All Set to Be Shut Down


That is the name of the quiz show that is destined to sweep America and its franchise is likely to stretch all over the world. The brain behind it is Arnold Webstein who used to work as a secretary in the White House, and he takes up the story.

While I was there I was astonished just how much in the dark we were kept about who really was making decisions at the top, what those decisions were and where they came from. The more I found out about it the more in the dark I realised we were. Not even the Senate had the foggiest idea of what really was going on in the control room at the White House.

So, when they fired me for snooping I started up my own televison company and that is where the idea came from because the media I realised, when I was a blind foot soldier for the government, works like a principality answerable to nobody.

People make decisions about people's lives and nobody really knows who they are or what they are about. And many decisions are made by outside parties that have a vested interest in the workings of the company.

As I began to dig I found out that the really big decision makers in every major institution in America are virtually incognito. Like a secret Cabbala. Moreover, they enjoy a back room network where they watch each other's backs. Bit like the Bilderberg people.

The boys calling the shots are unknown to the vast majority of the little people who do their bidding. So me and a few colleagues got together and came up with the idea of a quiz show based loosely on the famous Brit TV show University Challenge.

Competing will be just the ordinary folk who work for these institutions... from the tea boy to the CEO who talks to his bosses only by phone. First up will be the Cistercian monks of St. Bonaventure Monastery Versus the New York branch of Scientology. I mean, ask yourself... what the hell does a monk really know about what is going on in the secret chambers of the Vatican? Or the Freemason who trips along to his Lodge for a beer know about the wheelings and dealings of his Grand Masters who run the government and are heavily into power and business?

So, the following week we will have the Boston Chapter of Free Masons Versus The Foreign Office and so on. Then the New York Times Versus The Pentagon. And so on.

The winning team will get a free trip to Disney Land all expenses paid and a spot on the Oprah Show. It will get people asking questions.. the right questions... until they shut us down of course... in the name of democracy.

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