When the story first came across my digital desk, I knew it was satire yet it registered as real. I’d heard something on the news, briefly in passing by a TV, about cops bringing some kid food, but cops have been shooting people for all KINDS of reasons these days. I get it, it’s a tough job, I wouldn’t do any better, but they’ve done this before.
Eventually, I catch on to the joke Chris has made and laugh.
But not before I thought “What if it said, ‘Then Brutally Beat Child For Reaching Into His HOT Pockets’?” I envisioned Gaffigan grinning as the children bled their own blood.
- Miss the joke.
- Think I can improve it.
- Meta blog about it.
That’s what this is. (Was.)
