Amishing you already…

Dame Fortune is a contrary old biddy.

Who’d have thought that in a week when Channel 4 had this scheduled, that this would hit the headlines?

Yes, it’s those zany Amish characters cropping up all over the fucking place in the media.

The big news is in the US and concerns a bizarre case in which some Amish decided to disgrace some other Amish by cutting off their hair and beards and there’s also talk of people being imprisoned in a chicken coop.

Oh yes, there’s sex, too.

This attractive character…

…who goes by the name of Samuel Mullet – and that’s worth a cheap laugh in itself – has been

taking married women into his home so that he could "cleanse them of the devil with acts of sexual intimacy".

Yeah, right…

My money’s on him taking these women into his home just to get his dirty little end away, but I’m no religious expert, as regular readers know full well.

Well, that’s the hard Amish news, but what’s this over on Channel 4?

Why, it’s yet another variation on the reality TV idea of putting people into a bizarre situation that they have never been in before and watching them react to it – and hopefully suffer some sort of mental trauma that we can laugh at.

So, we have this televisual delight gracing our screens tonight:

Eton College student George, Cambridge University undergraduate Siana, spoilt 18-year-old Charlotte, media studies student Jordan and 17-year-olds Hannah, a Christian, and James, who lives in a London hostel, join Amish communities for six weeks to learn about their way of life. They begin at Middlefield, Ohio, where they meet a family who want to teach them that, despite the lack of material possessions, life can be equally fulfilling.

Fucking yawn…

Oh well, if it’s good enough for the BBC, it’s good enough for me, so I really feel I must state that:

other piles of festering goat wank are available for your viewing pleasure.

G’night, all…

    Not so fast! It was actually very, very good. The results….well, you’ll be surprised.
