nbc.com's hatred of Canadians.
Goes both ways buddy. How will I ever live without George Stroumboulopoulos?

I find him insanely boring as an interviewer.
-Le Chiffre: You changed your shirt, Mr Bond. I hope our little game isn't causing you to perspire.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

Typos on big news-pages, in headlines especially. It takes away so much credibility.

The battery life my cell phone wastes in repeatedly telling my that my battery life is low.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Oh, man, I hate that too.  It makes it look like amateur hour.  The Atlanta paper has gotten so bad about that.  I guess that's what happens when you lay off most of your staff.

Also:  when they let something go out on the web with a headline that reads something like "We need a headline here" or a photo caption that says "caption goes here".  And don't notice for hours.

But what would Leno do without typos?

Not have high ratings, and thus not pose a threat to Conan's Tonight Show. Oh well...

Conan, with all his low brow material, doesn't play to dumb people. That's because even his low brow humour comes through in absurdity, and a lot of people simply do not understand absurdity.

Oh, so funny "headlines" that are written by other people and not Leno and dumb people on the street that say funnythings that Jay Leno doesn't say?
