    The lengths people will go to get on television reach new levels of amazing me every day. I was listening to Dr Laura once (there is VERY little good stuff on the radio around here) and listened to the people calling in. They'd ask for advice about having their fourth kid with their third boyfriend, and then act shocked when Dr. Laura suggests the little tramp get her uterus cauterized shut. I mean, I've been listening to the woman for five minutes and I got the gist of the show. Did these people think their story was so unique and special that it would make Dr. Laura's heart grow three times that day and offer advice that did not involve the word "stupid"?I have a great idea for a reality show. People would be asked to audition for a reality show that is SO offensive, no sane rational person would go near it with a hazmat suit on. Something like "Plantation", where you had to play the role of either a slave or a landowner, and see which team wins. I'd love to see the mental gymnastics people would go through to convince themselves the show is "political commentary" and justify their participation in such an event. And of course the real show would be those audition tapes. And yes, people would still sign the releases…so they could be on television.So far the best cringe-inducing reality show I've seen is "Cheaters". They et a woman who wants her man checked out, set up a sting where he hooks up with a girl, and then when they go to seal the deal, they burst in with cameras and the wife/girlfriend. And you have to remember, after that all happens…they have to sign the release or they wouldn't be allowed to air it.We got the best reality show ever when Saturday Night Live brought us "Irwin Mainway's Sucker Showcase"…but they're getting close.

      You may have something there with "Plantation" Vinnie. I think that show would be on TV now if the networks were not afraid of some moral 'outrage' from the public. The same public that would watch that show. BTW I L O V E Cheaters! That show is great, it's SO bad it's good!

    Yes-I am an illustrator. Yes the illustration above is very good. No-I did not do it. The artist's name is Tatiana. Yes-one name, just like Prince, but not as short.

      Now you tell me.

        I said I was commissioning artwork. I did not day I was doing artwork. Remember what happened last time I tried that.

    • Brian Alvey says:

      Are you saying her name isn't as short as Prince's or that Tatiana is not physically as short as Prince?Or both? ;-)

      • Michael Davis says:

        Did I not mention that I went to public school? I don't know WHAT I am saying. But what you said sounds right…I think…no I'm sure of it…maybe.

          Opps meant to sign-in. :-(I met Prince and was a lot taller than him…. and we were both wearing heels!

            3rd time is a charm, I finally got the log-in correct!I love watching the Moment of Truth! It was amazing that the question that woman the woman lost on was if she considered herself a good person. She said yes and it was false, thats got to be ironic. She aired her dirty laundry to her family and the viewing public but lied to herself!

    Harlan Ellison says the television viewing public is a bunch of idiots. That so many of the 'reality' shows are doing so well seems to confirm it.

    • John Tebbel says:

      Viewers a bunch of idiots? The very idea. Just who does this Harlan Ellison fellow (if that's his real name) think he is?

    (had to sign in)The only show I'd want to be on is 1 vs 100, if they put in ramps and let me sit down.Michael, popcorn is a whole grain, it has tons of nutritional value. Now if you make it on the stove with peanut oil like I do, the oil degrades the nutrition a bit. But I don't care.
