to pull a fast one on us??? Or does Charles' magic correcto-computer (which can use MS-Word to make a perfect copy of a memo typed over 30 years ago) also fix names of physicists when he posts something?

I can imagine a couple of conversations taking place during the docu-drama;

1.Between Burkett and Mapes, Mapes says;"now let's see you tried this when Bush was the Gov. and it didn't fly because you had no documents. Well, it won't fly now until you come up with the documents. Burkett says; "Okay".

2. Between Mapes and Dan, Mapes says; "hey boss, I finally got the documents you wanted" Dan Says;
"are they for real?" Mapes replies, "So what, even if those pajama clad bloggers prove they are fakes, you can always tell your listeners that CBS fabricated the truth."

"This just in... Dan Rather, world-famous news anchor, suffered another accident after being released from hospital.

"This news footage shows Rather near the Washington Monument, and the events which followed.

"Around 11:10 AM, Rather was seen reading the blueprint for a plan marked 'PLAN A', drawn in white chalk. The plan, caught on camera, read as follows:

"'1. President jogs by. 2. Blow up base of Washington Needle with TNT. 3. Needle tips over. 4. Heh-heh!'

"Snickering to himself, Rather diverted police personnel by claiming he was doing a publicity stunt for '60 Minutes' -- and proceeded to the monument, carrying a box labeled 'ACME TNT'.

"At 11:50 hours, Rather placed the bundle of dynamite at the base of the needle, facing away from the path. Scanning the surroundings in a pair of Acme binoculars, Rather spotted the President approaching, jogging along the path in a tracksuit.

"At precisely 11:55 AM, Rather pressed the detonator switch and the dynamite went off. The blast echoed across the entire area. The President, who was wearing a set of thick Walkman headphones, did not notice the blast. He jogged past the monument, which stood in place.

"Enraged, Rather ran up to the base of the monument, and kicked it repeatedly. Muttering to himself, he started to walk away... when suddenly, with a sound similar to a falling tree, the monument started to tip over in Rather's direction.

"He noticed the shadow and started to run, but too late. We are still waiting for the rescue crew to free Rather, whose feet can now be seen sticking out from underneath the fallen obelisque.

"CBS is now investigating how the White House, which was situated suspiciously close to the scene, was involved in the accident."

Still waiting for the movie... ;-P

Only thing missing was a falling anvil. Oh, and the piano on the head, followed by the Beethoven statue...

The Road Runner debuted on this day in 1949!

I second that beepbeep!

CBS is brilliant. Who would have thought that they could successfully morph their premier news program into something that can effectively compete with Fox?

There is no way the X-Files can compete with this.

A.R.Yngve

Hilarious! :)

I'm waiting for someone to actually produce an edited Roadrunner cartoon with Dan Rather superimposed on Wile E. Coyote.

Beep Beep!

How appropriate that I'm reading this on Roadrunner. Even if he had not made a Rather-shaped hole in the wall while wearing Acme rocket skates, as Mr. Van Os said, "What difference would it make?"

RichInOC

Bravo, Hawk. There's only one thing left to say:

Beepbeep.

Everyone knows Coyote held up a little umbrella and a sign that said 'yipe' (no arbitrary 's' included). Seriously, one could do more research before simply posting a story.

There's a typo: it's not 'heir-apparent John Roberts'. It's 'hair-apparent'. Laura Ingraham told me.

I can't believe you misreported the events of this afternoon in such a shoddy and unblogsmanlike manner.

The little sign he held up said "Yikes!," not "Yipes!"

And you left out what font it was in (Bookman, oddly enough).
