I've been home sick for 3 straight days...

and yet I've done more work in these 3 days than I do in a week at my actual office. It turns out my brain really works well in the after midnight hours. That must be why I find Frasier so much funnier before midnight than after. That's not to say Frasier isn't funny. Sometimes it is. But it's not Mensa funny. Apparently Mensa thinks they know what smart tv shows are. I beg to differ if this is really the best they have to offer. If you don't want to bother clicking on the link, I'll do the damage for you. Here's their list of smartest shows:

The West Wing
Boston Legal
All in the Family
Mad About You

I'll give them Jeopard because duh! and Cosmos since that's a totally nerdy PBS type thing. I'll also agree with All in the Family because the satire and sarcasm in that show was brilliant. Voltaire couldn't have done better himself. But Mad About You? And CSI? I refuse to believe those are smart shows. It's not that they're dumb but really? And where are Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars? Admittedly those are my favorite tv shows period but part of the reason is because they were so freaking smart. Certainly they were more intelligent than stupid, old Frasier (which I do enjoy).

Mensa. Pshaw. Dumbasses.

They're wrong. Boston Legal is the FUNNIEST show on tv. Not the smartest.

I want to be Shirley Schmitt when I grow up.

RIP West Wing. You were fake as hell, but how I loved you so.
