In the old country, we had a saying: no news is good news. So every day, they would print a newspaper, and it would be completely blank. Except at the top it would say in big black letters, 'NO NEWS'.

Whenever I recall this quote, I think of Danial Pinkwater's Borgel, but it doesn't seem to be from that book. Perhaps the Chicken Man said it at one point? Someone please tell me! UPDATE in 2020: Turns out it's from The Big Kerplop by Bertrand R. Brinley.
