Million Monkeys at Million Typewriters Fail to Replace Screenwriters

Yet he's still a better writer than Hemingway

In an attempt to replace the striking
WGA, the AMPTP has purchased one million monkeys and set them in front of one million typewriters. Thus far, the experiment has not gone well.

“The monkeys have no absolutely no grasp of format,” said Nick Counter,
the president of the AMPTP. They have also shown a tendency to ignore the preferred fonts, and have outright refused to respect traditional margin size. “Charlie Sheen doesn’t have time to interpret this freeform drivel. Humph!” commented a disgruntled Charlie Sheen.

The experiment has not been an absolute failure, however. Viewers have noted a distinct improvement in the quality of Mad TV, and there is no noticeable impact on Family Guy.
