Regis Philbin


Beloved television host Regis Philbin chats with photographers shortly before his surprise announcement that he's leaving his daytime talk show.  

While Mr. Philbin claims the move was his own decision, one can't help but wonder if he was pushed out by sinister corporate stooges.   More and more, America's finest television personalities are getting the axe for being too popular.  Too smart.  Too provocative.  And let's face it: too handsome.

Don't let a dirty old wad of gum outlast you, Regis!  Fight the power!

  2. I see the Late Show is also exchanging traffic cones with Switzerland. Or is it Sao Tome and Principe?

  3. It's a joint Sweden/Slovakia/Swaziland cone. Very tense and complicated. You can see why the U.N. budget is so high.
