Duh Aficionado Magazine: America Does Not Got Talent

While I agree philosophically with the idea that all taste is subjective, I kind of feel like we need to get a Snopes verification on it. Because, sometimes I get the feeling that taste is not subjective at all. At the very least, perhaps we can all agree that there are moments in which something is either good or bad, and that the people who think otherwise are SCIENTIFICALLY wrong. The most obvious example, of course, would be the litter lout who threw the cat in the lorry, who has finally broken her legendary silence and claimed it was a joke. Cool. Cool joke. I’M BEING SARCASM! Another instance would be Prince Poppycock, a current contestant on America’s Got Talent, who is not only a finalist (A FINALIST!) but seems to be beloved by the judges and the audience alike. “Dude” is just killing it! On last night’s episode, he performed a Marie Antoinette powder-faced musical theater version of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” because it’s 2010 and everyone has succumbed to Jose Saramago’s Blindness disease, and also a severe pandemic of Danielle Staub deafism. Also, his name is PRINCE POPPYCOCK!

Nope! (Via People.)
