Note: The following post was inspired by one of Baila’s recent Facebook statuses.
YZG insists that he grew up watching something called “Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom” and that it was one of his favorite TV shows.
But I say that he made the whole thing up.
To back his claim, he showed me a whole slew of websites dedicated to the alleged show - including the Wikipedia page, which asserts that it ran from 1963-1988 and was then revived in 2002.
But I believe
they done her in that YZG is probably behind each of those sites.
He even tried to prove his case by downloading an episode, but – surprise, surprise! - “Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom is not available for download”.
Those of you who know us in real life will, no doubt, point out that it makes sense that only YZG remembers this show. After all, a program about animals is exactly the kind of thing which would appeal to YZG but most definitely not to me.
But I prefer my theory – namely, that the show is a figment of his imagination.
So, please tell me, did YOU ever watch “Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom”?
Before you answer this question, I should warn you that if you answer in the affirmative, I’ll know that YZG made you an offer you couldn’t refuse…
P.S. A reader suggested that I explain that this post was meant as a joke.
