Yak Herder Central

Yak Herder and his trusty(?) altered ego, The Swami, are content to provide little content of their own, but delight in providing "helpful" commentary to the blogs of others ....ALL THE NEWS THAT'S FAIRLY UNBALANCED

Yak TV??

It is here at last! The channel that yak fans have been clamoring for.

Mongolian Internet TV

Please, Please. Restrain yourselves. I know that this is exciting news and most of the readers of Yak Herder Central are eager to sign up for Mongolian TV. You may want to wait a bit though.

Contrary to many expectations, Zak the Yak does not yet have his own show. There are some other shortcomings of Mongolian Internet TV. The schedule is a bit sparse. Programing does not begin until late afternoon. It is much like TV in the US was in the late 1940s.

As a public service The Swami wondered how he could help Mongolian TV lurch forward into the 21st century without taking the 50+ years that it took the US to move from only a few hours of TV per day to the cornucopia of wonderful, highly-educational choices we have today. Swami asked himself what is the key difference between 1950s TV and today's TV.

Eureka!! Infomercials. That's what's missing.

By Jove, Clive. I believe that's the answer.

All that the Mongolian TV channel needs to do is add 16-18 hours a day of infomercials for Flab Master, Yak-hair Toupees, get-rich-quick schemes for selling yak milk by yak mail, and The Yurt Shopping Network.

And above all, Mongolian TV is probably more uplifting than our evening news.

It seems that the Mongolian TV site isn't working right now.
I can't wait to see it!

The Mongolian TV link seems to have an extra "http://" in front of it.

Try cutting and pasting this into your browser instead of clicking on Swami's link:

Blogger is sooooo counterintuitive.
