We’re proud to say this open has held up for seven years, despite the frequent protests of the esteemed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, who has spent a great deal of time and energy decrying the fact that the earth spends the wrong way in the open.
Of course, it’s a parody of a news show, so uh, anyway... In fact, there are no fewer than three earths in the open, and the first is a sort of Russian nesting doll that unscrews (spins both ways, sorta like politics) and delivers an “earth” that was conceived of as two hamburger buns that open up and reveal the meat (i.e., the logo). We weren’t paying a whole lot of attention to reality — much like the “news” that TDS parodies.
