image for Franken desperately seeking Davis
A beaten Al Franken

CHICAGO -- Author/comedian Al Franken is financing a massive search for his ex-writing partner, Tom Davis.

Franken, whose solo career has spawned books and much media attention, was once a member of the team Franken and Davis, both who wrote for Saturday Night Live and even made some movie appearances together.

The search comes at a time when Franken is having problems being funny. "He's burned out," said a close friend, "and needs that Davis juice again."

"Tom was always the funnier one anyway," said a former manager.

"Al's a millionaire now," said a show business attorney currently looking for a high-profile lawsuit to take on, "and Tom may be down and out and need some work."

"Tom hates Al," said a former writing cohort of the duo. "Al, on the other hand, idolizes Tom and once told me that everything he did after the breakup was Tom material."

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