yeah, whats with that?
it took these fools a couple of years to get it right. theyve been saying stuff like "now get ready for the pokey-mans!", plus all the other common mistakes. these people are supposesd to be role models for young people. they didnt even try to hide it, they were pretty much saying "we are retards who dont know anything about cartoons". i thought they actually watched the cartoons, now that dream has been shattered. its all so fake.

No shit! Damn that pisses me off. So what are these like program jockeys for a local TV station? On YTV we have some of those that are pretty good. One girl who's doing now actually is in one of the shows that plays on the channel. Still I don't think they actually watch the shows but they do get the names right and stuff. There's moderate effort put into it and stuff.

The worst is when it's like a Pokémon commercial or something. I mean someone on hand at the set should know how to pronounce that shit. It's just ridiculous.

...but it's a psychosamatic thing I swear it!

Anywho, who do you meen Chopper, The saturday chick or
"miss Sugar" ...she's mini-moon but you can't meen her cause you (big mr. Sailor V himself) should be well versed in all things Moon... I know the saturday hostest is big into Transformers...or at least she acts that way, last week she was into a big moral delema whether or not to like Ba for break'n out of Terantulas's mind link or not.. she didn't think blackarachnia was a good roll model for girls... (i think becoming an asian cyberspider ninja with gold hooters and a face crotch is the career past for all young girls to look into but that's just me... sailor suits are fine too btw.

ahem, but yeah it's the "i'm reading from a card or teleprompter" people that need fire'n... hell I'd love to talk to kids between shows... here's a sample:

"Hi kids, wasn't he-man cool? I got a whole bunch of the 'classic' figures in my basement and i'll be you hook up"

...didn't need a cue card.

Destron *will be a host on ytv for the relaunch of Poke'mon in 2020* "wow, wasn't chucapee cool see him shock team missile"

Well yeah I meant Sugar but as nobbus is an Aussie I didn't feel the need to elaborate. I should have considered the Canadian content of the board.

The Saturday morning girl sort of bugs me with her chair thing and the wall climbing and shit. What-eva! Anyway still since she comes on between commercial breaks and stuff she still comments on the shows and stuff and gets the pronounciation pretty well.

Anyway you get a load of the new Zone host Carlos? I don't think this guy is that good. Sugar's all making a joke about "do you like cars" 'cause his name is CARlos and he just didn't get it at all. Well I'll give him a bit of time I guess.

it's kinda funny too, because "pokemon" was originally called "pocket monsters" in japan, and the words "poke" and "mon" are short for "pocket" and "monsters." They are english words. And those guys cant say "pokemon"? well, they need some serious help then.

I always wondered why they didn't just call it Pocket Monsters over here but I guess "Pokémon" was more marketable.

I agree with that, aDam.

and 'yu gi oh' (or whatever its called) should definitely have had its name changed.
