So, on Wednesday, I did a comedy show at which the host, a comic named Theron, introduced me as, "Co-host of the Williamsburg Spelling Pee."

Everyone laughed. Flustered, he followed up with:

"Uh, yes, the Williamsburg Spelling Pee ... it comes right after the Math Poo."

Good Morning America

From my contact at GMA: "Looks like we got bumped a couple of weekends in a row. Now we're looking ahead to January. That's what happens with an evergreen feature story sometimes."

I'll let you know when it's going to finally air (if they tell me)!
