Maybe the weirdest thing about this joke is the cool professionalism with which the story is delivered by Bobbie Battista, a Peabody-Award-winning journalist I remember seeing frequently on the Headline News Network (back when they actually did news). (MTV also played music videos.) (You’ll have to take my word on this stuff, kids: the world was different back then.)
