Cat fight in TV Studio

I was tuning in to the TV earlier today and came across a sensational story about a US TV company that descended into farce. NTBC1 in St Louis Missouri were running a piece about the high cost of imported clothing compared to the poor wages that the assemblers make, when the reporter, Bannamae Brown, she that brought us the real story of Free Willy several year ago, noticed that Anchorwoman Nova Taylor was wearing an African print kaftan similar to that imported by Mazerowski enterprises of St Louis. Mazerowski was himself in the studio at the time having come in to defend the low wages that are paid to the mostly children who manufacture these garments. Brown and Mazerowski almost came to blows at one point as Taylor fought to remain her composure and keep the show going whilst throwing ice from a huge mug of soda in an attempt to make the other two slip over and out of camera shot. Much of the ice went down her front in fact and we were entertained to shrieks of "Don't you dare go hunting for that ice" as Mazeowski pawed her in a most inappropriate manner. Brown was shouting that he was nothing more than a child exploiter and that he was exactly the sort of person the new US President Obama was elected to shake into shape. Fat cat Mazeowski, said that he was doing the American people a huge favour by importing these garments so cheaply. Some sell for as little as $1.50 and there is a special range being produced for dollar stores at, you guessed it, $1 per garment. A smart young security guard, a very cool cat in a grey uniform, eventually restored some order by lying across Ms Taylor's lap to keep the two pugilists away from her. Taylor has found a small laser pointer and was beaming light onto the wall in an attempt to distract both Mazerowski and Brown but it was the younger guard that seemed most amused by this and was trying to "catch" the light. However, by now both Maerowski and Brown had by now both slipped on the vast amount of ice that Taylor seemed to have managed to throw and were lying like drunks outside a late night bar. The station has been taken off the air for the rest of today. This sounds like a right on TV station. Should NTBC1 be carried by all the main cable and satellite companies?

I'd arrange a secure feed to my house only, charge the neighbours a piece of $1.00 clothing and a farthing to come in and watch! Why haven't I heard about this station before huh? We have satellite here the Twilight Zone. We should be able to pick it up! So yeah, definitely, keep it on the air. This could be just the right solution to energizing my old geezers during the long winter months and keep them out of Vegas! ROFL All hail Nova Taylor and her cleavage!!!!!!!!!

That's hilarious! I would love to see that. Last night I was watching the news and you might know that "live" reporting is all the rage right now here in the states. Poor Regina was standing out in the freezing cold in order to report "live" the traffic on the highway. Someone out of camera range told her "go" and she said "what?"--"GO!" "I'm on? It's time?" "JUST GO!!!" all this in near-whispers. It was very funny.

Hey, do you know where I might see this? You know it has to be on the internet somewhere.I find that everything is on the internet. I would like to see what all happened. I think it is so hypocritical when you see people tell you to donate or help or fight for these poor people or this poor country help the children. And, all the while the one that is telling you to help are usually the one's hurting these people. Like I get a kick out of when you see sally fields telling you to help the starving children and then you just read in a magazine somewhere that she had 200 people over for a cocktail party to celebrate the fact that she got a new hot tube or something. I hate when they do things like that and if you ever see that old man talk about helping kids. If you look close that is the same boy as when I was a kid the child never ages or they just don't up date their show. I don't know I would think they would show new kids now and then. Anyways, I will get down from my shoebox someone might need the wood with this weather... ** Peace and Love get's you through everything in Life **

It would have been outrageous behaviour if it had happened. But it's a story. Sorry. I do this sometimes when the Lot appears to be becoming "heavy".

This is not real of course P1. It seems hilarious and unacceptable in front of people's dining tables. Lol...But $ 1 per garment is pretty cheap, where can I buy them in this part of the world..lol...cheers and happy blogging.

LOL. You are quite right Jen. I wonder how many others will pick up on that fact. Clothes here are quite cheap and when I was in Singapore we bought a bundle of clothes for our daughter for $10! They haven't all fallen apart yet either.

Sounds more like Australian parliament than American telly! Bananamae? I'm loving that. Right now, it'd be great if someone would throw ice on the floor here ... I'd be happy to wallow around in it, as we've had heat wave conditions for a week and are in for another few days at least. As for them taking it off the air - that would be a good thing for Aus parliament, too. I've never seen such a childish display of histrionics and catfighting in my life!

Bannanamae exists. I have seen her. She's quite a large but friendly cat belonging to a fellow myLotter who goes by the name of Novataylor. As is Mazerowski and a male grey cat called Nova. Yep, it was all a moment's madness in that area of my cranium headed "imagination".

And there was I, imagining Bananamae to be a Whoopi Goldbergesque type with a great line in interviewing ... Shucks. (Not.)

She could be; might be in a future story.

Everything goes on a tv show nowadays. The saddest part is, it greatly influence especially our youth today. I hope, only good things will be shown on tv. But it is impossible of course. Because we have different basis of what is good and what is bad.

Hey p1ke! Wow! I would love to see that piece! I hope they show that one on the Net! I will definitely be looking for it! Sounds like a skit from some comedy show! How pathetic, yet hilarious! Grownups acting like azzholes is always funny! I don't think the guy who is abusing the children and making them work for nothing is funny though! I think that he should be arrested or worse! But, the rest of it sounds like something we would all enjoy watching! Is this a show that you watch often or did you just happen upon it today and get lucky?

Damn! I have no chance of witnessing such Springer-esque frivolities from here in Cairo. The areas that are very important for me to know though pike..... Was Nova Taylor wearing a white top when the ice went down it? And why the hell didn't the laser pointer on the wall trick work you think? I have always been a fan of the laser pointer on the wall diversionary tactic and I am actually quite confident that if nations were able to manufacture a massive laser pointer, they could distract entire armies and stop war in its tracks. Anyways, good on Mazeowski for being so conscientious towards the American people. He should throw a few dollar kaftans the way of the young security guard. He certainly sounds deserving of them!

When I spoke to her, which I did at 3pm (UK) today she was wearing the African print top which was dry. Her cats, Bannanamae, Mazerowski and Nova, the grey cat, were all happily sleeping. LOL.

If this is in fact true, it's hilarious. I live in Missouri and I can just see this happening. I think they should be given their own time slot to do this daily. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG AND TRUST IN GOD**[/b]

Very good farce, p1ke. I loved it. Thanks. I perked up right away when I read Nova's name and knew it to be one of your homemade farces. But very entertaining, just the same. Write another, will ya? We all need cheering up. Keep em comin', love. XXXX

It is indeed. But few have realised that. I must tell Nova to get more active. I suspect that some don't know who she is! XXXX
