A reality we don't need

If you live in America, then you certainly know that you can always count on Fox TV to act with total class. In keeping with their long tradition of quality programming, now they're launching a reality television show around layoffs.

Now, lest you find me to be a stick in the mud without a sense of humor, let me just say that I don't find watching people have their lives pulled out from under them in a most undignified manner a laughing matter. I'd rather see the Fox CEO get a kick in the crotch; now there's entertainment.

Even though the world economic is going to hell in a hand basket, it's important that we retain our collective sense of humor and continue to keep on living. However, do you really want to see a bunch of witless bastards jockey like rats around leftovers for their job (which I'm going to bet is one not worth keeping anyways?)

Well, apparently Fox thinks you do. I don't know about you, but I live with the threat of layoffs during office hours on Monday-Friday; why on earth would I want to tune in for more?

Of course, the show is bound to be a boon with the arrogant crowd who takes delight in the misfortune of others and thinks that these folks should just "go out and get a job". Thanks, Fox, you guys really deserve a Bronx cheer!
