Can the culture of one nation ever understand that of another? Critics say Fox's newest reality show in which 12 witless contestants believe their in a fight to the near death for the attention of England's Prince Harry. "I Wanna Marry Harry" is said to represent a new low in reality television.

You want a new low? Six young people in Iran were jailed for dancing to the Pharrell Williams song, "Happy" in a home-made YouTube video. The group of three men and three women dancing to the tune on a rooftop in Tehran were called "vulgar" by the Tehranian police chief. And they weren't even twerking!

While we're at it, we'll talk about a new promotion at Chipotle in which the restaurant chain features new work by ten writers, including a Nobel Prize winner, on cups and bags.
