WSAZ must have Cialis...

...cause they've popped two boners in two days.

Yesterday, during one of their time-killing segments for slow news days, Justin Ryan demonstrated how to make a rather tasty-looking Brussels sprouts recipe. After they cut back to Ryan at the desk with Carrie Cline and Bill Murray, Cline indicated that she had often eaten sprouts that were too soggy. Ryan, without thinking, accused her mama of making shitty Brussels sprouts. Cline, a southerner, probably didn't appreciate Ryan, a New York City native, talkin' smack on her mom's cooking. Cline remained diplomatic, but you could tell that she was mildly pissed/annoyed. Poor Bill Murray, stuck in the middle, looked like he wished that he could Quantum Leap right outta Dodge.

As for Today's cock-up, let me preface by going back in time a couple of weeks. During another one of WSAZ's annoying time killers, the lame viewer mail segment, Tim Irr and Penny Moss borderline mocked a militant vegetarian who complained about a turkey dinner being prepared during a 6 PM segment. While making fun of a viewer's deeply-held belief wasn't Moss or Irr's most professional moment, I agreed that the segment was not out of line and, in fact, made me want a turkey sam'mich.

Well, at exactly 6:01, even this avowed carnivore 'bout tossed his cookies---actually, it was a homemade Skyline cheese coney (with a Nathan's Famous skinless frank)---over a different dead animal segment. Apparently someone hit a bear on Paint Creek and they decided to send a news crew out to shoot some footage. Well, right as I took my second bite, there was a close-up of the dead bear's head while still pinned under the truck.

To WSAZ's production crew and news director, remember this rule of thumb: dead turkeys during dinner can be delish, while dead bears, um, aren't.

(Maybe this was just the blog gods extracting revenge on ...ASAT for this post.)

The vegeterian viewer mail was one of the funniest 45 seconds I've ever seen on local news. The cut back to a still laughing Penny Moss was side splitting.

As our good friend Ted Nugent says, "You can't grill it until you kill it." :)

This type of blogs is very recreational, call attention because of them you always learn something useful and not as in other blogs that are a waste of time and learn nothing.Congratulations for this blog and hopefully they are more like this, I regret to say that I've only found the Generic Viagra and this with the material of common interest!

Besoins d'avis s'il vous plaît! Mon mari souffre de problèmes érectiles depuis plusieurs années, ayant essaye plusieurs thérapies non médicamenteuses, il nous a été conseiller d'Acheter Cialis en pharmacie en ligne garantissant que mon mari pourra avoir des érections assez durs et fermes 15 minutes après avoir avaler le médicament, qui pourront durer plus de 5 heures. Est-ce possible?
