Really BAD TV

I saw something really weird on TV last night. It was “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” done as a musical… Now how bizarre is that? I only watched it for about 15 minutes, but yes they really took the Robert Louis Stevenson horror classic, and had everyone belt it out with show tunes! Is it just me, or is this just down right weird? What next? The musical version of “Silence of the Lambs”? Hey, why not?

Or what about this?

This is not a parody, but a poster for a real musical that played on Broadway a while back. I guess that anything can be a musical. Although I must admit that I just never knew that women think menopause is hilarious, or cause for a celebration worthy of song and dance.

Last night seemed to be a really good night for really bad TV. I was channel surfing, and it seemed like everything I turned on was somewhat twisted and just plain funny for all the wrong reasons.

There was “Dino Croc” which in the opening scene, this scientist creates a genetically altered baby crocodile that starts to rip to shreds all the other crocodiles in the Junglearium. (Junglearium is not really a word. I just made it up for the fun of it) Seeing all this carnage, the scientist responds by banging on the glass and yelling “Stop that!” For some reason, the primitive reptile did not respond to this order… Is it just me, or is this funny?

Of course, then the scientist climbs into the Junglearium and also gets ripped to shreds. I figure anybody dumb enough to try and reason with a mutant crocodile on a murderous rampage probably had it coming.

The next thing I turned on, was a soft core porn flic in which the actors engaged in some of the worst simulated sex I’ve ever watched. I mean, what this couple was doing, was anatomically ridiculous! They say a miss is as good as a mile, but this guy was missing his Miss by a mile! Time to change the channel again.

I finished my channel surfing with a double episode of “COPS”. I love “COPS”! Seriously! I watch it as a kind of dark comedy, starring some of the most ridiculous people in the human race. Not the cops, but the wackos the cops have to deal with. Like the woman who called the cops because somebody sold her fake crack cocaine… HELLOOO??? Is it really a good idea to call the police because you are breaking the law by trying to buy illegal drugs, and somebody didn’t give you what you paid for?

Or the episode when this kid from East Boston steals all the lawn furniture from his neighbors who live on the same block, and gives it to his mother for her birthday. The neighbors just happened to be driving by as he was unloading their furniture out of his pick up. Naturally, they called the police… who did not arrest him, since the neighbors didn’t press charges, (I think they felt sorry for his mother)

But the beauty of this episode is that later that same night, this same kid steals his ex-girlfriend’s car, and she calls the police, who nail the guy almost immediately. As you might imagine, she has no problem with pressing charges, and the guy ends up in jail. Apparently, he didn’t learn that if you’re gonna be a thief, it might be a good idea to not steal from people who know you, or live close by.


I saw this advertisement online yesterday. What will they think of next?


Self-Serve Toilet Seats

“In the scheme of things, toilet seats are minor. But imagine the marital bliss when the seat takes care of itself—and pampers you in the bargain. From Toto, the tankless Neorest “washlet” turns the toilet into a warm-water cleansing unit. Gentle front-and-back aerated spray; oscillating spray massage, a heated seat, automatic deodorizer and warm drying make hygiene high-tech. Approach and the lid automatically opens. Stand there and the seat rises, too. When you leave, Neorest automatically flushes and the lid closes. Genius.”
Now I can see why the self closing seat is a good idea, but this whole “washlet” thing seems kinda weird. I think it would take some major getting used to. At least from where this man stands. And even more so, from where he “sits”!


I forwarded this to a female friend of mine, and she was quick to write back this reply:

“Great! Now we’ll never get anyone out of the bathroom in the morning!”

Lol :-)

  1. Where can I get me one of those toilets! :)

    • Lord Google is omniscient and provides all… as long as you’ve got a credit or debit card with a positive balance. Still think that I’d have a hard time getting used to being “washletted” but who knows? Maybe I’d learn to love it! Lol :-) Thanks for stopping by Michelle.

    In re: to Menopause the Musical…it was probably a spinoff of The Vagina Monologues. Women in the past have not viewed menopause very humorous but we’re getting better about it. I mean, the temporary insanity that results has to be good for something, why not a few laughs?

    • Now temporary insanity being made positive with laughter is a good idea, and to be committed. Or maybe to be commended too. (welcome to Word Play! lol) And you may be right about this being a spinoff of The Vagina Monologues, and even though they have lips, I still had no idea that they can talk! Is that why women are always saying that men never listen? Actually, I saw The Vagina Monologues, but I don’t recall any singing and dancing. But wait a minute… now as I recall, she did so some “singing” and it was pretty damn impressive too! LOL

  3. Yeah, I here you about musicals, I remember seeing Spiderman the musical advertised a while back & thinking WTF? Then that show the ‘Vagina monologues’ just threw me a curve ball, I did suggest a show called ‘Cock Tales’ to a local theatre company but surprisingly they didn’t want to know…
    And yeah, we get tons of awful shows here too which makes channel hopping a real head shaking experience…
    And what can I say about the toilet? Not sure I’d be comfortable reading my book while its blowing water up my arse… Lol!
    Another great piece… ;)
    Keep up the good work… :)
    Well done!!!

    • Thanks Fritz! ‘Cock Tales’ may not make it to the theatre, but I’ll bet it’s the title or a variation of the title of more than a few porn flicks. You could google it and see what comes up, but I think we both already know… ;-) And no I’m also still not ready for anything “blowing water up my arse…” or getting it blow dried either! LOL! Thanks for stopping by! :-)

  4. I’m with you, it is downright weird!
