A new ailment in a world of pain has reared its ugly face in the twin cities of St Paul and, er, the other one. The unlikely victims of the latest scourge of humanity is being called "Media fatigue" or MF.
The victims diagnosed with the disease whose symptoms are photophythalmia, tintinitis and vague feelings of exploitation were a black couple from right here in St Paul.
Edith and Archibald Bunker were admitted to the St Paul medical center after appearing in the emergency room blind, deafb and possibly flushed. After numerous tests and interviews the 30 year married pair admitted that they had accepted an undisclosed payment to attend the RNC.
Edith explained that at first it seemed like an easy buck but once the convention got under way the amount of photos and footage taken with the loud cheers from the all-white crowd desperate for some token diversity things turned for the worse.
Archie was heard to mutter: "Stifle yourself Edith!"
