vh1 is running some animation thing called VH1 Illustrated. In one segment, they parody the show “Blind Date.” In their parody, the “text blip” – the pop-up thought balloons – quits. He’s revealed to be a thought balloon with a fedora and a stogie. He walks off the set, but his contract is enforced, so he returns to the date, in progress, and begins to drink alcohol and vomit on their plates. It wasn’t that hilarious, but I did enjoy the post-modern aspect of it.
