If I should ever win an Academy Award—

I would walk to the stage, take hold of the Oscar, walk to the mic, and say—

“What can I say?”

(pause — after a moment)

“No, literally, what can I say? I am an actor. I need a writer, NOW!”

(Choose one from the audience known for comedy writing. Set this up ahead.)

“_____, come up here!”

( _____ coaches me through all the words, directing all my inflections, pauses, tears, etc., and all the extreme affect displays usually seen at such moments, recalling past acceptance speeches. I would then close with all sincerity.)

    [JFD says: I’ve played it for years. All of them losing years. Pure chance, like a lightening bolt.
    You haven’t had that yet, have you?? No? There you go! You are using up all your good luck on avoiding
    a lightening bolt out of the gray. Now which good luck would you rather have, winning money or avoiding
    sure death? JFD 2/7/14.]

Can WordPress be placed into an existing website?
