Okay, you're saying that none of the people looking at the severed finger are forensic scientists...none of the dead bodies are real.
That's fine, but Cylons? Those are real.

that things on TV are not real,

Years ago, I used to live in a flat above a very elderly lady who believed (as far as I could judge, seriously) that all TV was real (especially Coronation Street, a long running UK soap opera).

All of it, that is, except for the news. The news, she told me, is government propaganda.

Hmmmm.....

You might be onto something, though: imagine if the bodies WERE real? A new form of reality TV... maybe I should try to get Lee to write a pilot.

I took a look at Parade's website yesterday, hoping to be able to read Walter Scott's latest, but the bastards don't let you see the current content until it's a week old. We don't get Parade in Canada, you see, which is probably a large part of the reason that Canada is consistently ranked ahead of the US on the list of nice places to live by the commie UN.

Be that as it may, the entire content of Parade reeks of fucktardedness. They should retitle the thing "Parade - the Magazine Of, By, and For Fucktards".

That is absolutely the DUMBEST question I've ever heard. Not just in PARADE. Anywhere.

We owe Tod a great debt of gratitude. He reads this shit so we don't have to.

What I love most about this stupid question is that she offered it as an "A or B" question. The way her question is phrased ignores the possibility of another option.

So, she is so dumb that the option of "actor playing the part" was ruled out or never considered, but "desecrating a corpse" seemed like a logical possibility...

Wow. I've considered being an organ donor, or offering my corpse to a university for students to study. I never considered that CBS might want it!

OH MY GOD! Do you mean to tell me that they don't really kill the actors off so they can perform autopsies on them for the sake of ratings??? I'm aghast! This also means they don't train the actors to actually do the autopsies? Do you mean to tell me that they're all... ACTORS? How can this be? These shows have to be real! Right down to the last dead person who was alive the scene before.

You do realise that this startling revelation will crush people like Britney Spears. It's not every day that someone like her is influenced to go and, like, um, learn, stuff.

This is too much to handle. I think I need to contact my psychiatrist.

Hey, now. Marg Helgenberger is a terrific actress. Caruso is an embarrassment, though.

As for the question, I was kind of hoping it was from an 11-year old or something. Some sixth-grader who's so dreamy and isolated from the world that she gets weird ideas stuck in her head, like "Can I donate my body to William Peterson?"
