I enjoyed this e-mail:
Subject: Well, at least I’ve heard of ABC
“ABC really deserves some grief for the Adam Lambert performance last night during the American Music Awards:”
Yikes. I haven’t the foggiest beginning of a clue who Adam Lambert is (although I’ve heard the name) and what the American Music Awards are (they don’t even sound familiar).
But then I realized last week not only that Oprah Winfrey’s talk show has been on since I was in high school but that I’ve never, ever seen it. (I saw her in The Color Purple, though.)
People watch too much TV.
