30 Seconds to...Disaster!
By Mike Stevens
“Before we get to tonight’s story, just a word about ‘Tongue-Blaster Fruit-Like Candies’, ‘Good!’ Now, on with tonight story, ‘30 Seconds to Disaster’:
30 seconds to air; look at this guy; were do they find these losers? Paul Yardbird thought to himself. Paul had been employed by Minor Major Studios as a cameraman for the past 8 years, and he’d seen an ever-worsening crop of pathetic announcers stagger in, do one show, and stagger away, never to be seen again, thank goodness! The latest knob-job to try his hand, or more accurately, voice, was some guy named Bake Johnson. His is a vision of a show all about scavenger hunting; wow, viewer magnate! The dude who was in charge of this network, huh? How long did he have to go to college to be this visionary? Man! Oh well, he wasn’t paid to make decisions; he was just paid to film this crap!
“Stand by; ten, nine...one, you’re on!”
Ten, nine...one, disaster!
