Scariest headline of the year:

Reinventing Menudo

If the recent return of such ’80s phenomena as skinny jeans, “Miami Vice” and a good Mets team isn’t enough to make you feel like you’ve gone back to the future, now comes the reemergence of perhaps the decade’s most important contribution to pop culture.

No, the mullet isn’t coming back. Menudo is.

The prefab, revolving-door boy band that set countless teenybopper hearts aflutter across Latin America and the United States throughout the 1980s – and gave the world Ricky Martin – is in the process of being revived, recast and reinvented.

(…)

…Menudo will be promoted through a pop-culture marriage of ’80s nostalgia and a decidedly 21st-century entertainment trend – the reality show.

The boys will star in a “Making the Band”-style series, in which they’ll all live together in New York City.

Let’s review the math here: Menudo + Reality TV = Ultimate Suck.

    I like the whole “good Mets team” thing.
