Good enough for Letterman
Well done, Rob! This was hilarious, and could have made it onto Letterman IMHO. You had me laughing out loud by No. 5.

Re: The LA Clippys
This is interesting question. Clippy is pretty handy but it would be nice to watch how long it will last as a mascot. I would prefer to have this mascot there even though I don't use it so often. To me somehow it's a symbol of MS Office.:-)

The LA Clippys
Maybe this is all a ruse to bring back disgraced MS Office virtual assistant, Clippy. The Clippers become the Clippys. How long would Clippy last as a mascot before getting beaten to a pulp by fans?

Ballmer's Clippers destine for 'Show time?'
Blake Griffin may not like this list, and No. 8 isn't bad, but I like No. 1. Who'd you rather seek to unseat: Google or the Lakers? In the Laker's current state, the Clippers may have a shot at becoming the darlings of LA. The Clippers and the Warriors may become the hottest in-state rivalry. (Ah, after baseball season).
