Lions and tigers and puppets, oh my!

DISCLAIMER: If you or someone you love is or has ever been involved with ventriloquism, you might want to run away. You will most likely be offended. Really. Run away right now...*waits* You're still here? Okay, don't say I didn't warn you.

Tonight, I was watching the show on TLC called "My Strange Addiction". For those of you who that have not seen it, it's kind of like watching a train wreck. You find yourself peeking through your fingers or grimacing while saying really mature things like, "Eww" or "Did you see that??" Tonight's episode involved something that should scare anyone in their right mind...puppets. Not those cute little puppets that your kindergarten teacher had. No, these are the scary-ass big headed monstrosities that are used for ventriloquism.

Seriously, who among us here today are completely petrified by these things? *raises hand* Are they not right up there with clowns on the Creepy Scale? I swear, I was watching this show and the wackadoo on it with my mouth hanging open and my hand curled around the remote so as to be fully prepared in the event one of those bad boys crept up behind me.

This chick takes the puppets with her. Everywhere. They showed her and her evil sidekick hanging out in Central Park, New York. As if there aren't enough weirdys that hang out there already. These puppets were like muppets on crack and looked like they had been ridden hard and put away wet. My skin crawls even now thinking about it.

You can bet I'm sleeping with my bedroom door locked tonight. Now, will you please excuse me while I go hunt down my trusty baseball bat.


  1. I had seen the previews for that show and I cringed and said "ewwww" everytime they came on. So happily I can say I did not watch it because I knew it would gross me out!

  2. I hate clowns. Puppets aren't far behind. And I deeply detest "Madame."
