From the only reliable source of news on the net, the Onion. Actually, I can think of certain domestic situations where a teleprompter could come in handy. Son learning to drive hits a tree. I turn to the teleprompter and read through gritted teeth: “Don’t worry. I’m not mad. We just have to clarify the functions of the gas pedal and the brake. We will laugh about this in years to come!” I have a kidney stone. I turn to the teleprompter and read through yelps of pain: “Oh my, I am having another kidney stone! Gee that smarts! Well it should resolve itself in three or four days! Please ignore any screams I may make in the meantime!” Dog has an accident: “Another accident! I will just clean this up, and then we can go for another walk! We will get you house trained yet, you good Dog!” On second thought I think I will forgo the teleprompter.
