Ozzy and Sharon

Ozzy and Sharon

Why is Sharon Osbourne doing commercials for the Atkins Diet?  Didn’t she get her stomach banded? (I swear, celebrities must think America is full of long-term-memory-loss idiots!) Okay- so Sharon will say she had her band removed – (as to why, I don’t know-Ill admit I’m curious) but that doesn’t change the fact that she had  an operation that got her thin in the first place, which is how she lost weight! How could that ever help a regular person (Perhaps these programs can change lives– but for cryin’ out loud- who would buy into the advice of a person who had a well publicized weight loss operation? It worries me to think people could be that gullible!) Sharon has said- time and time again that NO DIET EVER WORKED, and now she’s taking money from people by selling them the same crock of sh** she resented being sold.

Now, to completely change gears:

'You can't sit with us!!'

‘You can’t sit with us!!’

What is the freakin’ deal with Pluto? I don’t believe in Astrology anymore -but when I was a teen, I recall perusing astrology books with friends (remember Linda Goodman’s Love Signs?) until I realized every sign’s qualities could be applied to me (or anyone else) If someone didn’t know  their birthday, would they know their own sign through their supposedly obvious traits? Nope. Of course not! Anyway, in those days I vaguely recall it said that being a Pisces had a lot to do with the planets Neptune and  Pluto. There was lots of babbling about ‘Pluto’s position at birth’ Pluto in retrograde, all kinds of Pluto action that I don’t remember- but I know it was important in the ‘Let’s Try And Sell Astrology’ world. So- now- what’s the deal? How do Astrologists bullshit their way around this? Do they act like it never mattered? Wouldn’t the loss of a planet shake up all of their so-called analysis and predictions? Wouldn’t all of those Astrology books be considered moot now? Not that I believe any of it’s of true anyway- but don’t’ astrologists have to answer to that? Just sayin! ‘ It’s like if all math books suddenly didn’t have sevens!

I miss you, too...(tear falls...)

I miss you, too…(tear falls…)

And while we’re at it:

I see the ads for a show called ‘What Would You Do?’ where they set up a hidden camera, and watch as people ignore someone in peril.  An actor, who they’ve paid to do something vile- like steal a bike, or a man violently arguing with his ‘girlfriend’ etc. sets the bait, then the camera rolls to capture humans being despicable.  The message: You won’t believe how heartless people can be! And there is a news show affiliation to this program, which strikes me as odd. Aren’t these the same news casts that report every catastrophe known to man, including ‘Good Samaritan Gets Sued For Resuscitating Victim’ or ‘Man Shot While Trying To Help Abused Woman!’ or ‘Good Samaritan Killed While Helping Change Stranger’s Tire!” The message is (according to the newscaster with the glint in her eye) ‘Watch Out! Don’t take any chances being sued or maimed by crazy strangers!’ So, why are you surprised when people shy away from doing the right thing? They’re only minding their own business like you taught them to. For fear of the repercussions of empathy you love to report on. We’re a litigious bunch, us Americans. And doing the ‘right’ thing can sometimes be very, very wrong – or at least that’s what you keep telling us! 

And, finally…..

How annoying is it when a television show posts Tweets across the bottom of the screen? Nine out of ten times they do nothing but gush about the show, or make idiotic, personal statements, like ‘Turtleman: Poop Professor! @duhman’ It’s so distracting and nearly impossible to ignore! I feel like (unimaginative, moronic) strangers are in my living room, uninvited! Unless you can supply a feature that allows me to disable these comments- I implore you, Television Show- to STOP WITH THE ANNOYING TWEETS. (The only way these tweets would be interesting was if they posted the critical ones- then we might have a game- but that’ll be the day!! I’d love to Tweet in:’ This show is obviously scripted.  Why do you assume I’m too stupid to notice it?’ Hashtag: Come at me, bro)
