Videogum’s mascot, Birdie, got a tiny shout-out on The Daily Show last night (5:45 mark). Blink and you might miss it, so, you know, just don’t blink. Oh, and follow her on Twitter.
Birdie should replace Regis!
Birdie to plug the hole in the ocean!
But let’s hope it’s nothing like this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6lD_hDSWUk
GOOD GOD IN HEAVEN, WHY IS THIS NOT BREAKING NEWS?!

Congrats Birdie, now go bark at Olivia Munn and tell her how useless she is
I rather enjoyed looking at her just now.
Just now? I’ve been enjoying that for years!
But that haircut is new, and adorable!
I agree, nice haircut. But just being pretty on a comedy show has no comedic value.
Seconded. Motion denied, Ian.
Come on, if a pretty woman isn’t funny, that’s okay, we can’t all be funny, but when she is actively unfunny, that’s an issue, more so if she is on a comedy program and delivers her lines like that kid in a high school improv group who is terrible but I mean he’s everyone’s friend so you can’t just kick him out so you hope that someone else will tell him he’s not funny, or that one day he will demonstrate some skill or talent or new thing he wants to pursue so you all jump on it and encourage him to do that, without ever mentioning that he’s bad at comedy, unless of course he goes onto success in his new pursuit, then you joke about how relieved you all were that he quit the improv group.
Pfft, Olivia Munn’s job at the Daily Show is just a self-aware joke on how Fox News uses beautiful-looking women with no talent. They know what they are doing.
I think they’re still finding their groove with Olivia. I think she’s definitely gotten better. I really did not care for Wyatt when he first started on the show, but now he’s grown to be one of my favs.
I had to watch that twice. Not because I missed it, I’m just very thorough.
Canadians: Go to http://dailyshow.thecomedynetwork.ca/ and look for the 6:10 mark in the video.
Yeah, Gabe, how could you forget to convert that to metric time for the Canadian monsters?!
In watching that whole clip, I had a question about Mitch McConnell: does he look more like a cartoon owl or a cartoon turtle?
I keep flip-flopping.
1 vote for owl.
Second the owl vote. He’s not turtle-y enough for the Turtle Club.
Ah one, twoooo, three
I was too late.
Ooh, that’s tough. I immediately thought ‘TURTLE!’ but then immediately saw an owl as well. I think that’s mostly in the glasses though, and he’s definitely got a turtle mouth. I can see him chomping on a big piece of lettuce, so I vote TURTLE.
I’m on team turtle as well.
1 more vote for turtle
“Mister Minority Leader, how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?”
“Tootsie Pop” being the minority leader’s pet name for Sarah Palin, but she’s really more fond of the Whip.
I’ll show myself out.
He looks like whichever one has the scariest teeth.
Let’s see- Owls have beaks. Turtles…? Have beaks. Waitaminute! You knew that, didn’t you? And I bought it hook line and sinker. Well played, ElectricKoala.
Turtles have beaks? I thought that was just in Mario!
Technically, those are koopa troopas. They are turtle-LIKE. #deadpanstraightforwardanswergum
every time i see this gif i realize i need a green dress and a yellow cardigan. thank you, gif.
Birdie got in before Sarah Palin. Pretty sure the Queen of Twitter just get dethroned.
I’m not a witch, I’m a dog #teapartybirdie
Time to sit back and let the residuals roll in….
CBS has already ordered a pilot.
I totally got Neko Case to follow Birdie, but then I think she took offense to the War on Cats. Can’t please everyone, I guess.
It’s Benji meets Murphy Brown, but updated with a Arrested Development twist.
Birdie is a single mom trying to raise a litter while developing a chain of no-kill shelters, but her owner keeps throwing comical roadblocks in her way with hilarious results and TWEETS!
I have to call a timeout cause I don’t get it. Is the joke that Birdie looks like Olivia Munn? Is there a Joke, cause all I picked up on from this thread are turtles and owls. (and now I am wondering how do you puncuate a sentence that starts with a question and ends with a statement?)
Timeout over, resume playing. Is it normal to be jealous of a puppy? Cause I have a friend who knows somebody who is jealous of an adorable puppy.
Wait, does this mean Jon Stewart is a Monster…?
No doubt someone, or multiple people, on the staff are monsters.
Yes. Show yourself!
Totally thought that would be a Doctor Who reference, not a link to Visine. So here:
I swear this whole time I thought birdie was a he. I think it’s because in her twitter avatar, “her” harness always looks like a necktie. And everyone knows girl dogs don’t wear neckties.
