"Suit Up Part Deux"

For those of you who are Pop Culture Savants like yours truthinessly, the reference in the title of the previous post should have left you smiling, nodding your heads and respecting the Wendell .5% more than before. Yes, I was relating the Gorrila Suit Day holiday to the catchphrase of this year’s most entertainingly obnoxious new sitcom character: “How I Met your Mother’s” Barney, portrayed uproariously by Neil Patrick “Doogie” Harris. One wonderful thing about this lovable stinker is not just that this fictional character has a blog, but that it is perfectly in character for him to have a blog. Which is not so much the case for the other most recent fictional character to get a blog: Chewbacca. But if a ficticious memoir can continue to be a best-seller after Oprah has evisceratd the author on live TV, then there is nothing wrong with fictional TV characters having blogs. Regerttably, it is too late for Buffy the Vampire Slayer to have a LiveJournal, or West Wing’s Leo McGarry to do a poli-blog, and a blog by (“His Name Is…”) Earl would be far beyond the ability of any spellchecking program to make readable. But, hey, don’t they still have a computer down in the hatch on “Lost” island? I think Hurley should get himself a Free Blogspot account (but hey, he could affort to pay for TypePad).
If there’s one thing most TV characters have in common with most Bloggers, is that you’re grateful that you don’t have to meet up with either in real life.
