Reality TV = Mushy Brain

Tracy here. I'm afraid that reality tv has sucked in my brain and made it mushy. I had avoided them for quite awhile and then I decided that The Amazing Race would help Whitney learn geography. I swore I wouldn't watch all of the Fear Factor/Survivor type of shows. Well I should have known better. Pretty soon others followed like Project Runway and Top Chef. Those aren't too bad but of course it couldn't stop there. The latest bad one on is Redneck Wedding on CMT. Oh my goodness. It's hard to believe that these are real people. For those of you who are smart and don't watch it, it is a couple who are getting married but they are the biggest rednecks you can imagine. Wedding dresses that are bedazzled with the groom's name or even worse, duct tape to keep a dress together in the back because the bride is too large for it. Instead of cutting the cake, they mud dive and ride off into the sunset on matching 4 wheelers. Of course, I'm only making things worse by watching. If people didn't watch them, then they wouldn't make shows like this. So I guess I'm responsible for the dumbing down of America and the mushy brain syndrome.

I stand before you with head lowered hoping you forgive me for ruinng America's youth.

I plead guilty to exposing you to redneck wedding. It is kind of like driving by an accident.......you just have to stop and look.

Update...We went to dinner with friends and somehow the discussion came to Redneck Weddings and she watches it too. We passed stories along to each other about the different characters involved and it was so sad.

Hey Janet, not to worry. there is nothing wrong with being a redneck. I am just a "little bit" redneck just like you are. Mostly it was because of your diaper slinging!lol
