Haven’t you heard? Bras are now National News

August 10, 2010

At the gym this morning, I glanced at the television to see two men on Fox & Friends interviewing three Victoria’s Secret models in all of their luscious glory.

I’m sure those two had some mighty fights on their hands in order to receive those coveted interviewing chairs.

And, I’d like to interject that the topic was completely male appropriate.

Apparently Victoria’s Secret is unveiling a new bra . . . .
Yes, you heard me right: the PhD genuises at a top news organization decided that its viewers’ time would be best spent listening to two googly-eyed males ask three beautiful, but not the greatest at intelligent talk, women about cup sizes, adjustable straps and adequate support.

Are you kidding me?

No, sadly Fox & Friends was not kidding, and neither am I.

Maybe Fox researchers decided that America has had enough political, environmental, military and terrorist discussions to last us till 2020, so let’s add in a little fluff fun for the masses.

And, if that was their thought, they’re right to a certain extent.

Let’s not forget too that Fox & Friends is far from the most highly respected nor reliable source of news information. And they don’t tout themselves as such–for the most part. So I guess that merits them some acknowledgement.

However, that does not in some way allow them license to use a somewhat-credentialed national news service in order to make a mockery of the American people.

But, then again, I guess that’s never stopped them before.

And, frankly, if I were from a foreign nation,–oh, how I wish I was–and I ran across that broadcast, I would cackle all week long about the laughableness that has become our nation.

    Hmmm,

    My human feels the same way; what has become of our nation? He’s a little older has traveled to over 80 countries including the USSR when it was in existence. He says he’s seen what others have lived under and hopes we don’t go there. His only comment after reading your note was, “everyone is entitled to their opinion in this country….at least for now.”

      It’s nice to hear from a new reader! You look like a Labrador? Your owner sure has done a lot of traveling! And he’s right that we have it pretty good in the US. I’m grateful to live here, but the amount of ignorance and surface-ness that our country seems to encourage in young Americans saddens me. It seems like other affluent countries tend to foster more pride in their inhabitants. But I’m sure I’d find the same amount of apathy elsewhere if I were to look for it!
