STUFF THAT'S LIKE A BURLAP COLONIC

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

STUFF THAT'S LIKE A BURLAP COLONIC

Gary Unmarried is Gary Unwatchable.
That thick-necked wannabe has never been interesting or funny.

He is the white version of this guy:

Why did HE get the SNL gig when it should have been this guy:

Gary Unmarried should soon become Gary Unscheduled.

It's the Charles Schwab commercials for me.

SNL parody would have the standard cartoon asshole talking about their investments (like I could give a shit) when out of nowhere a sniper's bullet would rip off half their jaw, like that guy Viggo Mortenson shot in A History of Violence.

Cartoon asshole would not miss a beat, going on and on about their investment bullshit.

The commercial with the cannibal pigs. I don't even know what the damn commercial is for.

The McDonald's Filet-o-Fish commercial with the stupid singing plastic fish.

Wife Swap and Trading Spouses. Reality TV in general.

CELEBRITY APPRENTICE
Wow.

But here is the one precious gem I was able to take away from my first accidental torturous ordeal of CA, a quote from footballer Herschel Walker.
When it was announced his team had only 7 minutes left, Mr. Walker responded , "When they say it was 7 minutes to go, man, that was like the 2 minute warning!"

ITT ads.
Grrrrrrr! "I have always liked taking things apart."
Exactly what I'd like to do to you, doofcake.
I can't blame the guys--it's just the perpeual repetition!
ITT must been raking in the dough to be able to mercilessly pummel me so many times during my morning stories.
And it's hard enough getting through Maury.

The new Burger King ads.

Seriously. Can the evangelicals hurry up the Rapture?

Annoying yes but they are pretty effective. I've never wanted to fuck a hamburger more in my life. Well almost.

Ads that are five times louder than the show they interrupted.

That person on the bus, on their cell phone, who sounds like they're shouting, from the back of the bus!

A loud argument/fight on the bus.

Once, every person, at a particular stop, got on while yakking on their cell!

On that particular day, three phone yakkers, were already on the bus. One was quite loud. When three more got on, all with phone glued to ear, it looked as if that was their entry ticket. I guess that's why so many riders are either yakking, or have ear phones for more pleasant listening.

At the Wisconsin Historical Museum Saturday there were a couple of young gals, probably around ages 10-12, wandering around with phones glued to ear giving who ever they were talking to a play by play of their museum experience, "...and there is this display of milk bottles, and they used to make paper in Wisconsin, and there is a big cow standing on nuts and bolts, and there is an old car, and there is farm stuff..."

I'm sorry, but if your kid has a cell phone attached to it's ear, you're a bad parent.

If your too-young-to-drive kid has a cell phone at all, I question your parenting skills.
