Are We Breaking #2 Of The Ten Commandments?...

     Mkay...somebody pu-leeze explain to me all of this "American Idol" hype!  I simply don't get it...

     Teenaged KIDS go on national television to be judged by the American public whether or not they meet the "high" standards of the American people to be considered an American Idol...the extremely intelligent American public TEXT MESSAGES or CALLS in their vote and only one of these young lost souls gets crowned "THE" American Idol.

     I'm sorry to have to inform you of this, but I'm pretty sure most of those votes are coming from a trailer park located somewhere in an extremely remote part of the country...where huge, flat-screened TVs are more important than feeding the children...just as long as the 3x4 screen fits nicely on the single wide, tin wall and it doesn't cause the trailer to tilt TOO much to one side!

     Oh...and if YOU happen to be a fan of this show, OF COURSE I am not talking about YOU (unless you ARE living in the double-wide, missing several teeth, and truly believe seeing young kids humiliated on national TV is a "hoot").

     As they say in the "biz", that's entertainment...

Everyone loves a winner!  This phenomena started over here a number of years back and then got exported to the US of A.  Blame us Brits for this fine example of an exercise in humiliation.  Why anyone would willingly put themselves up for this is beyond my understanding...
