Please Make It Stop

I keep reading Michael Carrese's stuff in the TU's Capitol Confidential blog and trying to squeeze out out a laugh, but if I squeeze any harder I may have an accident. I think Carrese's OiNk (Only in New York) show is funny -it appears at the Egg tomorrow night- but his faux news bits from the TU blog and on Empire Page? Eh...Not so much. For example:
Albany Mayor Jerry Jennings had a run-in with state troopers at the Capitol late last night when he was found hiding behind the statue of Gen. Sheridan holding what appeared to be an "Acme" brand dynamite detonator.

Or this:

GE says there will a further delay in the start of the Hudson River dredging project because a dog ate its master plan, and they have to start from scratch.
It's all like that. Maybe it's just me, but this stuff reads like what you'd get from a precocious high school junior ---or that annoying person in your office who tries way too hard to make everything funny.

Carrese will appear this morning at 10 on Live from the State Capitol with Fred Dicker on WROW. Go to their web site to listen live online.
