Drawers

I don't know what's going on up in Alaska but I wonder whether lleechef knows about this AP headline:

Underwear Is Coming to Palmer, Alaska, for the First Time in a Decade

    AP headline writers...barely on the fringe of the journalism world ! Especially with a Palmer, Alaska event like that and not use the screaming, 48-point bold masthead:

    PANTIES IN PALMER PROMISE PIPING PRIVATES

    As a longtime AP staffer, and never on the fringe of the journalism world, I must point out that The Associated Press does not get to do actual headlines. The 48-point bold would have to come from the copy desk of the newspaper.

    Sorry, MH -- or should I use your professional moniker (AP)? No offense intended. Just an attempt to be jocular on this Friday the 13th. (BTW, this entire apology is all off the record.)

    He was a former AP staffer. I felt sorry for him already.

    Hey, I didn't take offense. I, too, was being jocular. Although as a AP staffer I always believed we were in the mainstream of journalism.

    Oh, and if you want it off the record you have to say so beforehand. So, everything you've said will be used against you. Count on it!

    You have no idea. You see, I'm not just a reporter, I'm a columnist. We're tough.

    What? Underwear in Palmer? Why? You only qualify if you have all your teeth and don't have a lisp. So that rules out everyone that lives in Palmer. " />" />" />

    Excerpts from the article: "The men in Palmer have not been able to buy underwear in town since the mid-1980s."
    "The supermarket (selling the underwear) also will have a sushi bar.."

    Woah! Underwear AND sushi in Palmer?! In the same place? Do you have to eat the sushi in your underwear? And what about the guys that haven't been able to buy underwear since the 1980s.......can they eat sushi too?

    Today's weather forecast on the front page: Partly slushy. Seriously. I give up. It's Alaska.

    I'm just hoping that the person making the sushi is wearing underwear...
