Florida Board of Education Announce Upcoming Curriculum Decided Via Trial By Combat

TALLAHASSEE, FL — There will be another reason to remember August 28th, as it will not only be the 60th anniversary of the March on Washington but will also serve as the date Floridians finally settle the education debate — the Florida Board of Education announced this week the upcoming school curriculum will be decided via trial by combat.

“We affirm this issue will be resolved in the ways of old,” said chairman of Florida’s board of education, Ben Gibson, adding, “Let those who are true warriors of their cause spill the blood of their opposition and finally put to rest the debate over what is taught in our classrooms. The future of this state depends on it.”

According to documents filed with the state legislature, the trials will take place from 2 - 5 am along U.S. Route 192, just southeast of Disney World Orlando, in the parking lot that joins the Cracker Barrel and Waffle House. Leading members of the Moms for Liberty and Florida Freedom to Read Project must submit their respective rosters, listing the names of selected tributes, by Friday, August 25th, at sundown.

Preliminary negotiations determined what is fair and foul — as bricks, bats, axes, knives, mace, hammers, spears, sickles, scythes, brass knuckles, whips, and nunchucks will all be permitted. However, the terms state projectiles, including throwing stars, slingshots, blowguns, crossbows, boomerangs, and firearms will not be allowed. Each side will be granted one alligator.

Writers Strike Update: Executives Say Future of AI a Non-Issue Because Without a Soul There is Nothing for Them to Suck Out

Part of the issue, at least in the minds of the writers, is the rise of artificial intelligence and its potential to put writers out of work. But studio executives say that couldn’t be further from their intentions with regard to the use of the breakthrough technology, as AI has no soul and therefore leaves them with nothing to suck out.

“A majority of the fun is wringing these people completely dry as we extract every ounce of talent they possess while slowly jading them towards the creative process altogether,” said a major studio executive, who for legal reasons, will remain nameless, adding, “Sure, AI can churn out a continuous stream of content by plugging in a few focus-group-tested phrases, but it doesn’t have any beliefs or values for us to make them compromise on in order to make money, so what’s the point?”
