Jameil got me watching The Freaks and Weirdo channel tonight AKA TLC I remember when TLC used to be about educational stuff, but now it's all about these strange human oddities. 1000 lb parents, 7 foot tall kids, and babies that eat eyeballs. Okay, I made that last one up, but this is getting ridiculous. I can't take it. I have a well documented aversion to midgets, so once TLC started showing the Little People show all the time, I pretty much forgot I had this channel. Then Jon and Kate got popular and that was even more reason for me to not watch TLC, but every now and then I'll be turning through the channels and see the sensational title like "Your Baby Ate What?" and have to check out what they are talking about.

It's always a bad idea. I don't want to see that. Things that creep me out: midgets, conjoined twins, visible tumors on the outside of someone's body. big giant preternaturally large babies... I've seen all these on TLC, so I think I should just block that channel. And yes, if my child had one of these afflictions, I would still love him/her.

I don't believe you. big giant preternaturally large babies is redundant. Do you think they're over-sized?

LOL...TLC is definitely not what it used to be. I used to love watching trading spaces (awesome show), but then I fell in love with HGTV, so who needs tlc, haha.

I have seen the little people show, though. I really enjoy it. The Dad is a little mean, though.

My friend who happens to live in your neck of the woods, got me started watching Little People.

You mean that you haven't seen Cake Boss?

My sister loves these tyes of shows. She especially likes this show on hoarding. Some of these shows make me immediately lose my appetite and I just don't like looking at them.

I normally by pass this channel too, but I was totally engrossed with watching what the babies ate. Go figure!

There is a show "I didn't know I was pregnant" that I think comes on TLC. It is the funniest show ever even though it's not supposed to be. They do these cheesy reenactments of people unexpectingly giving birth and I crack up every time.
