I have three book quotes here, but don't remember which books they came from.
" One of the problems with flying a jet is you don't get a lot of time to admire the scenery."
" We're all gonna die. The trick is not to rush it."
"Q: how many feebies (FBI Agents) does it take to change a light bulb?
A: all of them. Ten thousand to study the problem, twenty-six hndred to fill out forms in triplicate and wait for approval, seventeen to monitor from a safe distance and one agent to go undercover and bribe a confidential informant to climb the ladder and do the dirty work."
Things I've seen on TV.
It's not a long list, you won't need a cuppa.
On one show, I watched as a young couple in a cafe greeted each other with a passionate kiss.
They broke apart and he said something to her and she replied, "I think I left my gum in your mouth."
He said, " you want it back?" She said, "no, I'll get it later."
(at this point I had to push away my dinner plate)
When they were saying goodbye, they kissed again, and guess what? She got her gum back!
(I had to scrape my plate into the bin, couldn't eat after that)
Which brings me to kissing on TV and in movies. Why do we need to see this so close up I can count tonsils? And why do so many kissers approach each other with mouths so wide they look like a shark about to devour a surfer?
I don't care how realistic, or not, this is. It's disgusting.
Something else on TV, a new show, you'll never guess....
Pets make you Laugh out Loud.
Yes, that's right, LOL cats and LOL dogs have become a one hour Tuesday evening program. Birds too.
As if Funniest Home Videos weren't enough.
You all remember that one?
People sent in home videos of kids falling off swings or trampolines, running into walls, people stacking dirt bikes into or off piles of tires, wedding participants suffering all kinds of mishaps.
Some of those were funny, but most made me cringe as I saw kids crying or otherwise getting hurt.
I gave up watching it very quickly.
Tell me what you find disgusting on TV.
