American Idol and Ellen DeGeneres
First of all let me state that I enjoy watching American Idol. However, I am disgusted with the "Idol Gives Back" thing going on right now. Last night Seacrest stated that there were over 70 million votes and that when the voting reached 50 million votes some company or other "donated" 5 million dollars to the charity effort. Big whoop!! Each call (I have never called to vote btw) costs 99 cents. Am I the only one doing the math here?
Also, there is Ellen, in her most heartfelt, teary eyed, pleading way, telling me that I MUST have an extra 20 dollars to send in. Well, Ellen, and the rest of you celebrities can kiss my hardworking ass. When these people donate the extra MILLIONS of their fortune and live at the same standard of living as I do then I would consider donating. (Not really, as I already donate to my local animal shelter). Simon can sell his Bentley's and buy his cheesy T-shirts at Walmart instead of RO-DAY-O Drive. (Just a clue to all you "stars": Here in Texas it's ro-DEE-o, ya pompous bastards!!) Ryan can buy his $1200 suits at Goodwill. Randy can keep a little of his and take some English classes, I won't begrudge him that. Oh, and Paula, I love you but Alcoholics Anonymous is free hon.
One other thing: How about we get all these Africans together and have a little BIRTH CONTROL!!! party? Or maybe if you folks could get a hobby, say for instance gardening and STOP screwing each other for a week, well, then you might have enough FOOD for all of you!!!!
Okay, I think I'm done. Thanks for listening.
