Temporarily Embarrassed Millionaire mindset. Yes, I have watched 10 minutes of Jersey Shore, and I nearly wretched as I thought about how popular the show was and how inexorably stupid I found it. It's not just Jersey Shore:
Any "Dancing with the..."
"You think you can..."
any variation related to the contrived Kardashian, Brett Michaels, or Simmons viruses
the "Survivor" popularity contest (not a true "Survivor survival skills contest"
Donald's Trumped up publicity train wreck
any pet whispering show other than the original Dog Whisperer, which actually makes sense
"16 and anything..."
"19 Kids and clueless about birth control as we imagine we are building Gawd's army"
"Americans at Idle"
"The Bachelor(x)" unnecessary dramas
"Wife Swap" that does not include actually swapping wives
It once again reminds me of one of the corporate moves that my family endured in the 90s, where the movers labeled book cartons as "Buchs" and said to Dr Desert Flower and I "y'all sure got alot of books" as they rolled dolly after dolly after dolly of books out of the house and into the moving truck.
