Happy Friday!: WTF Edition!

Vomiting Kibbles and Bits
What do you get when you cross the latest in Reality Competition trends like Project Runway/Shear Genius and Animal Planet? The latest in absurdity! Yup, that's right! In a desperate attempt for ratings and/or, er, new hardly creative ideas Animal Planet decided to go ahead and green light a show where "professional" dog groomers blow-and-dry it out in a competition-reality to see who is America's best Dog Groomer. Uh, yeah- I'm not kidding.

The show is called Groomer Has It and, no joke, it's a real show. The icing on the cake is that it's hosted by the Queer Eye's most unnecessary cast member, Jai Rodriguez. You know him- he was the Fab 5 guy who used to give such stellar advice as: "Girls like music. You should think about buying her a CD. That'd really score points." Great. Thanks Jai.

Ugh. I'd rather watch the Lie Detector shit over this one...

Jai is a bad gay.

Bad, bad gay - no designer t-shirt for you Jai!

He's reason enough not to watch the show.

but I do love them furry creatures!

Now I want to pitch a body grooming show to one of the cable channels. 'Fur l'amour' or 'follicular follies' or something in that line.

Eric- watch out - you would be a prime recruiting target

Jai was my least favorite. I liked when they tried to bring him forward and sort of "host" the show--disaster.

I heard he actually tried to get a rumor out that he was straight. Even though I have no proof, there's enough truthiness to it for me to keep saying it.

Set TiVo to stun... no way is that show getting recorded, ever.

Jai and I went to school together and are still mutual acquaintances.

I'm a dog perv, so much so that - for the first time in my life - I find myself jealous of Jai.

Fuck the money he earned from Queer Eye - he gets to hang out with DOZENS OF DOGS!
