With scripted cues and talking points etc, they should just do interviews on a check list. Check off the emotions you want to express. The computer will do the writing. Like comments on the report cards in the schools these days.
It wouldn't be hard to do. A few years back, I wrote a script for nominating employees for corporate awards. You had to write one sentence saying what they actually did and one sentence saying why it was important, then check the categories that you wanted it to mention ("teamwork", "proactive", "problem solving"). It randomly selected some sentences with the appropriate corporate-speak and generated the nomination form. I got awards for a couple of my team with it. We talked about using it to nominate me for an award for creating the script, but that would have given away the game.

Otis reminds that honest trustworthy and value oriented squirrels did not write the story, all they did was try to cross the road when one was hit. It was old Norm that posted the photo and story.......are you accusing old Norm of having less integrity than Otis? Otis isn't going to like that.....and old Norm isn't either!

I think Norm, like many, has fallen victim to one of Otis' schemes. Wasn't our beloved Mod saying something just a day ago about not trusting Otis quite so much?

Why prep roads to airport that no one is using? Are they driving planes down the roads? Flight attendants want to add more job skills to their list?

Norm is one of Otis' favorite posters, Norm actually posts fine squirrel shots along with his other fine work. An attack on Norm is an attack on Otis, though I am not so sure it works the other way around!

I see a Big Storm is coming on the East coast? I was looking at the local weather here, and next week we should see some 80F+ temps! If anyone is planning a road trip, come on down, I think Otis is about to declare the end of winter here?

Might be a great time to get away from that Dakota snow and ice?

Regards!

Come on! People don't actually eat lewdfish...do they? I mean, aren't they just a big joke used for posting on forums and making people that have been poisoned regurgitate?

I've always wondered the same thing about Velveeta, Spam, and roast beef or corned beef hash.

From my Jeff Foxworthy daily calendar:
You might be a redneck if squirrels only run across your deck once.

I like the one where you spend hours preparing the lewdfish, bake it on low heat for 6 hours on a cedar plank, then throw it out to scare and nauseate the cats........and eat the board.

Me too! You have your wine snobs, your cheese snobs, and your meat snobs.....we just have good eatin' !!!

I am always lookin' for a good new breakfast food....found one this morning! Not hot at all, but a sort of smoky woody flavor......great stuff!


I have been in my shop working hard and long for two weeks.....so I haven't bought groceries and we are getting down to the "Reserve Stock". The good stuff, you know, for when they tell you the end of the world is near and all you have to eat is what is on hand. That's where I'm at now.....Vienna Sausage, Potted Meat, Velveeta (lots of Velveeta, always...I keep a six month supply at all times) and Ramen Noodles......I'm gonna eat like a king this weekend!

Regards!

You sayin' we don't do well? Hell, I have a pantry full of those Vienna Sausages and Potted Meat...Spam too...Velveeta and Cheese Dip by the case.....what have you got that beats that? Lewdfish that the cats won't even touch? Corned beef hash....delicious and if you look real close you can see the little white chopped up arteries in it for texture.......makes for tasty chewing!

Someone say "wine snob" ... ?!

Well, I am doing my "humanitarian act" tonight by saving a cheap-ish 2014 bottle of Saint-Emilion from the curses of old age ...

My wife loves corned beef hash. I can't stand the thought or sight of it. Every time she threatens to serve it I tell her that it's fine. I'll fry up some nice fresh liver (which I love) to go with it.
That's usually the end of the conversation.
