Wow, I forgot about that book! Thanks for reminding me! I've always wanted that book (circa 2003, nevertheless) but around the time of the redesign I had forgotten about it! Hopefully there will be a "Bone the Fish" book that talks about how the Scottish Site was destroyed, how the fans boycotted the Scottish Rag and Scottish Sellout, and how BTF came into being! The new book could also include the best of the best comments, too! Now, did I miss something else? Oh yeah, Jon Hein stinks. Good day! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on March 11, 2010, 2:41 pm

Yeah, even though I love this new website, the whole "political battleground" trend has become quite tiring! I still encourage any topic to be added and commented upon! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on March 9, 2010, 1:56 pm

Ponies - Random Topics
Who keeps adding topics like these to the website? Okay, for one, they are pretty (like Celebrity Jeopardy!), and two, I like the "hair thing" as they run (like Cody Banks!) There's my 2 cents for these useless animal topics! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on March 9, 2010, 1:54 pm

Happy Birthday To You (Song) - Random Topics
About a month or so ago, the Bo and Jim radio show from here in the Dallas area had a "Did You Know?" segment where the most unusual true facts are mentioned for listening pleasure. One of the facts was, "Did you know that 'Happy Birthday to You' is currently owned by Warner Chappell Music (Warner Bros.' songwriting division)?" They then mentioned that any public establishment (restaurants, etc.) that actually sing the song have to send a royalty check for $1 to Warner Chappell every time this song is performed! (What do you think YouTube will do because of that WMG issue, mute out entire home videos of birthday parties that have this song?) Also, in reference to my e-mail message from BTF, Happy 1st Birthday! Sorry for the long delay, I've been quite busy! Your website is still enjoyable! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on March 7, 2010, 12:48 pm

Yeah! Could we start with the "Nickelodeon" page, please? (Please remember to score out some of the words on there; these messages were from the early days of the Scottish Site and no rules were made until the Scottish Rag [TV Guide] assumed control.) -- Submitted By: (SVN) on February 6, 2010, 2:53 pm

I know that it's been quite some time since this comment was made (by Chrissy on July 13, 2009), but my favorite comment on the old Scottish Site was on the "TRL: Total Request Live" page, somebody said, "MTV=Marketing Television!" And, I liked it when people called Nickelodeon "MTV Jr!" Yeah, this webstie will be missed. Shame on you, Scottish Sellout. :-( -- Submitted By: (SVN) on February 5, 2010, 8:43 am

Grease - Movie Series
Yes, the sequel did stink (did not follow/resemble the first movie in any way), but "Grease," overall, is such a great musical! Much, much better than those stupid HSM movies, in my opinion! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on February 5, 2010, 8:26 am

Caddyshack - Movie Series
I agree that part II was a stinker! Nothing beats the first "Caddyshack" - such a funny classic! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on February 5, 2010, 8:24 am

Blues Brothers - Movie Series
I liked the part where the Blues Brothers crashed through the Toys R Us! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on February 5, 2010, 8:23 am

World Series of Poker, The - Random Topics
Yeah, I remember that fad, too. It was just as annoying as reality shows being on every channel! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on February 5, 2010, 8:19 am

Capital One - Random Topics
What a bunch of sellouts! (If you're a Texan or envy fancy shopping, you'll understand this) This insipid bank, known for their barbarian commercials, dethroned the famous Dallas store Neiman Marcus from sponsorship of their annual Christmas parade back in 2009! How un-Texan is this: the Capital One parade from Dallas, Texas! The parade makes no reference to the sponsor it replaced, the quirky Christmas commercials (along with the American Airlines commercials) are done with, not to mention most people (Dallas radio personalities, usually) don't want to use the new sponsor when talking about this parade! I have devised new nicknames to use: "The Scottish Bank," which refers to this very own bank without mentioning it by name; "The Scottish Minions," which refers to the C-1 marketing people and those who dethroned Neiman's; "The Scottish Swear," which was the clause telling Neiman's NOT to tell the reason why the sponsorship changed, and on a lighter note, "The Bank Which Shall NOT Be Named," for the same reason as the first nickname! Kudos to Mythigator for inspiration from the "Scottish Site" references! For more information on this local tragedy as well as how to help, see the "Neiman Marcus" page under "Random Topics." -- Submitted By: (SVN) on February 4, 2010, 9:42 pm

