Paula Zahn Tonight
If you watch the Paula Zahn Show on CNN tonight (monday, May 2) you'll see an interesting guest: Me! They wanted someone who could blab on about hoaxes for a couple of minutes, so I fit the part. I didn't get to speak to Paula herself. In fact, I was actually looking at the wall during the entire interview while speaking to a reporter on speakerphone. It airs 8-9pm Eastern time, and 5-6pm Pacific. I think they're going to have a segment about 2 minutes long in which they're interviewing me.

So were you actually in front of a video camera, or is it going to be one of those "on the phone" things where they use some terrible File Photo they dig up from your high school Math Club pic?

I was actually in front of a camera. Though maybe an old high school photo would have been better. I had more hair in high school.

Alex, you are too much the man, and now you are too much the TV Man. Did Paula ask of me, Raoul? We had our night in Havana those many years ago, and I am sure she thinks of me still, as I do of her. Tell her Raoul still has the garter. She will know of what that means. Rrrraoul

So, if, as you say "I didn't get to speak to Paula herself. In fact, I was actually looking at the wall during the entire interview while speaking to a reporter on speakerphone" does that make your interview a hoax?

The CNN should have Alex on the TV all day. Alex, I am too proud, like you are the son I never admit to. Mira- the Llamas are crying, they are too happy, and they are drunk again. It is good to be King of the CNN TV show. Viva Alex. Rrrraoul

Just saw you on t.v about half an hour ago. Since they've interviewed you I think you'll have alot of visitors comming to your site for the rest of the month. Keep checking your stats. By the way I didn't hear of this site until now.
Posted by Guest  on  Mon May 02, 2005  at  08:51 PM
Okay- for all the people who are now seeing Alex's site of hoaxes: This Paula Zahn? She is mine, so do not give your time to woo her. For I, Raoul, The Psychic Gangster of Love, call to her even now. Soon she will be beside me, and we will want our time, so do not ask, for she will not tell. Nor will I. Rrrraoul.
Posted by Raoul  on  Mon May 02, 2005  at  09:07 PM
Of course, these new visitors may not stay long after Raoul gets through with them.

The Mistress says she would try this 'Paula', and perhaps accept her as a mendicant. But not before she wears the Harness of Supplication.

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Satellite Interviews, Alex. Hey, does this make you a "pundit" now?

*Swooooon* I know a celebrity! He even spoke to me once!! Be still, my heart! kiss

Well that's what I get for not paying attention to this site 24/7 - I missed it. sick
Posted by Nigel  on  Tue May 03, 2005  at  08:33 AM
That's what I get for being in the UK.
*huff*

Damn it, I missed it....I didn't know what time it came on and the Sat. Dish wasn't giving me any info. I left work before you put the time up on the museum.....

Don't go gettin' the big head Alex- remember, it's only CNN... when you make it on America's Funniest Home Videos, YOU HAVE ARRIVED
Posted by booch  on  Tue May 03, 2005  at  11:57 AM
A phooie. He'll only be a real celeb when he hits America's Most Wanted.

Actually, I'd say having a Zonkey named for you is about as high an honor as you should ever aspire to.
Posted by Big Gary C, in nirvana  in  Dallas, Texas  on  Tue May 03, 2005  at  05:37 PM
I mean, as high as anybody (not just Alex) should aspire to.
Posted by Big Gary C, in nirvana  in  Dallas, Texas  on  Tue May 03, 2005  at  05:40 PM
Yeah, Congrats, Alex. Who knows, they could name a whole species after you if it fooled the world for a generation, but was only a hoax. Of course, *you'd* never do that, right?
Posted by stork  on  Tue May 03, 2005  at  08:16 PM
Imposters, again, hah! Be purchased, foul worm! But then, poor vince doesn't get it - just another hapless fool, who think's it's all about sex. Spite the eye that wanders. Mistress Carissa admits only the most submissive to her purvey. Ye know not the tales of the Enclave, fool, nor the wisdom thereof. The vile supplicants are many, the tolerated mendicants are few, but the honored Inner Circle of the Delights of the Mistress is beholden to no other. And the Prelates watch over all. Behest thee!
Posted by stork in the Enclave  on  Tue May 03, 2005  at  08:27 PM
This Stork talks like Paula Zahn did in Havana... perhaps mi Paulita has felt my psychic call... perhaps we can be one again... Damn, them. Damn them all and their estupid Networks... Paula- I await you. Rrrraoul
Posted by Raoul  on  Wed May 04, 2005  at  09:27 AM
Ah, but this 'Paula', she is sooo sweet for you, Rrrraoul, is she not? Take the wench, say I! What prevails in the outer world is of no concern to the entities of the Enclave. Perchance she will "tickle your fancy", to speak.
