Funny story written by Clete Plow

Following hot on the designer heels of the ratings smash "The Swan" Fox has announced plans for a career makeover show, "The Stork". Tina Tinee, Fox Executive Vice President for Concepts So Crazy They Might Just Work, explained, "In this show 12 contestants will vie to be made-over from ordinary delivery guys - the type who usually deliver Pizzas, Newspapers, Auto Parts, Subpoenas, Chinese food - that kind of stuff - into a professional deliverer of newborn babies. An Obstee oh - oh, what was it, mmm - tip of my tongue - Obsteee - - watcha call it Doctor, You know, I go to one… it's an OB something…Anyway, the winner gets to deliver a real baby on Prime Time TV!"

When reached on the 14th Green at Stonewater Golf Club, Dr. Hyman Sizzorpokencutskivich of the Cleveland Clinic said he wasn't too worried about the novice delivery men, "We really don't have to do too much ourselves when it comes to delivering a baby - it's pretty much a no-brainer, so I think a guy who is experienced in getting the right deli tray to an office party can probably handle the job. I mean it's not like delivering a funny speech - now that is hard."

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