What Altar Boyz had to do to survive the recession.

We had a little fun yesterday when we sent this out on the wires:

Ken Davenport and Robyn Goodman sadly announce that the roles of Juan, the Latin heartthrob, and
Abraham, the only Jewish member of the Christian Boy Band, will be
combined into one role to save money during these tough economic times.  Ken Davenport and Robyn Goodman explain “by having a Sephardic Jew we get the best of both worlds for one salary. We have offered the role to Hank Azaria, the most famous Sephardic Jew we could find.”

And guess what . . . it got picked up!

But you know what our favorite response was?

The New York Times called about it.  They thought it was real.

And that is no April Fool’s.
