  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
The Amazing Race by finnguy on 1 April 2004 9:12am
I just read on eonline.com that they're going to make a celebrity version of 'The Amazing Race' - and Michael's going to be in it! Apparently he's going to be paired with John Cleese - a winning partnership, I would think. Surely there's no-one better than our Michael at finding his way around the world.

Other teams include:
Venus and Serena Williams;
Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel;
Bradley Whitford and Joshua Malina (Josh and Will from The West Wing);
(former US Vice-Presidents) Al Gore and Dan Quayle.

No details on when it's going to be recorded/aired, but should make for good viewing.

Eh? I couldn't find anything about this on the web. Don't believe you, surely Michael wouldn't do anything like that. Ah, perhaps today's date caused you thus to post?

You're quite right Gwen - it was my little attempt at a bit of April Foolery. However, in my mind it worked if it caused even one person to go online looking for a bit more information.

Anybody else carry out or hear about any good tricks?

It's not real impressive, but I altered a bulletin board at one of the factories I teach at on Thursdays. In the reception area of ITW Pronovia Stamping (they stamp plastic parts, not feet), there are several line graphs posted which show various vital statistics for the company on a month by month basis. Now, in addition to "Amount Spent on Office Supplies" and "Time Lapsed between Order and Delivery", there's "Number of Stamping-Related Fatalties". I wonder if it's still there. David
