Did April Fool’s Day come late this year?
Aishwarya Rai is slated to appear in a special version of the American show “Jerry Springer: Too Hot For TV” episode in which she will contest with a 380 pound woman. Simone Sheffield, manager to Aishwarya Rai, said, “Miss Rai would be appearing on a special version of “Jerry Springer: Too Hot For TV” episode where the beautiful actress will fight with a 380 pound woman in a trailer over some guy with a mullet, no teeth, and a 7th grade education. The website reported Aishwarya as saying that she is thrilled for the chance to show her talent to such a discriminating audience. “I’ve heard some wonderful things about Jerry Springer. He told me that many of the actresses on his show go on to become great Hollywood screen stars.
Knowing Ash’s conservative nature, she has been promised that no one will touch her unduly or kiss her or try to rip off her clothes.
Apart from this show, Ash is also reported to be booked for Roger Lodge’s show “Blind Date”. It is learnt that on the show Ash will date a former stripper named Lorenzo who will try to form a love connection with the Bollywood stunner during the episode. Ash is believed to be very excited about these shows.
And then I read the original article again. The TOI staffer had quoted his source as spoof.comIncidentally, this is the original article.
Now let’s consider the TOI staffer who wrote this. He stumbles across an article in a webzine called “spoof.com”. No warning bells ring. Evidently he does not know what “spoof” means. Nor does he want to find out.
And then serves up this parody as a “report”——-high journalistic standards indeed. Does TOI have an editor or do correspondents just barf anything they want to?
