Skills

While they're tutoring weatherguesser Rusty Lord about vocabulary, sending Jimmy and Maladroit to speech therapy, and trying to get the Wizard to give J-Pa a brain, the geniuses who run Channel Sux should also pull aside whoever wrote the copy for the "YouCast" promo.

In it, station announcer Mr. Lowvoice urges viewers to go to "w-o-w-t-dot-com, back-slash youcast." Unfortunately, no one in the SuxNews production chain is computer-literate enough to know that web addresses, known as urls, use forward-slashes, not back-slashes. Then again, none of them may even know what a back-slash is.

Anyway, this ad has run for weeks without correction. We were going to wait until someone caught the error. Then we remembered what station we were dealing with.
