I actually forgot to post this until I saw Rob's excellent jingle but to honor the just-in-time tradition I sent this in on Friday. This is one of the thinnest idea I've used to make a jingle but... Scott Linn made his TK Show Newscaster debut on Thursday and by the second newscast Gary complained no one had sent in a Scott Linn jingle yet. Scott did a solid job and the only noteworthy exchange between Tony and him was when Tony admonished Scott for wearing headphones. Really one of the stupidest things I've done, and that's saying something.

Kevin’s replacement, started today,
He’s in the same room so Tone can hear what he says
He is a pro the new newsman in the chair
When you got Scott Linn, you know he's going to wear
Headphones, to do the news, baby
Headphones, Tone wants him to take ‘em off
Headphones, instead of reading news
They talk headphones
This ain’t the Czaban show
Headphones, take ‘em off Scotty
Headphones, Scott you know they gotta go

This is like writing a jingle about the first 3 sentences from the PTI preview. Setting a new standard in Lipton just-in-time-ness. :)

Funny, and I can certainly appreciate making a jingle about some of the more obscure moments from the show.
