random question.

I was surfing youtube last night when I saw this video:

Basically, if you don't want to watch it, it's about a woman who is calling in to get Kayne West tickets. In order to get the tickets, she has to call her husband (on the radio) and tell him their 9 year old son isn't his. If he doesn't cuss or freak out and says "I still love you." She wins.

Well, it went horribly wrong. He didn't cuss. He did freak out. And ended up telling her "I'm sleeping with your sister for the past year."

Uhm, woah.

Then when it came to the light about her playing a joke, it begged the question: Did the radio station go to far? Did the wife go to far? Who's to blame for this situation?

Here's my take on it.

The wife knew she was calling in to play a joke on someone. The radio station picked the joke. On one hand, it's a very serious joke to be played, but on the other, she knew what she was getting herself into. (The last tickets they gave away for Jonas Brothers, a girl had to call her grandmother and come 'out'.) She knew that they were pretty serious "jokes" (if you can call them that....).

The wife isn't to blame for this. The radio station certainly isn't to blame for this. The husband is the one who got into bed with someone else. No one forced him to. He wasn't doing it for tickets. He was doing it for his own self. That's his fault.

Sad situation, and I'm not sure why I felt it was so "blogable" but I just had to put my 2 cents in! :D

Hope everyone is enjoying their October so far, and I promise I'll be a better blogger shortly. Lots of posts coming up :)


  1. That's just awful! I have listened to radio shows have a girlfriend/wife listen in while they call the woman's significant other and pretend that the guy has won a free bouquet of roses to send to someone. They ask him who he wants to send them to, and if he says another woman's name, the girlfriend/wife freaks out! It's sort of painful to listen to.

  2. I can't believe what I just heard.
