Did I Make the School Play?

I am so sick of the reality “audition” shows. Why is it that our society has this fascination with making the school play.  I just saw a commercial for “So You Think You Can Dance” and one of the judges says “JUST LEAVE THE AUDITORIUM!!!!” to some dancer. It made me think that this is high school drama club all over again. Do we have some weird fascination with being in the high school play? I don’t think we do, I think that Hollywood thinks we do. So they just schedule this shit over and over and over. Government should ban it. Like it was a sub-prime mortgage. Good in the short term, but now this crap is ruining lives.
