CRANKENFUSS IS B-A-C-K (and he’s gonna point out some “alternative facts” on the Brian Williams Show at MSNBC)

Dr. CrankenfussPost #171 from Dr. Crankenfuss, The World’s Awesomest Raving and Rapping middle school blogger–

(Okay, I know what you’re thinking: “Did that guy get his face at a yard sale?” But this picture is exaggerated. It took me over five minutes to get this mad. When I’m not mad, which is at least 20 minutes a day, I look much better. But the IMPORTANT THING is my ideas will blow your mind. And that’s a GOOD THING!  Stick around. You’ll learn stuff about how adults always think kids don’t know that much, but THEY’RE the ones who need the educating.)

So first let me re-introduce myself. (It’s been so, so long!!)

Oh, me, oh, my,
Oh me, oh my,
I bet you thought
I’d said good-bye.

But no, this is not your lucky day. The Crank is B-A-A-C-K and my attitude is better, uh, worse than ever. See, Daniel wouldn’t let me post since like before time began because he was getting his house ready for sale and that took like forever ’cause it like needed lots of fixing up. But now that’s all over with and he says I can have my say again.

And I don’t want to start by talking about small stuff. I want to start off BIG! I’ll show you how adults can be REALLY STUPID!! And I’m gonna do this by taking on Brian Williams and MSNBC. (That’s a whole TV channel for those of you who don’t know.) They think they’re so smart because they’re “sophisticated adults,” but they don’t even know HOW TIME WORKS!

Don’t believe me?? Well, keep on reading.

Now I’m going to show you a picture from the show. You’ll see a big picture of President Trump, but this article isn’t about him. He’s just lucky enough to get his picture in my post. The important part is the title of the show and what you see at the bottom.

As you can see, the show is called The 11th Hour with Brian Williams and it comes comes on from 11:00 to 12:00 every weeknight.

There’s just one itty-bitty problem with this show’s title. BRIAN’S SHOW DOESN’T COME ON AT THE 11th HOUR!! IT COMES ON AT THE 12th HOUR!! Think about it. If there are 12 hours on a clock, the last hour is between 11:00 and 12:00. So the show should be called THE TWELFTH HOUR. And on top of that, since there are 24 hours in a day, really the show is on the last hour of the day and an even better name for it would be THE 24th HOUR. (Or at least something like AT THE END OF THE DAY, which is something that at least 50% of all guests on all of these news shows say over and over and over again (till all I do is count how many times people say, “At the end of the day…” instead of listening to anything else.)

Is there no one at MSNBC who can figure this out? How about Brian Williams, for a start? He can count, can’t he? They must have a whole team of party hearty smarty-pants running the show and they tell everyone how the world should be run AND THEY CAN’T EVEN TELL TIME!

Can you say “alternative facts”? Can you say “fake news”?

And yeah, I know there’s a really old expression that goes something like, “She got saved at the 11th hour,” which means she got saved at the last minute. But so what?? Just because the expression was wrong before doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be fixed. I mean people used to think the world was flat, but we got over that, didn’t we? And this mistake can be fixed too.

So how about it, Brian? How about it, MSNBC?

Let’s just spread the word about this and see how they respond. Time for the adults get some learnin’!
