My wife LOVES American Idol. I have no idea why. While I do find the first couple of weeks of each season amusing – the part where every jackass in America tries to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that being tone-deaf is worthy of TV time – I loathe the series! This season is no different.

Except, maybe, that the contestants suck even more than the previous years. The girl from Tennessee is the one exception. But otherwise… grrrrrr…

The beatbox kid is an arrogant prick. The gender-repressed Indian kid is flippin’ irritating beyond words – including his damn hair. And am I the only one who thinks that that Lakisha girl looks like Sigmund the Sea Monster???
