I’m having problems with my roommate. Let’s call him “Ralph.” Me and Ralph were good friends last year and when we were rejected from Housing last semester we decided it would be good if we found an apartment together off campus. On our budget, the best deal we found was a one-bedroom apartment. It was great for a while, but then his porn habit started to flourish and started to interfere with my studies.
Whenever I come home, he has porn on. Before it was just the standard cheesy Spice Channel stuff, but the latest craze is this porn called “Porno Pony.” It’s really sick, but I feel like if I tell him that it’s bothering me that he will think I’m un-cool or worse it would ruin our friendship. It’s really hard to study when you have a horse having an orgasm in the same room. What should I do?

I am reminded of episode 31 of “ALF.” Do you remember this one? The Tanners (same name as “Full House”!) become a TV ratings family. ALF’s favorite show, which happens to be a polka variety show, is about to be cancelled. As a result, ALF uses a computer to hack his way into the ratings system, making the polka show numero uno!
The point of this is that the Tanners did not like the polka show, but they never really gave it a chance. Have you given “Porno Pony” a chance? Have you ever sat down with your friend and actually watched it? Don’t judge a book by its cover.
