Operation Superstantial Truthiness: Photos4Writers2Flickr4Morale

Let’s put some faces to all of those “Colbert Report” fans who support the writers. Here’s what you need to do:

    1) Print out this poster: Operation Superstantial Truthiness

    (Or, if you don’t have Adobe Reader, print out the JPG on 8 1/2″ x 11″)

    2) Take a picture of you holding a copy of the poster. (Be creative, and smile, darn you, smile!)

    3) Add this picture of your bright and shiny mug to this Flickr group: Flickr Group: Operation Superstantial Truthiness

    (To add a pic to the Flickr group, you join the group by signing into Flickr and then clicking the link at the a href=”http://www.flickr.com/groups/ost/”>group’s main page. Then go back to your personal pictures, open one, and click on “Send to Group” and send it to the group. It’s that easy!)

We’ll see how this goes, but I’d love to see many, many bright and shining faces showing the writers, the TCR staff, and most importantly the AMPTP that we are the Colbert Nation, and we love our writers!

Get the word out to your message boards, your LJ groups, and your blogs. I’ll be putting a widget in the sidebar to feature the pictures, so let’s do this, folks!

    Thank you DB. I cannot wait to leave work today and take some pictures.

    This is a concrete way to boost writer morale but also to show everyone out there, including the studio moguls, that there is still a high level of support for the writers. The AMPTP would have us believe that fan support of the WGA writers is waning. Let’s prove them wrong!

  2. Yey! I’m getting warm and fuzzy already and I haven’t even taken my photo yet! I know they’ll just love this…thanks DB!!

  3. I LOVE this idea, but I’m having a problem: every time I click the link for the poster download, a box pops up that says “Internet Explorer encountered a problem and must close.” Is there another way I could get the poster?

  4. @Mira:

    Do you have Adobe Reader installed on your computer? I’m going to try to convert this to a JPG here soon, maybe that would help.

  5. @DB,

    No, I don’t think I do. Yeah, I think JPG would work, thanks mucho. :]

    Sweet Idea!

  7. I have no idea if I did that right. I guess I am getting older…the wonders of modern technology.

  8. DB, thanks for posting this. It’s a good initiative.
    I’ll be more than happy to offer a United Colors of Colbert Nation flag or two if that could help increase the number of submissions.
    I still have a few left.
    For those of you who have no idea…:
