This week's Friday Sketch War theme was "Social Networking":
Sketch War Social Networking Edition "'Why Don't You Read My Blog?'" FADE IN: INT. CAFÉ - DAY PETER (30s) sits at a table in a sidewalk café and picks at a sandwich. A backpack sits at his feet. Across from him sits his brother HARTWELL (40s). HARTWELL -- and the kids are good. Work is good. Mom's doing better. She says "Hi." PETER Cool. HARTWELL How was your month? PETER I dunno. Stuff happened. Pretty much like I wrote on the blog. HARTWELL I don't read your blog. PETER I posted a big summary of how February went. HARTWELL I don't read your blog. PETER I emailed you a copy of the blog entry. HARTWELL I don't -- what did your blog say? PETER I got a wart lasered off. I cooked tiramisu for the first time. There were layoffs at work. HARTWELL You couldn't just tell me that? PETER Well, the blog explains it better. It explains context and significance. HARTWELL What did your blog say? PETER I don't want to bore myself repeating exactly what I've already written. HARTWELL What did it say? PETER I don't remember. Oh, wait a sec. Peter pulls a printout out of the backpack, puts it in front of Hartwell. Hartwell sets it aside. HARTWELL No, just summarize. PETER But it's right there. HARTWELL Summarize. PETER Fine, I'll read it to you. Peter reaches for the printout. They start fighting over it. HARTWELL I just want to know how your month was. PETER If you really cared, you'd already know! They stop fighting over it. HARTWELL Now, that's not fair. PETER Yeah, you've got a point. HARTWELL I need beer. Want anything? Peter shrugs. Hartwell goes into the café. MADELINE (20s) happens by. MADELINE Hey, Peter! PETER Hi Madeline! MADELINE I read your blog today! PETER I read yours, too! Long pause. Neither of them can think of anything further to say. MADELINE Okay, see you later! PETER Yup. Madeline exits. Peter picks up the printout and reads it over. FADE TO BLACK.
