The final Tivo update. We promise.

by Jeremy Hooper

In obvious reaction to the controversy generated over the past two weeks, the folks at Focus on the Family have pulled (been forced to pull?) the Tivo logo off of their "Superdad" contest. It used to look like this:

Picture 8-91

And now it looks like this:

Picture 31-11

Message = sent. Brava, everyone.

Your thoughts

I expect now they'll claim that Tivo is out to "destroy traditional television as it has existed for thousands of years". Or that they are now being discriminated against because Tivo's rights to it's own trademark is conflicting with FOF's right to steal it. Or that they don't really hate Tivo, they just hate the bubble noise that is shoved down their ears every time they use the remote.

I predict a FOF commercial soon:
Little girl, crying: "Mommy, a Tivo was in the AV cart today at school!"

I hope it's not the last word . .cause I'm still pissed that the last 4 words of my essay put me in the auto-regect pile of a national "contest".

"My Dad provided everything for me, protected for me and accepted me for the person that I am. . .the whole me. . .including the gay part."

That "dad" doesn't look very "super" anyway. Looks more like Will Ferrell, with his undies outside of his pants.
