Super Sabado Sensacional!

“‘Iraq’ is Arabic for ‘Vietnam’.”

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but it boggles the mind.

So, I was just watching Telefutura (formerly known as Telemundo; when did THAT happen?) and they were dancing. But IT WAS THE NEWS!

Aye, Dios Mio! Donde esta? Come on, people! What is with the dancing? I get that you’re a rhythmic people, but let’s dial it down a notch. You dancing while telling me about that train crash ain’t gonna lessen the blow. It just makes you seem insensitive and it makes me hate you.

But I guess that’s moot since they never cover real news anyway. In the world of Spanish television, there seems to be nothing but singers and soap stars. These shows spend an hour just showing video footage of Lorenzo Lamas leaving a restaurant. Yup, the Renegade himself. Oh, and don’t forget the soccer, I mean “football”. GOOOOOOAAAAAALLLLLL!

Well, gotta go. They just stopped dancing, and I think Angel’s about to introduce some footage of Ricky Martin buying soap.
