There’s Good News Tonight

An AP news story tells us that “the FBI and Homeland Security Department say there is no information indicating plans for more shooting sprees at movie theaters around the country.” When I read this, I immediately recalled the “Monty Python” sketch, in which a TV newscaster does a segment titled “News for Parrots.” His report informs us that “No parrots were involved in an accident on the M-1 today, when a lorry carrying high-octane fuel was in collision with a bollard. That’s a BOLLARD and NOT a PARROT. A spokesman for parrots said he was glad no parrots were involved.”
