Jerry Springer Jokes That He's Going to Hell

Jerry Springer was on Chelsea Handler's talk show, Chelsea Lately last night. Now, I'm not particularly interested in Jerry Springer or Chelsea Handler. But what does interest me was a brief part of the exchange that went something like this, as summarized by the bloggers at TVSquad:
"Congratulations on twenty years," Chelsea said to him. "That's a really long time." But this was Jerry's response: "I'm going to Hell." Yes, Jerry Springer is not actually a big fan of the 'The Jerry Springer Show.' "There's no excuse for it, but yeah; it stays on the air," he said. Jerry also pointed out that his talk show has "no redeeming social value." He seemed to be struggling to think of something positive about his long TV career.
I have seen this frequently happen, where somebody who knows that they have done something bad or lived a bad life will jokingly say, "I'm going to hell." It just terrifies me each and every time that I hear it happen.

  1. I think of this everytime I listen to the Smashing Pumpkins' "Bullet with Butterfly Wings":

    despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage

    tell me I'm the only one
    tell me there's no other one
    jesus was an only son for you

    and I still believe that I cannot be saved, & co.
