News from Shakes Manor

Last night, Iain asked me to suggest something to watch that wouldn't involve too much brain power, i.e. none of the (enlightening but emotionally draining) documentaries I favor about subjects frequently described by other people as "depressing," and no long-ass dramas one might reasonably expect to co-star Tom Wilkinson.

So I suggested Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus.

About five minutes into it, Iain said, "I thought this was gonnae be a documentary!"

Which: A) Made me laugh for nine bajillion years; and B) Shows you how totally SHIT the Discovery Channel and its associated brands have really become that it's actually totally reasonable, upon consideration, that there might be a documentary called "Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus."
