ITTY-BITTY RATE AND A BIG LOAN

IN YOUR FACE, YOU GET SPRUNG!

YOUR JOURNALISTIC INSTINCTS KICK

IN AND SAY THAT'S A MORE

INTERESTING STORY.

IT WAS A LIFESTYLE CHOICE.

I DIDN'T KNOW WE HAD TO BE

ACCEPTING OF A VAMPIRE.

COMPLETELY LOST ITS WAY.

THEY BROUGHT INTO THE SEXY

VAMPIRE COVER MODEL IMAGE WHEN

VAMPIRES ARE UNDEAD MONSTERS

DUTY TO PROTECT US FROM.

A JOB THEY USED TO KNOW HOW TO

DO.

>> THESE BOYS MISSED AN

OPPORTUNITY TO NAIL THAT

VAMPIRE.

ANCHORMAN DAN RATHER, WHO IS OLD

SCHOOL SRK READY TO HANDLE THE

UNDEAD AT A MOMENT'S NOTICE.

>> IF I WAS INTERVIEWING HENRY

KISSINGER ABOUT THE SECRET

BOMBINGS IN CAME CAMBODIA AND

DISCOVERED HE WAS A ZOMBIE, I

WOULD HAVE ASKED HIM WHETHER HE

ENJOYED EATING HUMAN BRAINS.

THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN BUT THAT'S

WHAT I WOULD HAVE DONE.

>> Stephen: THAT'S WHAT I

WOULD HAVE TO DO.

IT WAS UP TO ME TO BLOW THE

COFFIN HR *EUD OFF SORTIE AND

SKPHROEZ VAMPIRES FOR WHAT THEY

TRULY ARE.

I TRACKED THE VAMPIRE HERE TO

HIS FOUR BED YOM TUDOR IN

SUBURBAN PHILADELPHIA.

>> MY NAME IS PATRICK ROGERS, I

AM A VAMPIRE.

>> Stephen: THIS IS THE FACE

OF EVIL.

[LAUGHTER]

BRUSHING THE HAIR OF EVIL.

[LAUGHTER]

AND THESE ARE THE THUMBS OF EVIL

TEXTING ON THE BLACKBERRY OF

SATAN.

[LAUGHTER]

WHO KNOWS WHAT ANCIENT AND

UNSPEAKABLE RITUALS HE PERFORMS

ON THIS CURSED GROUND.

[LAUGHTER]

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

BUT DO YOU SLEEP IN A COFFIN?

>> I DON'T NOT SLEEP IN A

COFFIN.

>> Stephen: THEN YOU HAVE

BATS?

>> I DON'T HAVE ANY BATS.

TO FEAST ON OUR TERROR.

>> Stephen: DAN, HELP ME OUT

HERE.

WHAT IS WITH THE TEETH.

>> Stephen: WHAT IS WITH THE

TEETH PATRICK.

THEY ARE POINTY.

I HAVE A PAIR OF ELONGATED

CANINES ON BOTH SIDES BUT I

DON'T DRINK BLOOD.

>> OKAY.

>> Stephen: FINE, NO COFFIN,

NO BATS, NO BLOOD, IS THERE

ANYTHING INTERESTING ABOUT YOU

AT ALL?

>> I HAVE SUCCESSFULLY SUED THE

NATION'S FOURTH LARGE YET BANK.

>> Stephen: WAIT, WHAT?

>> IN WERE IRREGULARITIES WITH

MY MORTGAGE.

AFTER SENDING MANY LETTERS TO WE

WELLS FARGO AND GETTING NO

RESPONSE I SUED THEM AND I WON

THE LAWSUIT.

THEY DIDN'T PAY THE JUDGMENT

ENTERED AGAINST THEM SO I HAD A

SHERIFF'S LEVEE PLACED AGAINST

THEIR DOWNTOWN PHILADELPHIA

OFFICE AND WITHIN TWO DAYS I HAD

A CHECK IN MY HANDS FOR THE

JUDGMENT AMOUNT.

I'M SATISFIED WITH THE

RESOLUTION OF THE SITUATION.
