Guess what started Sunday night my friends. You guessed it – Shark Week! It started Sunday on the Discovery Channel. We at the Hotel Thompson look forward to this every single year. It’s so much fun to see sharks – on television of course. Now when mom/dad go to the beach, they will think twice about putting their piggies in the ocean.
And never fear, Discovery Channel has promised not to make the mistake they did back in 2013 when they ticked everyone off during Shark Week. Do you remember what they did? They showed “Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives”. Everyone watched it including us here and then learned that was two hours we couldn’t get back. The show was about the possibility that the giant megalodon shark was still alive. After the show, it was revealed that the “scientists” in the show were really actors and the events in the documentary were scripted. The Discovery Channel got so much backlash for that it wasn’t even funny. And then can you believed that even after all that bad publicity, the Discovery Channel showed the sequel in 2014, “Megalodon: The New Evidence.” Of course, by then we were all like, “Really Discovery Channel?”
We *almost* didn’t watch last year because of their stupid melodrama but for some reasons the sharks kept calling our names.
Even Houdini is getting into Shark Week this year. Mom put his costume on and he was running around the Hotel Thompson. I kept calling him Shark Bait – it was really funny to watch.
So my friends – will you be watching Shark Week?

Oh dear piggy heavens above. Yep, you read that right. A show on television called Naked and Afraid. I’ve been watching this on my television for a while now. It’s taken me a while to wrap my little piggy brain around the concept. Let me explain that to you so you get why I’m amazed.
A man and a woman sign up for this adventure. Voluntarily might I add – snorts – remember that part. They go somewhere remote in the world. It could be Panama, Fiji, a swamp, the beach, a rain forest or wilderness. They have to survive for 21 days alone. Together. Naked. No water, no food and no clothes. Did you get that? Naked. Two strangers that don’t know each other on their own.
WTP (what the pig?!) I can understand 21 days of survival in a remote place but naked? As in no clothes. Not a stitch of nothing. For all the world to see. A complete stranger. In nature. With bugs, rain, heat, no food, no water, slithery things like snakes, dirt, and yuck. Shivers to mergatroid.
This show comes on the Discovery channel. Have you seen it? If so, thoughts? If not, you gotta see this show. Oh, and let me add there is a small camera crew that follows them around. Of course they can’t help in any way unless there is an emergency but they see you in your birthday suit too.
So, are you going to sign up? Snorts.
