The Fox News Intern's ExplanationEdit

Dude, nobody told me spelling was part of the job, or I totally would have taken the position at Eddie Bauer. My uncle said this internship would like, totally look good on my resume and all, and he's like, friends with Rupert, so I was like, sure, why not? But I didn't think I was gonna have to really, like, work, you know? I mean, my buddy Pee never even had to show up for his internship. And O'Reilly is always like, asking me questions, you know what I mean? Like, "Do you work out?" "Do you have a girlfriend? Or a boyfriend?" That kind of creepy stuff. He's not right. I mean, how am I supposed to think with all that going on??? And then people get all crazy because I accidentally put an "A" instead of an "E" in "Stephen"?? It was an accident! I swear. I mean, I might get fired. Over a typo. Like, can that happen? I'm gonna call Pee. I think he might be interning for a lawyer now.
