Now we upgraded to a slightly larger range of cable channels as part of Comcast's Triple Play. Which means we get a few free "on demand" shows. One is "What Not to Wear." Kid and I have watched a couple. They seem to follow a basic story arc: woman is secretly filmed wearing her ugly clothes, goes on show, Clinton and Stacy trash her clothes (literally), there is a minor crisis where it looks like she can't or won't change, then she looks beautiful.
The first one we saw involved a former exotic dancer who always pinned a tail and a bell to her butt and wore a crazy mix of clothes. Clinton, holding up a size 6X top (ie, for a six year old child): "Just because you can get your head through it doesn't mean it fits."
The one we watched yesterday was about a recycling advocate who dressed in castoffs and her husband's clothes. A lot of shapeless stuff. But, I thought, probably practical, given that she has to actually touch a lot of the recycling.
So we started imagining what would have happened if Mother Theresa had gone on the show.
Stacy as she fills a garbage can: "You've got a cute figure and you hide it underneath these shapeless saris!"
Clinton: "Just because you're working with lepers doesn't mean you can't show off your hot body!"
