So a fat woman came into the store today...

This thread is dedicated to the hero of the blue collared workers, Al Bundy

al_bundy.jpg

and the show, Married With Children

mwc%20cell.jpg

For those who don't know, MwC was a show about Al Bundy who sold women's shoes. Married to the definition of a cougar, a son who can't get laid, and a hot bimbo daughter. He survives by reliving the glory days (4 touchdowns in a single football game) and participating in No Ma'am ( National Organization of Men Against Amazonian Masterhood).

I love this show because my dad and I used to watch this together when I was a kid. I think he was trying to convince me not to be a woman's shoe salesman, but I really enjoyed how Al hated his life, but still made me laugh.

So SE++, share the love with me.

Also, some videos to showcase Al's amazing-ness...

    It makes me sad that they didn't end it that way. It would have been a proper end to a show about the suffering of a lower middle-class family.

    He had several chances too. One such woman was a "shoe-groupie". It was pretty classy

    But isn't the point of the family being lower middle class is that most people can relate to them? With them winning the lottery its a bit harder for people to relate to them. Also thats the exact same thing that happened in Roseanne

    I remember when Peggy started seeing another guy behind Al's back. It wasn't straight-up cheating, just dancing and some flirting, but then it turns out he's gay when his boyfriend shows up at Al's house in a fag rage.

    Oh and does anyone remember the episode where Bud dated Tiffany Amber Thiessen but she turned out to be a bitch?

    That episode ended with Kelly tying her to the school lockers and leaving her completely naked.

    Since I never watched Roseanne I didn't know that. And I guess that it would be harder to relate to, but I'm not sure it would matter since it would be the series finale.

    I sell shoes. I refer to my job as "doing the Al Bundy gig".
    But to be honest I never really watched or enjoyed this show.

    In my opinion the only significant way this show effected my life was by ruining Sinatra's "Love and Marriage", which puzzled me every time I'd hear it played at weddings when I was a caterer.

    Also, Rosanne's show completely nosedived that same season.

    What a strange coincidence.
