WHY DO YOU THINK THEY CALL IT "THE IDIOT BOX"?
by Jerry Hinkle, Special to the Holabird Advocate
Television has really become a factor in the dumbing down of America. Now I've never seen it but I've heard that "Joe Millionaire" really struck a nerve with some people. One report has it the the "Hero" of this show is a construction worker posing as a millionaire to get some "Golddigger action". If that's not enough to make you throw up, it was said that one of the herd of women that he had to chose from asked him what his middle name was and the moron had to think about it. I haven't heard of anything so stupid since I asked Peggy Jo Eckstien what her middle name was. That's right, I went right up to her and said, "Peggy Jo, what's your middle name?" Of course, I was in the first or second grade at the time. What's this guy's excuse?
How about this for some reality TV. Ten "celebrities" are trapped on a Tyson pig farm in northwest Iowa and forced to work on it. I wonder who they would get. Of course it should be in the summertime, when it gets hot and really stinks the most. That would be an excuse for the fellas to go shirtless and for the gals to likewise use the (excuse the expression) bare minimum. Now I'd watch a show like that.
