Extreme Couponing

I’m Jonny Loquasto with NewsFeed. As many of you know, there’s a new hit show on tv that chronicles people with an addiction that’s annoying & disturbing to family, friends, & strangers around them. It’s called “Extreme Couponing”. It’s exactly what it sounds like: Crazy men & women, scratch that, crazy women show off elaborate coupon schemes that are more complicated than the Di Vinci Code in order to pay next to nothing for their groceries. Here’s the problem: They’re saving money on stuff that nobody wants: Pull-up pampers, yogurt & Special K cereal? Gross. Show me huge discounts on Potato Wedges & baseball cards and maybe then I’ll re-subscribe to the Sunday paper. Now, the TLC Network did say that if “Extreme Couponing” continues to grow in popularity, they’re going to change the title of the show to the more appropriate name “The Real Housewives of the Midwest”. I’m Jonny Loquasto & you’ve been fed.
