I was watching TV today while folding the laundry. That’s when I saw a promo for a new show.
Genius, I thought.
I didn’t even have to watch the clip to know what it was all about.
Every week, a random person would be “butched,” or given a butch makeover. This would involve cargo shorts, a T-shirt or polo shirt, new sneakers, maybe a baseball cap or even a tattoo.
Because everyone knows butches have more fun.
There would be instructions on how to give the butch nod, what beverage to order with lunch (beer), what beverage to order with dinner (beer), how to walk with a swagger, tie a Windsor knot, sing along to Melissa Etheridge songs in the car, open a jar of pickles without showing effort and respond to “can I help you, sir?”
And then I realized the show was actually called Botched. And it was about fixing plastic surgery mishaps.

But if there was a show called Butched, what would it be about?
