If I could...

smack people for being STUPID, I would.

My poor TV is traumatised today. It's having its turn on the couch today... TV therapy.

I shouted at my poor TV set, I actually had neighbours pop their heads over the wall to see if anything was wrong. Nosy neighbours :-)

Let me start from the beginning. I sat in front of my TV the ENTIRE weekend. I basically only got out of my PJ's this morning. It was lovely and lazy.

I watched the South African version of the:

Now, I understand it must be nerve wrecking being on TV and your brain could feel a little blurred from the nerves. But, I AM SORRY. There is no excuse for stupidity.

The 1st 2 contestants were in high powered careers with excellent degrees. The first lady had a degree in B.Sc. She was stumped on the VERY FIRST QUESTION FOR R1000 and had to use one of the cheats. It was a 1st Grade Animal Science Question: How many legs does a couple of moths have? Her answer: 8.
Ba-bye now! You're outta here!! LOSER!

2nd dude: An ARCHITECT. He used all his cheats in the first few questions. The one he was stumped on: How many sides does a large Hexagon have?

This is this dude: "Hmmm.... I'm not sure if it's large, that could change er.... um...."
WTF? You're an ARCHITECT!!
His answer: 8 sides.

Well that was me, finished. I was jumping up and down on my couch out of frustration. How stupid? I mean seriously. Did they pay these people to be dumb?

Then...a few hours later Bafana Bafana burst onto my screen. They played Tunisia. Well, I WAS THE COACH. Boy, let me at 'em.

I may be female and stereotyped, but Oh. My. God!
I was shouting and jumping up and down...everything short of tearing my hair out.

These were some of my hysterical shrieks:

"Bench him!"

"Shoot!!! Shoooooott!!!!"

"Awwww C'mon!!!! The wing is wide open!!!!"


"Passsss the ball!!!"

"Ok show off...we know you have fancy footwork....we don't give a shit! Score!!!!!!"
plus there were a few profanities thrown around.

It was embarrassing, especially when we handed Tunisia there 3rd goal.

Helloooo?? You have 2 eyes don't you? Maybe you should look before passing. Especially when you're passing to the't it occur to you that maybe there 5 Tunisian players there ready to score? MORON!!

Give ME the coaching job! I wouldn't mind earning a salary higher than the president of this country.
Ok, no seriously. Why are we so bad? What is the problem? Do we have low morale? What's going on. Dude. It's embarrassing!

hahaha I have never watched that show, simply because I'm sure I'd end up yelling at the TV too! I can't watch Who Wants to be a Millionaire, it raises my blood pressure to much. You need a lifeline to figure out the capital of France? YOU SHOULDNT BE ALLOWED TO KEEP THE MONEY!

Shouting at the TV is perfectly natural behaviour. Or so I've told myself repeatedly.

Nothing better than lazing in front of the tv... Nothing worse than being stressed out for doing it!

Mmm...I'm not surprised re: the lack of intelligence on the show & yes, it is highly annoying that some people can't answer those stupid questions!

And on that note: how many sides to a hexagon? I never paid attention in math or science class, so don't shout at me!

As for the's disgusting! I don't get it either?!? Baffles me like you have no idea!

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Hi Non-Blondie! YES!! They should NOT be allowed to keep the cash! Right on! Thanks for popping by x

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Livingladolcevita - I'm so glad to hear that! Phew! I was beginning to wonder if I didn't need to take a trip to the looney bin!!

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Hahahah! Yes, lazing on the couch, getting stressed -there's one of the books! Thanks High in Dubai!!

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Oooh! Throwing things at the TV! Shit! Wish I'd thought of that earlier! Thanks Ruby x

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Awesome Don't believe a word... I'm gonna smack them and then tell them you made me! haha

The Blonde Blogshell said...

LOL @ Kab! A hexagon has 6 sides!

Oh dear maybe we could incorporate Bafana Bafana on the game show: Are you fitter than a 5th Grader! LOL
