It’s not often that a television show that refers to the Consumer Guarantees Act on a weekly basis becomes big news, but on Tuesday at 7.45pm, Target became the number one trending topic on Twitter. If you missed it, you are most likely blind with no internet because I personally can’t seem to escape the endless stream of ‘Sniffing’ and ‘Carpet’ jokes.
In short: Carpet cleaner pleasures himself into a pair of dirty knickers whilst watching porn on his customer’s home computer.
Strangely enough, the video was referred to police, and the cleaner (who has name suppression) is facing charges of burglary and willfully accessing a computer - no other charges are mentioned. (I’m not exactly sure what charges you would get for sniffing a strangers panties?) He has also been fired from the company that he was working for - who was not named on the TV Show. What a talk that would be with the wife.
Let’s take a look at a few of my favourite Tweets regarding the whole debacle:
“Sorry I haven't Tweeted for a while I have just been out on a carpet cleaning job. Have I missed anything?” - Leigh Hart.
"Let's not be too judgmental until we see what sort of job he's done on the carpets" - 3 News anchor Mike McRoberts.
“If I wanted a sick pervert who masturbates furiously to clean my carpet I'd just go to New World and hire a rug doctor” – The Edge radio host Dom Harvey.
Why the hell did I watch this: ALL NEW! TWO AND A HALF MEN!
Two and a Half Men is not everyone’s cup of tea. Some people love it, and some people would rather melt their toenails off using fiery hot pokers. Said pokers were in short supply on Wednesday night so I found myself in front of Two and a Half Men in all of its cheesy, canned laughter glory. I tried to review it but this is all I came up with:
“Giant, noisy cleaner lady makes hash brownies, hilarity ensues..wgr;orth;jorsth;ojrtsh Kill me SlgidbihZDIbd”
Haven’t we seen this storyline in about 20 other sitcoms over the years? I don’t really need to say anything else about this show.
The Show that no one can admit that they are dying to see.
If you enjoy reading timely news online, you may have come across this article on the New Zealand Herald site on Monday. Sally and Jamie Ridge have been a hot topic ever since they were seen filming the Pilot episode of their reality TV show in Ponsonby. I’m going to publicly state that I’m OK with them doing it. I mean, at least no one on the show got famous for having a golden shower. But I think I will reserve judgement until I see the finished product. I’m sure it will be the next guilty pleasure for many.
Episode 4 of Girls - 'Hannah’s Diary'
It’s only fair that I continue to follow Girls on a weekly basis, otherwise how would we follow it? So here we go.
Hannah receives an email from Adam with a picture of his junk attached, which is quickly followed up with an email that it was not meant for her. Her new workmates encourage her to break up with him (but unsurprisingly tell her to ignore their boss inappropriately touching her), which she decides to do because Marnie has been telling her the same thing. She goes to his place to dump him with a speech she has prepared (a bit cliché, but ultimately necessary for a tv show): “I just want someone who wants to hang out all the time and thinks I’m the best person in the world and wants to have sex with only me.” They then have sex.
Shoshanna meets up with a boy that she went to Jewish camp with, there are some awkward moments that result in a bit of fooling around, but when Shoshanna tells him that she’s a virgin he’s out. (Apparently he’s not into virgins.)
Jessa surprises her fellow nannies when they find out she is not a single mother, but a nanny herself. Jessa exclaims “I’m just like all of you”. Unfortunately, she’s the only white girl in the group (which I have heard is quite standard with nannies in New York), and her statement is met with dissatisfied eye rolls.
I really dislike Adam’s character. There is something quite creepy about him. I think it may have something to do with him acting like an Alpha male when he is clearly not. The way he looks, acts, and talks dirty to Hannah screams Beta. But I guess we’ll see in time.
Last but not least I thought you might like to have a squiz Kim Kardashian’s hacked IMDB page before her lawyer had it taken down:
Love her or hate her, she is mighty entertaining.
See you next week!
