"Wait! I got it....oh, no, almost had it there."

TOPEKA, KS-Local Blockbuster manager Tim Bosley yesterday announced that during a routine checkout of ‘Empire Records', he was struck by the solution to the worldwide problem of hunger. At a press conference today where hundreds of media, government officials and do-gooders alike waited impatiently for the solution to be presented, Bosley came out to a hail of applause, stepped up to the podium, and summarily forgot the answer.

"Ladies and gentleman," said Bosley, wearing his best pressed Blockbuster uniform with a freshly shined nametag reading ‘MANAGER', "I have single handily come up to the much anticipated and highly valued answer to world hunger. The solution to world hunger is…" a puzzled look came over Bosley's face as he stopped speaking. The roomful of audience hung in tension as Bosley then announced that the answer had just slipped his mind. "Gosh darn it," he said with a laugh. "Don't you hate it when that happens? Man, well, just hold on for a little bit. I'm sure it'll come back soon. Talk about a brain fart, huh?"

Bosley has reportedly been retracing his steps, checking and rechecking out copies of ‘Empire Records' in hopes that the answer will return to him that way, but he isn't holding out much hope. "I've got to tell you, I don't know if this one is going to come back." He said with a shrug. "Oh well, I suppose. You win some, you lose some, right?"
