Desperate Housewives for kids

I couldn’t believe it when my wife was at the store shopping for the daughter. She was looking for something specific and I was on the phone with her. She then saw something that she just couldn’t believe. I asked her what it was and she told me about the Desperate Housewives Dirty Laundry Game that was in front of her.

Looking at the online description we read:

Welcome to Wisteria Lane. A neighborhood where things begin with a secret and end with a scandal. And everyone’s trying to hide their dirty laundry. So don’t bother knocking. Just open a door, roll the die and discover the secrets of the Desperate Housewives.

Desperate Housewives Dirty Laundry Game Objective:

* Discover what your neighbor is hiding without revealing your own little secret. If you’re the only player not outed, you’ll win the game.

The age range is “13 and up”. Oh, how wonderful! Just what kids need more help on how to be more worldly served up to them through examples of adults. I can’t believe there is even a market for this game. And what parents would by this for their kids? This is a TV show that adults shouldn’t be watching.

I shouldn’t be suprised since the last time I was at the theatre to see the movie Robots there was a Desperate Housewives ad on the big screen. The ad showed one of the characters pull a thong out of her purse. There was also some other objectionable stuff to promote the show. I looked around and saw several young kids. How nice!

What’s next?

Mark,

Not too surprising considering Eva Longoria (sp?) won a teen choice award for her role on this show. In here acceptance speech I think even she was a little shocked that this many teens were watching her show.

Parents… anywhere???
