The Real-Life Lindsey Naegle

Few quotes have this kind of inherent self-parody:

Daddy’s Girls, along with several of the other announced shows, will be “aspirational, enterprising, and empowering,” claims MTV: “These new series reflect Generation ‘Why Not?’ — living, working and playing on their own terms, ‘adventure capitalists’ if you will, pursuing a variety of thrill-seeking, 2.0, express-yourself enterprises,” says MTV entertainment president Brian Graden, presumably while choking back vomit.

For comparison:

Lady: We at the network want a dog with attitude. He’s edgy, he’s “in your face.” You’ve heard the expression “let’s get busy”? Well, this is a dog who gets “biz-zay!” Consistently and thoroughly.
Krusty: So he’s proactive, huh?
Lady: Oh, God, yes. We’re talking about a totally outrageous paradigm.
Meyer: Excuse me, but “proactive” and “paradigm”? Aren’t these just buzzwords that dumb people use to sound important? [backpedaling] Not that I’m accusing you of anything like that. [pause] I’m fired, aren’t I?
Myers: Oh, yes.

  1. Man I haven’t watched MTV in so long…its really alien to me. I can’t trash it tho, cause i don’t watch anything better else where. Like those guys digging that tunnel in iceland. I really hope they get it done soon or at least make some progress because I am tired of see the same old same old about it. Show me the dam darn it! Stay warm amigo. and merry new year and happy christmas!
