Samson & Delilah, The 2005 Version or Business as Usual

Thanks for sharing this!

Here’s a news flash. There’s a new twosome in town.

His name is The Samson. Hers is Delil…ahhhh.

And they both have television shows called “The Neophyte.”

The pair have much in common besides their shows. Each has fought many battles, won great victories and suffered stunning losses.

The Samson arises every day to fend off his enemies and make millions of dollars. His strength is legendary and his foes lust after the secret of his incredible power.

Delil…ahhhh is a woman with a strong personality, though she’s learned to temper ruthlessness with good manners. Under her tutelage of style and charm, her empire has grown to lofty proportions.

They could be worthy opponents for the night time audience. But lately the question that has run rampant in their inner circle is—are they rivals or lovers?

Put two such big egos on almost the same stage and it’s hard to say. Those in the know report she was seen straightening his tie while attempting to sweet talk him into telling her the secret of his great strength.

Since The Samson’s no dummy, he just smiled and told her his hair was famous around the world. Her answer—you have me there —shows she missed a good clue.

Stay tuned to see if Delil…ahhhhh’s show wins the ratings.

Or if The Samson has a hit that pulls the house down.
