My parents were very protective of me while I was growing up.
I never watched E.T., Star Wars, and other popular movies. My parents thought that they were too violent or would tempt me into devil worship if I watched them.
My turkey sandwiches were served only with lettuce and I wasn’t allowed mayonnaise of mustard because I might get too excited.
And I was only allowed to drink water. Distilled water.
I was only allowed to count as high as 22 because anything higher than that was “showing off.”
Life was interesting.
All of this overprotection may have affected me as an adult. I can’t tell for certain but I know it is a possibility.
It is kind of difficult to serve me a room temperature glass of distilled water like Mother used to make on a warm summer day.
This is all fine though because I realized that they tried to protect me from a TV show so vile that it chills my bones to even mention its name.
I wish that I never turned on the TV and watched that episode when my parents were outside fighting back when I was young.
Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood
I gathered some of my data from this article on Mental Floss.
Mister Rogers was a college dropout. Had I been influenced by his show, I would have likely dropped out of college even earlier than I already had.
He lied to kids and told them not to be afraid of haircuts or the drain in the bathtub. Well Mister Rogers, I am terrified of haircuts and have even had my ear cut during a haircut. Children could have been better prepared if not for your agenda.
Oh, and I see roaches and spiders being sucked into the drain almost every time I use the shower. What do you have to say about that?
What about the psychological terror you inflict on kids at the start of every show when you ‘threaten’ them with nudity as you begin to undress in front of the camera. Then you always smirk and put the clothes back on but I know that kids are mentally scarred at thought of your naked withered body that you threaten to show at the start of each episode.
Oh and he was also a sniper in Korea or something.
Let’s end with a quote from this monster: (I am going off of memory from that one episode when I was a kid but I’m sure it’s pretty close)
“Some days, even the devil sits back and admires my work”
