William Hung

I’d say I don’t understand what’s the big fuss was over William Hung, but I’ve given it some thought, and I do understand. However, that doesn’t mean I approve.

There were several other people who sang badly, why weren’t they offered deals? One factor: He isn’t a bitch. We Americans don’t typically like to reward bitchiness, so many of those people who said, “You’ll be sorry you didn’t pick me,” aren’t going to get a deal. Another example: Is there anyone who wanted Omarosa to win “The Apprentice”?

The second factor I believe is even more important: Not only does he sing funny, but he looks funny. It’s true. And, he talks funny.

That about sums it up. It’s a boost for self-esteem. You can say, “Okay, maybe I sing almost as bad, but at least I don’t look, talk, and act that funny.”

Face it, we’re laughing at him. Wait, what about his positive attitude? Yeah, that “positive attitude” is just a rationalization for laughing at him. I’m not cruel; I’m praising his “positive attitude” and how he’s trying to achieve the “American Dream.”

The real American Dream is just to find people worse off than you so you can laugh at them.

However, if you’ll pardon my mixed metaphor, I guess it’s William Hung who gets the last laugh… all the way to the bank.

Yet, that’s still just another rationalization: He’s getting money, or compensation for it, so it’s okay to laugh at him.

I’d criticize this, but I know America can go lower… much lower.

    william hung is a failure to the chinese race. my pseudo-conspiracy theory is that the public attention on william hung is founded on ill motives. yes, they are laughing AT him, that much is obvious. but the truth of the matter is, America is laughing because they are relieved…there IS such a thing as a failure of a chinese child…there is hope for the white man after all…

    just kidding -_-

    …well not really

    yeah I think the whole hype over him is stupid, too. I feel bad for him ’cause ppl are making a fool out of him, yet that’s pretty dumb to feel bad about it because he’s getting lots of money. But what about his dignity? Is the $ worth it? ;D
    hey, I’m not relieved over ‘his failure’! He’s not a failure either ’cause he’s going to UC Berkley, too.
    …Why did I leave a long ass comment over this? 0_o
