There is a terrifying show on TLC designed to make your sperm shrivel up and shoot into your body, if you are a man. That show is 18 and Counting. The premise of the show, from what I could gather from one episode, is that these wealthy people in Arkansas have had 18 kids and make them build things for them. Then make them play in an orchestra. Which is all I would do if I had eighteen kids.
Anyway, the stars, Jim Bob and Michelle, (yes, he actually prefers you call him Jim Bob) are going to have their nineteenth baby, so look out world. Also, their oldest is about to bring his spawn into the world, so you can look to future generations of enormous, psychotic families.
The family takes baby-making very seriously, as all their children have names that begin with J. I imagine even their nicknames would get confusing. The episode I saw was actually pretty hilarious. The family was working with a contractor to help build their house, and they gave all their children powertools. The contractor was flustered, because he’d clearly never worked with drill-wielding eight year olds.
What I want to know is, between Bridezillas, Jon and Kate Plus Eight, and this show, is how many babies is TLC trying to bring into the world?
