Idiocracy Comes to Life

Apologies for the absurdly long image, but it’s worth it. Apparently on a recently episode of America’s Got Talent, one of the talents featured was a guy whose specialty is getting his testicles destroyed for our amusement. Idiotic enough, but the worst part? The judges and audience loved it.

And here we are, marching one step closer to Mike Judge’s Idiocracy. For those who haven’t seen the film (you should), it’s a look at an America overpopulated by the stupid (even more so than now), and the most popular show on TV is “Ow! My Balls!” where unfortunate souls get hit in the balls, which is of course hilarious. And as you can see, we’re fast approaching the same thing in real life. Sigh.

Watch a video of Ow! My Balls! below to see it for yourself.

    If there was a balls channel, and it would still get more views than CNN and MSNBC combined

    And here I thought Stern was going to class up the joint. Need more lesbians, Howard! So, seriously, when do we get “Ass” the motion picture?

  • Caitlin

    I also don’t want to live on this planet anymore…

    and my soul just cried a little bit

  • Skeebo

    A show about freakshows and you’re surprised?

  • DontbeaGoof

    Excuse me while I go cry for a few hours

    I saw idiocracy and was bored to tears. Great idea executed poorly.

    Pretty sure Ow! My Balls already exists on TV under different names. It was called Jackass, Viva La Bam, Wildboyz, Homewrecker, Dr. Steve-O and Blastazoid.

    Though honestly Ow! My balls or whatever the current tv version is called probably has more class than some other shows like Jersey Shore and Flavor of Love. I think we’re past Ideocracy in some regards.

    /Sidenote: Had to look on wikipedia for those names. I can not watch that much stupidity.

    This is so deeply depressing. Idiocracy is a roadmap, not a movie.

  • Giauz

    And just like the many other people who knows these shows are stupid (the internet really only needed one comment and I got the message, amiright!) I haven’t paid any attention to these shows and this is the very first and last time I will ever make reference of them. Let them die in our consciousnesses, people, amiright! (haha, love that)

    I’m wondering who those three jurors (?) in the picture are… some pathetic old man in a wig (or transplants?), who seems to be trying to appear 40 years younger than he is… some ancient woman who looks like a melting wax figure of a 70-year old Wild West saloon prostitute… and some 45-year-old baldy who appears to be going for that classy “20-year-old street drug dealer” look? Who the hell are those three? Some random passers-by, grabbed off the street outside the wherever-the-hell-it-was-filmed TV studio?
