Lunch Box

Since The Daily Show with Jon Stewart doesn’t quite spoof New York politics often enough, Room 8 launched a daily video segment called Lunch Box, featuring some guy named Adam Green.

Green sounds like an equal offender and gets the tone of most of the conversations I imagine are taking place in a lot of other newsrooms.

First, Green (no relation to Mark) compared Andrew Cuomo’s endorsement by Charlie King and the New York Post to his own endorsement of a chocolate doughnut. “It stood up to whitey the other day in the projects. It got moxie.”

Then, when discussing Jonathan Tasin’s latest video ads, Green says:

“We’re sorry you don’t have the coffers to run a regular promo on the radio, but this little bit of craziness is one crotch-kick away from being the all-time state university frat drinking game.”

The premiere episode is here.
