My Best Friend Was on Freaking Toddlers & Tiaras

Last night's episode of Toddlers & Tiaras was extra special because this particular episode featured "one of us." Rich Juzwiak—co-creator of Pot Psychology and owner of Winston the cat—was asked to judge the Universal Royalty Hollywood pageant, so he donned a tux and became something of a Greek chorus for the reality show's cameras. (This might have been the first time on T&T that "age appropriate" was ever mentioned, let alone considered, as a concept.) As you can see in the clip above, he took the task and his responsibilities seriously. He wasn't there to make friends, he was there to judge a pageant. And as he said in the piece he wrote describing his experience, "If you have never been stared down by eight expectant, spray-tanned children in liquid eyeliner and ornate hairpieces, you have not seen the things that I have seen."
