Comedian Ray Romano seemed all too happy to leave behind the domestic concerns of Everybody Loves Raymond for an absurd turn as an ESPN anchor who can't stop blurting out failed attempts at banter. ("Hey! Try not to shoot that puck up my pooper!") There's no better way to have your cake and eat it too in comedy than to ridicule catchphrases in a way that itself spawns it's own catchphrase, and "Sweet Sassy Molassy" has entered the pantheon as a minor catchphrase in its own right. Boo-yah!
