Wallpaper and Fever Dreams, Part Deux…
Posted January 20, 2016on:
Or in the world of Donald Trump, Part Second.
In our little corner of the internet, we were a full forty-eight hours ahead of the news curve talking about the covalent bonding of politics and reality teevee. From the article: “It’s so easy these days to go out there and become an Internet conservative celebrity by saying some things, and who cares if it’s true or makes any sense. And there’s no incentive to ever really bother with reality or to compromise. There’s no money, ratings or clicks in everyone going along to get along.”
So in the spirit of Jeannie living in a magic bottle on Capt. Nelson’s coffee table, Laura Petrie contorting her face and crying, “Oh, Rob,” or even Samantha finding the right Dick to play her husband Darrin, (York not Sargent) yesterday we saw the merger of two reality brands in a real life Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars. If only “Malaria” and former Alaskan first Dude weren’t in the way of the inevitable synergy.
Had Sarah and Donald met on Match.com or eHarmony there would have been undeniable compatibility in the:
(1) Ability to free associate without the use of commas, periods, or pauses;
(2) Hate for a certain darker-skinned occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue;
(3) Deep and abiding love of self;
(4) Traffic stopping self-gratification requiring only a mirror; and
(5) Absolute, total, world-class cluelessness.
It is indeed a rare event in which the post just writes itself and today is one of those extraordinary times. Already Sarah has missed the stage call for a Trump rally and inquiring minds are wondering if Sarah picked up her check and called it a day. I thought it might be entertaining if we try our collective hand at writing a Marriage Boot Camp blurb like those the program uses to fluff and flog itself.
Here are the barebones and if you are so inclined, please fill-in the blanks. You can cut and paste the paragraph into your comments if you want.
This season, a celebrity couple, Sarah and Donald fight for their political relevance under the weight of a vicious tabloid scandal, _______________________. Before their honeymoon is over an unimaginable background truth emerges that ____________________, sending their world spiraling into chaos.
The drama unfolds on the campaign trail as the fighting begins. Marriage Boot Camp is their last resort, but _____________________. Once thought to be America’s picture perfect political sweethearts, the murky truth is that ___________________.
If your interest lies beyond our little Sarah and Donald workshop, please don’t hesitate to take the conversation in any direction you might deem worthy.
Have a great Wednesday and let your creative genius shine.
