My good friend Steve Young asked me yesterday why I call this "Yelling At The TV" when it doesn't sound like I'm yelling at the TV. I explained that when I yell at the TV (which I actually do, every night) all I yell are horrible curse words, which don't make for interesting reading after the first five hundred "you stupid fucking liar!!!!" So, this is my translation into English of yelling at the TV.
