this is awesome. in version 2.0 (I hope there is a version 2.0) I propose that they replace the smoke with glitter/confetti.

This is clever. Ellen is always good clean fun and it's always fascinating to detect the delightful influence of Bob Newhart in her work (her stand-up delivery is dotted with Newhartisms) - also it's interesting to follow the further "mainstreamism" of Boing Boing. Ellen Degeneres is one of several talk show hosts (Fallon and Kimmel among them - Jay Leno, not so much) at the cutting edge of mainstream, middle-America comedy. I'm wondering if and when Boing Boing will fully embrace the glories that are Honey Boo Boo and the Kardashians (one can only hope) - luckily you've got the Rob Ford saga nailed...a mainstream lovefest that tops them all.
PS - what would have been less funny but more technologically current, would have been for ELLEN to replace the "Mad Men" cancer sticks with e-cigarettes. Eh, probably not funny at all...

I really hope this is sarcasm. It has to be.

except boingboing followed Rob Ford long before he was mainstream.

Sarcasm is a weak man's game - subtle mockery is where it's at!

Noise pollution too, eh? All the more reason to make them go outside.
I kid, I kid.
