ZZ Top to Join Morning Call Editorial Board in '08
Allentown: As part of a campaign to attract new readers, the Morning Call today announced that Houston-based blues rock band ZZ Top is joining its editorial board. Publisher Tim Kennedy proudly announced, "I ordered my opinion writers to grow beards or moustaches, but it just wasn't catching on. Besides, Micek keeps complaining about a hormone deficiency. This should do the trick."
The band has already submitted some zingers, according to Kennedy, with headlines that correspond to past hit singles, like "Local Cops - Arrested for Driving While Blind" and "Callahan - Sharp Dressed Man."
