never forget!

Until you, um . . . forget. Jiminy Christmas, these people! And they're New Yorkers!! I have to admit, as one of those dumb and ignorant southern okies, I take a degree of pleasure in observing the stupidity of Yankees, only because y'all are generally convinced of our stupidity (I'm not defending our brand of stupid, just pointing out here that we're not alone). Amazing. The only good thing is with more nitwits like these, the power of the Republicans screeching 9/11 9/11 9/11 will diminish.

Don't assume they are all New Yorkers, we have plenty of clueless souls all over the country. Every watch Jay Leno do a "Jaywalking" segment on the Leno show? On the streets in the L.A. area, and most people are just as clueless.

It's a sad commentary on our schools and on the fact that much of the media panders to the most base of all instincts (I am so tired of crotch shots of Britney "Trailver Trash" Spears assaulting my eyes.)

Wow! this is pretty scary!!
Even down here 'at the bottom of the world' (yes the pun was intentional!!) we are better informed than these dozohs!!
The fact that they couldn't even remember the date!!!! Ahhhh..9/11..although it's just so 'yesterday'!!

Whateva?

I asked Jay Leno for his autograph when he came to Richmond to talk. He's very affable, and surprisingly good looking. Anyway, when I told him I wanted to go Jay walking with him, he looked at me as if I was a dumb blond.

Ha!

Also bear in mind that they probably interviewed ten times as many people in order to get the responses they broadcast. I take these things with a grain of salt. There will always be stupid people.

As a citizen of "that other city" that was hit on 9/11, that was truly frightening to watch.

If you want to know why so many people in the world hate Americans, I have two words for you ...

... and those words are "rich" and "stupid."

Funny, Brits love to exploit the stupidity of Americans even more than Yankees like to exploit the stupidity of southerners. Pecking order.

I guess this is scary, but I have to say that I have lived in Manhattan for ten years and it is a constant obstacle course. You walk out your door and you are barraged by oncoming pedestrians, bike messengers, people handing out fliers, wanting you to sign some petition, asking you for change, to adopt their cat...etc.. Sometimes just walking from point a to point b has to be...well... strategic. Strategy takes brain power...sometimes it takes ALL the brain power. Now add some dildo with a mic to the picture and you've got a bunch of city people trying to dodge life and answer questions that should come as naturally as a fart all at THE SAME TIME (!!) All they while thinking THIS MIGHT BE ON TV! (Scary!) I hate to say it, but caught off guard on the street like this in the middle of a work day or on an early morning and I might be saying some strange things too. Or telling the guy to fuck himself, and very much. Love you, Lynette. :)
