Who Writes The Titles?

It would be difficult to assemble 300 plus TV channels and not have one of them be worth watching. But DirecTv has done just that. The Clemson vs. Florida State football game went out of control early so I pushed 'Guide' to see what was on.
I found the program called: Get The Body You Deserve.
I thought about that for a moment. I thought "Isn't that the problem?" I already have the body I deserve. What I would like is a body I don't deserve.

Amen!

I Cliff, I guess I don't have much to say about this. It is because of the saying, "People who live in glass houses ... "

Me too!

The body you don't deserve.

Hmmm. Wouldn't that be Marilyn?

Rachel said...

Very funny Jerry!!

Yep, me too!

You are SO right about ALL those channels having diddly squat to offer.
There's the string of reality shows for the braindead, the various "stuff for sale" channels for those with money to burn & waste, the talk and news programs that regurgitate the same old same old for hours on end, and then the stay fit - be healthy channels that show people exercising who have NO fat on their bodies whatsoever. They need to put some fat people on those shows and show them sweating to death with barely anything to show for it. Now, THAT'S reality TV!!
I know one thing...
I've got the bohunkus I deserve.
Darn it!!!

I don't know if there's anybody out there that I deserve. Is there anybody out there that deserves me? ;)

I work out at least three times a week, but age is catching up with me and no matter how much I am used to "sweating to the oldies" I am always pooped by the end. So I don't have the body I deserve or maybe, just maybe I have a better body than others my age because I exercise.

I completely agree with not having anything worth watching on the tube these days. Maybe, the new fall line-up will have something good.

We don't have 300 channels but maybe 40 or so. But even with 40 it is hard to find a good program. Doesn't sound like getting more channels will help the problem.

"Heroes" will soon be back, so I'm stoked about that. Can't think of anything else to watch.

When you find the shopping channel that offers the body I don't desrve for three easy payments of 39.99, let me know.

P.S. I see your boy Callahan got another 5 years and a sweet deal. Not bad for work done by Lucky, Keller and Castille. By the way... there's nothing wrong with that new kicker either! From just listening to the game, I could tell that the crowd liked him too GO BIG RED!

Pretty much like Grace, huh, Cliff? ;0)

BTW, JD's assessment was right on. I think it's hilarious that so many people watch the crap-o-rama channels with their checkbooks/credit cards in hand. Good one, JD.

Look...He's Alive!

Come on, if we could get the body we deserve, we'd all go for the same perfect body. It's the little imperfections that make the body beautiful. I'm too thin, my best friend is supposedly too fat. It makes life interesting.

BTW, I couldn't stop laughing when I read you wanted a body you don't deserve. If I see that title on Guide, I would tune in.

Peter said...

Hi Cliff, I have the body I deserve and the news is all good until we get to my height, I should be 43 inches taller it seems!!!

Kendra Lynn said...

I hate television...there is no reason for me to have one.
Those are the kind of shows I would watch if I did have tv.
lol

p.s. I got Merry off to kindergarten for the first time this morning...she did fine, and so did I. :)

Gidday Cliff,

I mentioned about my body in a earlier comment, so I don't wish to dwell on such a "touchy" subject again, after all it's not a pretty sight to see a grown man cry.
No I hadn't been attacked by a drop bear again, it's just the lapse in time in doing my next post (which is now waiting to be viewed in all it's "gory" detail) took a while to "nerve" myself to doing this next post. It's quite traumatic having to relieve these memories again.
As for the 300 channels, you're right about there not being much to entertain oneself, with all the crap that's on these days, reality shows, game shows, talk shows and so forth. Give me the early days, the 60's when TV was new and fresh and programs were much simpler to view.

Angie said...

OMG I laughed so hard, I snorted out loud!!!

let me guess, the gimmick was, "get the body you deserve for the low montly payment of $19.95 a month"

Rhodent said...

By the way, Cliff, I thought that you should know that next year (2008)is the Chinese Year of the Rat!

Cliff said...

oh goodie Rhodent

tracey said...

Wait, wait, wait...hold yer horses there. Are you saying I deserve the left over baby fat and stretch marks??? Oh, darlin', I hardly think so. So, tell me what channel that show was on. I want them to make my stretch marks go away!

Lee said...

Okay, Cliff...come out! Come out from wherever you are!

Paul said...

I curled up in laughter. Twice.

Makes me wonder if Catherine Zeta-Jones and Halli Berry ask, "You mean there's even more?"

Good.

Flip Flop Goddess said...

yup, I have the one I deserve as well...God doesnt just bless anyone with these good looks and big tata's..right Cliff?
