(Hollywood) - A reporter for TheSpoof.com, Andrew Lawrence, of Los Angeles, CA, was an eyewitness today to the mysterious absence of any striking writers picketing outside Universal Studios and Warner Bros Studio.
According to Andrew, "I live nearby both studios. On Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, at 9AM, I was driving to the supermarket to pick up a Thanksgiving turkey. As I drove past both studios, where dozens and dozens of strikers are usually walking the picket lines, I noticed there were no marchers, no picketers, no picket signs. Not a one."
Where were the picketing strikers? The day before Thanksgiving is not a holiday yet apparently the striking writers saw fit to take the day off. Did all the writers go away for Thanksgiving? Among the thousands of Hollywood writers on strike couldn't the Writer's Guild find a few to walk the picket line? How can writers, who aren't working, have a day off? Or do they start the strike day later, say 10AM and end early, say 2PM?
Where were the strikers? What kind of a strike is this, with no picketers? C'mon, writers, show 'em you're serious. Get your asses out on the picket lines!
