How Sad Is This?

Everyone knows how boring life gets at Casa Crotchety, but I believe we hit a new low today. After watching the Yankee game, I scanned the channels to try to find something--anything--and wound up watching a PBS special about the history of ketchup.
Wait, that's not the sad part.

At the end of the program, an address was given in order to buy a DVD of the show. Somewhere, someone must have ordered it.

Yeah, probabaly
But it gets even worse.

According to TMZ, Sacha Baron Cohen was injured in an anal bleaching accident.

While it is important to try to learn something new every day, is it possible that one can learn too much?

I had a comment ready, until I read "anal bleaching". What is this anal bleaching? Great, I'll have to ask the man and I'm sure I'll never live it down..

PJ said...

ROFLMAO!!!! i just about spit coffee all over the screen!!!

Winky Twinky said...

NO self cleaning undies??? What is this??? hmmm.... explain thyself DOM......

The Offended Blogger said...

Hey, *I* own that DVD and *I* suffered from an unfortunate anal bleaching incident, too!

Hmpfh.

You are turning into such a snob. :p

Mr. Condescending said...

I thought PBS just did those fund raising telethons. I used to keep calling just to hear the phone ring on the tv, then hang up.

Lauren said...

To answer your question: I don't know and I'd rather not find out. LOL

Jenn Thorson said...

Living here in the land of Heinz, I imagine half of those DVDs were ordered by folks right here in my beloved city...

A city of weirdos, of course...

But still beloved.

ReformingGeek said...

I couldn't watch the Yankee....er...I mean Rangers game but I heard we didn't exactly welcome Tex with open arms.

Anal bleaching....hum....scary.

Secondary Roads said...

I'll settle for "Don't ask" if you "Don't tell." Because, yes, there is such a thing as too much information.

Joel Klebanoff said...

PLEASE tell me that's a joke. As others here have asked, what the hell is anal bleaching?

No, on second thought, PLEASE don't answer that question. The answer is probably an example of something that does not fall in the category of "too much information," but rather the category of "WAY too much information!"

Don said...

I've watched a lot of shows on history of stuff. I like them...
Did the moron try to drink the anal bleach? What a dimwit. Everybody knows that you wash your underwear with it. Jeez!

Anna Liffen said...

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pricilla said...

My poor goat brain simply cannot process such information.
Nor do I put ketchup on my weeds.

Me-Me King said...

Just as I hope I never have a condition that causes me to have use Gold Bond Powder, the same goes for anal bleaching.

Da Old Man said...

@ Nipsy: How can I explain this? ....Hmmm. Ok, some folks have way too much money, and are way too vain. These folks decided that a portion of their butts are ermmm, brown, and they would prefer it be a more pleasing color such as pinkish/white. Hence, anal bleaching was born.

@ PJ: Glad you liked the post.

@ Winky: Please see comment reply #1.

@ Offended: Sorry :(

@ Mr Condescending: They do a lot of wacky programming in those couple weeks when they aren't raising money.

@ Lauren: Too late. I already answered.

@ Jenn: That would make them a city of weirdos. I love ketchup, but have no interest in the DVD

@ Reforming: It was a great game, though closer than I like.

@ Secondary: This would fall under that umbrella.

@ Joel: Not a joke. Confirmed via the Google.

@ Don: I'm not sure what he did with it. Apparently it's ok to tell others there was an anal bleaching accident, but not what was done wrong. Assuming there is a right anal bleaching technique.

@ Anna: Glad you liked it
:)

@ Pricilla: You are better off not even trying.

@ Me-Me: Good choice

Michiganderlady said...

Ummmmm....pretty gross there Crotchety.
Tell the Mrs. to take you for a drive...you need to get out more. :)

Jen said...

What is anal bleaching? Why would anyone want to do it and just what is being bleached? I tried bleaching my teeth once and it hurt I can't imagine what it would be like to bleach my anus.

As for the ketchup, I'd buy that dvd. There are days when there is really nothing on to watch and it might come in handy. Of course I scan the history channel just for those kinds of shows. Do they have one on mustard, relish or wet wipes?

Nooter said...

mmm.... ketchup...

The Hawg! said...

To answer your final question -- yes. It is possible to learn too much.

I learned that right after I got married (the first time, even). If a woman complains about something, you ask about it and she responds with, "You don't want to know" -- she's right. You really don't want to know...

Chris @ Maugeritaville said...

Yeah, but after yesterday's Yankee game, what could possibly ruin that? It was Texas that couldn't "ketchup".

Jeez, I crack myself up.

Tiggy said...

I just googled 'anal bleaching' and yes, I agree you sometimes can learn too much in a day.

Swirl Girl said...

oy vey - or should I say is Mr. Cohen going for a (wait for it)...holy shit?

Mike said...

what the HELL is anal bleaching?

Sounds like something Chelle would do ;)

Da Old Man said...

@ Michiganderlady: Thank you.

@ Jen: There is a mustard one. I'm sad to say I've seen it.

@ Nooter: It is my favorite, too.

@ The Hawg: Absolutely true

@ Chris: I enjoy those types of games, too.

@ Tiggy: I told you so.

@ Swirl Girl: It was worth the wait.

@ Mike: I ain't saying.

Lin said...

TMI!!! Why do you have to bleach your bum? And how do you know when it is time? I can't see mine. Gees, I hope someone clues me in when it is time.

Ewww, ketchup?? Now mustard I could see--but ketchup?? REally.

dizzblnd said...

You better slow down on the PBS specials.. you're brain will soon explode from too much useless drivel

Da Old Man said...

@ Lin: Mustard even has a university--Poupon U.
Ketchup is just like the ugly step child.

@ Dizz: I do worry about that.

Marie said...

As far as my daughter is concerned, one can never know too much about ketchup.

But the other? I cannot even contemplate...except maybe to comment as a mom: some people get exactly what they deserve.

Mary@Holy Mackerel said...

I've actually often wondered about the history of ketchup. Must be very very interesting. I'm sure, though, the DVD is much too expensive for me to afford at the moment...dammit.

Janna said...

Perhaps someday there will be a PBS special on anal bleaching.

Now THAT would be worth buying.

Lucy - the hoeno one said...

Whenever I look at a picture of Cohen, I think to myself 'There is a man who would be involved in an anal bleaching incident.' Then I laugh hysterically, followed by a strange craving for ketchup. So, this post hits really close to home for those reasons.
