The "Of Course" Thread
« on: July 01, 2014, 01:48:07 AM »
We all know it's one of Jorch's favorite filler phrases, but how often does his feeble brain utilize it? Well, I spent the month of June counting them, but because I have a life too (do I?) I settled on examining just the first half hour of the show.

Jorch worked 20 days in June. On any given night he and his guests have 20-21 mins of talktime between the top and bottom of the first half hour. In those roughly 400 mins of airtime he hit the OC button 41 times or about once every ten minutes.

He started the month rather timidly, with two and three uses each day. Then he settled into a 3-4 a day rhythm until the 11th, when Dinesh D'Souza was on. That night he hit his personal best of 9 OC's within a 14 min span. That's admirable! He's must have exhausted himself, because after that he settled down to a routine 1-3 a day for the rest of the month. Three days were amazingly OC-free.

I'll continue to monitor the Tourette's-ish frequency with which he employs OCs. My hope is that he'll eventually hit double digits, and maybe, just maybe, reach 20 in 20 mins. I think I may spontaneously combust with joy if that happened.

But for now, of course, the record stands at...

Noory having and maintaining a job gives hopes to millions of incompetent people around the world. I pity you for having to listen to so many hours of rubbish to bring us this tidbit.

And you think he has signs of OCD? Where is your base line?

Keep monitoring him of course, just in case real life has no purpose.

Congratulations on the analysis and hard-work. I think George might be using a soundboard (maybe even the soundboard posted on this forum) on occasion. Several times I've heard a "that's right" interjection that sounds different in volume and voice than when he asks a guest another question. Who knows? I'm still waiting for some open-lines caller to call in and use the Jorch soundboard and confuse Tommy and George.

Immy gets 5 out of 5 stars for this great post.
Thanks for your dedication and analysis of George's maddening overuse of this phrase.
Once you notice how much he uses it, especially during a guests introduction, it really is quite bizarre.

I agree. Great analysis though I'm not sure how much couch time might be necessary after such an onerous endeavor.  Norry is worse than a earworm like the Kylie Minogue song of same name. Now I hear people saying "of course" and "its true" and I think of George. I find myself looking at babies... and wondering "is it a mean baby?"

Thanks folks. Chalk it up to simple boredom. I also have a sibling who uses lots of comfort phrases ("literally" is a nagging favorite) so I've been exposed to the phenomena for awhile, no therapy needed...I don't think.  :o

I also wanted to contibute something specific beyond the daily chronicling of his suckitude. Someday someone with psycho-analytical chops will descend on our little forum, ID and package up all Jorch's syndromes and finally put a name to the major malfunction that causes him to be the scourge of the airways. I'm happy to provide one piece of the puzzle.

That's cuz "sumthin's gonna happin, I can feelit."  ::)

Today's OC count in the first half hour was three, the most so far this month. C'mon Jorch, you can do better than that!

Three again tonite, though he snuck in two more in quick succession after coming back at the bottom of the hour, but they don't count. ;)

Mental fatigue may be a factor here (do what you will with that everyone ;D). By Friday he'll have worked ten of the first eleven days of the month, so as the week progresses I expect the OC count to increase.

The great thing is he rarely uses the phrase properly. Good ol' Tongue Flaps is reliable, if nothing else.

The presence of KA Fitts in-studio must've thrown Jorchie off his game, zero OCs in the first half hour. He instead concentrated on constantly interrupting her in mid-sentence. Maybe he'll get back to OC-normal tonite.

It depends how erudite the guest is.  My hypothesis is that George uses 'of course' to cover his ignorance every time he looks something up on Wikipedia.  I sketched a comic strip about it a few weeks ago that I was going to polish up and post but I haven't wanted to put in the time to actually make something presentable.

Hard to say. An expert in linguistics might shed some light on the reason.

John Kruk on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball is another example. He'll drop a "y'know" dozens upon dozens of times per game. Often wonder if it drives his partner Dan Shulman nuts.

Some random, frustrated guest - "Isn't this a great thread, Jorch?"

Jorch - "Of course!"

Some random, frustrated guest -"Jorch, isn't it time for you to jump off a cliff?"

Jorch - "Of course!"

Jorch Noory, folks!  Poster child for driver license department employees and postal workers everywhere.

A 2nd best SEVEN OC's tonite, only the third time Jorch has passed five in the first half hour (actually 20 mins). I was rooting for double digits like a madman but it wasn't meant to be. Effing hilarious.
