True Life Conversations With McMurphy

At the Stein-Mart on White Bridge Road…

(Enters McMurphy)

Odd Booth Man:. Sir…oh, sir! Would you like to enter a contest to win a $500 gift certificate here?

McMurphy: Ugh, would do I have to give you?

Odd Booth Man:. Just a first name and a phone number on the back of this ticket.

McMurphy: Alright.

As I’m writing….

Odd Booth Man: How often do you read The Tennessean?

McMurphy:. Is that what this is? Never.

Tennessean Peddler: What would it take for you to start reading it?

McMurphy: Hrm…you really want to know?

Tennessean Peddler: Yes.

McMurphy: Unbiased local news reporting. Editorials that come closer to reflecting my opinions and the majority of people in this state. Is that too much to ask for?

Tennessean Flack: Probably.

McMurphy: Well, that’s why you’re laying off thousands of people.

Walks off.
