WTH Wednesday

Fox News Calls Mister Rogers An Evil Man The above video by Fox news is based on the published study; Blame It on Mr. Rogers: Why Young Adults Feel So Entitled by Don Chance a fiance professor at LSU; apparently Mr Rogers has taught a generation of kids that they were special. And they aren't. Don Chance claims that by Mr Rogers telling kids they are "special" just the way they are has raised a whole generation of self entitled losers. Hear that parents???? Your kids are looooosssseeeerrrs. During the Fox News special report (I snicker every time I say that) Mr Rogers was evil because... ".... By telling children they’re special just for being who they are, he helped create this generation of worthless, lazy socialists who think they’re entitled to health care … " Oh noes. Having grown up with Mr Rogers, the original Electric Company (not the crap show they have on now...WTH is THAT?), and other PBS shows I am apparently a self absorbed lazy worthless loser that would have been better off ..."Making my own butter and knitting sweaters." Huh? I hate butter. Sheesh. Of course, this is FOX NEWS. The station that takes only those who can't make it anywhere else. Hey....maybe THEY watched Mr Rogers too.

If any kid show is evil it would have to be Teletubbies. Effing weird man. Leave the sweatered man alone, ya'll! But then again I never watched him, I was too busy watching Price is Right, All My Children and The Lone Ranger re-runs. Perhaps I am a bargin shopping, dramatic, damsel in distress? Or maybe I am none of those things and Fox is only good for non reality tv? Yeah I'll go with the last one.

UNFINGBELIEVABLE! I also grew up with all the PBS shows in Spanish, mind you, and now MR. Rogers is getting the sh*t thrown at hime after how many years of being gone? OMG!
Next thing you know, Pedro's Plant Place (Electric Company, woot!) was really growing weed and was sending out subliminal messages to buy that special 'good feeling plant'.
