Mad Men with party horns in lieu of cigarettes

To celebrate the Great American Smokeout, the Ellen DeGeneres Show replaced cigarettes in Mad Men with party horns.

  1. This is clever. Ellen is always good clean fun and it's always fascinating to detect the delightful influence of Bob Newhart in her work (her stand-up delivery is dotted with Newhartisms) - also it's interesting to follow the further "mainstreamism" of Boing Boing. Ellen Degeneres is one of several talk show hosts (Fallon and Kimmel among them - Jay Leno, not so much) at the cutting edge of mainstream, middle-America comedy. I'm wondering if and when Boing Boing will fully embrace the glories that are Honey Boo Boo and the Kardashians (one can only hope) - luckily you've got the Rob Ford saga nailed...a mainstream lovefest that tops them all.

    PS - what would have been less funny but more technologically current, would have been for ELLEN to replace the "Mad Men" cancer sticks with e-cigarettes. Eh, probably not funny at all...

    I really hope this is sarcasm. It has to be.

  3. except boingboing followed Rob Ford long before he was mainstream.

  4. Sarcasm is a weak man's game - subtle mockery is where it's at!

  5. Noise pollution too, eh? All the more reason to make them go outside.

    I kid, I kid.
