Video Kills the Radio Star

Funny story written by John Carroll

Wednesday, 19 May 2004

In an event which has shocked fans of both radio star and video, the radio star, whose family wished to keep anonymous, was found dead in his summer home in California. The video, who also wished to remain anonymous, was quickly apprehended by the police when seen fleeing from the scene.

"I heard him on my wireless back in '52." The video recalled during testimony on Sunday. The video, who had previously admitted to the stalker-like tendencies of "lying awake intent in tuning in on him (the radio star)", later, said he felt as if the radio star was, "In my mind, and in my car". The video later burst into tears as the prosecutor told him, "You can't rewind - You've gone too far. Oh-a oh."

The defense, who had earlier planned to "put all the blame on VCR", later said that they simply have given up at this point, and expect a minimum sentence of 15 years. The defense was mostly made up of young lawyers who had "met in an abandoned studio", who also later admitted that this was their first case. "He (the video) was the first one." An anonymous lawyer told reporters, later adding, "He was the last one."

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