Producer to TLC execs: "We're not putting enough stupid shit on The Learning Channel."
Execs: "But what about the freaks with 20 kids?"
Producer: "Not weird enough."
Exec: "Dwarf families? Mormon polygamists? Honey Boo-Boo?"
Producer: *snore* "you were saying something?"
Execs: "What have you got?"
Producer: "You're going to love this. All the other faux education channels have house buying/flipping/remodeling shows that do well, right?"
Exec: "Yes, but how is that stupid enough for TLC?"
Producer: "Simple. We're going to have... pause for drama.... Naked Homebuyers!"
Everyone around the room just stares at each other, mouths agape until some semi retarded TLC exec starts a slow clap. Champagne corks pop and the whole conference room erupts like they just won the World Series.
For the ill-informed, there is a new TLC show called Buying Naked and it's about real estate in a nudist community in Central Florida. We, as viewers are supposed to believe that nudists can't be bothered to put clothes on while home shopping. After a quick look at the website, it seems that we, the viewers, are also supposed to believe that nudists aren't fat old people either.
I don't buy it but I'll probably get sucked into it one boring Sunday afternoon.
