Edna: Margie, I am plumb fed up, and for once it doesn't have anything to do with you.
Margie: In that case, Edna, tell me all about it. I'm all ears.
Edna: Thank you, Margie. I swan, I'm so upset about this, I think I might need a cup of special tea. Maybe two.
Those dang fool networks are at it again, they're canceling my favorite shows! First ABC decided that they weren't going to order any more episodes of Pushing Daisies (and we all know what that means). Then, NBC decided to get in on the act and they canceled My Own Worst Enemy. What's going to go next? Chuck? Fringe? Heaven forbid, Supernatural??
Margie, it's getting to the point that I don't even want to watch new shows any more. What's the point? I find something I like, and then the networks cancel it. It's all about the ratings and their advertisers, TV executives sure don't care about their real customers: the viewers.
Margie: I need special tea too because I agree with you and that's scary.
I mainly watch cable now and you should too. Cancel Supernatural? Edna, I'd make their life a living Hades. I'd put a voodoo curse on those idiots.
Maybe we should just rent some of those men movies. You know the ones.
Edna: Margie, you never cease to amaze me. And I don't mean that in a good way.
I think we'd better start looking up voodoo curses, because I have a feeling things on TV are going to get worse before they get better.
Margie: I'm with you, sister. How does The Margie and Edna Network sound?
Edna: Sounds good to me!
