They must have good insurance

Next season of The Real World may be set in Detroit.

Yow.

Well, the only people who think Royal Oak is Detroit are the kind of people who take the Wings to the Cup against the computer with the offsides turned off.

Or do they confuse Anaheim and South Central ... Im' always getting that wrong.

Whatever, Flop. I bet they give them all some lame jobs downtown, probably working as whores and blackjack dealers in the smashtastic casinos. Or maybe they'll be octopi wranglers. At night, they'll return to Royal Oak to hump and punch windows.

I'd just point out that "Octopi Wranglers" might be the best fantasy hockey team name ever...

Real World: Sacramento is right around the corner!

Honestly, how many Real World cast members could handle counting to 21, let alone working as blackjack dealers? (My guesses are 78 percent and 23 percent).

My guess is they work as music producers to find "the next" White Stripes. And snark on Detroit all you want, but I won't. I've got a total soft spot for the D. Possibly because it's unloved and un-cool. But I also love that its downtown was mostly spared the plague of boring, glass-sided skyscrapers that characterized the 70s and 80s. It's a living architectural museum. I'm sure I'm not the only one cringing at the thought of MTV making Detroit suddenly cool and trendy.

I have a soft spot as well, but that doesn't make it less of a disaster. If MTV can make Detroit cool and trendy, that'll be the best thing to happen to that city since 1984.

A friend and I have a plan to revitalize Detroit: 1.) Free, universal wi-fi; 2.) legalize pot; 3.) lower the drinking age to 18; 4.) legalize prostitution. The MTV news could complement this.

while it's hard to deny flop's love for run-down midwestern cities, describing detroit's permanent post-riot stylings as an "architectural museum" is as misleading as suggesting fat chics can be attractive if they have nice personalities.

Misogynist.

... as well as to suggest that fat males of the species could be attractive if they have nice presonalities. all cats may look the same in the dark, but you can still tell if one is particularly hefty.
