    Good news: Bad news

    The good news - Congratulations the mall in your community just got two more tenants and is now at 100% occupancy
    The bad news - the new tenants are a second hand clothing store and the "New Life Evangelical Holy Scripture Church"

    EDIT: in case I didn't make it clear, the intent of this thread is to propose your own humorous good news/bad news scenarios

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    The good news: You have finally landed on a deserted island and have the entire tropical paradise to yourself and your loved ones. There seems to be plenty of fruit, fresh water, and fish to harvest.
    The bad news: No one knows how to make coconut rum.

    Good News, Hillary Clinton will lose in November.
    Bad News, Trump will become President.
    The most foolish thing one can do this fall is to vote for Clinton or Trump. Wake up, get out of the matrix, and send a message to the political establishment that you won't play their game.

    Good news! You've just won four tickets to see AC/DC in concert at the the Palace of Auburn Hills in Auburn Hills, MI! Been wanting to see them since 1985 back when you were in 8th grade and listening to Fly on the Wall! Can't wait to see Angus Young in action!

    The Bad News?! The show is now cancelled. Lead singer Brian Johnson risks going completely deaf if he continues with the show. Cue the Guest Vocalist!
