"prominent and influential blogger"

Does TBogg know you've based this sitcom on him?


Why Tbogg? There's more than a few of us pseudos out there, actually.

Lance: Good idea, but flip the gender and make it a loosely fictionalized version of the digby story: a smart woman blogger whom everybody thinks is male. Give her the same silly conservative boss, but add a goofball-but-unconventially-attractive husband/boyfriend.

(For more points, make her a blue-collar. Not like Roseanne, she shouldn't be obnoxious, but blue-collar is good.)

Put it in front of a single camera—because multi-camera sitcoms are a relic—slap together some SitC-style "I'm talking and writing at the same time" bracketing bits, maybe give Patton Oswalt a role as a wacky co-worker who's secretly her greatest blogfriend/blognemesis, and you're gold.

(Anyway, feel free to take credit, but I want points on the back end.)


Demosthenes, take note of Tbogg's tagline on the post-it note in his header. It's not quite the same line, but Lance's phrase reminded me of it.


Sheesh, I should checked out his recent posts. He's thinking of upgrading the line.


Fair enough.

I'm still feeling the digby adaptation more, though. It's got more zazz.
