Or maybe of the year...

Werner Herzog on the addition of commercials to movies shown on commercial television:

Sure, centuries from now our great-great-great-grandchildren will look back at us with amazement at how we could allow such a precious achievement of human culture as the telling of a story to be shattered into smithereens by commercials, the same amazement we feel today when we look at our ancestors for whom slavery, capital punishment, burning of witches, and the inquisition were acceptable everyday events.

Oh, I'm feeling amazed all right, but not by the desecration of a Sunday matinee of Predator being interrupted by Geico commercials.
