... or so says Angus Lind over at Fox 8:
In a surprising development rivaling the Saints winning the Super Bowl, The New Orleans Levee and Gambit announced at a press conference early today that the alternative newspapers will merge May 1.
We feel The Levee will bring Gambit some much-needed credibility, said Levee owner and publisher Rudy Vorkapic. The Levee, as everyone knows, has such great respect for the truth that we only use it in emergencies.
Gambit political analyst and spokesman Clancy DuBos said, Thirty-four, thirty-three, thirty-two, a comment that left reporters puzzled.
Hes too busy counting down the days Mayor C-Ray has left in office, explained his wife, Gambit publisher Margo DuBos. We had technicians out all day yesterday because the countdown clock is at least 43 seconds off and Clancy is a stickler for accuracy, especially in this case.
But, she added, We feel that Gambits reputation for sophomoric humor combined with The Levees nose for news especially Rudys honker will provide New Orleans area residents an innovative publication that will truly be a model for where news-gathering is headed in the 21st century.
It would take Angus to let us know what's really going on around here. We welcome our new overlords!
