And that's all the news we could fit into 30 minutes minus the laxative and denture-adhesive commercials, America.

Now it's time to watch Simpsons reruns, America.

This is Katie Couric, saying, "This is Katie Couric."

This blog is sure you can do better.

UPDATE: I just read the comments, and I just want to say: Whoa. In a good way. Mostly.

That's 'just' up there, just so ya know.

Good night from the whitest teeth in the cosmos.

"And then there's the whole penis thing. Good night."

Ice cream on your sunburn? That's gonna be sticky.

Brainy, I feel your pain about Arrested Development.

You've got to say, 'I'm a HUMAN BEING, Goddamnit! My life has VALUE!' So I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, 'I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!'

snork @ pogo

"Yo DJ Z take me out! Full Effect!"

"Word to your mother"

"See if you can guess what I am now. I'm a zit - get it?"

Amen Brainy and Betsi.

"I don't care if you ARE mad as hell. You'll take it and like it!"

This is Katie Couric saying where's my paycheck?


(I'm not callin' ya, Buddy.....I'm just stink-faced here in Bermuda and that was the sound that just came out!)

I miss you guys!! I am SO burnt - just came to get some ice cream to roll around in.

Hey - they have a special drink on the boat called the "Helmut of Beer" They fill a frikkin football helmut with beer for 19.99! (hic) Hooray for our team!! (Whoever they are!)

Esther - *High five* Yeah, I honsetly didn't see your post before hand. Good thinkin'.

That's the news. This is Hillary Clinton, wishing you a good night.

A hearty *SNORK* and "Well Done!" to all!

Still straining for my brilliant flash.

"This is Katie signing off and kiss my @ss dan!!"

I'm Katie Couric, and I don't have a clue.

"Another day, another $72,115."

I think Punkin has had just a few.
Hurry back!!

Thanks for tuning in and stuff. BUH-bye.

Well, at least we can say, it went out before it ever jumped the shark.

I once ran into the kid who plays George Michael in the Olive Garden. I told him I loved his show and he thanked me.
Tony Hale (plays Buster) came and spoke to my class a couple of years ago. He is a really cool guy (and definitely not anything like his character). He's in a movie starring Will Ferrell, Stranger Than Fiction, that comes out this fall. I saw a pre-screen a few months ago and loved it.

"This is Katie Couric and I did Matt Lauer on Oprah's couch"

Brainy - that is even better!!
Great minds...

Jeff - *applause* for the Animal House sign-off.

"Before I sign off, just let me say...Dave Barry For President! Now get out of here, you knuckleheads!"

"I'm Katie Couric. Thanks for watching The Dating Game. Okay everybody, you ready to blow the big kiss? *MMMMWWWWAAAAHHHH!*

Aw, poor Punkin. To come join us bloggers when you're seeing double -- that's dedication!

"This is Katie Couric.... digging down deep ..... to get to the bottom....to stay on top."

Heeeyyy Punkin' they have that much ice cream?

"Face it Punkin, you threw up on Dean Wormer."

This is Katie Couric saying... Hey! GET OUT OF MY DRSSING ROOM.

"I'm cleaning my oven as we speak."

Thank you Brainy!
I can't believe it took that long for somebody to say it...

"I'm Katie Couric, and I swear I am not making this up."
