#156 – Baggage

Photo taken: April 17, 2015

The world has a funny way of telling you things.  Say you were responding to a prompt challenge on your blog about ponies and thought it would be cute to grab the four My Little Pony figurines you have for some reason and line them up in front of the television to create a kind of Mystery Science Theater 3000 parody post.  So you go about flipping through the infinitely shitty channels your cable service provides and taking pictures of the ponies “watching” various programs to “mock” for your audience’s pleasure.  Then you stumble upon the awful Jerry Springer game show Baggage, a relationship show where contestants have to share their most fucked up traits with a potential date to see if they’d still want to be seen in public with them.  Oh, this will be fun, you say to yourself!  The ponies will have a field day picking some poor schmuck’s baggage apart!  And then the young man’s baggage is revealed.  And if you can’t quite make out what it says on the card up there, allow me to print it out loud for everyone to see….

“I have 250 unicorn figurines in my room”

The odds of coming across such a self-revealing screenshot as that while you have your very own unicorn figurines lined up watching it is….. well…… ugh.  At least I know someone to team up with now to put together a kickass episode of Shelf Critter Theatre…

  1. Haha! That’s too perfect!

    • I was only familiar with it via my Grandma, who kept the TV locked on GSN (for the old time game shows, but she left it on for the newer ones like this too). Otherwise, I might have never fully realized what a hilarious coincidence this picture turned to be!

  2. Have never seen that show but it sounds like a “doozy”. I imagine it’s nice for you to know that you aren’t the only unicorn collector who proudly waves his “Member of the Unicorn Union” flag. Too bad you don’t have this guy’s email address. Or do you??

    I dunno, a shelf full of critters is one thing, but 250 unicorn figurines…?

    I don’t have 250 objects of anything. Call me a minimalist… or sane. That works, too.

    • I can’t imagine having that many figurines… even I don’t have THAT many critters. You’d need a whole room for a unicorn stable like that. Unless they slept in the bed with you…

  5. LOVE the Mystery Science Theater 3000 mimicry. With Jerry Springer no less, adding even more to it parody.

    LOL! I can’t even think of the right words (I must be getting a migraine) but I’ll be giggling about this all morning. What are the odds that you turn on the TV for the ponies at that moment? 😂

    • The TV screen may as well just flipped to the local access channel and had a flashing message that said “YOU’RE A LOSER!” Well, maybe not that big of a loser since I’m well below 250 unicorns. That is a lot of critters to have all in one place!

    LOL!! 250 ?? oh boy!
