Quite possibly the only MTV show I won't watch.

I think Pimp My Ride is quite possibly one of MTV's dumbest creations, right up there with Next and Parental Control. Still, though, I won't give them -5 for one reason: the show provided countless hours of entertainment while I was in Paris.

It was August 2007 and I was in Paris again for a wedding. Somehow, I got pretty ill and had to stay in my hotel for a few days to recover. What show, you ask, was on French TV almost all day and all night? That's right, Pimp My Ride, which in France was called "Tuner ma caisse." Yeah, don't ask. (It literally means "tune my cash register," among other things.) Hour after hour, I saw beat-up cars go from bad to worse and heard translators butcher what was really being said in English.

So I guess I owe the show some credit for keeping me somewhat sane for those few days until I was able to roam the streets of La ville lumière without throwing up in the Seine. Thank you!!
