    I also watch cooking shows the same way I watch sports.

    I have an ongoing argument with Dr. Mrs who loves that f-cking show. I am convinced the entire show is just an ad placed by those manufacturers.

    I'm also convinced every couple on that show sounds like this: "I'm a part-time kindergarten teacher and my husband hangs potatoes in garages for a living. We're looking for a downtown penthouse loft and our budget is 5 million dollars."

    Fun fact - the redneck part of my family had a house they built on Big Pine Key, FL featured in that show a few years back. Right down to the "skeleton/pirate" my uncle keeps in the backyard.

    HH International is better. Fewer demands, and often cuter couples (duh).

    They're always from SoCal or Scottsdale. Trust fund kids.

    I prefer Fixer Upper. Though Flip or Flop is so flippin predictable on blown estimates and the hidden disaster that will run the cost up by $10K.

    I'm waiting for Tarik to whip out the gun and start blasting the walls.

    I know a couple that was on the show. They had already bought their house. They were then instructed to try and say bad things about their house, and good things about the other houses (which were picked for them to look through) so that viewers will be guessing which house they picked.

    This seems to be the standard practice. You can usually predict which house will be "chosen" because it's the one with no furniture in it. The others are still on the market and have stuff in them, but the lucky "winner" has already been vacated by the seller because the couple on the show has bought it.

    Husband is drinking wine...

    Wife: I thought you were having a dry January!
    Husband: This is dry; it's a Sauvignon Blanc.

    Hamburger Helper only works if the hamburger is willing to accept that it needs help.

    Also, I opened a box of Suddenly Salad two hours ago, and I'm still waiting.

    In a hotel lobby, a man accidentally elbows a woman in the chest. Man turns to the woman and says, "if your heart is as soft as your breast, I know you'll forgive me." Woman responds, "and if your dick is as hard as your elbow, I'm in room 457."
