I’d rather be a duck

So I was watching The Swan finale pageant thing, and while all these surgery-altered women pranced around the stage I couldn’t help but feel like this was a reality version of the Stepford Wives. Really. I mean, they all suddenly now have the same top-heavy shape, with perfect teeth, swollen lips (this trend really scares me) and hair extensions. And to turn it all into a pageant where they essentially reward conformity is probably the worst message we could ever send out to kids. I swear I’m never letting my kids watch tv. Except for HBO. I'd rather let them see mobsters killing each other. Oh, and movies about zombies. That's ok too.
