As long as their principle spokesmen are harvested from the field of entertainers I expect no
serious competition. Although I can see one true threat. There are an enormous amount of Americans
that look upon our entertainers as royalty. If you can bounce a ball or repeat someone else's words

"encore". And of course, what follows are their demands for even more ridiculously
higher salaries reflecting more expensive ticket prices for the drooling, enthralled, masses.
But its okay because y'all truly love 'em.
