Not a Fan

April 21, 2011

“The motherfuckin’ TV blasts all day.  I hear those guys all day long takin’ votes about what to watch – it takes five or ten minutes – some fool reads the whole TV Guide hourly, loud as he can, then they vote on each idiotic show.  Insane.  The Boob Tube.”

What was once a fairly realistic landscape is now a hopelessly lost, horrific dream scape. Today I saw this headline with a serious story beneath it: After birthers demand authentication of Obama’s Placenta!
