Don't go swimming if you don't want to get wet.
It never fails to amaze me when people know that if they take a particular course of action that the end result is going to displease them, and yet they take that course of action. Shouldn't that be the definition of insanity?
If people from the Jerry Springer show call and invite you on as a guest, the ONLY logical response should be "No."
Everyone who has ever seen even one episode of Springer knows that guests aren't going to be treated as guests and more than likely are going to be repeatedly insulted and even physically attacked. EVERYONE KNOWS THIS... and yet, Springer continues to find people who are willing to show up and learn [along with millions of strangers] some personal secret that is guaranteed to shock, hurt and embarrass them.
"Yeah Craig," you say, "but the people who appear on Springer are uneducated folks who don't know better." Ok then, what about the folks who go on the Dr. Phil show, or any of the "reality" court shows. They know that they're going to come off looking foolish, but still they line up to be guests.
I guess they want to get wet.
