Who do we blame for the downfall of society?

Wow, what a week. If you've been following the Harlequin Horizons debacle, you know what I mean. Soooo not going there....

Instead, I must talk about a dream I had last night. Okay, yes, I get it -- you want to stop reading because other people's dreams are so freaking boring to hear about -- but wait!! This is too bizarre to miss and probably the product of the headache pain relievers I took last night.

I'm sitting in a lecture hall for a media relations class. It's exam day. On the board is a series of essay questions. ACK! I didn't know what any of it meant!! But wait... on the last section of board was an OR question. The essays or we could list seven famous people who contributed to the downfall of our society by association.
Ha! I read gossip blogs. This should be easy:

1. Britney Spears for giving us Kevin Federline (the prof was so pleased he wrote it on the board!)
2. Lindsay Lohan for giving us her wackadoo parents
3. OJ Simpson for giving us the Kardashians (cause really, that's where it all started)
4. John McCain for giving us Sarah Palin
5. Sarah Palin for giving us Levi Johnson

Not sure who's to blame for Speidi or the Hiltons (Paris and Perez!) but I think I should have gotten 2 points for the OJ Simpson link because for a short time we also had to put up with Kato.

Anyway... I woke up before I completed the task and I'd love for you to help me :)

This is tougher than I thought it would be ... who can we blame for Jon & Kate, or the Octomom?

(You realize I'm going to be thinking about this all day instead of concentrating on finishing my NaNo project right? Or is that your evil plan all long?)

Michael Jackson for giving us his idiot father and the 'doctor', Conrad Murray. What a bunch.

Leah... don't think I didn't try to find an Octomom/Jon & Kate link, but it looks as if TLC is to blame for The 8, and The 8 are to blame for Octo.
Thanks for playing :)

Wylie Kinson said...

Julia -- YES! Poor MJ did unwittingly give us his father and Dr. Conrad.
And along those lines... can we blame Anna Nicole for Howard Stern?

Julia Smith said...

I say yea!

Erm...still trying to figure out how Kardashians relate to OJ. I'm just not hip and knowledgable that way. Though I have seen the name a lot on tabloid covers and wondered who these people were, that I should care one way or another that they had overlapping pregnancies or something.

Which makes me think of Wendy Holden, a British author who has a very funny, obnoxious recurring character who is famous for being famous.

Add in Jon and Kate plus 8, I'm so sick of hearing about these two people, ACK!

How funny. :) I think a big part of society's downfall is because Carl Sagan died too young. *sob*

Guess what, my friend -- you have an award on my blog! :-D

ROFLMAO! I think it all started with Howard Stern!

And HAPPY THANKSGIVING, MY WYLIE. Lots of hugs and kisses to the Kinsons.
