Most Photographed Everything in America

I think maybe there are a lot of things in our USA-style American culture that are sort of like the most photographed barn in America. There are so many voices screaming so loudly from our televisions everyday, telling us what is important. Oprah, Dr. Phil, those ladies on the View, everyone seems to be freaking out about something all the time. Let's freak out about Tom Cruise. Let's freak out about Tom Cruise freaking out. Let's freak out about the new movie with the -- you're not going to believe this --vampires.

Why are these people on TV? Because everyone is watching. Why is everyone watching? Because they're the people on TV. The funny thing is that a lot of what people talk about on TV has to do with being on TV. I think that's funny.
