This post is Part 2 of a writing series titled Channel 57 News with Matt Welcomb and Art Gallery.

"Good evening," I said. "This is Channel 57 News, bringing you all the latest breaking news from East Westburg - the town whose name proves that our founding fathers weren't the brightest bulbs in the box. I'm Matt Welcomb..."

Art glared at me.

"What?" I said.

"You ALWAYS say that. It's the dumbest joke in the whole universe and you ALWAYS say it."

"Nuh uh," I said.


"When have you NOT said, it then?"

"I didn't say Nuh uh I don't always say it, I said Nuh uh, it's not the dumbest joke in the world."

"Universe, not world, dummy." Art said.

"The world is IN the universe, dummy."


"You're the dummy."

"Nuh uh. Your mamma's the dummy."

"Don't call my mom a dummy."

"Your mamma is such a dummy she made the dumbest joke in the whole universe."

"Nuh uh."

"Uh huh. She made YOU."

"Are you calling me dumb?"

"No, dummy, I'm calling you a dumb joke."

"I know you are, but what am I?"

"You're so dumb you think IQ stands for Inferiority Quomplex"

"Complex isn't spelled with a Q, stupid."

I grinned. "Exactly my point, moron."

Suddenly Bob's voice interrupted us. "Boys," he said from off camera, "We really need to get out the word about the alien invasion - would you mind saving your argument for your OWN time?"

Art turned to face the camera. "And I'm Art Gallery. Tonight on the Channel 57 News, we regret to inform you that aliens have taken over Trenton, New Jersey."

"You're the alien," I muttered under my breath.

"Oh yeah?" he muttered back at me. "You're Trenton, New Jersey."

very childish! (I mean that as a compliment, of course, since that was the point of the writing prompt!)

I think you meant to say that the world was in the universe.

Also, if you want, on your writing page, you can create a "serial writing" topic, so you can link your "Channel 57" stories together.
