Yesterday morning, for reasons I'm still slightly unsure of, I suffered through the Live with Kelly program. Good morning television at its most stereotypical and intellectually limited best/worse.
There was a man from a zoo on with nocturnal animals. The hostess, for reasons I will never understand, was smelling her hands after handling the animals. o.O The zoo chappy brought out a beautiful orange and white milk snake. That's when we learned that the hostess was unable to understand the difference between poisonous and venomous. I never realized that was a difficult concept to grasp. What do I know?
Then there was the sidekick/chap in a suit, who was left holding the milk snake. The audience shrieked and made all sorts of horrified lady noises as the snake slowly wound her way around the chap's neck. Snakes like warm. The collar of a suit coat would be warm. Hello!
I know. I know... I'm using the earth logic again. One should not do such silly things while watching a tv show clearly aimed at people who believe that a woman's place is in the kitchen and that colors can have a gender. Because this was very clearly that sort of program.
It really makes me wonder what the archeologists will make of us in two thousand years when they only have our trash and hard drives to figure us out. It gives me a headache just thinking about it.
