I was going to lay off -- I swear.
I figured I'd milked the "CNNfan" meme for all it was worth and therefore it was time to put it to bed and move on before the whole thing got stale.
Then came this comment, left at my friend and fellow ex-CNNer Jacki Schechner's site:
"A CNNfan Christmas Wish
CNNfans love CNN Internet Reporter Jacki
But Jacki Schechner's gone from CNN TV
Sadly as far as we, CNNfans can see.
We don't know just who to blame for this Catastrophe !
But our one CNNfan wish on Christmas Eve is to watch Jacki, under the lights of our Christmas Tree, right on CNN TV."
Yeah -- feel free to take a minute to let that sink in as you sit there with your mouth hanging open.
And Jacki, honey -- if you catch even the slightest whiff of chloroform, run like hell.
