Have I mentioned that Rhett (2) is a bit of a ham? I have no idea where he got that characteristic. He pretty much lives his life like he is on RhettTV. Which, while entertaining, has its drawbacks as in the never ending saga of Nirvana pacifier issues.

In the last pacifier episode, blog-Stedman was taking care of the boys. Rhett managed to land pee, poop and binky in the potty. The pacifier was fished out and hermetically sealed for my return...

RhettTV must have overheard how hysterical I found the daddy/binky/toilet story. Based on this audience response, RhettTV decided (as many shows do) that a sequel was essential to future ratings.

This time I took RhettTV to the potty in a PUBLIC RESTROOM. He sat down, peed and then yelled to me, "MOM!"

I looked over.

He smiled wide and deliberate.

And in slow motion as if professionally choreographed...

he released the binky from that smile,

*close up* it started rotating end over end,

falling,

falling,

falling,

maneuvered between his legs to an audible...


SPLASH!


RhettTV maintained twinkling eye contact the entire time.

And just before the credits rolled he stated triumphantly:

"My B fell down theeeerrrrreeee again!"

*laugh track*

*fade to black*


What RhettTV did not write into the script was that this mommy is absolutely NOT willing to clean anything dropped into a PUBLIC toilet.

The parent network is reviewing RhettTV's contract. RhettTV's binky episode reviews have included phrases like "over the top", "viewer backlash" and "jumping the shark". The parent network has already canceled upcoming binky episodes which has put the future of RhettTV in limbo.

OMG. I would have said, "FLUSH IT", even the first time. I just don't think I could stick my hand in there. Blaackcaughahhaggggghhhh.

Elizabeth said...

LOL!!!
I would say that Rhett's binkie definitely "jumped the shark" on that one!
Side note: I just had to explain that expression to my DH, who was in a time warp for many years....
Blessings, E

Heh.

I still haven't looked up "jump the shark" on Urban Dictionary. Yes, that's my only way to find out these things. I'm that cool.

RhettTV is headed for cancellation. and without enough episodes, there is no syndication for him.

too bad. he flushed away a promising career.

Your sis-n-law turned me onto your site... And I thanked her already. You're so funny! And yes, three boys will mess up your hair! Had to put you on my blog-roll; you're too funny to not pass on!

Eternal Sunshine said...

I can't top janet's comment! LOL!

The binky? Is dead to me...

Issa said...

The poor boy, if he keeps it up, he may just run out of binkys.

The category "out of the mouths of babes" has never been so literal.

KEEP BELIEVING

I've already pitched a RhettTV spinoff featuring binky to the network. We're meeting at Nobu tonight to discuss the possibility of moving it on up, to the east side, to a deluxe apartment in the sky.

Hammy kids will be the death of us. But we will pass with smile on our faces...

Does he realize that his Binky show is about to be canceled? He needs a guest star...I happen to be available and I work for donuts.

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

He'll be the one that drops his cell phone in the toilet at a movie theater when he's 13. Yes, it happened.

Reluctant Housewife said...

Oh. No. He. Di'n't. Heehee. He is so funny.

Eudea-Mamia said...

Just tell me it wasn't the bling!?

That little turkey-chicken. I can totally see the shit-eating grin.

No more toilet binky for you!

Mandy @ Adventures of a Millennium Mom said...

So funny!!! But I would be horrified to...
Something to look forward to: When I was in junior high my friend and I thought it would be a real laugh riot (we were total nerds) to flush the toilet at midnight on new year's eve. So midnight comes and just as we're flushing my friend's retainer falls in the toilet!

Ali said...

Hehe. It's very easy to forget just how much they get what's going on. I wouldn't be fishing it out of the toilet either.

Domestic Accident said...

I'd definitely review his contract.

Danielle said...

I hope RhettTV doesn't need to go visit Dr. Frasier Crane for some psychiatric help after that traumatic B in the P story...then, losing his contract-after everything else...poor RhettTV...

Anglophile Football Fanatic said...

i agree with your decision to not get the binky back. i hope you learned him a thing or two momma.

JCK said...

RhettTV is top of the ratings! And oh...so clever, that boy.
