George The Physics Major Humiliates The American Idol Judges

A tipster who watches American Idol alerted us to George Ramirez, the bearded, earnest (or is he?), honest American Idol contestant from Tuesday’s show. The show was clearly trying to paint George as an odd nerd who didn’t belong there, but I think everything about George’s audition was embarrassing not to him but to the judges. The world has changed, Simon Cowell. Your bread-and-butter method of humiliation-as-entertainment is becoming obsolete. And deep down, you know it. All hail George Ramirez! May his dreams of marble floors come true:

Just look at the judges faces! If they’re so superior, why is there fear behind their eyes? (Also: Tallahassee represent!) (Thanks to Alexander for the tip.)
