A Black Family In 6th Century England Eating Sandwiches, Other Media Absurdities & Typos
I started watching the first episode of NBC's Merlin last night and turned it off in disgust within minutes. This miserable excuse for a historical television drama is a great example of how our entire culture is now paying the price for disregarding education and devaluing intelligence through equating it with pocket protector, horn rimmed glasses wearing nerds whose only purpose for existence is to get beat up for the lolz.
Within a couple of minutes of the opening credits, there was a scene with a black family. Ok... a black family? In England? In the 6th century? That was centuries before the Moorish conquests and even then, there would never be a fully black family in England since no black women ever accompanied the Moor forces! But the best part was when the daughter fixed the father "a sandwich." This, of course, was 12 centuries before the Earl of Sandwich was born and lent his name to his invention of a hunk of meat between two slices of bread! Let's not even talk about the Norman architecture they were shooting in which had no choice but to have been built after 1066 which was the date of the Norman Conquest!
I had to try hard not to puke.
However, after due reflection, I realized that I should be more sad than nauseous. The art form once mastered by The Editor has been replaced by the rapid fire ignorance of the countless under-educated and unintelligent pseudo-writers of this obtuse age. Let's check out some of their highlights (or lowlights) in the news media:
