Following Toddlers & Tiaras for the past few seasons, we know that pageant moms give their kids Pixy Stix and even Red Bull to pump up their energy, but none of the little beauty queens ever seemed to really have an understanding about their forced relationship with mood altering substances—until last night's episode. Little Alana (whose mother, incidentally, is an "extreme couponer", providing a nice little cross-promotion for TLC) drinks a "special juice" that's full of caffeine and sugar to give her that competitive edge. Alana proclaims confidently, "My special juice is gonna help me win," with a joie de vivre known only to people who truly know how to party.
Off topic, but just where do these extreme couponers get all their coupons? I started paying attention to the circulars that come in the mail and there are NO FREAKIN' COUPONS in then. The sale inserts in the papers just tell you what is on sale, but also no coupons. I went on the websites for some local grocery stores and they have coupons you can download but they're all for, like, hamburger helper and other assorted crap that I don't buy. How in the hell does this work? Do I live in a coupon-free zone or something?
