Welcome to another edition of Wacky Wednesday!! Today I'm gonna tell you folks about the wackiest damn TV show I have seen in a looooooooong time. My kids were flippin' through the channels the other night and stumbled upon this show on SyFy called "Total Blackout". Have you had the pleasure of checkin' it out? It's sort of like a game show where the contestants are in a completely blacked out room and have to use all of their senses, except sight, to guess what certain items are. MY GAWD, the things these people have to endure are completely hideous. I actually took some pictures of my TV screen so you could see the wackiness for yourself, 'cause I just couldn't believe me eyes!!!
Yeppers, you are seeing that correctly. The contestant is smelling that dude's sweaty armpit and trying to guess what that horrendous scent might be. Remember the contestants can't see anything because the room is blacked out. Can you even imagine if she got too close and an armpit hair tickled her nose? LAWD, I would freak out!!!! And do ya think that burly dude had to perform some sort of exercise first to get his sweat glands in high gear? Shockingly, this odor was difficult to diagnose. I can't remember exactly, but I believe some of the guesses were feet, a skunk and mildew. Seems like somebody needs a shower and some deodorant if his pits were smellin' like that.
Then these unsuspecting fools had to eat fish eggs off a giant mountain of a belly. This contestant actually laughed when he touched this woman's abdomen 'cause he figured out purty darn quickly she was no slim pickins. However, mostly everybody guessed caviar or fish eggs right off the bat. Obviously a no brainer. Another challenge was licking champagne out of a guy's belly button. Now I love me some champagne, and I'm certain I coulda nailed that taste test, but I'll be damned if I'm gonna ruin that deliciousness with some stranger's belly button lint. Talk about a buzz kill.
Seriously folks, I don't know what the monetary prize value of this wacky game show might have been, but would any of you actually subject yourselves to this kinda torture? I got two stinky teenage boys at home so I know ALL about offensive odors. Problem is, I see it and smell it in the light of day and there ain't no prize for dear old Mom, unless you count being able to survive the infamous Dutch oven.
