My first genuine attempt at satire, if anybody can read all the way through and let me know what they think then that would be great.
(This is in the extreme makeover section, by the way).
I don't know whether you would call that satire, but it was supposed to be funny...
Pretty funny, better than anything I could come up with, and longer that's for sure. No wonder its taken someone 20 minutes to respond, haha.
I gotta say that was a welcome read in my bad mood! Thanks for that, left you a comment
Oh, Ryan... I thought it was fantastic! HA! I do think you should have an Amazon capsule for Morgan Spurlock's "Supersize Me" though. Very well done.
Cheers guys, been a long time since I published a light hearted hub with pure enjoyment the objective.
I will have to do it again some time, it felt good and a welcome break from sales copy
I didn't really understand the end of your comment though Kirsten, I may be a half decent writer but plenty manages to fly over my head when reading
She means that if you had been reading a book while doing your undercover work you would've stuck out like sore thumb
This gave me a smle as I reminisced (spelling???) about a long drive from LA to Las Vegas and we had to stop at a McD's in the middle of nowhere - it was not somewhere I would've chosen to be but it was that or die in the desert from dehydration - still it was a pretty tough call to make.
The folks you described reminded me of a Bill Hicks bit. He is in a small town restrant and the waitress askes him 'whatca readin for?'. His shock was being in asked what for? not what? but what for?
So I don't wind up a waitress on minimum wage in some hick town was his reply!
I love Bill Hicks
Who you callin' fat, ya dang Brit?
Loved it Ryan!!! But there is one thing you might want to consider changing. You talk several times about the Ronald McDonald House with sinister clowns and kids running around, and I'm not sure that you understand just what a Ronald McDonald House is. It's certainly not a "fun" thing and has no clowns--sinister or otherwise. I do have a hub written about it if you want more info. It's actually a pretty serious and somber place.
Oh I know that a Ronald McDonald house is, and I know that this is close to the wire, but I left it in on the basis that McDonalds customers pay for those rather than McDonalds the corporation - we have the Ronald McDonald houses too. I guess that I just hope people will see it as tongue in cheek, I was trying to be a little ironic I guess - factitious stupid people being reported by an incredibly stupid journalist. Me playing the stupid Journalist
I am sure that the Ronald McDonald houses are fantastic places, and that Ronald McDonald has his own house which has all been bought and paid for by his dividends I wouldn't mind chillin in his pool with those groupies though, do ya think they use waterproof face paint?
I thought it was just as you wanted it to be, humorous satire and provided a few chuckles. Nice job.

Ok, here goes. I rarely get involved in the forums, I guess I am a little on the shy side. I have been here almost 2 years now and have published over 80 hubs. I have only had 2 ever unfeatured and have...
