Things That Make Me Die Inside (Vol. 4)

144023__shatner_lTypically, TTMMDI is Slezak’s bit, but I had to butt in. I’ve had it with the promos for William Shatner’s new series Show Me the Money (pictured), particularly the insistence on incorporating the past tense of [taking a crap] into every sentence. Not to mention plastering words beginning with “shat-” onscreen. This is so not an acceptable prefix.

“If you think you know fun, thrilling, and unpredictable a game show can be, then you don’t know shat!… It’s shat-tastic! It’s shat-stounding! It’s the most shat-rageous game show ever!” (Cut to Shat himself, exclaiming “It’s a fiesta!”)

Can we NOT?

ABC, stop trying to make “shat” happen. It’s not going to happen.
