How TV works

mathwhiz78 asks “And TV? How do the sound and pictures get from some studio into a little box in my living room?”

Mike, TV was invented after scientists in the 1940s figured out how to shrink people. They stuff ‘em in the box and torture ‘em into performing. That’s why there’s a whole profession of shrinks. They’re really secret talent scouts. It’s the most exploitative industry in the world.

Mike quips “the news anchor just gave a “shout out” to her friend who was married today. yay professionalism!”

To that, I can only say “See what torture gets you?”

James gasped and asked “So when i go to my shrink he’s really trying to figure out if i belong in that box?”
