'Earl' fans start Twitter petition = 'Twitition'?

Posted on


Mynameisearl_lNBC canceled persistent sitcom My Name is Earl yesterday, and, of course, its thousands of fans (as of this posting, precisely 4,371) are irate. One has already started a Twitter petition, or “Twitition,” in hopes of staying the show’s execution. My only response, naturally, is that I don’t think “Twitition” is a successful word. There are too many “t” syllables. Perhaps “Twittion” would be better. Or “Petwitter.” What do you think, PopWatchers?

Oh. And should Earl be saved?
