A Powerful Argument For Euthansia

According to experts (me) nothing reflects the current state of the Union better than the game show, Millionaire. Well, here's the state we're in as of March 9, 2010…

 

If you missed more than one of those answers yourself, ask your doctor is Sodium Pentobarbital is right for you.

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.

    It's like watching Jay Leno's Jay Walking. But then that's just my opinion. Maybe you'd like to ask the audience?

  2. TedWest says:

    The difference is that they don't represent middle America. On Millionaire, they do. The fact that Middle America isnt' that much different from the characters on Jaywalking is testament to the fact that California still sets the trend.

  3. Well we must be way above average! LOL

  4. TedWest says:

    It's a case of "way above" not meaning what it used to though. Based on what can be easily documented, you can be significantly above average today and still be an idiot.
    Look at the woman in the freeze-frame. She's old enough such that not knowing what V-E Day is should be an executable offense. And having to ask someone should involve the execution of a family member as well.

  5. My parents were in their 20s and 30s when WW2 ended. I think they told me what V-E Day signified.

  6. Darcy says:

    Even if you didn't have a clue what the "E" stood for, look at the choices — Ethiopia? Ecuador? Oh come on now! How hard can it be to figure it out? We're talking about WWII, who were we fighting? The Japanese and the Ethiopians?

  7. TedWest says:

    Darcy did what I couldn't – she took the time to spell it all out, and what she showed was why it's so muich worse than not knowing an answer. All the people in the video simply can't think. But many probably vote. And the result is spelled B-O-B-O.

  8. TedWest says:

    My wife was appalled and started going on about how bad the education system is. But the fact is that even with a lousy education, at some point it becomes the individual's responsibility when he wakes up and realizes he doesn't know anything. But a whole lot of people never wake up, but I pause whern I say that because even that let's them off the hook. That's why it's so amusing when someone dies doing something stupid – justice has been served!

  9. The date is a give away the contestant must be an idiot.

  10. Lexann says:

    You think that's bad, you should watch "Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?" I kid you not — they had a guy on there that had TWO Masters Degrees (they did not say in what), and some sort of award for Debate team. He didn't get ANY of the questions right! He didn't even know that red and blue made purple…! It was painful to watch. Who gave this guy a degree (much less TWO) and where do they find these "contestants"?

  11. TedWest says:

    LOL! I HAVE watched that show. And I can't take it. I'm afraid it may be more of an indicator of the current state of society than Millionaire is.
    It's bad enough that these people have little knowledge of geography, it's worse when they have no knowledge of history, but it's another matter altogether when they have no knowledge of current events. What do they do all day?
    Also, I tell my wife that if I were on one of these shows, and a question about Obama or some liberal came up, I wouldn't identify the scum by name. In fact, it would be something like "That Chicago scumbag, Alex!"
    Some young woman on Judge Judy told the judge that she had two degrees, and all I could scream was the Jackie Gleason line from Smokey and the Bandit: "What in the HELL is this world coming to?"

  12. TedWest says:

    Just before 2am, I was going to go to bed when I decided to check the TV guide to see what was on later. That's when I noticed that Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader was on right that moment on CMT.
    So I turned it on, watched it all the way through, and……..
