Default A Very Sad, Sad Day Indeed

CNN and CTV National News here in Canada took 30 seconds or so of my valuable news time, for which I count on them to bring me the urgent global stories that matter most to me, to inform me with the appropriate grave tone:

The dog from Frasier has died!!!!!!!!!

Ho-ly Mackerel.

OMG..... can you imagine the crushing blow this loss means to celebrity canines worldwide. Lassie is spinning in her grave.....

The world will never be the same. I am just devastated...I tell you.... I don't know how I can go on in this life.

(I guess if you ask no questions about WMD, this certainly counts as a responsible journalistic piece nowadays. USA>>> you are getting sleepy.... very sleepy.....)

You're right. Why should the media waste valuable time on dead dogs when they could be using it productively on Rush Limbaugh's latest pharmaceutical hijinks.

I wonder if there are any lawyers out there who can advise us whether Rush's recent adventure will cause him to be officially labeled a hardened criminal.

Poor Eddie, I guess his body is stiff by now. Oh hey, the two stories are related.

Rush's excuse for not having his name on the ****** label was rather limp in my opinion. Maybe he will get a stiff sentence.

I don't know about you guys, but I would say that if Rush is caught with his pants down one more time, he is going to be a dead dog.

Just further proof that media news coverage is "going to the dogs".

At least the Limbaugh story is "hard" news.

Frazier is on TV right now. Can't concentrate because I keep thinking of Rush, and well you know. I guess it could be worse. It could be Eddie that needs the prescription.

Keith Olbermann of MSNBC on speculation that Rush had a good time in the Dominican Republic:

****** comes in bottles of 30 pills, there were 29 left, so indications are he had A good time.

First he was caught with all that oxycontin. He said it was because his "back" was sore.

Take care,

This is the funniest thread I have read on this site.


Guess Rush didn't get so lucky on his trip to the Dominican Republic ...

Well, he's a "swinger" for about an hour or two. I have scary thoughts about just who would sleep with the guy. Maybe he needs the pills for solitary swinging....

He's no doubt happy the dead mutt's getting more coverage than he is right now....

This, on top of the earth-shattering news that Starr Jones has left "The View" and the lovely Rosie O'Donnell is replacing her. I can't cope.

Oh, the humanity!

We now interrupt our regularly-scheduled programming to bring you 24-hour uninterrupted coverage of this breaking news story......

(Live footage via CNN news helicopter over Interstate 10)

"Star Jones! Star Jones! This is the California Highway Patrol! Stop your white Blazer immediately and surrender to the authorities! You have nowhere to run!"

More developments as they arise.....
