What a bizarre practice

George Carlin said it: "When you're born, you get a ticket to the freak show. When you're born in America, you get a front-row seat."

I heard about this yesterday on NPR and I think it's just so bizarre that I thought I'd share it.

The phenomenon is "Hauls", and it's a new genre of YouTube video. People go to the store or mall, buy a bunch of stuff, and then sit down in front of the camera and talk about all the stuff they just bought.

Go on over to YouTube and look at them. Type "hauls" in the search engine and you'll find over 86,000 videos.

As I say, George Carlin had it right.
