I've been to France. Newspapers have always been delivered by drones swimming in ennui.

Merde. Je ne suis pas acheter il.

Shouldn't the dateline be April 1?

Great. Drones piloted by postal workers. That would work here, you betcha.

Over here, a great many armed Americans would welcome the challenge.

Ah (crackle, static) Firebird lead, I show two, repeat zero-two, copies USA Today at your seven, angels four. Buster.

Copy that, Big Mama, permission to engage.

Weapons free, F-birds, light 'em up.

Agree with Steve and Omni. I don't need my newspaper or packages delivered to my roof. (FedEx is considering the technology when it's legal here.)

Too busy with Google Nose to be bothered with this nonsense.

I saw the Google Nose promo. Funny.

Well, if you are behind on your bill, it will shoot up the apartment, and or grab something to hock, and fly it back to the paper. And if you've pissed off the editor, it'll be a flying version of the Land Shark from he famous SNL skits.

Will it throw the paper through the window like the paper garcon does ?

For those in need of A Little Night Music:

We must be rich.
Look, over there!
Me here with feet on the ground,
Getting news from mid-air..
Where are the drones?

Isn't it bliss?
Don't you approve?
Darn things keep buzzing around,
Delivering the news.

Where are the drones?
Send in the drones.

Just when I'd stopped
Subscribing to news
I opened the window wide,
Then fled outside...

Making deliveries again
From straight out of the air.
Tried paying my bill,
Strange, no one is there.

Don't you love news?
I thought I did.
But when it buzzed by my bathroom,
I ran and hid.
And where are the drones?
Send in the drones.

Delivering news.
Right there in your lap
That one was so close,
it frightened my cat!

And where are the drones?
There ought to be drones...
Don't bother,
They're here...
