EDITOR: Hey, Xiao Huang. Stop playing Freecell! We have a paper to write.
XIAO HUANG: Yes boss.
EDITOR: That three-legged cow story was really popular, you know. Do you have any more crazy animal antics to fill all that terrible space in our newspaper this week?
XIAO HUANG: Erm. (Shuffles through a pile of papers.) How about these ones, boss?
EDITOR: Excellent. These escaped pigs escaping from the... erm.. police will fill page 13 on Monday, while these crazy traffic hazard monkeys of Guiyang can help us deal with our content problem for Tuesday. Good work Xiao Huang!
