...especially if you have the same warped sense of humour that I have. We just received this news release here in our newsroom. General consensus here is that it is an early leader for 2007 Dumbass News Release of the Year, and it will take a lot of creativity to beat it.
One more note before your read it: I mean absolutely no disrespect to James Brown or his family. The release is from the company that booked his Ottawa appearance.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Thursday, January 04, 2007
James Brown was scheduled to perform at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa this evening. Regrettably Mr. Brown passed away on December 25, 2006. Refunds are available at point of purchase. Tickets purchased by debit and credit cards will be automatically refunded.
