Blooper Reel — Evening News


It’s a veritable laff riot when talking heads wax jocose with their colleagues while the camera rolls.

Rachel, female reporter ending her remote footage: “Back to you, Tucker. I’m gonna stay here and have fun with Curly, my new buddy.” [She pets Curly, a dog, and cuddles him. Curly beams and wags. Rachel’s story was about rescued animals.]

Tucker, anchor man: “Maybe you two should get a room.” [Glances off camera grinning.] That’s probably the most action you’ve gotten in a month! [Pauses expectantly, eyes drifting to his view of Rachel. Two seconds of dead air…] Well, I crack myself up, if no one else. [Fade-out.]

About JMN

I live in Texas and devote much of my time to easel painting on an amateur basis. I stream a lot of music, mostly jazz, throughout the day. I like to read and memorize poetry.
