Sorry Wrong Number

I actually felt sorry for the survey taker at the other end of the telephone:

Could I speak to the lady of the house?

The only ladies in the house are cats.

Could I speak to the man of the house?

Speaking.

-Hollywood is terrible and not “family friendly” and putting pornography on television, don’t you think?

I wouldn’t know, I don’t watch television and haven’t for over a decade.

Movies are all about obscenity…

I don’t go to movies either.

How about the danger to your children and grandchildren?

Sorry, life-long bachelor.

The Dove Foundation survey is on-line.

I was nice, I didn’t get into how nothing is located in Hollywood anymore, and most of the production in North America takes place in Canada. I didn’t talk about the centers in Orlando, Atlanta, and Tokyo. I didn’t ask her why the Dove Foundation wasn’t doing something important, rather than carping about TV and movies.

She did give up, and I didn’t have to endure the entire spiel.

Looks like a push poll.

Quacks like a push poll

It *is* a push poll!

I checked out the site. Somehow, I suspect my answers may not make it into the averages.

They were definitely trying to “push”, but they hit a major roadblock with me.

They could be using their money to rebuild houses or churches on the Gulf Coast instead of worrying about the entertainment industry.

Yep… I had these folks one time -began to reverse their questions about WHO were they, WHY weren’t *rating systems* enough to deal with movies or shows (let parents police thier kids), What business they had deciding what adults might watch…he hung up on me – and I nevah understood WHY. *snark*

My stock answer: “No. My problem with Hollywood is that there isn’t enough f*cking pornography on television. I want porn on every channel, broadcast and cable, 24/7!!!”.

I expect that would be a very short call.

Since all of the Democrats in my county fit on the top line of a 3X5 card you would think we would be on a do not call list for these people.

If they are looking for numbers to impress someone on these issues, calling in my area code would definitely provide the results they are looking for, although it doesn’t explain the strip clubs and “adult” stores located here year round.

Irony rusts in the presence of such minds.
