My Hollow Head

A view of the world from my perspective.

MTV recently informed viewers that the guidos and guidettes of The Jersey Shore would be returning to the holes from which they crawled at the end of this season. While the corporations responsible for Axe Body Spray, Dippity Do Hair Gel, Hot Topic clothing and Lip Smackers Lip Gloss wipe their tears – Planned Parenthood and Alcoholics Anonymous screamed in horror when they heard that Snookie & JWoww (this generation’s version of Laverne & Shirley) has been picked up for a second season. Not even Andy Cohen and his string of “real” train wreck shows wanted any part of that disastrous duo.

My question is why do we care that Snookie has an I.Q. of an infant and that JWoww’s breasts could keep the entire population of Haiti afloat if set out to sea? By “we” I am referring to our society – to the people watching these shows and keeping these morons relevant in our modern culture. Why do parents let their kids watch their idiotic escapades and laugh when their kids imitate adults who still refer to one another as “bro” and “kid”? Back in the 80’s parents in the United States  thought the world was coming to an end when Madonna rolled around on a stage crooning about a virgin’s reaction to being touched and George Michael reveled in his desire to want your sex. Songs were censored, parents protested, radio stations refused to play songs…Generation X was doomed to a life of debauchery and sleaze! Flash forward to today and people like Snookie, JWoww and the Situation make millions of dollars displaying their ignorance to the world and the world continues to ask for more.

I miss the days when kids had role models like Abraham Lincoln and Toni Morrison and guys like Pauly D were people from the “wrong side of the track.” Yes…I’m officially getting old.
