Everybody Scoops


Yeah, so, the Scoop has arrived.

I was worried that my take on the Scoop would be too mean-spirited for the SF Examiner. The tone is no different than it was five years ago, but they’ve had another writer since then, and her take on the Scoop is a little friendlier. I, on the other hand, think celebrities deserve to be mocked because they are rich and famous and I’m not. I kid. Not all celebrities deserved to be mocked, just most of them.

By the way, do not take my writing the Scoop as any kind of endorsement of the SF Examiner’s Opinion pages. Politically, I find the Examiner to be, well, wrong. This is the paper that endorsed George W. and McCain … in San Francisco. I know, right?

I do have some awesome friends who work there, so the paper isn’t all bad — just the Opinion pages. Skip them.

So anyway, click here to read the Scoop online; OR, if you want to see how it looks in the printed edition you can click here, and flip to page 22. In the e-edition, there is some Scoop that isn’t online, including a joke about Kate Gosselin using her uterus as a clown car.


Author: The Sonia Show

I'm a writer/mocker/goober/mother in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, podcast, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. Great column, Sonia. Keep up the snarky work. Is it wrong that I wish all the Kardashians would perish in horrible hot tub accident?

  2. Yay! I’m impressed at your ability to put these together so soon after having a baby. I wasn’t really capable of composing coherent sentences for many months after giving birth. Arguably, I’m still not capable…
