Dear RTE,
Please can you tell me if the irony was intentional or deliciously accidental that you made this man:

, the presenter of a show where they take the ugly and overweight and "transform" them into something more in line with society's (which is in itself generally ugly and/or overweight) expectations of what they're meant to look like?

Unfortunately, I take some responsibility for that... Dunno about where you are, but that shit has been going on in America for AGES, and it makes my soul hurt. There's a TON of shows like that over here wherein "transformations" are featured (usually it's a haircut and new wardrobe, but there's one I think called "Extreme Make-over" that involves plastic surgery of some kind) - total ass, which is why I haven't had TV in 10 years... Sadly, the influence of American superficiality is spreading faster than we can spit. As an American, I feel disgusted because I kind of think we started that whole thing, and I apologize to the world at large for our general shallow idiocy and ask that the world at large PLEASE ignore the moronic media (of all kinds) and kindly go about your normal life.
