In the wake of Al-Jazeera’s purchase of Current TV, Joy Behar: Say Anything! released this new publicity shot of Joy welcoming guest Ellen DeGeneres to the show.
“Overused Too Often”
CNN interviewed John Shibley (above), a creator of Lake Superior State University’s list of annoying words and expressions that simply must go.
Martin Savidge: “So let’s talk about … how this list-compiling all began.”
Shibley: “[We] discussed how many words and phrases are overused too often.”
My proposed term to dump: “disgruntled employee”
We hear this whenever some wackdoodle returns to the office and blows away former co-workers. But these people are not “disgruntled,” which to my mind describes a cubicle-dweller who is unhappy with the decaf in the breakroom, not some lunatic with an Uzi.
Sometimes I weep for humanity. This poll makes me very sad. Doesn’t anyone believe in young love, anymore?

Jimmy Kimmel takes on Letterman and Leno this week. I handicap the race:
Letterman — the best
Kimmel — too damn many commercials. I once timed an ad break during his show and it lasted nearly nine minutes. Jimmy, your guests had better be The Beatles — including the dead ones — if I am going to sit through that many ads.
Leno — every year, this guy grows more physically repulsive, and I simply cannot stand to look at him
Speaking of physical appearance … hell must have frozen over, because voters sent an attractive politician to Congress. Thanks, Hawaii, for giving us Tulsi Gabbard (below).
“I go to the gas station such a small amount, that I forget how to put gas in my car.” — Volt owner Elissa, above.
