How long until the Rock becomes too pretentious for mainstream audiences? It won’t be long before all movie scripts will be required to use only monosyllabic words. Although many studios have already adopted this practice voluntarily.
Via The Daily Mash:
CULTURE is reaching a point of maximum dumbness, it has been claimed.
Professor Henry Brubaker said: “Most television is about cooking, the paranormal or poor people having arguments. The news is just opinions punctuated with pictures of ‘extreme weather’.Researchers at the Institute for Studies have warned that it will soon be impossible to dumb down news and entertainment media any further.
“The only books being published are ghost-written celebrity biographies or thrillers about serial killers called things like ‘The Face Collector’. Apart from that people just read lists of ’10 facts about muscle growth’ off websites.
“The problem is that although our culture cannot get any stupider, human intelligence may continue on its downward trajectory.
“The result will be a world in which nobody understands anything. Even a film about The Rock driving a jeep into explosions will leave viewers confused and angry at its pretentiousness.”
However TV channel boss Mary Fisher said: “Don’t worry, I’ve just commissioned Jamie & Jimmy’s Paranormal Antiques Auction Sex News.
“And I’m confident we can go even lower. We must keep striving to find new depths of idiocy.”
