Real Time might be the best show on TV
I love great comedy writing (yes, that’s why I hate my writing). It takes a lot of talent to write something funny and make a great point at the same time. Bill Maher and his staff at Real Time do a great job at this.
Here is a quote from Bill’s last show (during his “New Rules” segment) that gives you an idea of what I’m talking about:
New Rule: Stop building “fuck-you-mobiles.” A company called International is offering a pickup truck that is twice as heavy as the Hummer and so bad for the environment you can actually watch the sky falling in your rearview mirror. They call it the “image enhancer” for – quote – “folks who just want more.” In other words, “assholes.” But at a cost of a hundred grand, wouldn’t it just be cheaper to go ahead and get the penis enlargement surgery?
It’s funny because it’s true. There are people or “assholes” out there, who actually buy vehicles just because they know it’s pissing-off some enviromentalist. They don’t even try and come up with that bull-shit primise of acutally NEEDING a vehicle that size because of their family (even though that family is just one bratty-ass kid).
