I got my first in-person WWKD question today. Which is super exciting and what's even more exciting? The question.
Here we go.
If you had to be on Maury or Jerry Springer which show would you choose and what would the name of the show be?
Excellent question. I thought about this all afternoon. I had to weigh the options...
If I were on Jerry Springer people wouldn't believe what I was saying was true, which would be good. No one wants to be the person that people believe is having sex with a midget stripper that works at the I.H.O.P. It's embarrassing. Everyone knows that Springer is fake. So you can get away with saying whatever. You'll also have to fight though. There's the negative. There would be hair-pulling, someone's tits would be out. It's just what happens. Also, Jerry is condescending to his guests. He acts like he's sooo much better than them even though he's the one that is fostering the behavior. And the dude enters the show on a stripper pole. I mean, come on. You aren't better than any of your guests, Mr. Springer.
Maury. Oh Maury. Most of the stories seem legit. If I brought 12 dudes on to get tested to see if they were the father of my obese baby, people would believe it. They would think I was whoring around so much that I had no clue who the father of my fat baby was. Maury is all about test results. There would have to be a test. Lie detector, paternity. Unless it was some boot camp thing! Sometimes they bring shitty teens on to yell at them and send them to boot camp. About 1/2 the people that enter Maury's set enter flipping off the crowd and yelling at them. I would feel kind of uncomfortable doing that unless they gave me reason. Then there are the people that inexplicably run to the back room after test results are revealed. They know the cameras follow them back there so I don't know what they are running from! Perhaps the antagonistic audience.
Decisions, decisions. I choose Maury. The show would be: I Don't Know Which Carny is the Father of My Obese Baby
WWMD: He would link to THIS.
