Survivor: Whaaa??!!

without comments

Yesterday, while driving from my stock brokers office to a golf date with my accountant, I happened upon some excellence in broadcasting delivered by Rush Limbaugh (no link-sorry, dittoheads). I thought he was being typically hyperbolic when he began talking about how contestants on the new season of Survivor would be organized into race based teams. Of course Rush couldn’t help himself and joked about how the African American team wouldn’t win any swimming events. Ha ha ha. I laughed so hard I had to slap my thigh.

I thought no more of it until this morning when I surfed onto MSNBC and lo and behold were two yelling heads “debating” this very factoid.

Suddenly, I knew what I had to do. I googled Survivor and found this in Lord Black’s favorite Chicago tabloid:

The new season of ”Survivor” will be a race among races.

At the start of the reality show’s 13th edition, ”Survivor: Cook Islands,” 20 contestants will be organized into four tribes divided along ethnic lines — black, white, Hispanic and Asian, CBS announced Wednesday.

I can’t wait for next season when Survivor pits Catholics, Baptists, Orthodox Jews and Sunni Muslims against each other.
I feel like boycottin’ me some sponsors. Who’s with me?

Full disclosure: I have never watched more than 5 continuous minutes of Survivor or any other reality tv show. So what do I know?
