The Inside Scoop: Pittiful News Meeting Notes

By Will Connor
It has come to my attention that some people do not, in fact, attend Pittiful News meetings. What a tragedy! I can hardly imagine how these people live! But I have decided that, as is my duty as a journalist, I will chronicle the goings-on of this great news establishment on the nights of Monday and Thursday.

  • I arrive at 8:55. Pretty empty tonight. We discuss our lives.
  • Holly arrived at precisely 9:00. The meeting began at 9:01 with one of the new members pitching an article about the elevators. It was a pretty funny concept, actually!
  • Oh hey, Cassandra has an apple.
  • Hannah doesn’t have any pitches today.
  • You know, I haven’t had an apple in a really long time…
  • Ben reads an article about sport. Not sports, sport. And about the Pitt News.
  • Good idea for the picture: an artist’s rendition of “the photo” they use!
  • God, I wish I had an apple.
  • She’s eating it now.
  • I haven’t been able to bite into an apple in two years. It’s been so long.
  • I can hear the crunch and the flow of the juices coming from that sweet, sweet fruit. I crave an apple of my own.
  • Oh, me? Nah sorry guys, nothing today. When are articles due? Thursday? Okay, cool.
  • My God, I need an apple so bad right now.
  • You see, dear reader, two years ago, I broke one of my front teeth, and since then I haven’t been able to bite into an apple.
  • What sort of cruel world must I live in where I cannot partake in the joy of an apple? What is life without this terrific fruit?
  • We’re discussing someone else’s pitch. I guess it wasn’t too great, but people are starting to laugh a bit, so it’s going somewhere.
  • Oh hey, that is a cool idea! Nice one, Phil!
  • You know, the back of my iPhone has that little apple logo on it… Makes me want an apple even more…
  • Fuck it, I’m eating my phone.
  • This doesn’t taste very good.
  • Why is everyone looking at me? …they noticed, didn’t they? I don’t feel so good.

And that’s all for this meeting! Come back next month for more of the inside scoop!
