Disgusting Show Exploiting Disgusting People!!!
16 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

The first couple of times, I would call this horrible excuse for televised entertainment a guilty pleasure, while seeing people being incredibly stupid. Speaking of stupidity, these are without a doubt....MORONS!

Why, you ask? Simply because they come on national f*%king television to reveal to the nation or 42% of it, meaning people with a double digit I.Q.'s that you're a whore, a drunken wife beater, or a immature loser or whatever the case maybe.

Every time I turn to this "Circus From Hell!" there's always single mother(who's under 30 years of age) with like 9 kids and she doesn't have a goddamn clue to who's the father of any of them. Okay! Haven't these inbred, trailer park, knuckle-dragging dicks or these ghetto-ass bozos ever heard of friggin' contraceptives? It's like these people never socially evolved with rest of the human race!

The show becomes predictable every time Maury "the ringmaster"Povich reads the DNA tests aloud and it's not to the mother's liking, she runs off-stage wailing something like: "Oh Lawd!" and collapses into a heap and convulses like a damn seizure victim. While the so-called boyfriend jumps for joy like a clown. "Please! You knew what would happen if you screwed more people than the IRS!"

Speaking of whores, this the same thing goes with those reckless teen brats they scuttle onto the show. Why are their mothers cowering behind their tears, whimpering and whining like some 4-year-old? It's called "parenting"! You suppose to discipline your children not let them run amok dressing(or in this case un-dressing) like Paris Hilton! "Where the hell are their fathers in all this mess?" What made them flip like this? They all say the same selfish, whiny, and utterly mindless ranting nonsense: "My mother's bitch, my mom's slut, my mom's a whore" and so on and so on. Why? Because she won't let you buy the new 50-Cent CD, buy a 27-inch plasma screen TV, or screw some scumbag with a mullet in his Camaro Z28 or some brotha' in an Escalade. "Stop me if I'm wrong: but if your future plans only include partying, sex, and annoying the locals at 3 a.m. while in a intoxicated stupor; aren't you the slut/bitch/whore and not your mother. What makes matters worse, some of these mutants want a child! It's like any of these bastards(parents or children) never heard of parental guidance, common sense,or the real world. But what really pisses me off is the fact that Maury displays the handicapped like they're attractions in a circus side show. Why? because they don't have arms and/or legs, or maybe even a face. These are human beings that don't deserve this kind of exploitation. Parading them around to an audience of complete idiots pretending to be sympathetic is worse than any bullying.

But in my opinion, this show has an agenda up it's sleeve.

Agenda #1: If you have a rare deformity and/or disease you are an attraction for all to see. "When in reality you only get stares and a few disses, eventually people do get used to it."

Agenda #2: single mothers are scum and/or the mothers of scum. Really? To boost ratings(along with the news), it jumps onto the fear bandwagon pumping these retarded lumps of lard full of shock and awe. "By showing ten year old videos of cars accidents, explosions, and robberies by young black men and scruffy white-trash that have been aired on FOX hundreds of times before as if they are happening now!

Agenda #3: Be afraid of going outside, cars,teenagers, and black people. This is a sad, pathetic, and tasteless excuse for a television show! At least Jerry Springer doesn't exploit people with deformities. "This should be the worst television show in history!"
