The Onion News Network has again struck gold with their faux punditry. This segment of 'In the Know' called 'Are Reality Shows Setting Unrealistic Standards For Skanks?' demystifies reality shows and the science of skank in panel form.

The Onion panelists agree that the skanks that appear on reality shows are indeed setting the standards of skankiness far too high for real-life skanks, but vary in their levels of disapproval. One pundit points out that shows like 'Flavor of Love' and 'Rock of Love' are empowering to skanks, showing them that with a can-do attitude, they too can aspire to superskankdom.

The video is hilarious, but be warned if you're watching at work--there's foul language aplenty. Stats for Fake Punditry Trending: Older & Average
