CBS, Not Content With Egg On Face

Drudge has the following headline with no link yet:

CBS PLANS LOGO ON EGGS; FALL PROMO PUSH... DEVELOPING...

Laser imprints of its trademark eye insignia on 35 million eggs in September and October...

I'm not sure who thought this one up...

If you consider the past performance of the their news division, does handing out 35 million eggs with the CBS logo on it really seem like such a good idea?

I just glad I'm not a window washer at the CBS News building.

Now come on! They are just bowing to the reality of the situation (they are part of the "reality based community", aren't they?). I mean, they've had so much egg on their faces of late, they have just decided to appropriate it for their advertising campaign. Think of the possibilities!


"Nobody lays an egg like SeeBS"

"Eggstra, Eggstra, be sure to watch and egg Katie on!"

"You can't speak truth to power without breaking a few eggs!"

"This is Eggscatly what cutting edge news reporting is all about."

"This week, a 60 Minutes Eggstra on document forgery."

We should all egg them on!

Perhaps they saw the story the other day about the egg in Kazakhstan with "Allah" supposedly on it written in arabic. If it's good enough for Allah, why not CBS?

NBC had the peacock, decades later CBS responds with the egg. Not difficult to answer the age old question of which came first, now, is it?
