Philadelphia, PA – CEO of the Daily Discord, Pierce Winslow, is furious with his editing staff.
“Exxon/Mobile? Really, people? Mobile? That was a headline!” yelled Winslow. “I am not responsible for the editing, censoring, and content butchery that you, our faithful readers, have come to expect from this less than stellar e-zine.”
Winslow’s plan to correct the ongoing proofing fiasco is to outsource the Discord’s editing needs overseas.
“Each article and cartoon is now going to be sent to an editing group from India, where they will undergo an intensive editing process before the material is returned to Philadelphia via carrier pigeon.”
When asked about keeping jobs in America, Winslow said, “Look, I tried using my contributors. They lose shit and, frankly, they’re incompetent. They have no artistic ability, no Photoshop skills, and English is almost a second language to them…and not because they know another language!”
The Daily Discord’s CEO intends to ramp up his War-on-Error and put an end to all radical exciseism by contracting out with the MOFLE Group—a band of Mercenary Overseas Free Lance Editors (MOFLEs).
“Besides, they’ll help me get rid of these lousy acronym jokes once and for all,” added Winslow. “The regular contributors are next,” warned Winslow. “It’s all part of the third stage in my India outsourcing plan. Don’t worry. I think you will all enjoy catching up on the latest Bollywood gossip. Did you hear Aishwarya Rai is pregnant with Apu of the Simpsons’ love child? Well, of course you didn’t, but that all ends today…that is, when the pigeon gets here.”
