Opinion: Hey, Does This Joke Work?

Okay, I’m gonna be honest with you, this is my first article.  I’m kind of new here at The Third Spur, and I don’t wanna let the other guys down with a bad article.  I mean, I’m usually okay at writing and get good grades on papers and stuff, but it’s just that normally millions of other people don’t see that stuff.  Umm okay, here.

But I don’t know, you guys are probably busy working on other more important stuff than this article… I bet you’re busy writing an article about um- campus or something, but I… I wanted to ask you guys if you could maybe just take a look at my idea. So basically, it’s like, umm…

Oh I don’t know; its a bad idea anyway. Sorry.


Okay, fine, I’ll tell you guys my idea.

So, umm, you know how, like umm… USC students are always mad about like, something, they’re mad about things, but they never actually like d-do anything about it? Yeah, that.  I was thinking an article like that… I’m pretty sure it would be funny… right?

And then it could have like, quotes and umm, other things like that. Maybe a, like a funny picture or something that really uh- ties the whole thing together or something, and probably some other jokes in there. I don’t know what I’m gonna do for all of those yet though. I’m still working on it. I don’t really have the whole idea right now.

Sorry, that’s a bad idea, isn’t it. Is it? I don’t know. It’s so hard to really express it in writing.

Actually, never mind. Sorry. It seemed like a bad article idea anyway. Sorry to bother you with that.
