The cat with the "DIABEETUS" underneath is a parody of Wilfred Brimley from the Liberty Medical Commercials.The cat is wearing the glasses of the current year, the HBO is from the HBO in Space Open which I find cool.The shooting enterprise is the current one from the new Star Trek movie, it's shooting at Kash from the Geico commercials to display my anger of commercials. 
One good thing about TV-you could always turn it off

I chose the avatar that I did because I felt it would help me learn more about Pandora.

Right, so that was lame.  I'll start over....

I chose this avatar of Ed (Ed Edd n Eddy) because he's my favorite cartoon character (and perhaps my favorite TV character), and because it's amusing to me.
I have 168 characters remaining.

I chose the Viacom V of Doom because it is commonly known as the scariest closing logo ever. Millions of children who grew up in the 1970's would recognize the logo and jingle anywhere.
Closing logos! Now that's something I can watch on TV.

I had none until teenage member Nite Raidah made one for me on June 3, 2007.  I liked it, and have since seen no need to change it.

Mine shows what I'd rather watch than most of the ads that we all complain about on here! 
Welcome to Commercial Land. This is a magical place where all women look up while eating, and it is perfectly acceptable to slurp the hell out of a Dannon yogurt cup.

I've always been a Timbuk3 fan & I thought their album cover featuring a TV set strapped to the back of a jack-ass was apropos.

It was the only one of the stock images I could stand, and I'm too lazy to create one of my own, or to steal one.

I chose the avatar I did because I really like the TV program Digimon -- especially season 3 where Guilmon (the one in my avatar) is featured. Big%20smileSmileBig%20smile
