When flipping through the television channels I often pass by a wrestling match on my way to something a hair more civilized. From what I can see during the half second or so it takes to move on to the next channel it seems that these matches draw quite a sizeable audience.
I find it incomprehensible why anyone could possibly enjoy watching such a farce. This is by far the most insane activity ever perpetrated by self-styled humans since the days of the grunting, snorting Neanderthal cavemen. Presumably this 'sport' is the modern day version of the travesties performed in the Roman Coliseum in the time of Julius Caesar. The latter makes no more sense than the former.
If the I.Q. of professional wrestlers and their fans could be ascertained it would be my guess that their score would fall at about thirty points below the average - in other words barely above that of a head of lettuce.
I realize that such generalities can never hold true in every case and that any attempt to lump all wrestling fans into the same category is grossly unfair. Knowing the high standards of ethical conduct of Gather members, and assuming that in such a large population as the Gather community there are bound to be a small number of avid wrestling fans I would guess that a Gather member who is simultaneously a wrestling fan, or even a professional wrestler, would be somewhat of an anomaly. So to these gatherer-wrestlers I extend my humblest apologies.
