I tire of the Kardashians
The wanna-bes and might-have-beens
The housewives of the suburbs wealthy
Are caricatures of the less than healthy
Today the news broke with a sigh
That Justin Bieber ‘s camera shy
He decked a photographer while in LA
Then promptly left to tour Norway
Let’s not address the hostile drone
That Gaga’s a Madonna clone
Tom Cruise has a four octave range
He may be cute, but he’s also strange
I swear to you this all made the news
My ears just ache, my brain feels bruised
If this represents what we want to know
I think a desert island’s the way to go.

Honey, I am *right* there with ya on this one! Honestly, what constitutes ‘news’ and ‘success’ these days just floors me…. Thx for the midday giggle. 🙂
Funny! Sad, but oh so true…
I send you a fist bump my friend!! I’m glad it made you giggle. I swear this stuff is just so ridiculous it amazes me that it is given a moment’s air time. If this is reality tv, I need a channel catering to the fantastic, for this is no reality I know! 🙂
Very nice, I love it. And congrats on your 100th post.
Thank you Deana! I’m so glad you got a giggle out of it! 🙂
I am packed and ready to go. A dessert island sounds divine. Just say when, I’ll bring the wine. Thanks for today’s smile and the neck exercise as I kept nodding with each line you wrote. Great blog. Happy 100th blog! Here’s to no less than 100 more! ❤
Let’s go Jo – I’m ready…:-) Thank you for the good wishes..I’ll try for 100 more!
I’ve been ready to go!
There has to be an island for us misfit toys, who don’t find any of this reality entertainment entertaining. 🙂
There is an Island somewhere in time. We are not misfits ! They ARE ! Mimi, Just want to let you know that i’m nominating you for the beautiful blogger award, and you can come check out the nomination here. http://wp.me/pCKFt-hx thanks!
I could not agree more with you!
Thanks – I think we’re all going to have to find an island somewhere… 🙂
I am with you all the way Mimi….it amazes me that this is the news? Island life sounds pretty good 🙂
I’m tellin’ you – there’s an island with our name on it!
Hilarious. I wholeheartedly agree.
This is great! More than half of the things you wrote about I know very little of since I don’t ever watch live TV and get my news snippets from the internet. TV and the news is mostly negative attempts to shock – a waste of energy if you ask me. Although I do sometimes feel like I am living under a rock. Now a desert island, that sounds pretty nice. 🙂
p.s. Congratulations on your 100th post.
I think you’re informed by NOT listening to the news!! Desert island – I’m going to start googling..Thanks for the congratulations too!
I agree! Congrats on the 100th post.
I wrote a post about moving to an island at some point. So I must say I totally agree. Island. Hands down. Congrats on the 100th!
I’m researching ‘islands – deserted’ later today. Thank you for the congrats – I’m triple digits – sigh…
Awesome and so true! I love it!
Thank you so much!!! Hope it gave you a giggle!
a humorous, inspiring and uplifting 100th post! more power!
Thank you so much!
