The Oscars

JyllandsPosten, the largest Danish newspapers couldn’t think of anything to write about the oscars, so they decided to quote Dave Barry from the Miami Herald instead.

Curiously, their translation went wrong. “Jokes involving Enron” became “Jokes about the producer of the show”. Strange. I thought Ziskin was producing the Oscar show this year. The staff at JyllandsPosten have heard of Enron, the failed energy company, haven’t they?

Oh, well. Happy Oscars!

Enron I don't get the joke. Why would a Danish journalist know anything about Enron?
