OK, maybe I was out of touch in the joint (my former home, a no-kill shelter), but now that I have more access to TV, I keep seeing these stories about Jon and Kate and wonder why.
In case you’ve been living on Jupiter, Jon and Kate are probably getting a divorce.
At first, I thought they were just some D-list actors I’d never heard of, but they refused to go away. It didn’t take much digging (I Googled “Jon Kate” and got 34.1 million hits) to learn they’re a mixed-race pair of irresponsible breeders, famous only for having a litter of 8.
Eight kids who enabled Jon and Kate to cash in by having TLC put cameras up everybody’s butt. And now these wonderful, doting parents are splitting up so their kids will grow up ping-ponging between them — and the cameras are still rolling.
Touching, isn’t it?
I haven’t watched one minute of what’s got to be the most pathetic excuse for “entertainment” ever, but millions of people have. Why? Aren’t your own families interesting enough? And why didn’t TLC immediately pull the plug when this mob ceased being a real family? Now all they’ve got is a pack of sad, confused kids led by a pair of attention-hungry humans who need to be neutered and spayed before they find new breeding partners and mate again.
In my book, these two are Non and VaKate, they’re lowering the IQ of television into minus numbers, and they deserve to be cast back into obscurity.
