We at The Media Show got wind of some dodgy claims by McCormick Spices extolling the supposed health benefits of that pinch of dried plant matter with which you might flavor your food. Weena fights hyperbole with Youtube Poop.

A Media Show quickie: my compatriots and I take on the phenomenon of “stocking.” For those unfamiliar it’s the practice of re-enacting your favorite overused stock photo cliches, like the cool kids over at Stocking Is the New Planking.
It’s a good thing our puppets always keep a few extra wigs stashed about the place for just such an occasion.
These logos for fictional trendy Web 2.0 sites were made for the latest episode of The Media Show. The show called for a bunch of silly but real-sounding website names which were generated in the manner in which we write many of the show’s greatest jokes; blurting increasingly random things back and forth at each other on filming day until we’ve all hopelessly dissolved into fits of convulsive giggling. I then whipped up suitably shiny icons to match.
“Toop” is pronounced “taupe” because of course it is.
The Media Show - “TV Tropes”
The Media Show is a snarkily insightful puppet-based media literacy show for which I am a writer, crewmember, and occasional performer. This episode, wherein the characters discover TV Tropes intruding upon their lives in various upsetting ways, was the first script I turned in for the show. I also performed the fake Intern and the Monster of the Week.
