In all fairness, I now alot about MDA, my famly has been invoved with the organization for 16 years so don't tell me I dont know what happens at the telethons, hell I've been working at them for 3 years no.
Plus the Global Warming thing, the statement of it takes up to a century for all the CO2 in the atmosphere to go away is something I found out lasy year in Chemistry, It was from the teachers mouth so I've no source about but feel free to prove me wrong. Wouldent be the first and wont be the last
Listen douche. Why would the local office of MDA be pissed at Jerry Lewis then. He doesent get double digit percent but he receives about 2%, who put up you shit Urban Legend site, what makes it so relieble, I bet I could find a site saying Hitler was actually Churchills cousin, but obviously no credibility would be held to such slander. But back on topic, Lewis make some money of it. Even if it's not documented it could be off the books, hell people get payed off the books all the time. You think I want to beleive this. I like the telethon, but Jerry Lewis gets alot for what he does. He's a nice guy and Im no saying he's a monster I just saying he is not as good as he says he is. Now stick that in your back pocket..... Bitch. Goddamn you guys everything I say you tell me no. Now I know how John Adams felt.
It achieved a lot (both times, although the exact extent is questionable). However, how many of the acts originaly signed up because they needed the free publicity of an international broadcast, or the exposure that the event could give them to new markets and demographics?
