Bill, you're a disarmingly stupid man.
Thanks, (insert your real name). My new favorite phrase is "that gorgon of a mother." I'm glad Squatchy spoke.
One more reason you shouldn't insult my editor(s): It was much more offensive before it was edited. Anyway, there's a long tradition of satirical criticism, and it's meant to amuse -- not to, as you implore, explore a sincere "discussion of the issue." It's a joke. You either get it or you don't.
Well, first of all, Timm!, don't blame the editorial staff. They're just allowing me some satirical freedom. But nothing I wrote was untrue. It's not her fault that she's creepy, fat, and monstrous -- but, if she doesn't do something to reverse the trend in the next decade or so, it will become her fault.
This review originally ended much funnier:
But even worse, the episodes end with lessons – a bunch of bumper-sticker moralizing about embracing family. If you watch the show, you should heed its lesson, though. Hug your family tight, pray to a benevolent God for mercy, and prepare to be trampled by one of the Four Horsemen of biblical lore.
To Paul (assuming you're real): Yes, I'm a jerk. I also don't use the [blank]-[anything] technique. Advance an actual argument, assuming you want to debate, and then I'll respond properly.
Who cares? Why would someone even bother writing about this dead horse of a show?
