Incompetence goes national

There seems to be a bit of conjecture over this story at the moment. Apparently some TV producer is no longer content with setting up cameras at random Gold Coast locations and filming the "world's worst drivers" as they usually would, they want to find people who are too incompetent to even get a licence and see if somehow broadcasting their incompetence nationally might "cure" them.

Of course, it's a very stupid idea -- these people don't need to make idiots of themselves on national TV. Any fool who can't get a licence in Sydney or Melbourne normally needs only to move to Queensland to get one -- as anyone who has seen the rampant incompetence on the roads in this part of the would will attest. Maybe the entire show is based on a false pretence to begin with, much like every other so-called "reality TV" show. I could complain on and on about it, but it's much more fun (and no less effective) to just aim at ridicule.

It seems the main objective of "reality TV" seems to be making viewers with small penis issues somehow feel talented, intelligent and good-looking, by showing them the absolute dregs of society. Fortunately, I already am talented, intelligent, good-looking and suffering from absolutely none of the aforementioned issues whatsoever. Consequently, I'm going to steal a march on the producers by voting the entire cast of the show off my TV with the "off" button before they've even set up the voting mechanism (if there is one).

I think I'm on a winner here.
