Re: Why does wrestling get called white trash?
The irony of theater being for the upper class, amuses me actually. Theater was originally for the people and most tickets sold during Shakespeare's time were to the ground-lings, aka the normal people who didn't get cushions or possibly even a chair/bench to sit on. So it's really quite funny that all the people who think they're better than us for reading Shakespeare and Marlowe(both of whom I've read for fun), and go to the theater(which I do go to when I can scrimp and save enough) do so because they're reading and attending plays that were, themselves, looked down upon by elitist pricks like the people of today. The truth is Shakespeare is only the legend he is today because Elizabeth the I had the same sense of humor as the ground-lings.
One generation's crap for white trash is a later generation's elite classic theater. Of course, the people who look down on us will take the same attitude of the people who looked down on Shakespeare's fans and claim it's different. At least what THEY love was actually good.
