Ok. Nellie Vaughn was inquiring about the actor that PLAYS Ron Burgundy. What is she talking about? Ron Burgundy is a real person isn't he?? Umm..hmmm. Let's learn a little bit more. I decided to do a little research into this matter...and like most people in modern Western civilization, I do research by looking at pictures on the internets with a burrito in one hand, and a diet Dr. Pepper in the other. (Yes, I said a "burrito" and I meant a "burrito"; so get your mind out of the gutter!)
Alright. So, what did my research uncover? Ron Burgundy is in fact NOT a real news anchor, he is played by an actor...possibly comedian Zach Galifianakis...
But honestly, who cares about any of this. Let's get down to brass tacks, and the true crux of the matter Nellie Vaughn brought up is WHY DO WE LAUGH?? WHAT MAKES SOMETHING FUNNY??
I have no friggin' idea. She might as well have asked Chewbacca this question...

But what kind of investigative reporter would I be if I gave up that easily. NO we do not give up quite just like that. We GO ON..we PRESS FURTHER.. !
So, I decided to use a method of investigation invented by Mark of http://theramblingperson.blogspot.com . In this method of investigation, you ask your readers for questions and then answer them, if you can. Then I thought... how is this going to help? I can't even answer the one question I have already been asked. "Oh yeah!" I thought.
What I really need to do is ask someone else today's question (now, I'm paraphrasing, mind you), "WHAT MAKES SOMETHING FUNNY???" So, I decided (when I get around to it) I will attempt to write Adventure Daniel of the Picklejar Broadcasting System about Nellie Vaughn's question.

And now for some entertaining umm...entertainment news. A new movie directed by comedy expert Seth MacFarlane will be coming out this summer, it is called "TED", and it looks adorable doesn't it? (The craziest thing in this trailer is TED drives the exact same car that I do. How come I don't get to hang out with Mila Kunis all day!!!!!?????) Check out the trailer below:
As you know dear friends, I am capable of being very thoughtful, and very serious when it comes to discussing the important issues of our time. So now let us venture into the world of REAL news, and discuss the Occupy Movement...what it is, what it stands for, and where it's going...with one of the most articulate supporters of the movement, award winning journalist Chris Hedges.
"...our greatest strength is transparency, honesty, and a rigid adherence to non-violence; and respect even for those pillars of authority that do not respect us."

Once again, God bless you all, and thank you for your support.
