The Talking Dog

August 27, 2006, 15 Milliseconds of Fame

For people with an incredibly long attention span, you may listen to this week's edition of NPR's "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me", in the second question of the second "Who's Carl this Week?", somewhere around 45 minutes into the program,and you will hear a quote attributed to this blog (derived from this post.) (Thanks to Linkmeister, our man in Honolulu, for the heads up.) I'm sure the show is on hundreds of radio stations across the nation (at least one of which would seem to be in Hawaii), and if it's not... I'm certain to say it is, anyway.

Whether this is the embodiment of Marshall McLuhan's famous prediction (or Andy Warhol's), or one of the numerous precursors of the coming Apocaplypse, or none of the above, I leave to you.


For you diehard TD fans who don't want to suffer through a whole edition, the TD reference may be found at about 3:18 into the "Who's Carl This Time, Round II"

Posted by nuttin betta ta doo at August 27, 2006 8:07 PM an avid, regular listener of WWDTM, I heard the attribution on Saturday morning (when Oregon Public Broadcasting airs it) and nearly burst out loud laughing. First skippy on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart and now TD on NPR. The heck with Daily Kos, and who's ever heard of Atrios anyway...

I didn't realize that they break the show down into segments on the website or I'd have pinpointed it further.

Yeah, just getting around to congratulating you on this one. I heard it in my kitchen (Saturdays at 10) and thought the same as Jack. Woo hoo! Markos who?
