New Short available - Building Better Paragraphs!
« on: July 02, 2010, 12:03:19 PM »

The bartender says "I was talking to the duck!"  And, so it was finished, before it had even begun.  She was a dark and stormy dame.  Really, that's a badger?  "Over there, behind the fake tree," she said.  The record scratched at midnight, as it always does.  That, ladies and gentlemen, is a terrible paragraph.  If only it were possible to build a better one!  But surely, a topic as pedantic and uninteresting as Building Better Paragraphs has never been covered by the dynamos at Coronet Films, has it? It has!  Fans of crappy paragraphs, run and hide because Building Better Paragraphs is here to pummel your putrid paragraphs into submission!  Building Better Paragraphs tells the tale of Susan, whose dog Major wins a prize at a dog show.  Actually, it tells the tale of three children telling the tale of Susan & Major.  While the rest of the class presumably learns important life skills such as the capital of Delaware, these three toil away at the back table, shaping their initial failure of a paragraph into something vaguely coherent.   Can they build it into a better paragraph?  Let's hope so, the bar was set awfully low.  Can they shape it into an interesting paragraph?  We're going to be honest, we have our doubts.  Is one of the children in this short one of the strangest looking kids we've ever seen?  We answer that with a hearty "Gahhhh!" Mike, Kevin and Bill have each built a better paragraph only to later find out the assigned topic was The Teapot Dome Scandal, not bacon.

Any issues with the RiffTrax main page should be directed to support@rifftrax.com Attempts to engage with me directly about such matters will result in ridicule.

I put this short on last night as I was going to bed, was it just me that thought the Riffs were hard to hear?

I have to check it out tonight when I go home might be because I had my Air Conditioner on and i was drifting off to sleep.
