Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Saturday, December 04, 2021

Looks like it’s time for me to assume that fact-checking role that bloggers are supposed to play in this new media frontier.

Comedy Central is promoting Last Laugh ‘04, a bloc of standup comic programming to be broadcast Sunday, December 12th. It’s running this television commercial for it.

The promo uses self-sarcastic tags like “Britney-marrying”, “pimp-riding”, and “Swift Boating” to describe the show. Both a voiceover and stylized text display these tags.

Only a few seconds into the promo, the very first tag is announced, and spelled out: “Breast-Bearing”.

Now, this is Comedy Central, and I’m sure the bizarre concept of “bearing” breasts (particularly of the female variety) would be good for a chuckle. However, I think the term they were going for was “breast-baring“.

I wonder if Comedy Central has any job openings for proofers…
