As I see it, our culture is shallow at best, at worse it's one of a bully mentality. We are practically obsessed with the worst elements of the human condition. If we weren't TruTV wouldn't even be a station. If you doubt me then why the fuck is that dumb cunt Snooky getting a show? I didn't even know who she was until they made fun of her on South Park and I wiki her and find out she's getting a show? Why the fuck do people want to watch a piece of shit be shitty? As I see it, it's no different from why people engage in bullying: to feel better about themselves at someone else's expense. It's why they watched Jerry Springer and all those stupid reality shows (sweet 16, bridezilla, etc.).

I think I'm becoming a misanthrope.

This is not a well thought out rant.

Long story short: Snooky + her own show = sign of cultural demise

Also reading up on american art history hasn't helped. It's actually kind of sad how little we've changed.

I was about to ask, who the fuck is Snooky?, but then I realized I'm probably better off not knowing.

So just pretend I didn't say anything.

Snooky makes me love James Cameron by comparison, she's THAT bad. Three words: Jersey Shore star

I have no idea what the fuck you're talking about. And if MTV is involved I'd like to keep it that way.

I like when you decry America as a culture of bullies, then call Snookie a dumb cunt!

Yes, in an extremely bullying way, you fucking dickbag. You are a prime example of the very sort of culture that you are trying to rail against! How can someone lack self awareness so much?

Have you ever seen Jersey Shore? The whole premise of the show seems to be "who can act like the biggest cunt". Also, do you think that you, as such a huge fan of Miley Cyrus, should really be casting stones?

I've been very lonely in my isolated tower of indecipherable speech.

But even *I* can see THAT SNOOKY IS A SAINT THAT DESERVES THE THIRTY GRAND SHE MAKES PER EPISODE!!!
