Pretend you’re a writer for David Letterman, or Conan, or Jimmy, or the other Jimmy, or … well, you get the idea.
Came across this story in today’s USA Today, and pretty sure you probably read/heard about it too. It seems Michael Jackson had a patent for the leaning dance movie in “Smooth Criminal.” That’s kind of cool and forward-thinking, right?
I would have included more (read: copied more) of the USA Today article, but
- it’s morally wrong to so blatantly plagiarize, even if you say you’ve copied; and,
- they wanted $800 for republish rights, and, since the story is just a (now too long) set-up for a lame joke, it’s not worth it.
Anyway, there … that’s your context. What’s your one-liner/joke?
I’ll get it started with an easy one:
“Well, here’s another secret Michael Jackson won’t be taking to the grave …”
OK … that’s a little lame.Iit’s more of a set up to the joke instead of the punchline.
Anyway, now it’s you’re turn.
