  1. TLC’s Best Funeral Ever Starts in Two Weeks, Network Sinks Even Lower

    What happened to you TLC? Years ago, you used to be all about expanding the craniums of your audience, and now you spend your days doing the exact opposite by rotting our minds with senseless reality TV garbage. In yet another instance of the network showing it has no sense of personal dignity, which was lost the moment they started airing Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,TLC is airing Best Funeral Ever: A special/backdoor pilot about the Golden Gates Funeral Home taking what is typically a solemn affair and transforming it into a gaudy, irreverent spectacle that will most likely draw in millions of viewers by their noses. Who are we kidding? We're probably going to be right there watching it with everybody else.

  4. Woman is Addicted to Eating the Ashes of Her Late Husband

    The TLC show My Strange Addiction features people with, well, strange addictions including some notable subjects addicted to things like eating powdered cleaning products, taking laxitives, and now eating ashes of a deceased family member. Casie, the ash-eater in question, recently lost her husband to a freak asthma attack and has since developed not only a strong compulsion to keep his ashes at her side at all times but also to eat them.

    The behavior reportedly started when Casie was transferring the ashes from a box to a special urn. She got some ashes on her finger and, not wanting to just brush them off, licked them off, starting a habit that has become compulsive. At the time the episode was filmed, Casie had been eating the ashes for two months. In total, she is reported to have ingested about six pounds of the ashes, despite the fact that they taste awful, something Casie is willing to admit.
