B and I may be two of the only people who will admit it, but I've decided that the TV show Extreme Makeover Home Edition is one of the worst worst worst shows on television. What they do is so outrageous and in the long run often does more harm than good. I didn't think anyone else agreed with me, and after being completely chastized at work for admitting that I thought it was so horrible, I decided not to blog about it. But thanks to John (our token repulican reader), I found that we are not the only ones, as evidenced by the show being #47 on the 100 most annoying things of 2005. Here's what they say:
You know, it doesn’t seem like building an $800,000 dream homes for a family who’s father lost his job as a professional rope skipper because he twisted his ankle is the best use of resources to help out America’s neediest people.Sums it up pretty well. I wonder how many Habitat For Humanity homes they could make with the money they spend on one 10-bedroom house equipped with plasma TVs in every room and a garage full of brand new cars. The worst part about it is that they act so self-righteous about what they are doing.
Slate also has a pretty good slide-show essay on how to supersize your house.
And this just in, a new Will Ferrell as George Bush sketch, this time talking about global warming. Hilarious!
