Reality TV

Imagine how many people must sing along to the American Idol theme song at once - millions of people, sitting in front of their televisions, going "Booo-waaahhh"* in perfect unison! Terrifying thought. To say nothing of the hordes of people staring at the Dr. Phil intro and chanting, "I want you to get excited about your life!" Not that I watch those shows.

*da-dah da-dah da-dah da-dah booooWAAAAHHHH

Do you know what was good reality TV, back before reality TV was even that cool? Judge Judy. I still have trouble believing that she is a real judge because she looks like a Skeksis.

See?


This also showed up in the image results

There was going to be some more ramble about reality TV here but I've gotten sidetracked by bad tattoos. Like this one. I can absolutely see how this happened:


BEERS BEERS BEERS BEERS

And this lady, who is apparently going to be pregnant from here on out:


And this chick who I guess just really hates doggy-style:

And I don't even really know what this is but I thought you should see it.


In other news, a friend's having a costume party where you go as a song title. People keep suggesting "Hooker With A Penis" but I am trying to be classy. Suggestions welcome.

I think you should go as a song by the Flaming Lips! Pretty much any title would do.

Or you could go as "My Humps" (dress as a camel).

Or "Pokerface" (glue cards and poker chips to your face).

Ooh, Radiohead have some good ones.

"Fake Plastic Trees". "Talk Show Host". "Molasses". "Karma Police". "Hunting Bears". "Weird Fishes".

Oh if you want to be classy I think you should go as "Lady in red"

or Golden Earing's "She's got the whole world in her dress"

That last tatt is a Red Indian with a square hole in his chest climbing salaciously onto a Dagwood Dog. And we all know what that means.

Perhaps go to the party as Blubber Boy (Regurgitator).

Fraser Dron said...

Actually, Regurgitator have several song titles that would make horrifying costumes.

My favourite things? silence is golden (duct tape would do it)? Sex Bomb ? knights in white satin?

you could paint your bum blue for blue moon. puff the magic dragon, the unicorn song

Ok i'll stop now

Kate has suggested 'I'm A Little Teapot,' 'Going On A Bear Hunt,' and 'Telephone.' Kate is not helpful.

I thought I might just wear my camo jumpsuit and a shitload of weaponry and be 'I Will Survive'

Zoë said...

wow those are some bad tattoos! The baby on board one is hilarious. And who would want a needle being stuck in their pregnant belly anyway?

Holy crap, is that an Indian climbing a corndog? Unreal. I love reality TV. While I was in law school my grandma used to call me up and start crying at how she hopes she'll live to see the day when I'm on TV like Judge Judy. Probably not gonna happen G'Ma because the thought of wearing a doily around my neck overwhelms the desire to yell at people on TV.

I once went to a come-as-a-song party as 99 Red Balloons. I pinned lots (not quite 99) red balloons in different degrees of inflate, to my clothes. I spent the whole party singing the first few lines of 99 Red Balloons to a room full of people who'd never heard of it. But I still think it was a cool costume.

chris.dadness said...

I really hope you were singing it in German. Something like "Niner-nine zig luft balons" if I remember.

Fraser Dron said...

That costume has a built-in pick up line!

"So...hast du etwas zeit für mich?"

Baby beluga? Big Green Tractor?

Those look fun, is all I'm sayin.

That last one...where the "seductive" indian person is humping a corndog...That's gonna give me nightmares.
