Describe The 700 Club for Me…

A reader passes along what may be the most appropriate description of Christian television ever seen:

    We have a new “Truth in Advertising” law I didn’t hear about…? ;)

  • Former Thumper

    I’ll bet you that that particular episode was about a scam and the description just happened to fit so beautifully.

    They gladly accept funds from simpletons and fools also.  I can only watch it for about 5 – 10 minutes before I double over from laughter.  The show consists of faux “news reports,” fake commercials, which are actually appeals for money, Q&A sessions, where a semi-attractive, female “anchorperson” poses fake questions from imaginary viewers to a babbling old dimwit (Pat Robertson) who displays a blank smile.  He kind of reminds me an old guy who lived on the next block – he got kind of funny and was put away in sanitorium.  Last I heard, he was walking into ladies’ rooms wearing no pants and seeing imaginary animals in his room.

    I was too distracted by “COX WACX” to get the 700 Club joke.


    The 700 Club may be a scam but, on the other hand, anyone stupid enough to listen to Pat Robertson may very well deserve what ever happens to them.

    Dear Person(s) that Writes the Descriptions for TV Guides:

     I love you all for all the unintentional (and sometimes obviously intentional) lolz I get while flicking through the channels.  Seriously, you make my day (and insomniac middle of the night) brighter with your work.

    “Last I heard, he was walking into ladies’ rooms wearing no pants and seeing imaginary animals in his room.

    Whoa… sounds like my LSD and mescaline fueled road trips back in the 70′s.

    Finally, truth in advertising.

     You poor fool! Wait till you see those goddamn bats.

    Probably scaring seniors about ID theft, huge boogeyman, while they ate perpetuating it by pretending to be Christian
