Someone Must Do Something About "Toddlers and Tiaras"

Posted By on Thu, Sep 15, 2011 at 5:05 PM

Here's my idea:

The government sends out an email or a letter or something to every parent of a pageant-aged girl in the country, saying they've been selected to appear on the new season of Toddlers and Tiaras. Everyone who replies that they would love to be on the show, we take away their kids and give them to someone sane and with a sense of decency.

On a civil liberties level, this is an uncomfortable proposition, but sometimes we have to step out from our boundaries for the greater good. I guess you could email the Learning Channel (what do you call it when the name of something reflects an alternate reality from what it describes?) and ask them to take the show off the air for the benefit of society, but I might like my idea better. The show only reflects a disturbing world that will continue to exist without the spotlight of the show. Let's solve the problem at the source.
