Idle Worship

American Idol… is it me or, to paraphrase America's mom…

Are they runnin' the place like a plantation, and you know what I'm talkin' about?

I'd watched the first thirty minutes of the American Idol premiere when I asked the wife, "Is it me or are shrieking 'ho's just not as interesting as they used to be?

Wife: "I think the spastic guys are more coordinated this year."

We managed to get through the first hour, and I had to turn it off…

"Who's gonna watch any more of that," I wondered?

Turns out, just about everyone not on life support.

It's being reported that hospitals were running the show for people in comas and that many left intensive care under their own power…

Presumably heading for an American Idol audition.

And yes, we've watched each succeeding episode. The wife said she thought the final twelve would be the best ever (is that saying much?). I still had no interest, but watched anyway to show support for the troops.

And didn't Randy Jackson have the stomach reduction surgery? If so, I cant wait for his diet tips book: "How I Stay Fat On 300 Calories – An Hour.

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.
