fet Posted June 1, 2001 Share Posted June 1, 2001 I spent a few days in my parents' cable-TV-equipped home last weekend, so I thought I'd catch a little MTV - which I hadn't viewed in years - to catch up with some cutting-edge year-'01 pop culture. I found this: bikini girls on the beach, participating in a pie-eating contest(!) to honor the movie "Tomb Raider". A PIE-EATING CONTEST!? I couldn't believe it. "Hee-Haw" was better than this - funnier too. First thoughts: Contempt: for the advertisers that support this nonsense Pity: for the poor young dupes that participate in and view this network Realization: that every function of my own life is way hipper than anything that appears on MTV. If I remember Mark Twain's words right: "The Lord must love fools - he made so many of them." Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
