The three people left in the world who still think that the “reality” in “reality TV” means “real” or “unmade-up,” I present to you the following:
The words “reality” and “television” don’t really belong together.

Just keep looking at the shiny objects, folks. Don’t worry about the guy in the suit who is robbing you blind, taking your pension, emptying the US treasury, cutting your wages, outsourcing your jobs… nah, none of that matters. Just keep looking at the pretty pictures, they are what is real….
