|Dr. V on Al Jazeera!|
Here's an excerpt from the interview:
Al Jazeera reporter: Doctor Vito, thank you so much for agreeing to appear on the show today.
Doctor Vito: As long as those five beautiful women show up at my room tonight, we're even, buddy.
Al Jazeera: Tell me, Doctor Vito, what brings you to Libya?
Doctor Vito: Well, I'm starting a new gig at a blog next week and I wanted to rest up, to get ready, you know? So I just picked a country name out of a hat. (Notices activity in the square outside, visible through studio window.) What's going on out there? A festival?
Al Jazeera: (Looks embarrassed) I'm sorry. I was under the impression that you were here to talk about the Libyan situation.
Doctor Vito: What Libyan situation? Is it okay if I smoke? (Takes out pack of Luckies, lights one.) It's just that my new gig is on this great blog called The Worlds Blog. (Smiles broadly). It's number one on the Vatican's hate list. That's how the whole thing came about. In a men's room in Rome last month, I noticed the popey guy hanging out near the stalls and overheard him spewing venom about this blog. So I checked it out. Love the baseball talk! (Link to the Worlds Blog appears at bottom of Al Jazeera screen.)
Tell me, son. Is something going on in this country? (Looks out window, sees multiple explosions, sits up straighter.) Hell! Now you tell me what's going on right now!And then we lost electricity. I never did find out what happened during the rest of the show. But let me tell you: the blog hits shot up after Al Jazeera showed the site address onscreen. Dog! I swear, you guys are gonna love Doctor Vito. He is so aware. It's eerie!
