Normally, I wouldn't stoop to posting someone else's comedy shtick. . . but today's mail brought a perfectly hilarious and topical entry relating to our fascination with Reality TeeVee (and it does say we're free to pass it on it we just give Top 5 credit!)
As Blowsvivor seems firmly ensconced in the halls of the ridiculous, I daresay this pertains especially well here:

Perhaps you all can come up with something even more relevant--either from actual past BV episodes, or something you'd like or expect to see in the future! (Note to writers: If you DO decide to wrangle an angry 'coon our way, please make sure it's not a rabid one!)
