Dawn of the E.P.O.C.H.

Via The American Scene, a proposal for a new sitcom, Everybody Pisses Off Christopher Hitchens, featuring

a wacky female neighbor who, even though she works some great prop comedy and hilarious visual gags, never manages to amuse the star, who sits at the kitchen table drinking Scotch and blinking like a mordant eagle caught in the rain. The show's signature catch-phrase is, "I find that boring and irritating," and on a very special holiday episode Hitch gets very drunk and regales the neighborhood kids with the story of the lost weekend he and Kingsley Amis spent in Tijuana.

What a great idea. I expect to use the catch-phrase even if the show itself never airs.
