Competition for "Hannity and Colmes" in Joke Shout Show Division

Broadcasting and Cable has a squib on Comedy Central's "Crossballs," which sets out to mock television shout shows. This should prove difficult for the venture's producers, as they clearly have not actually seen one -- these things, after all, do a perfectly good job of mocking themselves. For instance, one set-up for "Crossballs" has a comedian posing as a psychologist ask right-to-bear-arms advocate James Marsh "'whether his need for guns was tied to 'sexual issues.' Still reeling, Marsh was then asked: 'When was your first homoerotic experience?'"


I think I saw Paul Begala ask that question last night. In any case, the venture already has its critics, including one would-be guest who wised up to the hoax just in time. On her his blog, she he [Sorry, Lauren. But, geez, Lauren. . . ] now warns fellow experts:

[U]nless you get your kicks from being humiliated before an audience of millions, this is one show you definitely don't want to be thinking back on years from now.
But speak for yourself! America loves humiliation, and we love to be humiliated. In fact, this whole scenario sounds sort of familiar. . . Experts drawn into giving misleading testimony? Bait and switch tactics used to secure agreement to ultimately misguided ventures? You didn't speak in front of the U.N. by any chance, did you?

'Miga and Carlos' by Wonkette Operative 'Chica'

It's Father's Day, which means it's time for Yr Dok Zoom and his son to go to brunch and check out the downtown Boise Father's Day Car Show so we can ooh and ah over the very same Corvettes 'n' Mustangs 'n' lovingly-restored classic cars that are there every year, and I will probably once again point at the '68 Beetle converted to run on electricity and say, "Oh look, a Voltswagen!" Traditions matter. (Kid Zoom is 22, so I may also/instead meet him for cocktails later like grown up human people.)

Don't worry about any deep thoughts on the Meaning of Fatherhood here -- we're just going to enjoy the goofy side of dadding, which as far as I'm concerned is the best thing I've done with my time. Especially since my role model for parenting was the unnamed Dad from "Calvin and Hobbes."

As any fool knows, ice rises to the top of liquids because it's cold, and just wants to be closer to the sun so it can warm up. It's all in the book you get when you become a father.
