The Drunk News   (+13, -4)  [vote for, against]
Like the regular news, minus the pretense

An ostensibly “straight” newscast—anchors in nice suits presenting current events, human interest stories, weather, and so on—but everyone is already two sheets to the wind, and diligently working on the third. The newscast ends when the last anchor collapses in a pool of his own vomit.

I made some drunk news the other night.

Interviews with equally intoxicated politicians and celebrities would be most entertaining, particulary when the point is reached that articulate and reasonable debate is replaced by a repeated invitation to "Come outside and say that you bastard, I will kick your bloody head in.", accompanied by the removal of jackets.

I know someone who once read out the local weather forecast on late night BBC news when he was drunk. He kept repeating in a slurred voice that it was going to be very nice; lovely in fact; and everyone would be happy. He was never heard reading the weather again...

Only if we can get politicians giving speeches equally basted.

Combined with Naked News this could prove interesting. [+]

There was a Russian TV channel that has a topless newsreader for a while, but it didn't catch on, and in the end he just went back to wearing a shirt and tie like his colleagues.

[21] Haha- I actually watched Naked News, but here in the US they blurred out the woman's breasts! We should have halfbaked news!
-- xandram, Dec 03 2012

And the difference would be what, exactly?
-- 8th of 7, Dec 03 2012

Schhoo wait! They'"'re drunk an' im sober...will never work. I like it they way it is, the natural order of things. I am drunk and I think they are reporting emus...

AND some of us actually get stuff done whilst we are stoned! (really)

From the help page: “Gross out humor.”

// The newscast ends when the last anchor collapses in a pool of his own vomit//

Yep. [marked-for-deletion]

Usually the m-f-d is only if the gross out humor is the central idea of the idea. For example a stool made out of human excrement called the stool stool that is height adjustable by adding additional stool.

Also it's not really good to start doing retaliatory m-f-ds.

The vast majority of ideas on the Halfbakery could be MFD'd, based on the rules. Bad science, baked, etc.

If someone wants to be a stickler, then then they ought to be held to the same standard. Just saying.
-- Kansan101, Dec 05 2012

[Kans], just hang around for a bit, keep posting ideas, and you'll get how this place works. Having your idea M-F-D is not a mark against you or a personal attack. Also, there is a difference between 'bad science' and 'not intended to be taken seriously'.

//noobs// sp. "newbs".

Not counting the hundreds of my ideas that actually have been deleted I still have a handful in there that arguably should be... not sayin' which ones of course: I still like them.
