Sorry, just found the image of this to be hilarious:
The way you kill your TV is like this:
Do not let it know your intentions. Announce loudly that you are going to vacuum behind it. Get the upright vacuum cleaner and conceal inside the vacuum cleaner bag a sawed-off shotgun, preferably double-barreled and loaded. Move slowly and reassuringly toward the TV, making little calming cooing sounds, rolling the vacuum cleaner toward it. Do NOT look directly into the screen! Keep your eyes averted (do it casually though!) and your hands visible as long as you are in front of it. DO NOT CONTACT THE RABBIT EAR ANTENNAS WITH ANY BARE FLESH! (The antennas can detect the electromagnetic scent of human fear.)
Then, move to its side while humming the theme to ‘Love Boat’.
Now is the critical time.
Reach with one hand swiftly and yank the plug out of the socket in the wall, at the same time, unzipping the vacuum cleaner bag and swinging out the shotgun in one fluid, practiced motion (did I mention you need to practice this in the woods BEFORE?)
Immediately fire two shots (preferably two) into the back of the TV unit and then fall back behind the sofa and reload just in case.
Wait until there is no motion and no more sparks or crackles. Then take your fireplace poker and bludgeon the case until it is recognizable.
Bury it at midnight in unhallowed ground, somewhere where the sun never shines and birds do not sing.
And speak its name no more.
It’s a comment on a WorldMag post about increased TV watching in response to someone else’s comment about the need to kill the TVs.
