My Strange Addiction

Holy Crap! – I was having so much fun building sand castles. that  I forgot about the kids.

There are no doubts about it that the cable  channel TLC has some of the strangest programming on television. They are the yahoos behind the shows like;  Sister Wives, (OK, I just want to add if I can have 6 or 7 wives at least one of them is gonna be a hottie)  Freaky Eaters, Hoarding: Buried Alive,  Cake Boss, Extreme Couponing,  Toddlers and Tiaras ( don’t get me started on that one), 19 Kids and Counting, Kate plus Eight, Say Yes to the Dress, Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta, (and then Say Yes to the Dress for Fat Girls), NY Ink,   LA Ink,  I Didn’t Know I was Pregnant (How is that possible??) and then I know TLC also has like 10 different shows that feature midgets.  At first I  seriously thought that TLC stood for the The Little Channel.  For the record, midgets  freak me out – it’s from a workplace trauma when I had to deal with the little sons of bitches while I was working for the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus – I was scarred for life.

But I think when someone said, yes let’s do a show about the weird addictions people have,  the cable channel set an all time new low bar for television programming.  Don’t get me wrong, I watch My Strange Addiction, Freaky Eaters  and their hoarding shows all of the time.  I just was thinking that if someone can get TV time and publicity for eating dry wall instead of potato chips or the lady who is addicted to smelling gasoline – what won’t they put on TV?

So I have decided to become the honorary head of programming for TLC for a day. Here are the new edgy, trend setting reality TV shows I will be putting into production:

News Shows Coming Soon

Real Blind Dates – follows the creepy men who enjoy dating girls who are legally blind

Buffet Bodies – Every show will follow super obese people who eat at Las Vegas buffets for each of  their three daily meals

Hoes Who Hoe – Cameras  follow the secret lives of street walkers who are also closet gardeners raising everything from radishes to arugula and parsnips to pumpkins

Creative Writing – The world of bloggers will be closely examined – stories will include profiles of  the Bluff  Blogger and the Plagiarizing Presbyterian

Prison Pen Pals – Each episode will feature the very, very, very, very lonely people who find companionship through writing letters to convicted killers

What Not To Wear From Your Sister’s Closet – Follows a bunch of transgendered teen males who diss upon the clothes they stole from their sister’s closets

Extreme Hotel Room Service Makeover – Surprised hotel guests return to their rooms to find it has been changed into an exact replica of their bedroom back home

Cops and Doughnuts –  A team of psychologists try to break down the serious  addiction law enforcement officers have to  doughnuts and help get them into recovery

Pimp My Cart – Spry senior citizens trade in their standard golf carts in the world’s largest retirement community for pimped out carts that feature such luxuries as a diaper changing station and reclining drivers seat for a quick nap at street crossings

Lottery Losers – People who have never won the lottery talk about how miserable their current life is and day-dream about what they would do if they ever actually won

See, I am not just a pretty face.  I could be a television development executive – Hello can you hear me TLC?

Have  a great day!

  1. Also….
    19 kids and counting….Really? That is really too much.This is the definition of excessive right here.

    I didn’t know I was pregnant…WTF! You are dumb, morbidly obese, or can’t tell the difference between needing to use the bathroom and needing to give birth to a child (usually in the bathroom. If you watched this show, they always seem to give birth in the bathroom.)

    But, all of that aside, I have to say; there was one case of a woman who had reached menopause and had been menopausal for years now, and somehow got pregnant. So I guess things like this do happen.

    1. Um yes Malavija, but it takes two to tango as they say….did that middle age menopausal woman forget about the weekend tryst she had with the pool boy?

  2. Haha this was such a great post!
    TLC is such a strange channel, but sometimes I can’t help but watch it for some mindless mind-numbing entertainment.

    UGH…toddlers and tiaras. That show freaks me right out.

    I would definitely watch all your suggests though. On repeat.

  3. Hilarious. We don’t get all the shows you’ve mentioned in Australia but last night we were talking about that show ‘I didn’t know I was pregnant’ and saying how is that possible? The other show that cracks me up is ‘My Dog Ate What?’ That is a weird one. I love your suggestions for shows and am cracking up at the Lottery Losers one. That is so funny. Thanks for a great laugh!
