More Food Network

I've mentioned before that there's a lot of Food Network at our home. Wholesome stuff, unobjectionable commercials, we often learn useful tips. However, we've been less than impressed lately with the proliferation of contests and reality shows, when we'd rather actually learn something!

So last night JoyDad flipped on the TV as we often do after Joy's last therapy session of the day, only to find that a funny and educational show was replaced by a contest. His disgusted comment: "Well, that stinks! Instead of Good Eats, we get Chopped!

Two beats later, we hear an explosive echo from Joy: "Chah!"

Coincidence? Or something else? Only Elvis knows for sure...

Elvis, is that you?

I'll be really impressed if Joy ever says "thankyouverymuch..."

I just sent a message to Food Network complaining about the loss of "Good Eats" and the general trend of ever more ludicrous contests and competitions crowding out the cooking shows.

I think she was hoping you wouldn't change the channel...

Chaaa!

The Elvis moments seem to be showing up with greater frequency lately. I think he wants to stay in the building for a while!

...Or she was sharing in her father's frustration. "Good Eats" sounds way better than "Chopped."
