The Game Show People Are Getting Desperate
I just heard an advertisement on the radio about a TV game show called Identity where you have to guess among a bunch of strangers who is a fashion model or Nobel Prize winner, etc. My first thought was that this was stupid. You know they’re going to trick you by not pandering to the stereotype. The blue-haired lady with the poodle? She doesn’t knit–she runs a tattoo parlor in Santa Monica. The person who won first place in the National Knitters Competition is the buff guy in biker leathers. Asian guy with glasses? He’s the hip hop artist. The physicist you’re looking for is the blonde popping the bubble gum.
