Philadelphia, PA—“Times are tough,” admitted the Discord’s Chief Executive, Pierce Winslow.
The Daily Discord tallied its’ eighth straight monthly loss in March. Complaints during this week’s staff meeting ranged from, “I gave up my job at the Circle-K for this?” to “I gave my job up at the 7-11 for this?” The staff had a laundry list of complaints for Mr. Winslow this week.
“Morale is something nearing Abu Ghraib levels,” stated Winslow, “Er, the inmates, not the military.”
“We got very little of the bailout funds,” complained Bald Tony.
“Yeah,” agreed Pokey McDooris, “just like good ol’ AIG, I’d gladly give back my bonus, but it was two pens that turned out to be pencils.”
Mr. Winslow feels his staff is just a pack of overly pessimistic whiners.
“Besides,” said Winslow, “even before the recession seven out of ten Discord staffers lived with their parents.”
