"What a Revoltin’ Development"

The above was the catchprase of Chester A. Riley, title character of “Life of Riley”, a 1950’s sitcom that almost nobody remembers, even though it ran for 212 episodes, which coincidentally, was exactly four times the number of episodes of “Arrested Development.”

It was that lind of Obsessive-Compulsive trivia (or as Michael Bluth would say, “Don’t call it OC”) that I wisely omitted from “A Rest for Arrested”, my just-web-published article for MSNBC.com about the ill-fated sitcom. For those of you who came here via the link in that article who do not wish to end up in an infinite loop, please scroll down for MetaPuns, the fast food icon who ate my lunch, SUV abuse, ways to reuse a Target bag and my own sitcom catchphrases…
