The Blogger-in-Chief was hesitant to write on this topic, so it looks like his humble apprentice gets the leftover scraps.
We waited in great anticipation through the entire hour-long special to see if she decided to lump a manufacturer–any manufacturer–into her list.
Here was her “list” of “fascinating people”:
Wup dee do. Kinda lame, if you ask us.
A couple questions:
Where are the manufacturers in that list? We only make everything that these “fascinating” people use everyday.
What was Barbara Walters’ criteria?Perhaps these people were chosen because many are considered popular and “cool?” Manufacturers are cool too, ya know. We even make cool stuff. In fact, this blog has a whole section on Cool Stuff Being Made.
When was the last time Barbara Walters went on a plant tour? We think if she went on one, she’d surely find it fascinating.
Loyal readers of this blog (both of you) will recall that when People magazine listed their Hottest Beach Bodies we called for a boycott because not one manufacturer was included in that list.
Somebody should call for a boycott of Barbara Walters.
Oh, and Barbara, 2005 isn’t over yet. There’s still a month to go, by our count. Anytime you want to amend the list, we’ll happily invite ourselves.
