|Midgets and Pit Bulls.....WHY!?|
Back on the subject of Pit Boss. The show stars the crew of Shortywood Productions/Shorty's rescue, Shorty Rossi, Ashley Brooks,
hilarious. Would this show work with regular sized people? No. The only appeal of this show sadly, is the fact that they are little people, is it exploitation? I can't say. They enjoy doing it, moreover, they don't seem to mind being elves or dressing as little hamburgers (Well they mind but they still do it.) Plus it doesn't really paint a bad image of little people it shows them as hard working, sweet hearted caring people- sometimes. I'm reminded of an episode where shorty hired a normal sized woman(she didn't last long), about my height. Perhaps an inch shorter, and shorty had no trouble hiring her, but Ashley (The receptionist) said something that disturbed me a bit. It went something like "It's weird having an average in here, it's sort of like she's trying to take our spot." In a later episode she ,being a lesbian and all, mentioned something about heterosexuals, and I know we're the majority, but chill with the typecasting, we aren't all the same and we aren't all homophobic, we don't care if you buy your girlfriend a promise ring. My girlfriend bought us matching rings but she didn't go around saying "you know, a lot of homos would find this weird, me buying us rings" So she ticks me off a bit. But other than that, it's a pretty good show and a descent conversation starter. Well, I'm late for a dog fight- catch you later.
