You mean it's not real?

I received a bit of a shock this morning. I was reading Parade magazine, that thin supplement that comes with Sunday comics. In it was a story that a woman who had played the wife of a pro wrestler for two years was going to actually marry the wrestler. I just couldn't get over that – had played his wife for two years. I haven't been following pro wrestling all that closely the last few years but this would seem to mean that pro wrestling has completely given up the earnest pretense of reality that was so endearing. I guess I'm just revealing my age here but I still remember when people would actually argue about whether pro-wrestling was real. Another icon of my long lost youth destroyed by the relentless po-mo forces.
