“To Some, Television Is Reality Inuit Kids Chasing ‘Dukes of Hazzard!'”

Confuse not lyrics

with truth or even intent:

Inuit kids die!*

 

*(One study from the Marshall McLuhan days suggested that Eskimo kids just getting into the American mainstream with cars and teevees and snowmobiles, see people do dumb stunts like on a popular television show featuring a muscle car named The General jumping all kinds of impossible impediments to both trafficability and sanity try similar stunts in their “Up North” tundra and wind up dead.  Why, their survivors wonder, do they not come back from the dead next week like on “Dukes?”  And I fear the phenomena has migrated southwards.)
