Excuse me, what?
or things uttered today on and off the air 

Okay, so this morning the female anchor turned to the weather man and said:

"Do you have time for a quickie?"

Guffaw or desperate ratings ploy?

One more thing. We have a director, with whom I enjoy working, who has this habit of calling the CGs, you know the names of reporters and locators for video packages thusly:

"Insert David.." 

Plus he has a delivery similar to Ben Stein in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, you know--"Bueller... Bueller..." 

Anywho, when the Dark Lord, Dick Cheney was VP we all secretly hoped he would call, "Insert Dick". Sadly he never made that call. I'm thinking his subconscious put the brakes on that one. He did, however, come close one morning with "Insert Johnson.."

he he he he  Yeah, we're ten.
