‘Morning guys, anyone got any article ideas?’
The downtrodden and depressed writers and actors of last week’s Law Revue have sheepishly snuck their way back into The Obiter’s offices at Herston this morning.
‘Did we miss much?’ Lachlan Glaves muttered, his eyes darting towards the floor as staff looked up in fury from their bullpens.
‘Sorry team, got a little caught up with the show hey,’ Henry Bretz said while making a cup of English Breakfast in the kitchen, prompting Drew Pavlov to lob a dim sim at his head.
Michael Fielding, the man credited by shareholders with guiding the publication through this dark time, was seen admonishing Jack Hardy over the phone, after learning he was headed to Dublin to join Editor Joe Dwyer on his ‘research conference.’
Samantha Haran uncomfortably offered the returning writers a tissue as they wept uncontrollably at their desks at the concept of writing something that didn’t require a costume team of four to make happen.
Inside reports they barely had the energy to pitch a half-hearted article about being hungover in a Monday lecture, or bumping into your ex-girlfriend at Ric’s, or ‘something.’
The dejected, inconsolable thespians were seen reciting their favourite sketch lines to each other next to the printer at press time.
No more to come.
