My lovely wife, who knows way more than I do, had the TV up way too loud. I didn’t complain because the TV I was watching was on mute. I looked up from the computer long enough to see if we were watching the same channel.
My TV was muted on the Cartoon Network. Her TV was blaring out MSNBC and some story about American Idol. Something about the underdog, underwear, uber-idol that nine year olds find compelling. I honestly don’t know the details.
Oddly the cartoon characters on my screen were in perfect sync with the talking heads on her screen. Animated mouths, hinged at the neck were spewing out the same tele-prompter text as MSNBC.
I love the universe when it tells me I’m right about “reality” TV. I have to go watch South Park now.
