The worst though is that people don't watch Letterman or Leno, they watch Whitty Banter (get it? His first name's probably Whitman, but as a nickname it sounds like "witty"! ... Kill me.) When I first saw it, I thought it was a typo. There was a scene where Kyle Rayner was flirting/ working with a model, and he says, "How about some Whitty Banter?" and she in her somewhat revealing attire says "Oh, I LOVE Whitty Banter!" and I'm thinking, "It's good that they find conversation a good romantic stimulator, but MAN is that some odd pillow talk."
Yeah it was annoyingly cutsie.
I choose to focus on the good stuff like the Tv show "I'm Jack Ryder & you're wrong" or Radu's (since you've already cited Kyle Rayner). Strangely i have never felt the need to name a coffee fanchise in my setting: Maybe its the fact that Western Australia (where i reside), unlike the East Coast doesn't really indulge in the coffee culture thing to that level, so its never been something any of my players think about.
