A simple question about Thanksgiving Day parades

Who was the genius that first decided to let Happy Talk Local News readers do the play-by-play and color commentary for Thanksgiving Day parades? If forced to watch a local news broadcast, I’ll usually choose KHOU, but Greg Hurst and (to a slightly lesser extent) Lisa Foronda are making me question that wisdom. It’s bad enough that they’re both moronic nonstop chatterboxes, but faithfully shilling every corporate float by referring to them as “our friends with MegaCorp” is more than I can take. Here’s a hint, you two: We can all see the logos for ourselves. Tell us which high school marching band or drill team is currently performing, and beyond that just keep it zipped. Thank you.

    Considering that the Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC is nothing more than a three hour shill for Macy’s and NBC, why should it different elsewhere?

    Wow Chuck, a little cranky this morning?

    Within ten minutes, Greg Hurst called Joe Ely “Joe E-lie” and asked Debra Duncan how the lowriders “could do that”.

    NOTHING could be more nerdy and Caucasian than that.

    Thanks for the laugh. But at least both of them voted in the 2004 Dem primary. HA HA! Actually, a lot of people from KHOU did!

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Did you catch that on the Macy’s Parade when there was a tragic accident with one of the balloons they increased the happy talk and ran footage of the float from last year?
