Gag Headlines

Recommended Posts

A while back I saw a thread somewhere that featured guests contributing mock "gag" headlines for news articles about Desperate Housewives. I believe one of them went: "Denton Faces Class Action Lawsuit From Bored Fans Who Want Their Time Back".

 

In any event, I got a real kick out of them and thought maybe we could come up with a few newsworthy joke stories about Lucy and company. Obviously everything said here will be in fun and is not meant to be taken seriously or as insults.

 

"I Love Loosey: Andes, Windom share details of Ball's flirtatious nature on set"

 

" 'Lucy' propman recovering from Joan Crawford inflicted wire-hanger wounds"

 

"Lucy Show soundstage flooded due to overflowing toilet; Blondell investigated"

 

"Desperately Seeking Fred: Unemployed Vance begs Frawley to resurrect Fred & Ethel in new show"

 

"Morton Developing TLS Spinoff for Himself; Gould approached to co-star"

 

"Dick Martin's return for TLS finale cancelled due to audiences not remembering who his character was"

 

"My Three Spinoffs: Ball to produce 3 new pilots for Garrett, Hart and Moore in apology for dumping them from her show"

 

"Here's Lucy, Mother's-in-Law crossover cancelled; Carmel quits in protest"

 

"Burton, Taylor episode to be reshot after cameraman accidentally loads camera with black & white film; everyone enraged at having to spend another week together"

 

"Lost 7th Season Here's Lucy scripts discovered; all would have showcased Prohaska's gorilla act"
