The New Yorker has published an excerpt from the upcoming faux memoir, Let Me Off at the Top!: My Classy Life and Other Musings. The tongue-in-cheek memoir adds another round of hysterical musings and general absurdity to the Ron Burgundy canon. From The New Yorker:
I knew from a very early age that I would be a News Anchorman. I had great hair, for one, which is 70 percent of the job. I also had the pipes. I was blessed with my father’s golden tones and melodious speaking voice. By the time I left Our Lady Queen of Chewbacca High I could read a document out loud from forty feet away without ever stumbling over a word. A photograph from shortly after my graduation shows me looking much the same way I do now. In fact at age eighteen I looked exactly as I do today. Women found me irresistible. They still do find me irresistible. It’s worth mentioning but not so important to the narrative at this moment. I mention stuff like that not for vanity’s sake but because it simply needs to be said.
