While I was watching my zillionth hour of Olympic coverage this weekend — hey, don’t judge — one commercial in particular caught my eye.
It was shot from the athletes’ point of view as they trained in their different disciplines. The voices changed, but they each spoke about what they had to give up to excel at their sport.
Dessert. Sleep. Extracurricular activities. TV.
(TV? Yet another reason I would never make it…)
That’s when it hit me. These aren’t athletes — they’re a cult! Am I reacting too hastily? Let’s take another look, just to be sure.
Guys…guys, can you hear me?
I’m over here! What are you looking at?!
Man…I think they’re too far gone.

I’ve been rather obsessed with Downton Abbey lately, and a good friend asked if it was time for an intervention.
It might be now. But not just for me.
Adam WarRock, the Internet’s ‘foremost comic book rapper,’ has gone gaga for Downton Abbey, too.
A rapper….all wrapped up in the soap opera at Grantham Hall. He even posted a confession on his website:
Downton Abbey is the kind of thing that you hear about, and you’re all like, “That sounds terrible.” And then even one of your best friends won’t shut up about it, and then you have to fly to Seattle, and you watch it on the plane, and get completely obsessed with it. And then you’re calling your friend and saying things like “I’m at the part where Matthew Crawley is investigating the entail for Lord Grantham, and the Dowager Countess finds out about it,” and you realize you’re whispering because honestly, what the HELL are you even saying?
I love this guy.
Now he’s gone one step farther and written a rap about Downton Abbey. You gotta give it a listen.
Can’t see any problem with that!
