Let’s Get This Straight…

People. People. If a friend, loved one or family member asks you to be on the Jerry Springer show with you… PLEASE. Stop and think. There is never anything good that comes from being on Springer. Oprah? Sure. Sappy stories that make you cry happen on Oprah. Springer is guaranteed to bring you stories like “I’m sleeping with my daughter’s fiancee” or “Now that we’re married … baby, I’m a man.” How about “I’m a prostitute and my sister’s fiancee pays me to sleep with him.” Things that will make you want to scream. Things that will make you miserable. Do you really want to have that stuff happen on national television?

Although, like the guy said on Springer last week, Jerry Springer is a great humanitarian. Whenever I’m feeling down or like I’m just not good enough – watching this shoe all but guarantees that I’ll feel better about myself when it’s over. Meanwhile, I’ll realize that there are a lot of freaks in this world, and watching Springer is just like slowing down to look at a bad traffic accident.

That’s so true, and as someone who has been asked to be on Jerry Springer I can tell you it’s the truth. At the time a friend of mine asked me to go because Springer was honoring our late night cable access tv show we were doing. So we go, I get stuck at the airport (long story) and when he arrives there’s his ex-wife and his kid and the whole motley crue ready to tell him what a sick fuck he is. So, if they ask you to be on Jerry Springer, don’t even believe whatever they tell you you’re going to be on Jerry Springer for.
