Things I Will Never Understand (8/25/12)


Why? Why? Why?

I understand their reasons are religious. Of course they are!
The Crusades were also embarked upon for religious reasons. Look how that turned out.

What could possibly be entertaining about watching this show?
I think I would rather watch footage of the ACTUAL Crusades.

    Where and in which holy scriptures does it say “Thou shalt have more than a dozen children and then go forth to forsake them all to television for profit.”

    I’ve only heard of this one. I have never actually seen it. In principle I don’t necessarily disagree with the multiple wives thing. I think it might be nice to have a couple of gals around to share the load and talk shit. I could use an extra set of hands or two, couldn’t you? And you will never convince me that there are not threesomes involved. Never.


  3. I don’t watch this one and I agree – like seriously, why? And I’m not sure that people should be limited to the number of children they have, but 19 seems a little (like way too) much. The show that I DO watch and have problems with (and my husband says, “Why do you keep watching it then?”) is Sister Wives. All the women seem very nice and everything, but it’s the attitude that they couldn’t have more than one husband that kills me. Tit for tat, that’s the way it should be. Equal. I’d have to hold him down and shave all that creepy long hair off.


  4. Okay, I have finally found a post of yours that I disagree on! I have watched this show. I have been fascinated by this show. This chic has 19 kids. She is 40 something years old. She looks better than me. She is calm and collected. All of her kids always look nice. She does stuff like work out and travel (to give speeches about having 19 kids) and she obviously has lots of sex. All the kids do the majority of work around the house including taking care of the little kids. She also moved grandma in to do all of the laundry. Basically, if you have 19 kids, your life is a bed of roses. I can’t get my crap together just having 3 kids! I usually look like a cyclone just hit me. My kids are usually dressed weird. No one would ever want to move in with us and do my laundry. This lady is absolutely brilliant!! It makes me sorry my husband got snipped last year. We could have been living the dream!

      I hope she is using the honoraria from her speaking engagements to get some intensive psychotherapy.

      Sure, there’s something to be said for treating your children and thier grandmother like chattel. Frankly, her technique smacks of forced labor to me. If they weren’t her underage children she was pressing into service, she would be in jail, no? I’ll see if I can round up some of the neighbor kids to “help” me with the chores. We’ll just see how that goes, LOL.

      I’ll give you that she has a great deal of sex. But look who she has to have it with. Though she’s no prize herself. Of course, neither am I.

      Don’t fret about not looking as good as Mrs. Duggar, I’m sure you look just fine. You would probably take a little more care if your life were being filmed. Lord knows I would. The only show I have even the remotest possibility of making an appearance, other than “Cops”, of course, would be “Hoarders”.

      I will give you this: Your perspective is refreshing.


      • I thought for sure I was going to change your outlook on this positively inspiring concept of having 19 kids! haha!! Hence, I see you are stubborn and uncooperative to this idea. However, if your hoarding or criminal activity gets out of control please know you can move in with me and do my laundry!
