Holy Guacamole!

Those of you in the NY Metropolitan area are probably familiar with a local cable channel called Telecare. It's basically run by the Rockville Centre Diocese of the Roman Catholic Church. As you would assume, lots of religious programming. Ministry this, ministry that, ministry coming out of your ass. You know the drill. I'm sure most places around the country have similar television stations.

Anywho, we were doing the old remote control boogie last night, and Gia came across a cooking show on that station. And. It. Was. Awesome!

I'm not gonna post any screenshots or go into extreme detail, because, even though I'm more of an unbeliever, why risk that particular Hell, eh? Let's just say that it was hosted by a priest who looks like the Dad from Family Guy.

His chin does look like a set of balls.
And Fr. Griffin was joined by two other priests.  One who looked a bit like an extra from The Sopranos and the other kinda looked like my old friend Bob Balaban.  They were making pasta primavera from leftovers in the fridge. It was fascinating television.  Really.

The show wasn't really about cooking, however.  It was more about these three guys talking about how much being a priest kicks ass.  People come over and cook for you or they leave groceries.  And...yeah, that was about it.  Oh, lots of discussion about the people's lives that they've touched and the folks who touched them in return.  Said without a hint of irony, by the way.

Um, how long until the the Fall Television Season starts?

B.E. Earl said...

I'd noticed that his chin looks like a pair of orchestras (Cockney rhyming slang - think about it) some time ago.

Now the secret's out...

B.E. Earl said...

Wabbit - Hmmm...is is supposed to rhyme with testes? Cuz that's not how we pronounce orchestra.

white rabbit said...

Earl - Orchestra Stalls = Balls

Orchestras for short

QED :D

There's some good TV still on. I already saw Mad Men and True Blood mentioned, plus there's Top Chef, Top Shot, Louie on FX (Louis CK's show), and Tosh.0.

B.E. Earl said...

Wabbit- Aha!

Adam - I love the new Louie show on FX and Tosh.0! I have to watch Season 2 of True Blood before I can continue.
