Remember those days you’d rush home from middle school to eat cheetos and watch crappy tv like The Grind or Jenny Jones? Sometimes I’d want to go to my BFF Jenny’s house after school but didn’t have a note to get on her bus (clearly this was before I learned to forge my parents signatures) so instead we’d go home and eat our own respective cool ranch doritos and gushers and froots-by-the-foot and just talk on the phone for an hour, flipping channels and commenting on Ricki Lake guests’ outfits (I guess that is the equivalent of instant messenger and youtube for todays ‘tweens) or the always entertaining and trashy show topics: My Sister is a Hoochie, I’m so Sexy Guys are Afraid of Me, Out-of-Control Teen Bootcamp, I’m in Love with a Stripper (no, wait, that is a T-Pain song). Ahh, the good old days of early reality TV.

And now, thanks to hulu.com, you can relive those glory days with short, heavily edited clips of Ricki Lake’s classic talk show. I’m not sure what publicity stunt has made Columbia Pictures release “minisodes” of the show–perhaps we have Ricki Lake Show DVD’s to look forward to?

I wanted to share my favorite clip with you, dear reader, but how to choose? There’s “I’m a Prostitute and Proud” with Dwight, the skinny-tie-wearing male prostie whose spastic wife pimps him out and passes it off as a middle finger to America’s shitty health care system. Or the awesome brother and sister combo featured in “My Sister has no Class” who could pass for two of the hottest hipsters working at Opening Ceremony. And of course “My Sex Life is Better now that I’m Fat,” where a formerly fat but not quite skinny guy dropped this science on the crowd: “I’d rather be in bed with a healthy, sexy woman than in the ocean with a whale.” But I really feel like blowing your minds, so enjoy this gem, “Cousin Love”

[ed note: it should be embedded here but it won’t work]

Pete, you are awesome. “Hey, its the nineties.” Isn’t cousin-dating taboo because of the dangers of inbreeding? So if you love your cousin and you can’t breed because you both have a penis, is it still a no-no?

All I know is I miss tabloid talk shows and I wish I still had my choker collection

Black hole sun
Won’t you come?
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun
Won’t you come?
Won’t you come?

or maybe…

Under the bridge downtown
Is where I drew some blood
Under the bridge downtown
I could not get enough
Under the bridge downtown
Forgot about my love
Under the bridge downtown
I gave my life away