Jon Hein - Celebrities
How sad; no one has ever thought of him abandoning the old Scottish Site, only to have it become a victim of what entertainment is like today! As a result, I have distanced myself COMPLETELY from any reference to that site that shall not be named, and I can no longer look at the Scottish Sellout with a bright eye ever again! Thank you for whoever started "Bone the Fish" for bringing back an independent ranting site--and now, it's more than just TV shows! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on February 4, 2010, 4:12 pm

SlapChop - Random Topics
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x43YYdgFIAg Another reason to laugh out loud about one of the most amusing infomercial products since the "Boogie Bass": the SlapChop commercial, in reverse, with subtitles! Apologies for some of the assumed "bad words" as you watch; that's what finding subliminal messages in media is all about! (Yeah, and I liked the late "OxiClean" guy much better; he NEVER wore a headset during filming!) -- Submitted By: (SVN) on February 4, 2010, 4:00 pm

Is it just me, or is that band on the FreeCreditReport.com commercials just as silly and annoying (in a good way) as the Verizon Wireless guy? -- Submitted By: (SVN) on February 4, 2010, 3:52 pm

BoneTheFish.com - Websites
So, keeping the below comments in mind, does that mean "Bone the Fish" will finally be as famous as that old Scottish Site? I hope so; we are tired of Wikipedia taking away that information on the "Scottish Site" article! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on February 4, 2010, 3:51 pm

Wal-Mart - Random Topics
Their Supercenters are a very excellent concept, but I don't like how Wal-Mart nowadays is basically "killing" the traditional supermarket and stuff. Maybe that explains why the home-grown local chains are either being gobbled up by big name companies (Safeway, Kroger, etc.) or just closing their doors! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on February 4, 2010, 3:47 pm

Monopoly - Random Topics
Monopoly is a fun game to play! I even like playing the McDonald's version every year (been playing that for over 15 years now!), and that's my favorite sweepstakes! BTW, for probably the most amazing and humorous Monopoly game ever, here's a Youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tq_A2h1_SLY&feature=related Don't worry; this is totally G-rated! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on February 4, 2010, 3:33 pm

Battleship - Random Topics
Whoa; the new "Battleship" is THAT bad? Thank goodness my family still has the older, better version--from the 90s! That version can be easily played on the family room floor! But, other than that, Battleship is a very good and innovative concept in family board games. -- Submitted By: (SVN) on February 4, 2010, 3:28 pm

MTV: Music Television - Random Topics
The other day, I was reading old issues of "Consumer Reports" in my college library: one issue was from September 1987 and the other was from September 1991. (Sorry, I don't have the links because these were print copies from waaaay back...) Anyway, the 1987 issue (page 551) had a list of 15 basic cable channels, and at the bottom of the list, MTV, listed as "35% Excellent/Very Good!" (CNN was #1 at its time.) Four years later (pp. 578-579), more channels were added over time, and still, MTV was the second only to BET as a horrible network (listed as "40% Excellent/Very Good!"); the Discovery Channel (back when it was worth watching, of course!) was the highest ranked basic channel for its time. Since MTV was ACTUALLY a music channel (for the most part) in the late 80s/early 90s, was "Consumer Reports" very critical, or did they actually predict the downfall of that channel along with all of cable TV? Whatever the case, what a coincidence! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on January 22, 2010, 3:48 pm

John Boy and Billy - Random Topics
I may have caught them on some classic rock station in some small Texas town. It was OKAY, but I like Bo and Jim better! (Google up "Lone Star 92.5" to find out.) Too bad John Boy and Billy don't do prank calls and crazy news stories like JB&B do! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on January 22, 2010, 3:25 pm
