Writers Strike Back: Revenge of the Scribes

Posted on November 16, 2007

At last, the drama of the Writers' Strike has been made into a classic martial arts epic. Best lines: "We'll see if your pen really is mightier than these! [hurls swords in disgust]" and "Bring me the head of Aaron Sorkin...and a nonfat latte!" This is what happens when you have comedy writers on strike who are used to writing on deadline for ten hours a day. The concept of "free time" appears to be an alien one to them.
