Headlines Du Jour ► Tuesday, December 24, 2013

When the Not Now Silly interns began agitating for Christmas off, I decided to grant their request. I fired the whole lot of them. However, I ain’t going out into the innertubes and getting my hands dirty. That’s why I have purchased the very latest technology in headline collection, specially designed drone robots. Today’s Headlines Du Jour are the very first to be picked by the new bots. Not only do they work cheap, but they won’t demand time off.
