laboring day

Happy Labor Day, everybody. Labor Day, which was created to give the workin’ man a day off, has signaled the end of summer for generations. It’s also one of many holidays that don’t apply to journalists.

Not that I mind being at work on a low-key kind of day like today. I got my copy pushed early and I’ve been uploading to the Web and watching episodes of “Maury” on Fancast.

In a shocking move, this episode also deals with a woman who has about 11 possibilities for the father of her baby. In her epic words of wisdom, she observes, “I din’nt make him on my own, I ain’t gonna raise him on my own.” She then proceeds to beat the living crap out of the guy when he comes out on stage.

Maybe I’m still Mary Sunshine, Pollyanna of the Northern Panhandle, but I really can’t imagine NOT knowing who the father of your baby is. Maybe it’s because I’m good at serial monogamy. Managing ONE man is a full-time job for me on top of actually going to work. I couldn’t imagine trying to throw another one or six into the mix.

Oh … breaking news … You are NOT the father. And I love when they argue with science. “That test is wrong, I know he my baby daddy.”

My friends, knowing as you do that I love trash TV, got any other show recommendations for the second part of the day? Or should I not mix it up and keep on loving the decline of the human condition with paternity disputes?

    Head on over to “girls next door” for some bimbo-ness at its finest. 😉

    I saw half an episode of that yesterday and wanted to break someone’s neck. I can’t handle that. I just want to kill people …

    That sign just made my day. I figure one day Maury realized the drama of the paternity test was gone after 99% of the dudes brought on were the father. Now we get these women who has 99 different possible fathers for their kids and BAM, quality television!

    Have you ever seen The Steve Wilkos Show? I just saw this for the first time the other day. He called his guest “a piece of crap”.

    I’ve never seen the Steve Wilkos show, but this gives me something to aim for. I’d love to see that. I just have such an affinity for terrible television.
