Extract from Story:
CARPINTERIA, California – The happy former royal couple recently sat down with Tittle Tattle Tonight reporter, Pico de Gallo, and talked about their life post-Buckingham Palace. Considering that the country, like most countries, is presently a mess due to the C-19 virus, de Gallo asked what they thought about living in the good old USA.

A challenge for you:

Find something funny in this story.

I couldn't, but then - trying to think 'outside the box' - I reasoned that the 'funny' thing about the story might be that it contains nothing funny.

So, under the picture of Harry and Megan, it says they’re all smiles. Now Megan is all smiles, but I’m not sure Harry is all smiles. Maybe he’s smiling but maybe he has gas. If he has gas, then maybe he’s farting, and farts are always funny. But that’s not clear.

So anyway, when I looked up at the picture, I expected Harry to be all smiles, be he isn’t really, so that was sort of surprising and maybe funny a little, but maybe it wasn’t after all.

Some words are just funny in themselves, like pickles. I don’t think avocados is one of those words though. I’m tired now.

Dear Spoof,

This reminds me of

.

Something for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

Can’t wait to see them cheering on the Lakers from their $1000 seats at the Staples Center. They will be the only ones there; but their smiles will warm everyone watching them makes fools of themselves.

But, if they will be "the only ones there", where is "everyone watching them" watching them from?

Is this another example of Erskin's 'barber' conundrum?
