I'm not sure how many people were aware of Mark and Brian's Two Strangers and a Wedding saga this last few weeks but I'm wondering if anybody else found it as oddly compelling as me.

The premise was typical radio gimmick stuff. They screened and interviewed applicants to be a bride and groom at a wedding in which they were to meet for the first time at the altar. I know, I know, it just makes you want to throw up a little in your mouth just thinking about it.

What has me scratching my head is that I found all of their finalists incredibly annoying, ESPECIALLY the ultimate bride and groom, yet I still couldn't keep myself from listening to the wedding on the way to work this morning. In fact I got all verklempt as they exchanged vows.

Perhaps I'm just going Brokeback. Come to think of it I did watch "Pride and Prejudice" last night. Hmmmm....

Snap out of it, man! Think of Mrs. Wormer. There is an entertainment value to finding stupid people and placing them in even stupider situations. I've largely avoided it thus far (along with most cop and medical dramas), but most of America loves it (guiltily of course).

I know you're right.

This path leads to the darkside. A slow painful death-spiral past "The Amazing Race" and ending at the most unimaginable horror of all: "Dancing with the Stars."

I better get ahold of myself.
