The Westminster Dog Show

If you’ve turned on your television this week and done any channel-surfing at all there’s a decent chance you’ve at least run into the Westminster dog show. It’s so utterly ridiculous and you can’t help but wonder which is stranger: the people who train their dogs to participate, and who participate themselves, or the television executives who think this is something worth broadcasting.

dogsAnd maybe you also wonder: is there anything else like this – ever – on television?

And then you think.

Hmm: they take these ordinary animals, dress them up in ridiculous costumes, induce them to do things ordinary animals would never do on their own, and then film them doing those strange things they’d never do on their own.

And then it hits you: they DO televise something very similar to this.

It’s called Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
