Twitterer of the Week: @NBCDelayed

69290979_thumb1_thumbAs a response to NBC’s insistence on tape delaying until the evening the events that get the hausfraus watching, some comic genius has brought us this cavalcade of whimsy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • BREAKING: American colonists announce independence, King to respond.
  • BREAKING: Mark Spitz wins gold in 100m freestyle
  • Tune in tonight for the Olympic Opening Ceremonies in Beijing#NBCFail
  • BREAKING: Governor George W. Bush wins Florida, declared President-Elect. VP Gore to challenge.
  • BREAKING: Dewey defeats Truman in landslide.
  • BREAKING: Roman Emperor Theodosius bans Olympic Games, NBC delay to catch up shortly. #394AD
  • Great Britain wins gold in Tug of War, event to be discontinued at Olympics #Antwerp1920
  • CORRECTION: Dewey doesn't defeat Truman, Truman re-elected President.
  • Sources: "The British are coming, the British are coming" re: Colonists declaring independence.
  • BREAKING: Michael Jackson has died today at age 50.
  • PROGRAMMING UPDATE: Unfortunately we are not able to delay Ryan Seacrest ... or keep him off the set.
  • JUST NOW: Michael Phelps wins Gold for the 4th time.
  • Jimmy Carter announces U.S. boycott of the Olympic games this year.
  • SPOILER ALERT: London to host 2012 Olympics
  • We can't take credit for developing delays. Public transit, the Postal Service, airlines and doctor offices pioneered delaying decades ago
