I had to watch Son of the Mask on a plane once.
always go about 3 times as long as they need to?
they have the long articles and the short articles but nothing in between.
i mean, the joke was summed up in the first two paragraphs. i know thats how newspaper journalism works anyway, but as a piece of comedy writing, it hardly sustains the laughs throughout. you smirk at the concept, have a wry smile at some of the details, but what the fuck are yo usupposed to read the rest of it for?
i have no idea.
being forced to use a style that is supposed to be used for a different type of writing. I hardly ever read to the end, most of the time the headline is enough. I'm impressed they've manage to come up with so many stories though, surely they should be running out of ideas?
and with bush in power theyll always have a source.
and its become such an institution that it can pretty much just go on its own steam foreverandever, like the simpsons
helps them to come up with new ideas, same with the simpsons. It means they can take fragments of ideas they've already used i suppose, but it's still impressive.
