Hello. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your overworked doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel.
My ghostwriter has been working like crazy lately. We're very behind on many things here at The Daily Bone. She finally has a day off tomorrow to maybe catch up with our Blogville friends. As you probably know, my esteemed associate, fellow reporter, and food critic Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel crossed the Rainbow Bridge last summer, so I've been hosting The Daily Bone all by myself. I'm also maintaining vigilance by myself for our other business, The Double Doggie Homeland Security System. It seems both ghostwriter and I could use a little extra help. So I put an ad in the local paper. Today I have an interview with my first applicant.
His name is Bones Daily. Well, that seems appropriate for our publication.
He doesn't seem very lively …
|Greetings! I'm Bones Daily! Pleased to meet you!|
Hello Mr. Daily. I understand you're looking for a job in the broadcasting and security industry.
|Yes. I'm quite good at being scary.|
Do you have any recent experience?
|Yes. I hung around in front of your house on Halloween.|
Well, that explains why we have so much candy left.
But I'm also looking for a food critic. Hey, do you have any yum yum doggie treats in your hand?
|Nope. I'm afraid I'm just bare bones in that department!|
What about humor? We always like to add a little humor to The Daily Bone.
|Skeleton jokes? I've got a million of them!|
|Well, what do you say? Do I get the job?|
Well, I have to admit, he is quite humerus! A lot of businesses are working with bare bones staffing these days. And if it doesn't work out, I can always use a fresh daily doggie bone.
