I came home from my weekly poetry critique group tonight to learn that Chris Allen won American Idol.
Okay, this is crazy. Nothing against Chris Allen, but he shouldn’t have even made the cut last week, let alone win. Against Adam Lambert? I mean, come on!
One of the people in my poetry critique group mentioned that her stepdaughter text-messaged 500 times to the Idol number in two hours last night. This confirms my earlier suspicion from seeing clips from Chris’s hometown parade, that Idol results are controlled by far too many teenaged and adolescent girls with cell phones.
Now I have to go smack my wife for luring me into watching Idol in the first place this month. Yeesh!
