The Morning Line: Riffys to Ring in the New Year
When "Brewster Rockit" recently spoofed current fiscal woes, some 'Riffs commenters (most notably "oceanchild") said they thought it was the best commentary on the economy they had seen. Anywhere.
Well, similarly, this week's "Rockit" deserves the Riffy for getting major comic mileage out of the exit of 2008, as Father Time comes in for much abuse. Every day builds amusingly on the last. Thanks, Brewster, for the year's last chance to vent.
Also earning a Riffy this week is "Sally Forth," for its bringing back Aria the Office Quasi-Crush. I don't know which is richer: Seeing Sally actually getting a little worked up (instead of so wryly lackadaisal), or Ted squirming like a toad.
And speaking of: The commenter "yellojkt" wins a Riffy this week for correctly predicting in September (among the handful of scenarios offered on yellojkt's site) that this whole affair, as it were, could end up with a big finish at a Christmas party. (If yellojkt's prescience continues, perhaps next is a quick game of "Hide the Meatloaf.")
