I swear I am not making any of this up.

I turned on the TV five minutes ago and on TLC there is a brand new program called Paint Misbehavin’, about a paint company. A really edgy paint company that, you know, invents paint. It’s owned by a tattooed yellow-goatee-ed guy named Steve (okay) and there are various other Gen X people working there (still okay), an Indian scientist named Arup with a really heavy accent and an obvious toupee (wha…?) and a voice-over guy. With a pronounced lisp. How, HOW, I ask you, am I not supposed to laugh at this? First, the Indian guy sounds exactly like every stereotypical Indian in every movie, and then the voice-over guy comes on and tells us, “With all these thetbackth, Thteve may not make hith deadline.” I’m trying really, really hard not to giggle.


Could someone go and watch this show, and tell me you chortled to yourself as well, so I don’t feel so bad about myself? Thank you.
