Watch your noggin!

It's a Reality Show. Its name, you ask? The Three Watsons, of course!

Early reports say that the three celebs are having a difficult time getting along with each other. No problem, experts say, as controversy fuels Reality TV. But maybe not this much controversy.

Golf champ Bubba Watson, winner of the 2012 Masters Tournament, refuses to take off his green jacket. Apparently he even wears it to bed, and it's become quite wrinkled. In addition, he wants to spend most of the day practicing his long drives, instead of working on the show. He's already hit his costars and many staff members on the noggin with wayward golf balls and thinks a brief mea culpa will set things right. Word is that several injured workers plan to sue and/or apply for workers' compensation benefits.

Dr. Watson runs around the set with a magnifying glass, constantly seeking for "clues." He won't do anything at all without first seeking advice from his mentor, Sherlock Holmes. Since Holmes is in London, and the show is filmed in NY, it's constant telephoning, emailing, and texting.

IBM Computer Watson, who claims he holds all the world's knowledge on his hard drive, listens to all the conversations on the set, does an instantaneous fact check on them, and corrects anybody who makes an error about any fact at all, no matter how minor. Obnoxious!

"What a trio," a production assistant whined. "The Three Watsons? Fuhgeddaboutit! The Three Stooges is more like it."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
