The "Biden won the election" was reworded for some reason, but the exact same intent. And the Brad Pit joke took my "HBO docu-series" punchline and made it a long, winding sentence to get to the same place and beat you over the head with it. As for the 19th, they took one of my earlier joke punchlines ("another broken campaign promised" and recycled on a joke that very closely resembles a submission from 2 weeks ago. The CDC set up was mine, verbatim, and the cow/seaweed joke. The punchlines were totally different though. The CDC went from "how kids away from school too long think 3 feet is twice as far as six" and the cow joke was simply silly, about getting the cows to the beach instead of some weird knock on LA lifestyles. Is seaweed diets a thing in L.A.? Anyway, you'll have to go to the TMI: Hollywood FB page to hear those, as I didn't include them. Then there was the talk radio joke. I used the word "business" first and changed it to "racket" in the actual submission. Then they changed it back to "business" and added the word recently. Why? It's fascinating to see these changes, big and small, happen. All this time and I really don't think we've created a "voice" for Tonya, although once in a while I try to through in something off speed to see what she does with it. But since I'm not in any writing rooms, I'm totally in the dark as to why it occurs.
Anyway, just to remind everyone, TMI: Daily is on the TMI: Hollywood Facebook Page weeknights at 6pm on (Hollywood time). And here's my contributions for last week:
