A Letter

28 Jan

Dear TLC (The Learning Channel, not the R&B group),
Over the years, you have brought much entertainment and enjoyment into my living room. I would like to thank you for shows such as: Say Yes to the Dress, John and Kate + 8, Sister Wives, I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant, and of course, you’re shining star, Toddlers & Tiaras.

I do, however, feel that you’ve taken things a little too far with your latest addition, My Strange Addiction. While I’m aware that there are people in the world who eat couch cushions or laundry detergent, or pull out their hair, or pick their scabs and eat them…that does not mean that I care to watch it. I mean, I have tried very hard not to judge these people, but when you showed the preview for the guy who has a “relationship” with his synthetic girlfriend (“The sex is amazing,” he said.) I gave up. Seriously, TLC. Where the hell are you finding these people?

Strange addictions should be kept between the addict and their therapist, if you ask me. Please get back to your regularly scheduled programming of 4-year-old diva breakdowns and women with 26 children. Thanks.

    Sorry. That last bit where I typed eteng? That isn't a word, it was for the stupid word verification thingy Blogger makes you type for comments.

    OMG- Davecat. I saw that one. And the crazy scab picking addiction counterpart was from our town. Everytime they showed our lovely 'welcome to' sign I was horrified. It really ruined toddler and tiaras with the pretty little girls from GA who competed in a gym. Please- I know a little town that starts with an L that could do way better than that. Just sayin'
