Doll Swap

Last night was Taco Night at Fritz's. It's also Crappy TV night. I know Bou, Caltechgirl, Denny, Teresa... hell, probably most everyone... all watch "24". Looks like a cool show, but I think I'll wait until someone lends me the whole season to watch it.

What little bit of television I do watch, is all caught at Fritz's. Around suppertime, we all watch and play along to "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire". Mmmmeredith.... Then it's usually just bouncing around until we find a good movie or something.

Taco Night used to bring "Fear Factor"... a stupid show, but great TV for the bar. Between the folks chomping on offal, and the running commentary from those sitting at the bar, it was a blast. Unfortunately, the show is no longer on Monday. Now we've been stuck with "Wife Swap". Now there's a show for ya... *rolling eyes*

It's such a bunch of crap, I can't really understand why it's made it so frickin' big. Two totally different families swap wives/mothers and then deal with the baggage each brings to their new home. For one week, the woman has to go by the rules set forth by the woman of the house. After that, she's free to unleash her ideas and rules. People end up pissing each other off, but in the end, everything turns up roses. Maybe not everytime, but when I've seen it, it always works out...

Last night we proposed some ideas that might make for some interesting shows. Made for plenty o laughs. Rich woman/homeless woman swap, and such. Then I wondered if they've ever had someone swap their wife for a blow up doll (hey... some weirdo may actually "marry" one someday). That led to a very entertaining discussion. But rather than discuss what all we came up with, I'll leave it to you...

What do you think would be the benefits/setbacks in such a swap?

Hmmmm... benefits/setbacks... okay.

How about:
always available/occasionally sticky (or flat?)
Not a big fan of the show myself -- just seems like a really bad idea...

I'd have to agree, it sounds like a stupid show. Don't intend to watch it either. ;) Hey..I have enough trouble keeping my own spouse in line. :D

Not too sure about the benefits/setbacks but I do know of a contestant that would go for that (in a couple of months lol he just got married). He has experience with dolls. We gave him one a few years back that traveled with him to Florida and back. I wonder if new wife realizes she and blow up doll have the same hairstyle!
