Okay, here goes for the Dumb Debbie Question of the Day:
Is it just me . . . or is there a palpable problem with FOX having the three stars of depraved, disgusting raunch-fest “Superbad” as presenters at the “Teen Choice Awards” (tonight on FOX)? (Yes, that includes “McLovin.”)
After all, the movie is rated “R,” which means that the bulk of the teen audience to whom the awards show is aimed (sorry, but normal kids over 14 don’t watch the lame show). Every other word in “Superbad” is bleep-mandatory, and as I wrote in my review, this perverted movie makes “Porky’s” sound like a G-rated Disney movie. It’s more like “Playboy Forum.” Most teens can’t go to this movie without a parent. And the parents who allow their children to go–or, more bizarre, accompany them to it–are warped.
To make my point, here are a couple of things you see in “Superbad”:
* The main character dances with a woman at a party who is not wearing underwear. He gets a giant stain of menstrual blood on his jeans near his crotch.
* The main character has an obsession with drawing pictures of penises and testicles. They show you the many, many, many, many warped photos.
Yup, just the kinda stuff 13-year-olds need to be exposed to.
So, why is Rupert Murdoch’s FOX promoting this movie and its three uber-nerdy stars on a show aimed at early teens and pre-teens?
Don’t expect Bill O’Reilly to grill his boss on that. Who’s looking out for you . . . and your kids?
Not FOX or Murdoch.
What’s next–the cast of “Deep Throat Returns” hosting the show? I hear Hillary-fans Heidi Fleiss and newly-retired Jenna Jameson are available, too.
Boy do I miss “Revenge of the Nerds.”
**** UPDATE: Unfunny “comedian” Dane Cook just won an award and cursed a storm. He used the S-word and some other words, all of which were bleeped out. Way to go, Dane.
**** UPDATE #2: Multiple-arrestee, drug dealer and user, and “former” pimp Snoop Dogg makes an appearance. Ditto for equally execrable rapper Ludacris. Thanks again, Rupert. Just what the average 11-year-old needs to be exposed to. And um, Mr. Murdoch, it makes the multiple anti-drug PSAs you’re running during the show a bit hypocritical.
