You’ll turn on the news and hear about a farmer from a small town who has grown the worlds largest carrot. Flipping through the dateline specials, you’ll sit through an hour-long program about another superstar who couldn’t keep it in their pants or a mom who gave birth to a goat.
I love those shows where people are randomly quizzed on the street about the name of our current vice president. It both amuses and saddens me when most of them say “Al Gore”. I think the best one I’ve ever heard was the answer to the question “what was the date of the 9/11 attacks” is “Uh, sometime in November?” It’s true. See for yourself. This one is also quite amusing and I’d put money on it actually happening. Though if you’re a Mitch Hedberg fan, you’ll know how to react appropriately.
