I had trouble sleeping last night, and not so smartly, turned to the television. While scanning the channels, I came across a show called Freaky Eaters.
The episode featured a guy who was addicted to eating raw meat. His worried brother arranged for him to meet a therapist and doctor.
Now, I love a good carpacccio or steak tartar every once in awhile, but once he started devouring chunks of the Manager's Special from the supermarket, I had to turn the channel.
A while later, I skipped past TLC again to catch a kid who was addicted to eating glass. As he bit into champagne glasses and chewed, I got a little disgusted.
Not so much at the kid with the issue, but at TLC for exploiting these people and turning their deep emotional death wishes into a freak show.
What freak show goes too far for you?
