WTF Wednesday is a semi-regular feature of this blog. It documents the things that have made me pause, slap my forehead and say "What the f**k!" Well, that and I just like saying WTF. I'm retired. I don't have to watch what I say anymore. I'm not any one's role model.
A year or so ago my daughter and I were looking at DVDs when I noticed a cartoon series with vegetable characters called Veggie Tales.
"What kid would want to watch cartoon vegetables?" I commented to my daughter.
Readers who have small children have probably heard about Veggie Tales. I had never heard of them and my daughter filled me in. Veggie Tales is an animated series that features vegetables acting out Bible stories.
What the f**k? Vegetables telling Bible stories? ...and it's on TV? ...and kids actually watch it?
This is not a joke. The series exists and it is really cartoon vegetables acting out Bible stories like Daniel in the Lion's Den, or David and Goliath.
Can you imagine the production meeting where this idea was first proposed?
I know that God works in mysterious ways, but this one is more than mysterious; It's weird.
Nana did NOT buy the DVD for the granddaughters!
