Keep sending in your Katie Couric sign-offs

Katie on the newsLast week, I invited readers to send in sign-offs that Katie Couric can use on the CBS Evening News, offering stars for the best ones. Many people gave very creative answers; so many of them, that I haven't gotten a chance to read them all, especially after running around all day at the NY Television Festival.

So, I'm extending the contest, which was supposed to end yesterday, until Tuesday. So if you have a sign-off line, post one in the comments. The winner will get three stars, second place gets two stars, and third place gets one star. Our star system is down right now, but they will be awarded when it comes back up.

I Live in New Zealand and heard Katie on phone with Ellen on the Ellen show today (Sept. 21). Katie and Ellen were dicussing the contest she had about different sign offs. Katie then said she was didn't want to use 'Namaste' because it sounded 'too crunchie or yoga-ish'. I was really offended by this comment. First off, this is a formal Hello and Welcome greeting in Hindi. It has nothing to do with Yoga. And what is with the crunchie comment? Please be more careful when you use comments like this. I'm sure you not only offended me but the whole Indian Community who heard this.

For The CBS Evening News, I'm Walter Cronkite after the most cunningly successful sex change operation in the United States!

(With huge nods to WKRP in Cincinnati)

As seen on WendellWit.com ( http://www.wendellwit.com/archives/385 - where I also quoted my favorites of the previous entries):

Stay tuned to your CBS station for shows that don't even pretend to be news. So THERE, O'Reilly.

I'm Katie Couric for CBS News, officially changing its name on January 1st to "CSI: Journalism".

This is Katie Couric for CBS News, Wardrobe by Anderson Cooper's Mother.

Will Iraq fall to Civil War? Will the Housing Bubble burst? Will Paris Hilton say something else stupid? Find out tomorrow on our next episode!

I'm Katie Couric. Trust me. I know what I'm doing.

This is Katie Couric for CBS News reminding you - I don't care how badly this bombs, no way I'm ever gonna do "The Early Show."

For CBS News, I'm Katie Couric, NOT Katie Holmes.

I'm Katie Couric and that may or may not have been the News.

I'm Katie Couric for the CBS Evening News, a dinnertime tradition in America for as long as TV Dinners... and just as nutricious!
