Michael Brown’s new year’s resolutions

Filed under: Humor — by Christian Beckner on January 3, 2006

From Andy Borowitz at Newsweek, a piece on Michael Brown’s new year’s resolutions. A sample paragraph:

Despite his delay in making his resolutions, Brown said he expects 2006 to be a big year for him and his new disaster preparedness consulting firm, adding, “By the end of 2006, the name Michael Brown will be synonymous with disaster.”

Is this how this guy makes his living? Coming up with articles that take 10 seconds to figure out they’re not serious and then 20 seconds to read? How much time was spent on the Brownie article? I wish I got paid the big bucks for something like this.

Hello, john! Why did it take you even 10 seconds to figure out Borowitz was not serious? The article is labelled “Humor: Former FEMA Chief Runs Late. Again.” The word “humor” should have been your first clue. But it doesn’t sound like you actually know what that word even means. Borowitz is actually pretty funny and makes fun of everyone equally. Read his article, “Humor: Sadaam Calls U.S. ‘Amateur Torturers'” for something that slams the Iraqi leader. Perhaps that matches up a little better with your particular political bent.
