. . . the train wreck.
you know what i mean. the tv show that no matter how horrific it may sound, must be watched because you cannot believe someone actually spent money and time making such a show. most of these shows currently reside on the same channel. you know the one. tlc. the learning channel. if learning includes being educated about the most obscure, most ridiculous, or most disgusting, then i guess it is the correct moniker.
so, now that you know how it happens, let me tell you my current train wreck:
i know, you watch it too, don't you??
i sit with mouth agape throughout each show. it really is shocking.
what have i learned you ask? well, let me tell you . . .
1. after the first episode, i have pretty much determined i have absolutely no desire to reside in west virginia. if the people on the episode are an accurate sampling of the population, then i am pretty sure i don't want to visit either. (insert dueling banjos here)
2. i know what a "flipper" and a "fall" are. maybe i am sheltered, but i had never heard anyone refer to a "flipper" and i thought a "fall" was only for an adult. they sure schooled me!
3. being a stay at home mommy, i am not always up to date on my slang. it appears that the new terminology for "queen" is "pagaent dad". please see example below.
thank you, tlc. you definitely are the learning channel.
