WE WISH WE COULD TELL YOU GUYS that we are sophisticated enough to have never indulged in watching trash television but sadly (and not surprisingly) we aren’t. Unlike a no-tv watchin’ electric car havin’ vegan hipster, more often than not, we have found ourselves entrenched in the bizarre drama of a Jerry Springer show.
The Jerry Springer show is a tabloid ‘talk’ show where talking happens for all of 10 minutes before there’s a conflict and his freaky guests are fighting one another. It’s shocking, funny and even though the situation is most likely fake, it makes the audience feel a whole lot better about themselves and their lives in general. It’s a simple, tried and true formula that works. The fact that the show has been around since 1991 and is still going strong means we’re not the only ones who like to watch the pure, concentrated crap that the The Jerry Springer delivers to living rooms on a daily basis.
Here’s just five of the funniest moments that have happened on the show. Go ahead, watch it. We won’t tell anybody.
