Last night, at exactly 11:02 PM EST AMC’s “Talking Dead” host Chris Hardwick had his live audience scream out in unison “Suck my nuts!,” a quote from the just completed premier episode of the seventh season of “The Walking Dead, apparently the most popular TV show right now. This occurred slightly after an animated discussion about an actor having to cope with a tick on his penis, or a “dick tick” according to Hardwick (to BIG laughs).
Boy, that Donald Trump sure is vulgar when he doesn’t know he’s being recorded…
I am reasonably confident that this cheery gutter level discourse would have been deemed unacceptable as recently as last year. This is how fast basic levels of decency, restraint and civility are declining, although I give AMC credit for not having another “Flip another man’s meat”commercial during the breaks: maybe that’s just for baseball games.
I eagerly anticipate the explanations of why this nosedive in public decorum is unrelated to having a Presidential candidate talk at length about his penis size (I didn’t intend to have it come out that way, but hell, I’ll leave it; it’s 2016, man!) during Republican debates (you know, the conservative, family values party).
Heck, why not? Here’s that link again.
Just the campaign was enough…
