WGA Demands: An end to the lying... j/k

It seems the WGA Strike is a goldmine for print publications as TV and screenwriters take to writing residual-free articles to express their frustration at not getting residuals. Former Simpsons and Looney Tunes writer Larry Doyle made several demands in The New Yorker:
OUR DEMANDS: An end to the lying. Just kidding. We recognize that, without lying, Management would be unable to exhale and would thus perish.

A renunciation of droit du seigneur. As it stands, studio executives, from chairman down to associate producer, have the right to deflower us on our wedding night, or any other night or time of day of their choosing. We believe that this change can be written into our contracts without affecting a similar agreement they have with the Screen Actors Guild.
