We just watched another episode of Swamp People called “Outer Limits”. In this episode, Liz and her daughter had a contest with Glenn and Justin (Liz’s husband) to see who could catch the biggest gator. Liz and Jessica caught a 10′ 8″ gator and Glenn and Justin caught a 9′ 7″ gator, making Liz and Jessica the winners.
In case you missed it, Glenn and Justin started helping Liz and Jessica because they were struggling. A couple of episodes ago they weren’t catching alligators, their engine broke, and Liz had yet another emotional breakdown. In short, their alligator season was falling apart. They had to recruit Glenn and Justin to try and help them fill their tags. With the help of the two men, Liz and Jessica got back on track somewhat and announced that “Women rule the bayou, baby,” and “Women can do anything men can do!” Liz was so proud of Jessica that she remarked, “That’s what I call a real woman!”
We are almost 100% nauseated by these two females – no wait – we are 100% nauseated by these two females. To point out the obvious: if women ruled the bayou, baby, why did they have to call on two men to help them? If women can do anything men can do, why were they having an emotional breakdown on every show and finding themselves helpless and crying on the show before Liz went to her husband to ask him to drop his shrimping business to help her gator hunting? It was sickening to see how happy they were with themselves, obviously not noticing the fact that without Glenn and Justin, they would probably be boo-hooing in their boat again in between cussing each other out and then hugging and making up.
Oh yeah, women rule the bayou, baby. “I’m scared, Mom.”
