Suckers wanted

Well, somebody is reading the mommy blogs:

I'm in the casting division with ABC Television and we're looking for great families and moms who love to stand out from the crowd, families who aren't afraid to be unique. We think that amazing mothers who are part of your groups would be amazing to feature on our program.

We're currently casting for ABC's hit family show, "Wife Swap!" Please don't be confused by the title — "Wife Swap" is a family show on ABC primetime. The premise is simple: two moms from two very different families get the opportunity to swap lives (but not bedrooms — everyone has their own!) for a week to experience what it's like to live a different lifestyle — and to see what they can teach each other about their own! In this case we're looking to feature interesting families with unique interests and hobbies — and all the fun that goes along with it. I would greatly appreciate you forwarding my information on to any of your family members, friends, and associates who might be interested in sharing their lives with us for a week!

And so forth.

Costa appears to be nauseated by the idea:

An online farm system for reality television. It almost makes me wish blogs had never been invented.

Remind me to pick up an extra bottle of Pepto.
