TV Hits New Lows

The 2006 Mike Judge/Luke Wilson comedy Idiocracy featured a futuristic world where the collective IQ is significantly lower and the most popular television program is called "Ow! My Balls!". Upping the ante on the fictional-reality show is the actual-reality show Hurl offered by the G4 network Unbelieveable. I hope that they yank this off the air before any intelligent space aliens pick it up and determine that we are unworthy to share the meaning of life. The show, by the way, is not to be confused with the decidedly more intelligent and socially-meaningful HURL and Hurl.

Incidentally, Idiocracy is a scathing look at American culture that is definitely worth renting if you haven't seen it. Read more about it here.
