Really? The "REAL world?" A few suggestions.

Some of the "Real World" is not real.  That info shook me to my core and made
me reevaluate all things that I held to be truth.  OK.  I lie.  But I did meet Julie from
Birmingham, Alabama who was on the first season of "Real World."

Julie explained that through editing and taking shots from different days the producers
were able to take a small disagreement between her and her mother and stretch the incident into a
two parter.  Here is where you cut to a look of disappointment on my face.  You can take this look
from my recent discovery that my local McDonalds stopped carrying McRib.

Anyway, I thought "Real World" might need some updating.  I submit a few ideas for
the producers to consider on a new show called:

"Real World--the Next Generation."

1.  Instead of the cast consisting of some white people and a token black, a token Hispanic and token gay, make 2 housemates gay, 2 housemates black, 2 housemates Hispanic and include a token white heterosexual.  

2.  Put the whole bunch of them in Keokuk, Iowa and watch the hilarity ensue.

3.  Make all the housemates Harvard and Yale graduates.  Give them the same unlimited free alcohol they give all Real World casts.  We will learn that smart people can be as dumb as the dopey people that make up the usual cast.

4.  Have them all be average looking.  

5.  Make the housemates consist of 4 Republican and 4 Democratic U.S. House Representatives and watch them try to come to bipartisan agreement on where to go for lunch.  The cameras then follow them as they go to the local "Hooters" restaurant.

6.  MTV gives a dollar to charity each time a housemate says "like".

7.  Put the housemates in a dry county.  Then force the cast to have a discussion about a topic.  Any topic.

8.  Think three words:  "Real World, Somalia"

Any additional suggestions are welcome.
