There’s actually a grass roots movement to pull Kim Kardashian from the tube, like forever. Which basically means for the rest of the season, I’m guessing. They’ve got a petition going, which makes it official. Tell you what I’d like to petition- grass roots movements. They’ve become the new singles bars.
The fool proof dating slump buster? Start a grass roots movement. You can meet new people, you’re doing everything on the cheap. And I don’t think you have to use your legal name. It’s like Vegas- Home Version.
Problem is, they’re actually serious about this Kim Kardashian petition. When asked Why 2K? the organizer responded:
“We feel that these shows are mostly staged and place an emphasis on vanity, greed, promiscuity, vulgarity and over-the-top conspicuous consumption.
Wait a minute, are they talking about Meet the Kardashians or American Idol? Or most anything else you can dial up on television? That’s why I canceled my cable subscription. Because by the time I would sit down at night to partake of the gratuitous sex and violence, I was too tired to enjoy it!
Insanity, meet inanity. Cause on top of that petition, there is another petition going around to get Kim Kardashian’s role in a Tyler Perry film pulled. I have an unofficial petition against Tyler Perry flicks, so I’m just going to have to read about the results of this in Variety.
Seriously, I don’t think get the urgency to blacklist Kim Kardashian from any acting gigs. Her ability, or lack thereof, is more powerful than any petition you can find.
Duly inspired, I am going to start up a petition against petitions. I’m not sure what locale I will occupy in order to further this movement. Rest assured, it will be a place with running water, friendly beverages and high def televisions wrapping every square inch of the perimeter. Hopefully, one of them will be tuned in to Meet the Kardashians.
