What's worse? MySpace or American Idol? How about a website that finds all the MySpace pages for those aweful American Idol contestants (you know- the ones we are supposed to laugh at because they suck)?

I'd link to American Idol, or even MySpace, but WHY?

I was just thinking that -- I can't tell whether you made the right decision or not.

Not linking was the best decision. There's plenty of links to myspace in the primary link.

However, I'm wondering if not posting the primary link would have been wise, too. It's like 50 pounds of hate in a 3 oz safety sippy cup in there.

Those who don't have the talent... criticize!

I'm worried about Paula, guys.

you pose a question~

Whats worse?
People who we make fun of?

...or a post about people who we make fun of?

My question:

why?

just because a link excels at sucking does not make that link best of the web

The link might have been interesting* if it included clips of each person's appearance on American Idol — but it doesn't, so unless you watched the show and recognize these people, it's just a bunch of links to random folks' MySpace pages.

* But probably not.

Here is latest hottest rumor about what Paula said !
You suddenly arose, and walk'd about,
Musing and sighing, with your arms across,
And when I ask'd you what the matter was,
You stared upon me with ungentle looks;
I urged you further; then you scratch'd your head,
And too impatiently stamp'd with your foot;
Yet I insisted, yet you answer'd not,
But, with an angry wafture of your hand,
Gave sign for me to leave you: so I did;
Fearing to strengthen that impatience
Which seem'd too much enkindled, and withal
Hoping it was but an effect of humour,
Which sometime hath his hour with every man.
It will not let you eat, nor talk, nor sleep,
And could it work so much upon your shape
As it hath much prevail'd on your condition,
I should not know you, Brutus. Dear my lord,
Make me acquainted with your cause of grief.

I'm worried about Paula, guys.

Why not worry about somebody important, like me?

(actually that blonde he linked to is kinda hawt. I'm disappointed that he didn't find pages for that meerkat looking dude and the aft mildly-retarded guy with the striped shirt. They were lousy singers, but the friendship they struck up was genuinely sweet. They made kind of a cool team. Maybe they could fight crime or something)

"meerkat looking dude" - You mean the one that looked like the unholy union of Peter Lorre with a Slow Loris?
