For those of you who don't know, The Gong Show was a TV show where, if you sucked, you got gonged. Last year's talent show was the Gong Show. And it went great (from what I was told). Everyone enjoyed it. However, someone's mommy complained that her daughter got gonged. And now, no more Gong Show.
An example of the Gong Show
Now, I'm against being a prick (unless it's neccessary). But, when you know that their is a possibility that you might suck, and that you might get gonged, you shouldn't be upset when it happens. Who really cares, to be honest. It's all for fun. Truthfully, if I got gonged, I'd just laugh. But nooooooooooo. We have these politically correct sad-sacks (I don't really care if this offends you, sorry, but that's not my problem) who believe that getting gonged "ruins their kid's self-esteem." Well then guess what, lock your kid in a room and never let them out so they can never have their feeling hurt ever. This is ridiculous. If you don't wanna get gonged, don't go on. Plain and simple. Don't cry about it. Since you did, you've ruined everyone else's fun. And for that, I say get a grip.
