Evil Genius

I'm not going to try and excuse this comedy sketch. It's a malignant, vituperative attack on blue-collar mores and it made me cringe with embarassment. I was also trying so hard not to laugh that I nearly choked on my own fist.

If I was just 5% more evil I would be that guy.

Meheh, love the last line.

I have the same reaction to a lot of the 'talent' that appears on talent shows. And there is an underlying moral that applies to all of us (well, me, anyway): wanting to do something well takes learning and practice, hard lessons and hard graft.

At the same time I have the sense that a lot of talent shows deliberately pick people who are laughably bad; they seem designed to appeal to our desire to take pleasure in others' lack of talent, failure and bad fortune.

Oh yes, it's all about schadenfreude!
