Worse than getting a bad tattoo…

I’m a huge Morgan Spurlock (of “Supersize Me” fame) fan and I love his show, “30 Days” in which he takes on tough topics like racism, religious fanaticism, disabilities and counter culture (to name only a few).

In each episode someone has to live another life for 30 days.  A devout right-wing Christian will have to live with a family that is Muslim.  A young, urban Manhattanite couple lives on a naturally sustaining commune.  An NFL player has to live in a wheelchair.

Morgan himself has played the part in a few of them: living for 30 days as a coal miner,  on a reservation, in a prison in solitary confinement.  There are rules and criteria set up in each situation.  They have to LIVE THAT LIFE, they can’t just sit there. They have to attend services, rehab, host parties…whatever is appropriate for each situation.  It’s a truly riveting social experiment.


It seems that he finally has taken things too far.
