Ellen: Daylight Saving Time
Are you having trouble with the adjustment to Daylight Saving Time? Ellen said she is still struggling with the morning darkness, and it’s also wreaking havoc on her technological ineptitude.
“I was trying to feel around to turn off my alarm clock. By the time I found it, I had called the cops and erased my TiVo,” she said.
Ellen: Why Do We Spring Forward
Ellen heard as a child that Daylight Saving Time was designed to give farmers more time to harvest. She said we should all give farmers a hand so they can create faster tractors.
“That’s another hour of my life I’ll never get back, when I’m behind a tractor,” she said. “Those guys drive slow.”
Ellen: No Daylight Saving Time in Arizona
Arizona is one place that does not participate in Daylight Saving Time, the annual practice of moving the clocks ahead one hour in March, only to move them back in October.
Ellen said we should all be allowed to lose an hour whenever we want, instead of the middle of the night. She said it would come in handy when trying to get dull houseguests to leave.
Are you for or against the annual Daylight Saving Time ritual?
Ellen DeGeneres also welcomed everyone to Spring, which officially begins this year on March 20 2012.

Ellen: Hot Glam Girl
If you’ve been the victim of a gauzy Glamour Shot from the ‘80s or ‘90s, you can get catharsis via Ellen’s show.
Kathleen from Pennyslvania turned in her mother-in-law’s Glamour Shot. The mature woman is clutching pearls and a white feather boa to her chest. She may also be giving a look with her eyes, but I can’t tell if it’s intentional.
Ellen: Awesome Album Covers
You know someone spends a lot of time designing album or CD cover art. Some of them end up being mocked on TV anyway.
Annie from Arizona sent in a phonograph record called Everybody’s Welcome at Mrs. Mills Party, featuring a plump woman playing the piano.
Ellen: What’s Wrong With These Photos
Sandy from Ohio sent in a book found in a bookstore. The sales sticker covered up some of the letters, so the title read “Little Ho on the Prairie.”
Ellen: Audience Facebook Photos
Ellen also likes to go through her audience’s Facebook profiles looking for incriminating photos. In the picture Ellen found, Tina was celebrating Christmas, sitting in a sexy young Santa’s lap.
Tina was totally embarrassed and said that her favorite holiday is actually Halloween. “I hope you got what you wanted,” Ellen said.
