Oh, goodness. I want to say basically nothing about Occupy Wall Street, because I know close to nothing about Occupy Wall Street and I’d rather not say anything about something that I do try to know about but somehow still feel like I don’t know enough to have even a light conversation about (everything), but I do want to say: I’M SORRY, OCCUPY WALL STREET! You are involved in the dumbest things sometimes and a lot of the time it’s not your fault! You were all over the news that one day because Radiohead, yesterday you were all over the news because Batman, and today you are not exactly all over the news because The Real World, but sill, THIS! From Craigslist:

MTV’s Real World is seeking cast members to tell their unique stories on our show. If you are over the age of 20 and appear to be between the ages of 20-24, and the description below sounds like you, we want to hear from you!

Are you a part of the OCCUPY WALL STREET movement?

If so, please contact [email protected] Your subject heading should be YOUR NAME and WALL STREET.

Please attach 3 RECENT PHOTOS and a brief BIO, including your full NAME, DATE OF BIRTH (for ID purposes only) as well as your CONTACT INFORMATION including PHONE #.

The most upsetting thing about this post, obviously, is that you must “appear to be between the ages of 20-24.” 24 is the cutoff age! THAT’S HOW OLD I AM! I am almost too old to be on The Real World and I haven’t even sent in a tape yet! (If I appeared to be anything close to my age!) (Which I do not, really!) (So I don’t really have a lot to worry about, I’ll probably be able to be on the real world until I start getting wrinkles, at which point I will just look like a child with wrinkles!) The best part of this post is that it says “the description below,” and then that description is JUST that you are a part of Occupy Wall Street. They probably won’t even check? So since this is basically my last chance, here is what I’m sending:
