You’re on notice

Alt text

Stephen Colbert tells things that have been misbehaving that they are “On Notice.” They’re not dead to him yet, but he’s keeping his eye on them, and they should know it. It’s like having two strikes against you.

Here is my “On Notice” list. It’s not comprehensive, but it’s a good start.

I have harnessed the power of the Internet to alter photos taken from television!

    What’s your problem with Florida Eric? It’s the moistest state after all!

    Whee! That was fun!

  3. Momma Snider Says:

    I hate the misspelling of the word “yeah” too. And I never was crazy about teenage girls, even when I was one. Except for my own daughters, of course.

    Can this be? Someone else who doesn’t like Lost? Please tell me it’s true. I thought I was alone out here.

    If you, like seemingly everyone else, are annoyed by all the unanswered questions in “Lost,” well, you’re watching the wrong show. (And Dane Cook sucks.)

  7. Carrie Says:

    I don’t like lost either. I don’t like it so much that I don’t even want to capitalize it or put quotes around it or anything. I also don’t like Survivor. They’re the same thing to me. Except on Survivor, the fat people lose weight.

    I was inspired to make my own:

    Funny. Very funny.

    Ya? Never seen that one.

    However, when I was about nine years old, I was made to read something written by one of the other kids. When I came to the word, “yea,” recognizing it from the Bible, I pronounced it biblically, more or less like “Yay,” except more ominous-sounding.

    You guessed it. It was supposed to be “yeah,” and everybody laughed at me. Wasn’t my fault the other kid couldn’t spell! Or read the Bible.

    Um, on first reading I thought it said “urine-scented candles.” And I wasted a bunch of time wondering who would be insane enough to make such a thing, and how you knew about it.

    […] Eric D. Snider pointed out this graphic on his blog. “On notice” means you’re not completely banished, but you have been behaving in such a way that I’m keeping my eye on you. You better watch yourself. To the left is mine. You can create your own here. […]

    Panhandlers with other scents are ok?

    And I agree with you about “Lost”– complicated and convoluted does not always equal clever.

  13. Ian Says:

    We stopped watching “Lost” about five episodes into the second season… Because we got sick and tired of waiting for something to finally HAPPEN.

  14. Deirdre Says:

    I just saw the word, “Ya,” in a newsgroup post. There’s a term for that phenomenon, but I have no idea what it is.

  15. John Doe Says:

    I saw the first season of Lost. By the last 7 eps, I skipped all the flashbacks (friend of mine had DVD’s). I didn’t lose anything. While it was interesting for the first half, I later realized “Hey, these mysteries will never live up to the hype set for them.” So I’ve ignored the series but kept slightly informed. Thus far, no one seems very impressed with it, so I feel I made the right choice. Eric still has hope for it since it’s on notice, not dead.
