Shilpa Shetty and Jade on Celebrity Big Brother

You thought you wouldn't read the recent post about Bollywood B-lister, Shilpa Shetty, on the UK's "Celebrity Big Brother". You thought, "Oh, I'm too highbrow for that trash." You figured it was just a silly TV show. WRONG. Shilpa Shetty is the catalyst for the UK to transform into full-blown CHILDREN OF MEN-style apocalypse! Right there on the cover of the Sun, one of the UK's sleazier papers, right between the tortured poetry of  "Sienna - Love Rat Torment" and "Posh - No sects please" is a massive feature on "CELEB BB: WORLD IN CRISIS"!

"Celebrity Big Brother" has everyone in a twist. Bookies have Jade at 1:50 odds to be the next contestant booted out of the house! Shilpa says "It IS racist"! Channel 4 says, "No it's not, and please don't make us cancel our failing show that's suddenly jumped up by a million viewers. Please." Effigies of the producers are being burned in the streets. The PRODUCERS! A police probe is in the works! Tony Blair is issuing statements about the show! There's even a one-armed lesbian involved and she says of Shilpa: “She is an Indian. Listen, I also called her the S-word hundreds of times but I never said it to her face."

I implore you, go read these links or when this one goes nuclear you're going to be fighting for your life over a can of beans and not even know the reason why.

What is the 's' word?

there was a producer for the show on the news reading a statement yesterday, with what amounted to him saying that everyone should stay out of the arguments and that the only people who could truly decide if there was racism in the house were the viewers and that they could have their say by voting with their telephones.

very clever... not only did you not manage to convince anyone that there's no possible interpretation of racism in the house, you made your explanation commercial venture too. now, according to the rules of the house, if someones is seen as behaving in a racist manner they are kicked out. problem is, with three people having walked out and so many remaining people potentially behaving in a racist fashio, the removal of those people would make the show collapse. that's why they dare not pin down any opinion and carry out their duty towards the contestants, the companies involved, the public, international relations etc... it would be the end of the show.
