Quote of the Day - January 27, 2006

As grouchy as Cottle is all day long, it's fairly hilarious how vehemently he still has time to hate Gaius. Like, even though he's grouchy as possible today, because he loves Laura just like everybody else, he's still going to dig a little deeper so he can hate Gaius that much more.

There Can Be Only One

For those of my readers who don't also read Jody's blog, you need to see this flash video. Good guys, bad guys, and explosions as far as the eye can see. Blood, violence, and Abe Lincoln with an AK-47 and a machete. It's the ultimate showdown. It took me next to no time to load, so there is a slight possibility that even those with dial-up might be able to watch it. You never know.

Disney Buys Pixar

In another move that is undoubtly connected to it's bid to take over the world, Disney has bought Pixar for a reported $7.4 billion. Why so little? Rumor has it that Steve Jobs will not only join Disney's board of directors, but Disney will also provide him with an animatronic body, bringing him one step closer to true immortality.

Race to the Bottom: WB and UPN Join Forces

In an attempt to “suck less”, the television networks WB and UPN will be combining to form a new network, CW. “C” stand for “CBS”, which owns UPN, while “W” stands for Warner Brothers. They decided against using three letters like the other networks because “it might raise expectations too much,” according to one executive. “Small steps, people. Small steps.”

“We’re hoping to have at least one or two shows with decent ratings between the two of us,” CBS CEO Les Moonves said of the merger. “It’s been very hard for both networks to compete. Maybe if we combine and spread our shows out over seven nights, someone, somewhere, will actually watch.” Quality is, of course, a concern. "If it gets in the way of good ratings, it has to go."

“You know what this means, don’t you?” said Cindy Morris, an avid television viewer and fan fiction writer. “A Smallville/Veronica Mars crossover is finally possibly. Chloe and Veronica are so long lost twins!” Other crossover possibilities created by the merger include Beauty and the Geek with America’s Next Top Model and WWE Smackdown with 7th Heaven.

This news is true, the details are not. Quotes attributed to actual people were not said. Quotes attributed to fictional people likely reflect the attitudes of actual people, or computers pretending to be actual people on the Internet. Les Moonves is not fictional, though he may still be a computer.
