And Then, Up Next...

That’s Christmas over so that must be New Year next. Quick!! Get to the shops right now!! Everything will be closed for a day again!! Look!! A tin of Spam!! Grab it!!

Me? It was Christmas and, throughout the house, not a paintbrush stirred so I ate and sat glued to the non-stop offerings of wondrous entertainment on TV. Honestly, did anybody run into anything  worthy of watching? Really? I mean, really?

By-the-by, I typed all that just so I could add the shaky headed doggy. Is that sad or wot. Hope he still nods when this is posted; it being one of they Gif thingies an’ all.

Queue another prophetic toon from then. He sings of 57 channels and today we have I don’t know how many and the situation remains the same.


Quote;  Dave Barry.

“Another possible source of guidance for teenagers is television, but television's message has always been that the need for truth, wisdom and world peace pales by comparison with the need for a toothpaste that offers whiter teeth and fresher breath.

            Rod Serling.

"It is difficult to produce a television documentary that is both incisive and probing when every twelve minutes one is interrupted by twelve dancing rabbits singing about toilet paper."
