I was channel surfing the other day and clicked on the “Guide” to see it there was anything interesting in the evening line-up. The local CBS affiliate was scheduled to broadcast an episode of “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” titled “House of Hoarders.” The program description was listed as follows: “Hoarder becomes a murder suspect after a dead body is found in her piles.”
Think about that for a second—if you have to.
Talk about a thorough investigation! I broke out in a roar of laughter, nearly doubling over in the process. I was laughing so hard and for so long that the dog and cat came running to find out what was the matter with me. Staring at me wide-eyed they looked a little worried, as if wondering if someone should call for the guys in the white coats with the nets. They must have thought I had gone bonkers for sure.
When I had recovered enough to click the “Info” button again I saw the extended program description. It ended “. . . her piles of trash.” I think the “Guide” editor must have decided to have a little fun with the program description. For that I say “Thanks” for the best laugh I’ve had in days.
