Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Beautiful Liar

This is the way to sell newspapers.

The headline story is about how the impeachment complaint against PGMA cannot be replaced, amended or supplemented. Place a huge Beyonce photo near it, with her story on the lower right of the photo. Then watch readers gasp then grab your paper off the shelf.

(I must admit though, natawa ako.)

Kalowka, my officemate started blurting out “To the left, to the left …” when she grabbed the paper ahead of everyone else thinking the headline was about Beyonce..hehe..

Haha napalingon rin ako sa banner ng Philstar. Sponsor ba sila ng Beyonce Concert?

Grabe, naalala ko tuloy yung mga exercises namin sa journ about sa paggawa ng news banners. Hehe.
