  2. Why let the truth (or any basic research) get in the way of a good story - they only stop running things with an injuction or when the average Joe would be able to see through the story. TT and ACA are not really news/current affairs, they are pure entertainment.

  7. Karl Quinn is not without fault himself.

    "Doozy" should read "Deusy".

    Still it's good someone highlighted how pathetic these current affair shows are.

  8. Either you're making some obscure joke that I've missed completely, or you're commenting on the spelling used. If it's the latter, then "had a doozy" is correctly spelled. The spelling is not "deusy" - well not in this universe anyway.

  12. The origin of the term is disputed. Regardless of the origin, the term is still spelled "doozy" in any reputable dictionary. So the author of the article is using the accepted spelling.

    This is Wikipedia's entry on it by the way:

  15. I thought they were someone who studied peoples backsides.

    Maybe that's an endomologist.
