There's a soap opera on CBS TV right now with the sound off while Im listening to Thom. Its hilarious to make up your own dialogue. Two women are tied together on the floor of a wine cellar. They've been there, bitching at each other for a half-hour:

(Brunette) "SKROO THAT! It was YOUR nephew who is up to his neck in debt with the CHURCH! Those weren't SWAT teams, they were DEACONS!"
