Emergency City Council Session Called

Mayor Marsha Tilson has called an emergency meeting of the City Council for tonight, January 12, at 7:30 pm.

“You may have heard that a Hollywood producer has been asking questions around town,” the mayor said in her memo to the council members. “He wants to film one of those God awful dating reality shows here to find men for all the desperate single women of Fool’s Gold.”

Fool’s Gold has become rather infamous in recent months, thanks to press about the so-called “man shortage.” Late night talk shows have had a field day with jokes about the lonely women in our small California town. Local women are getting tired of being the punch line of a national joke.

Happy women toasting with wineAt Jo’s Bar, we asked a few young, single women if they would consider being participants on the show.

“No way!” shouted one of the Hendrix triplets.

It’s difficult to tell the triplets apart, but it doesn’t really matter because her sisters immediately echoed the sentiment. So did the other women in the bar. In fact, we were unable to find any local woman who would look for love on a TV show.

However, the producer claims he’s already found a few women eager to be on TV, and the mayor believes he’s telling the truth. In her memo, she went on to say that she wasn’t sure the council would be able to stop the show from filming. She has called the meeting to figure out damage control.

“If we’re going to be on TV, let’s do our best to make sure that the world sees Fool’s Gold as the wonderful place it is. A town filled with confident, independent, happy women… and men.”
