Hey Gasmii. Flipit and I conspired and dug this show from Cmt. Yes, they do more than play Red Solo Cup 50 million times a day on Cmt. I know. It surprised me a little, too.
Medical residents are paid about as much as Jack in the box employees, so I subsidize my life by watching a two and three year old three days a week. Red Solo Cup is their favorite song, and they both know the words. We also have not one, but two toilets in our front yard for sale, so on the white trash scale we are somewhere between the trailer park and missing teeth. My ashtray is an old Christmas tree stand, so I may be a little lower down on the list I than I would like to admit.
My point is, I have the white trash cred to recap this show. For those that aren't familiar with Bayou Billionaires, it is AMAZING! It is about a super country family that struck it rich after discovering that they have a huge amount of natural gas on their land. It is very much a real life Beverly Hillbillies! So Gerald and Kitten once a month get a check, and they call it their mailbox money. They have 14 acres and all four of their children live on the property as well, along with their grandchildren. There are husbands, wives and dear old grand pappy who is the ladies man of the bunch. There is also one boyfriend that some people call Albert, some people call Carl and sometimes Jimmy depending on what part of the country you are in. Right now though he goes by Albert. Overall the show just follows the family as they make their dreams come true with their mailbox money.
Today Gerald and Kitten going to a local art gallery. Kitten tells us they have art, but it's been the same for 20 years and that she is tired of it. She would like some refinement in their home and that's what mailbox money is all about.
Kitten asks Gerald if he likes the oil kind of paintings or the picture kind of stuff and it is cracking me up because Gerald is clearly the type of guy who really doesn't care about either. I am sure he likes his house looking nice but, he is not the type to go art shopping. Hell I would go as far to say that he might not even notice if you changed all the art in his home. Basically Gerald's perspective on art is that he wants to be able to recognize what it is. I am right there with you Gerald. Although I am probably not the best person seeing as how I have IKEA outdoor furniture in my bedroom. Why outdoor furniture you ask? Well because I got it all from a garage sale for $10 and you can't actually find furniture cheaper than used IKEA furniture. Don't judge me, R2DCups is on a serious budget. Also it is a big step up from the milk crate I was using as a nightstand. (Yes I am very aware that my white trash factor keeps going up!)
Needless to say, Gerald hates most of the art there and I am right there with him. They come to a painting of butterflies and horses and he kind of likes it but he points out that they can just go outside and look at their horses as they have like 20 of them. Kitten just wants to broaden their horizons and get something they don't see every day. Got to love Kitten. She is always trying new things, like when she got a monkey as a pet for her granddaughter or the time she had them all go to the country club.
Kitten asks Gerald if he likes this god-awful picture that is like an abstract of the famous American Gothic painting by Grant Wood. Only this one looks like the guy who painted it was on a lot of acid and watching a few too many Tim Burton movies. Gerald is a man after my heart and responds with "why no". So simple, so much cleaner than I would have put it, but so awesome all the same.
