More stupid things
As if we didn't have enough...
So tuned in to one of my few favorite programs last night only to find Buba and the boys in their fancy fire suits covered in advertising yapping about track conditions. Hoping this was some momentary delay to my usual Monday night spot I watched long enough to hear them say the reason for this interruption to my viewing pleasure. Seems one of the Buba's didn't see a truck used to dry the track filled with jet fuel and crashed into it. This reminds me of the guy here who ran into a ferry boat because he said he didn't see it. Pffft, Our boats are seven stories high and lit up like a christmas tree at night so how drunk were you when you ran into it? As for car races who the hell cares? "Look Buba they're makin another left hand turn!" "Wonder what happens next?"
Maybe they could make it more interesting by taking the governors off and adding combat weapons. That might make it interesting. A couple of 50 cals mounted where the headlights should be with a flame thrower and front and rear missile launchers might spice things up. It would sure thin out the lower end of the gene pool.
Then there's that other fine American "sport" ultimate cage fighting. Come on why not just bring back the real gladiators? You know they want to. Guys swinging real mace and other Roman weapons of that era. Make it really "ultimate"! Or how about the ultimate race through Homs, Syria on foot? You can picture contestants dodging tank shells and sniper fire. But now it seems nearly ever aspect of our daily lives has been turned into a reality show. Sorry but some things are best left at the office or factory because for the most part working is just a means to an end it's only that somewhere along the line we've forgotten what that was.
Now where the hell is my "House" Fox? Oops that's about a doctor and a hospital (Opens mouth wide extracts foot) :-)
