Drabble News Into Sound

I love the Drabblecast. But I wince whenever Drabble News is announced — not because of the news content itself, but because of the loud CH-CH-CH-CHEK DIS. It's just such an out-of-place grating sound that I actually take my headphones off when I hear it coming.

On the other hand, I love the little drumroll and "drabble!" makes me smile everytime I hear it.

Pretty strange that the longest topic thread in the forum is about Tweedy's logo. Wouldn't the Drabble News intro soundbite be as worthy of treatment as the logo?
Yo, submit.

I turn my headphones up when that comes on. Keep it!

Man, I've been hearing it for so long, it's hard to be objective.

It doesn't grate on me, but if I pull myself to an newcomers perspective, it isn't as refined as the rest of the stuff. Norm is usually pretty subtle (Death match episodes excluded), this isn't. I could see how it would be jarring.
