Child Masters Finger Whistle
“Fwoot fwoot!” yells kid, hand shoved in mouth
Masthead: hey do you have a second
News Desk: Yes, what’s up?
Masthead: the top hed today about the whistling. does she actually know how to whistle
News Desk: No, not actually. We handle that in the dek, where it says that she “yells fwoot fwoot”.
Masthead: yes but in the hed it says she mastered it
News Desk: Right, we are being a little cheeky there.
Masthead: i dont think we should be in the business of being cheeky
News Desk: That’s literally the whole vibe of this paper.
Masthead: im just concerned that kinas grandparents will think that she actually knows how to whistle and will talk about it on instagram
News Desk: Nobody in their right mind would think a four year old knows how to whistle with her fingers. I don’t know how to whistle with my fingers.
Masthead: nor i
News Desk: So why would you be concerned that her grandparents would think that she could actually hail a taxi with her finger whistle?
Masthead: theres some precedent here
News Desk: Well the edition’s gone to press. What do you want me to do here?
Masthead: i dunno, issue a correction or something
News Desk: What if I just paste this chat into the newsletter?
Masthead: fine thanks for taking care of this
News Desk: fwoot fwoot
