The Spam Thread!
Still unable to bring Helen back from the dead.

I guess some things can only happen once...

Am I the only one who has a problem with this toy's name?

#1: B!7*#y. #2: Lemon Meringue aka Madeline. Madeline is not B!7*#y!

If it helps, I felt anger, sadness and shock at the same time when I saw that. My basic response was "*pfft*".

I don't really see how "pfft" fits the emotions you mentioned, David.

I actually sputtered in surprise over the name of the toy. Took me by surprise, that thing.

Then the confusion over the conflicting emotions set in.

Oh, I bought more ponies today. Two Oopsie Bears (Applejack and Rainbow Dash) and three I've never heard of: Dewdrop Dazzle, Lulu Luck and Cupcake.

Cupcake was a pony from the 1980s.

By the way, "Berry Beachy Lemon Meringue" reminds me of "secret but fun" from those new commercials for the Pound Puppies remake. The narrator says the pound puppies have a secret hideout, to which a sheepdog interjects with saying, "Secret but fun!" Just add in an extra letter t. . .

I wouldn't be surprised to learn one newly hired advertiser at Hasbro is being silly for the sake of amusing adults, though I don't know what I think of it.

Noted. Although I should note that it was in G4 packaging. Not sure what to make of it.

As for the latter, I'm surprised that many parents have not objected to the toy's name.

Had to snuff out a spammer that crept in the forums.

Viacom finally launches Nick Jr as a separate channel in Asia.

But it's on TM's IPTV platform over here. How will I cope when they show ads for programming on the main channel, which is only available through Astro thanks to Astro's dirty monopoly tactics? We'll find out when that happens.

Hopefully it doesn't involve reactivating my Astro decoder, and getting a HDMI switch and a RCA switch.

But the big Q is: Does it has Humf? The big A: No, according to Singapore's TV guide.

They could've done better to bring in Boomerang and KidsCo instead.

<off topic ramble>Screw it, I'll just go pound some puppies. I hear they have secret but fun!</off topic ramble>

Bootnote: The lesser question would be how Dora fanbois will react when the Nick Jr slot is pulled from the main channel, which I reckon will happen very soon. Remember, this service is not available to 90% of the country. I see a s#!tstorm in Astro's future...
