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 things....um.... 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:
"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 Goalie...um...didn'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!
