The Thing is alive!

Do you watch “How I Met Your Mother?” If you’re at all like me, you have a newfound respect for the comic timing of one Mr. Doogie Howser. His character is constantly creating new phrases and “things” such as the dating lemon law … and then walks around giving that thing buzz and says, “Spread the word. It’s going to be a thing.”

Check it. New thing. “The Lemon Law”. On a blind date and realize whoever set you up with this uggo is truly not your friend? You’re free to go.

Finally, it appears that “Dick Skrinjar, Mayor O’Connor’s Chief of Making Shit Up” is becoming a thing.

I’d like to see this thing really get legs to the point that one day Dick introduces himself to someone new and says, “I’m Dick Skrinjar, Mayor O’Connor’s Chief of Making Sh — I mean, Director of Communications!” or at the PG assignment desk one day, the editor shouts out, “I’m getting word that the Mayor is going to hold a press conference in ten minutes, will someone please call the Chief of Making Shit Up and confirm that for me!?”

Spread the word. It’s going to be a thing!
