Newscasters

Local homeowner comes out last night to find his car on fire...

Owner: "I found a gas can on the car, and a stream of gas and fire leading from the car up to the house."

Reporter: "Police are trying to determine if the fire was a case of arson."

Where do they find these geniuses?

I'm not sure "genius" is in the list of qualifications for a new reporter (although an IQ higher than a box of hammers would be nice for most). I bet his or her hair and teeth were perfect, though!

Kind of reminds me of the reporter doing an article on a couple of cows that escaped and were rounded up. He said thier names were Black and Gus and his partner had a smirk on his face.
