Patton Oswalt on Root Of All Evil explaining why High School is more evil than American Idol:
American Idol is where people go to be judged, humiliated and pigeonholed. But where did they learn how to do that? They learned it in high school. Here’s an idea. Let’s take teenagers when they’re full of explosive hormones and unplanned erections, skin eruptions and violent mood swings – we’ll put them in an airless government bunker where they’ll be forced to read The Scarlet Letter, have lunch at 10:00am, and shower together. If that’s not a Home Ec casserole of evil with a potato chip crust of despair, I don’t know what is!
