Skinless chicken sucks ass

My love for fried chicken skin has come to a screeching halt. Why, you ask? Well, last evening I ordered some delicious fried chicken from my favorite pizza place. After our food was delivered, I got a drink and some napkins then sat down to watch something good on the tube. I decided to see what was on The Learning Channel. This is when the crispy goodness that covers juicy white meat became unappetizing.

The show they were airing was about people born with a rare skin disease called Harlequin Ichthyosis. The footage shown of these people being born had me in tears. The babies came out looking like burn victims. I couldn't even imagine. So you're probably thinking, "What the hell does this have to do with her not being able to eat fried chicken skin anymore?" I'll tell you. Because their bodies produce an excessive amount of keratin, they have to scrub the extra skin off several times a day. THEY SHOWED THIS.......WHILE I WAS EATING THE FRIED CHICKEN SKIN!!! I almost puked. AND I couldn't even eat another bite. Now just thinking about fried chicken skin makes me sick to my stomach.

THANK YOU TLC!!!!

I saw that too. It was so upsetting. Those poor babies.

Ev said...

That sucks, because fried chicken is fucking delicious.

I can't watch the baby's with diseases shows. It's just wrong. I mean, how is that supposed to be insightful or enjoyable?

Fuck Discovery and TLC.

Deep throat of the day: Could it be from injesting record amounts of semen? I keed, I keed.

Itchy said...

That's why I don't watch such things while eating. I enjoy my food and like it to stay in my belly.

NWJR said...

Well, I don't need to eat lunch now!

Maine said...

I had some fried chicken last night. Needless to say, the skin was the bomb.

You probably ought to avoid TLC altogether. It's the depressing diseases network.

Dont you hate it when your favorite foods get trashed? It's the main reason I never saw that McDonalds documentary about getting fat. I know all those dollar menu double cheeseburgers arent good for me, but do I need to know how they're made?

Laurie said...

Why didn't you just change the channel, Einstein???

You are so damn silly. I've seen that before also and it is quite unsettling.

JONX!

love that chicken from popeyes!

Freshairlover: It's so horrible for them to have to live that way.

Evan: Someone TOLD you about my semen ingestion?? Who was it??

Itchy: I've never really had a problem with any tv shows and eating, except for Fear Factor. I just can't do it. I can even watch people come into the ER dismembered with their intestines hanging out and not have a problem. But watching disgusting skin when I'm EATING skin, just turned me off.

NWJR: This is my new weight loss program....

Maine: I'm SOOOO glad that you were able to enjoy your chicken. Bastard.

D.T.: I saw that movie, but it didn't bother me to the point where I won't eat at Mickey D's anymore.

Laurie: Had I have KNOWN that my stomach was going to turn like that I wouldn't have even watched it. Normally that kind of stuff doesn't bother me at all while I'm eating (see Itchy's response above). HOWEVER, eating SKIN while looking at disgusting SKIN just doesn't work together. I have learned from this mistake. THANKYOUVERYMUCH!!

Soviet: Popeyes does have good chicken, but I kinda like KFC better.

Re: Deep Throat
I don't know why, but I'm pissed that it's true. I've watched it happen with so many people, I'm determined not to let it happen to me. My solution so far: eat anything and everything. Build up that tolerance. I'll let you know how it goes in a few years.

Other than that: at least during mealtime, avoid any show on TLC, DIscovery, and the surgery channel. It's just good policy. And remember, when you find yourself disgusted by fried chicken, you've got to get right back on that horse.
(Nice mixed metaphor, eh?)

i don't get grossed out when it comes to dead things or even gross medical stuff but i actually dry heaved when i read this. thanks.

Alicat said...

That just sucks. I know your fav thing is fried chicken skin and man, why not? When I was a kid my dad would bring home KFC and he'd yell at me when he looked in the container and all the skin was gone but none of the chicken. I was a brat thought I wouldn't eat chicken with bones.

Jolie said...

first...chicken skin, ewwwwwww (my son always eats mine cause I hate it)

second...maybe I should have my son watch that program the next time he asks for fried chicken *heh*

third...stomach is getting weaker with age cause you are always eating chicken skin and bacon and sausage and shit...cut that out!! ;p

Ron said...

Mike and I always have to laugh when TLC announces their primetime lineup. "Tonight on TLC - The Man Who's Arms Exploded followed by My Unborn Fetus ate My Uterus - Gather the family 'round for a lovely evening of entertainment"

BTW - I watched the one about the man whos arms exploded and it was really sick...and the second one was something out of my demented brain.

Bill said...

I want a chicken breast. With rice. Or maybe I don't want chicken or rice.

The Lily said...

I think age definitely has something to do with it, because I foolishly did a google image search and now I don't feel so good.

On a similar not, has anyone seen the show on the baby girl without a face?

The Lily said...

It was Treacher Collins Syndrome, I fink.

Dark Damian said...

I will NOT let you ruin my love for chicken skin. Of course, I could watch that show and dip the skins in ranch dressing and not miss a bite. I'm hardcore like that.

fyrchk said...

You can have all my skins now. Thankyouverfrigginmuch.

I have learned to stay away from educational shows when I'm trying to eat. Likewise, the History channel. I tried to eat dinner while watching a special on the barbaric medical conditions of the civil war (including a lot of talk of amputation) and decided to switch to something innocuous, like J-horror.

Ashburnite said...

wow that sucks...that's why I only watch "dumbed down" tv instead of trying to learn something. You don't have to worry about seeing that on American Idol or America's Next Top Model.

Mojotek said...

Wow... I just read that they never live very long at all. They even said that with new medical technology, maybe they could live a decade. Man, there's absolutely nothing funny I can say to that.

schmims said...

This is why I don't have cable.

This is why I don't have cable.

Kira said...

Ok, and now you know why I don't eat chicken skin. Seriously. Something similar happened to me when I was a teen. I vomited up my precious fried chicken skin (which I used to love so much), became a vegetarian for two years, then got over the vegetarian status but have NEVER, and I mean NEVER been able to eat chicken skin again. Sigh. I'm just a pussy like that.

ewww

My kids like watching "The Wild Boys" (they puke constantly) and it never fails that I'm eating something at that time pffft!

nicole said...

That's the CARDINAL rule of being a D-HC watcher: NEVER VIEW WHILE EATING.

Unless you're sure your stomach is strong enough to withstand the "I was born with a partially developed twin sticking out of the side of my head" onslaught.

I love that channel but there are just certain things I can't do while I'm watching it! ;)

Sassy One said...

I can no longer eat cornflakes since someone told me they looked like scabs. I will now add chicken skin to the list.
