I will not adore your whistlin', weather-watchin' ways.

I am forming a new group called Citizens United Against the Weather Watcher Jingle (CUAWWJ). Who’s with me? Let’s get ’em! (“ ’em” being the people at WCCO.) Our sole mission is to stop the hideous WCCO jingle before it drives all of us mad. I realize this may seem trivial and perhaps a tad mean-spirited, but I can’t take it anymore. Whenever I turn on the radio or television, there is some half-wit whistling or singing that infernal jingle. WCCO’s banal attempt to condition us all like some sort of Pavlovian dogs must be stopped!
