Stupid People Everywhere

I have about three things to blog about but I have class in about 20 minutes and I need to eat something so just one topic right now: People are Stupid. Canadians and Americans! First I was watching Canadian Idol the other day right (I heart cable{hence, consequently Jill and Damion too}) and I was blown away by the talent! I couldn't believe it! After watching the pain that was American Idol and seeing last years Canadian Idol (which both sucked monkey balls by the way) I was flabbergasted! I didn't watch the entire thing because I think I made popcorn or something but yeah. This one chick, Dianelys or something, amazing; in fact she is my new girlfriend. I love her. Anyhoo, I find out only three people make it out of the first group of 8, and it's icky soul patch (that wasn't even cool in the 90s!) metrosexual guy got in which makes me squishy up my mouth like I ate something gross and raise an eyebrow suspiciously, and the little 16 year old who sang Mariah Carey and sounds like Mariah Carey and well frankly, he's good, but I mean, Mariah Carey? And then this mediorce chick who was just as boring as the other two winners and I concluded, you know what? Canada is full of talent, amazing fucking talent, but the people who watch this show and who vote are all friggin' idiots!


Anyone, some other time I was watching TV (Hey, Ju~I watch TV and knit, do I burn more or less calories than reading?) and I came across one of the worst shows ever which is Trading Spouses. So I see this woman in a party full of vegans trying to give them dried alligator heads, and the other woman in New Orleans or something dealing with a ROTTEN son and husband complete with matching mullets. I liked that, made me feel a whole lot better about where I am in life and me as a person. I can't remember what I was watching but I came back over that channel later and saw the vegan-friend woman crying saying 'this isn't what I thought it would be' and I'm sorry but when you go on a show called 'Trading Spouses' what the hell do you think it's going to be like? No pity! No pity for you; you silly, silly woman! Honestly.

People are stupid.

Isn't that funny - I kept flipping by the same trading spouses episode and thinking pretty much the same thing. And that kid!! ohmygod!!

But yeah, at this point anyone signing up for american reality tv is kinda asking for whatever they get.

mmm gotta disagree about the little mullet-head. he was actually really good until the freakshow vegan started harping on them and critizing everything that they did. she tried to discipline him from day 1 when he did things that she didn't like. and did you see the end when the evil vegan got back to her family and got all mad at the way the money was spent?? and as someone whose been vegan (until i discovered sashimi - oh and cheese) i gotta say that she did us all a serious diservice. i watched it and was like, this is why american poor folk think left progressives urbanites are a bunch of assholes. she was condescending and nasty. the woman from new orleans tried to make vegan gumbo. she really tried.

oh my, quite the rant. anyway, i was totally endeared to the little rattail by the end.

hmm, I hadn't seen the whole show. Just bits and pieces. Very very interesting.
