Douchebag Decree: Smart Girls Gone Wild?

douchebag_decree.jpg

Smart Girls at the Party fans, prepare for a disappointment of the douche kind. In order to increase viewers for their second season, the SGATP team (whose first season focused on young girls kicking major ass – check it out if you haven't seen it) is joining forces with Joe Francis (the owner of Mantra Films and the jerkstore behind the Girls Gone Wild franchise) and his band of douchenozzles to create a Girls Gone Wild-type show for tweens. That's right – now, instead of watching tween girls talk about their awesome bands or cool art projects, on Smart Girls at the Party Season Two we can see them flounce around in teeny bikinis holding wet t-shirt contests and seeing who can tie a knot in a cherry stem the fastest. W.T.F.?

April Fool's!

For those of you who haven't shut your laptops in disgust and are still reading this, obviously the above statement is complete bullshit. Well, except for one thing: Smart Girls at the Party is in production for a second season, but instead of being a douche-filled disaster we're sure it will be nothing but a delight.

An April Fool

You really had me going for a minute there! Since I'm prone to being an April Fool myself, when I clicked on "play" for Smart Girls at the Party I half expected to see a video of some sexy macho hunk like this guy. Just kidding. APRIL FOOL'S!

Hahahahahaha

What a turn on

You had me...totally

You had me...totally confused. Nice one!

Fooled me

It's kind of sad, and indicative of the sorry state of television geared toward young girls, that this didn't seem like much of a stretch to me.

Agreed.

I was disappointed, but not exactly surprised. It seemed weird that Poehler would make compromises like that, but given enough money...I'm not sure I have that kind of faith in any public figure. I almost didn't click the link, because my mental response was, "Oh god, another inappropriate tween stunt." Needless to say, I'm glad I clicked anyway!

Oh my god, you completely

Oh my god, you completely had me. Since I'm reading this after April Fools it didn't even occur to me that it might be a joke. Thank god it is.

Douchebag Decree

Ok, you had fun on April Fools' Day, half a yr ago. I just discovered the site, Smart Gilrs at the Party, and was very excited to take the info to my kids for my 9 yr old granddaughter. We discussed getting a Smart Girls Club going at g-dtr's school, and they are just getting up the courage to let her venture onto the Net for some time of her own, so we are very disappointed to see that a websearch would set her up to run immediately into words like douchebag. C'mon, that's about as unpleassant a word as c--t. If you truly appreciate why the folks of SGatP are trying to accomplish, would you please consider get this word eliminated from your link, please.
