What Unseen Voices Laugh At In The Commercial Break


It was a commercial break on The Price Is Right. They were advertising that show CBS has that’s The View, only on CBS, so given some other name I can’t remember. Their guest star was to be Christopher Meloni. A woman, I trust one of the hosts, says, “Meloni? Me likey!” and is met with raucous laughter from an audience that I have no doubt exists, and that listens to this sort of word play or single-party flirtation or whatever it is exactly, and approves. I stared back at the television, wondering, what has brought things to this?

I’m left to suspect this is how the guy who draws Zippy the Pinhead feels all the time.
