Ministers of Controversy

The implicit promise of changing a story
is to make people notice how dumb it is.
But the group has no inclination to shed its mind.

Like the wallflower dragon whose bullying lawyer
leaked a hot publicity fondue,
winning a palace despite being downgraded

from a pricey crystal nugget to a set of chocolate shoes.
That's one of the perks of ridiculousness.
Everything changes, but nothing draws attention.

-- Glenn R. Frantz

Farewell fondue sets: EU tighten sanctions on brutal Syrian 
     regime with shopping and travelling ban on Assad's wife 
     (but there's nothing to stop her from returning to UK)
Etch A Sketch flap cheers Bryan firm
Appealing an MPAA Rating Is Pointless (But Studios Should 
     Do It Anyway)
