This is the crap you end up with when newscasters try to be "contemporary".

Still not as good as the show Larry King did about it: http://youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0

So when can we just shut down TV news for good ?

I agree.

In the recent submit of Fox News youtube celebs, the host takes a blunt dig at CNN. Likewise, all news agencies seem to be embroiled in petty and unprofessional on-air squabbling; and their content has been drastically reduced to infotainment, akin to Extra: replacing celebs with politicians, but keeping the scandal.

They're dinosaurs.

HAHA, they are in on it too. Why else would they play it backwards?

Family Guy... where it all fucking started

FUCKing Family Guy


I was always wondering how this got started. Most memes, before they're driven into the ground, at least started out funny or noteworthy. Rick Astley is pretty run of the mill for cheesy music videos.

It didn't start with family guy. Are you high or something?

It came out of Chan. Somehow duckrolling begat rickrolling, and here we are.

I think a meme has pretty much jumped the shark once it's made it onto network news. Especially the Beeb.
