Next on Fox News: Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods Have Also Made Suspicious, Fist-Related Terrorist Gestures

As Ned Flanders would say, this clip is the answer to a question nobody asked. It would have been the dumbest, emptiest "news" story I've ever seen -- and that's without exaggeration -- but the casual, sickening, baseless insertion of the word "terrorist" drops it to a whole new level. Watch if you dare as Fox News hits an all-time low:

Duckman Seasons 1 & 2 on DVD

Since someone else brought it up -- unpaid, I swear! -- I'll take this moment to plug the impending, long-awaited Duckman DVD set.  I'm excited that this show that I'm so proud of will finally be available to its twisted fans.  

I hope seasons 1 & 2 sell well, since many of my favorite episodes are in seasons 3 & 4.   We had a loyal audience of roughly a million viewers, so I call upon each and every one of you to buy one for you and one for a friend.  (I just accidentally typed "one for a fiend"... and without thinking I cackled like the Crypt Keeper as I corrected it.  Just a little glimpse into what my days are like.)

I will also point out, for the record, that I can engage in this plugola in good conscience, since I don't receive a single shekel for the DVD sales.  Duckman was produced back before animation started to make its way out of the wilderness and into the WGA tent.  

And since I'm obviously not one of the folks doing a commentary track for the DVD's, if you have any questions that I might be able to answer please feel free to post them in the comments, and I'll respond if I can.  Also, if any of the other Duckman veterans -- Howard, are you there? -- read this blog they can chime in, too, and fill in my increasingly spotty memory.
