And there you are. Goodnight, everybody!
(Fade to static and poltergeists)
I would’ve faded to Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing. But you’re right, it’s already been done.
One eyed Pirate Cat!
That cat is judging me. I just know it.
Cats judge *everyone*. What makes you so special?
“O! say can you see…”
Doesn’t judging imply interest?
In the land of the blind the one-eyed cat is king!
Couldn’t we have ended with a dog instead? ;-)
There’s a petition up to have Weird Al Yankovic be the halftime performer at next year’s Super Bowl.
That’s not a Cat, that’s a Furry Battle Station!
Paging Chang!=Chang & the OGFC…Chang!=Chang & the OGFC, white courtesy phone…
WHAT(ever) now concludes its broadcasting day….fade to ‘Star-spangled Banner’.
I wonder if kids would ever believe us if we told them there was a time when TV didn’t run 24/7.

When I tell elementary school kids that during tours of the submarine I work on, it takes them a fair bit to swallow it, usually. Though the idea that in WWII, almost no one HAD a TV(or a CD player, or video games, or cell phones, or iPads, and that there were only 3-4 TV stations) seems to also help.ram the point home.
I do like how the Whatever programming day begins with the National Anthem followed by the Farm Report.
Whatever Programming Day sounds like something the new college grads do in the server room. It would take a cat to keep those guys in line. (I am reliably informed that “guy” is now a non-gendered word.)
