America's Secret Club

America's favorite TV show has a secret fan club. There are thousands of people who rush home every Tuesday night to watch "American Idol," yet their family, friends and coworkers have no idea what they are doing between 8 and 9pm. "I need to go do my laundry" and "I need to feed my goldfish" are some excuses that are floated around 7:55pm on Tuesdays. Haven't you noticed the people who dash away from the water cooler as soon as the Katharine's knee-humping is mentioned?

This secret fan club exists because I know them. I know they they hide amongst us. Yet, it isn't until after several drinks that their club membership is revealed when they opine about the gray-haired man shaking his moneymaker.

Why are people afraid to admit they like the cutting comments from Simon? Why do they hide the fact that they can't live without seeing Paula's nightly live TV insaity? Don't these people realize that there are few of us who can resist the utter cheese that brings America so much joy?

Next question for next time...Why are there "American Idol" haters out there? How can anyone hate something so simple and wholesome as a singing show?

Well, I would have admitted that I am an unabashed fan, until you referred to Taylor's "moneymaker." **shudder**

(And, as long as I'm on the subject, do white men actually have moneymakers? Most of them are, like, concave back there.)

Some white men have little bubbles. I *think* Taylor is concave but it is too frightening too look....

Bruiser Woods said...

Since when did this become a forum on the white man's burden (aka the lack of junk in his trunk)?

Elle did a wonderful job in this post, but methinks it smacks of Jayson Blair-style reporting. I cannot and will not believe that there are god-fearing Americans who are ashamed to admit their love of AI.

"Knee-humping"? I think I've missed that. Is that on cable, or something? Can I get that in HDTV?

Got too much time on your hands? I just found a choice podcast -- "Idol Minute" by the website IdolsRising.com. A great way to get the latest dirt on America's favorite show as told by a guy who sounds like Cleveland from "Family Guy" all set to a Club Chaos beat.

I considered myself as the professional in this theme, and did not think that I can find in the Internet something new. But having come on your site, I have understood, that I know nothing and it is necessary for me to study and study as much as possible.
