5. Ah, the era of reality TV...
Edited on Sun Apr-24-11 08:11 AM by CBHagman
...where the celebrity culture is taken to extremes, and attention (to say nothing of cash) is lavished on people who, to borrow a phrase and a sentiment from Mr. Bennet in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, cannot prove they have spent 10 minutes of every day in a rational manner.

And who made Mr. Dead Animal on the Head an arbiter of who's a loser and who's a winner? I've stood in puddles that weren't as shallow as this vulgarian.

On edit: DUers, speaking of reality TV culture, be sure to check out the latest Utne Reader and its cover stories on narcissism.
