Share

In episode 63 of the Constant Crisis News & Opinion self-help and humor podcast, Ham & Chuck bring you an update to a breaking news story that is occurring in real time, as we speak, and which we have been following for some time now but we are now bringing you updated information on, and that is: the increasing practice of news anchors of injecting urgency into news reporting with a set of proven phrases.

We also bring you, in breathless, news anchor-style, the story of two wealth Manhattan wealthy people (that’s what we think they do for a living) who are throwing a fit… er… filing a lawsuit because their son has to hold the door at school occasionally… er… we mean, because they say they were conned into paying $50,000 for a finger painting they only intended to pay $6000 for. And, in related story, a fool and his head are soon separated, then reattached to someone else’s head and/or body.
