– It’s like this. You wake up. Then you watch TV. You get in the car, then you listen to the radio. Then you go to you little job or your little school but we’re not gonna hear about that on the 6pm news.
Why? Because nothing is really happening
Then you go home and watch some more TV. Or maybe it’s a fun night, and you go out and you watch a movie. I mean it’s got so bad, that half the time the people on TV, inside the TV, they’re watching TV. And what are all these people watching?
People like me.
And what are all you doing right now? You’re watching me. Don’t you think you would have changed the channel by now if all I did was getting “A” in geometry?
