#200 - Comic #200 Intermission New episodes Monday, Wednesday and Friday
Wednesday, January 10, 2007
TODAY'S NEWS: If you have no idea what this comic is about, you've probably never seen shows like "The Bachelor," where TV producers seclude a group of highly-attractive women in a mansion and force them to compete for the affections of a desirable single man. Or "Beauty and the Geek," where TV producers seclude a group a highly-attractive women in a mansion and force them to interact with a group of highly-intelligent guys. Or a particular animated show about two mice... But I'm not going to explain it ALL for you.
