Clip Shows
When I was younger, I enjoyed seeing memories I’ve made with a television show played out again. Now that I’m older, and more cynical, I realize clip shows are just the writers being lazy bastards who were short an original idea to make a complete season.

American Idol
If the show decides to do a human interest piece on you, you’re going on to the next round. The producers don’t give a shit that you take care of a troglodyte, retarded half brother, if you can’t hold a tune.

They were right about Iraq. They have the world’s best healthcare system. (It’s free!) And without their help, Americans could still be talking with a British accent. So let’s forgive their ill-perceived reputation for acting snooty, because if we were in their place, we’d be bigger dicks than we already are.

NFL’s Play 60
Considering that the average football game is around three hours, the NFL’s initiative to get kids to be physically active for 60 minutes a day is flawed from the start. It’s no wonder kids today are obese. When I was younger (wow, I actually don’t feel like an asshole for that last statement), 60 minutes of play would have been a limitation, not a goal.

This issue’s take away: Forget snakes, and spiders. It’s the human tongue that produces the world’s most caustic venom.
