Ouch, My Balls!

Grandma, I love you, you can skip this entry :)

SOOO, I am a stay at home mom, so yes, I know who Jon and Kate plus 8 are, and I was not a little intrigued when the ‘big news’ broke.

I’ve seen wipeout. Russell and I laugh like we won the lottery when someone gets whacked in the face by a mechanical boxing glove or bounces 10 feet in the air before landing in the swampy abyss.

I was (a long time ago) a watcher of Laguna Hills the Real OC because of a sister thing and something to do with Abby? And then Lorraine dragged me (I admit, there was no kicking and screaming) into the HILLS as she and LC began adventures in a new big city. So, yeah, I knew Heidi before she met Flesh Colored Beard (aka spencer) and watched as they grew from a grey sickly caterpillar into one of those giant you-can’t-take-your-eyes-off-them moth monsters about to get zapped in the backyard. And they call it ‘Speidi’

There was this (kinda dumb) movie called Idiocracy that came out about 10 years ago. I could Google it, but then i am over thinking it. The premise of this movie is a man is frozen by the military and they accidently forget about him for 500 years. Basically while he is frozen dumb people procreate as much as they want, and intelligent people keep waiting for the right time and in 500 years he wakes up to find a society that eats mysterious tubs of crap and the most popular show on television is “EXPLOSIONS!! EXPLOSIONS!! EXPLOSIONS!!” which is second only to “OUCH, MY BALLS!!” Which is video after video of people, you know, getting whacked in their nether regions.

I don’t really have anything more to say than that, except to say that often a lot of the tv I find myself flipping off and walking away from these days makes me think of that movie. I’m not above it all, PLEASE don’t take my Judge Judy from me! But I do think that while we’re not eating buckets of ‘butter flavored butter’ yet, if you would like some pasta in a bread bowl, then you got it!

Umm, is "Ouch My Balls!" a real show yet? And if so, what channel and when is it on, lol. Have you ever seen MXC. I think it used to come on Spike? I think they have an American version, but you need to watch the Asian one.

I knew I'd hit a new low when today I admitted to a good friend that I've sort of given up on literature, because with Tivo I NEVER have to miss a single episode of The Soup or The Hills! yay! oh wait? That's totally pathetic? oh, yeah.

We will never, ever take your Judge Judy away. JJ is the new rittalin.

I am so happy to finally see Pasta Bowls getting the hate mail it deserves! That was awesome! Oddly enough, I had just put Idiocracy on my netflix list, so now it's going straight to the top of the queue (after we finish being destroyed by The Wire, that is!).
