“How’s that story coming along?”

Overheard in the newsroom:

Editor: “How’s that story coming along?”
Reporter: “It’s almost done. I just have to write it.”

No comments? Gee, why not?

Because anybody who's actually worked in a newsroom realizes it's been an old joke for at least 3 decades?

(Without any political overtones, by the way.) It's a work-ethic, deadline-type joke. Something you wouldn't understand.
