Remember when speaking of Barney, "I love you" came to mind?
Now my cousin likes to sing "I hate you" and many other hateful things towards the purple dinosaur in the same rhythm.
My brother just asks "who's that?" and my friends insist he was arrested for substance abuse.
"Blue's Clues"was the show to watch, and Steve was everyone's friend. Britney Spears was an idol singing about things she did again - oops! And as I recall she seemed to regret it.
Now everyone knows her as the girl who shaved her head, and didn't she kiss a girl?
O, waitthat was Katy Perry. Did you know Katy's father is a preacher?
While we're on religion, remember when people spent forever getting ready for church and dressing their best? Why do it now when you can see Pastor Joe in your pajamas? Even I remember having to get off the computer so my mother could make a phone call, just after it finished its two-minute 'eek' spree.
Disney Channel used to show animated princessesnow we're all SO lucky to see Miley Cyrus/Stewart have an identity crisis.
We watched Nickelodeon to see people get slimed, or a smiley face wishing us a good day. Now all we see is the iCarly gang. There's a good girl, bad girl and their best guy friend who has kissed them both.
If I wanted to see a teen soap-opera I'd watch "The Secret Life of an American Teenager"which doesn't portray teens in this part of the world). But these shows are for kids!
America's test scores are down. People are overweight. The government blames McDonald's and such. Let me add that my spell-check just fixed my spelling of the food franchise. But why would someone spend more money on healthy food when the dollar menu exists, and why take a walk or socialize when I have everything I need on my laptop?
Studying is for people who haven't met Facebook. Vegetables are for vegans/vegetarians. I have my computer on my lap - can you hand me my Big Mac? Do you want to watch "Teen Mom"or "Pastor Joe?" Only in America
Would you like to super-size that?
