Spanish Soap Operas

Dear Spanish Soap Operas,

Thank you for showing us the limits of human drama. You are to story and plot what the speed of light is to physics -- you can not be surpassed or exceeded. If I want to write a story that is crazier than a Spanish Soap and I succeed, the universe would explode or something. (I don't understand science.)

Father's cheating on Mothers with children's spouses' pets? Only you can do that.

Children in wheelchairs regularly falling down wells? Not out of the question.

Elderly serial killers with never-ending sexual appetites? Go for it, Spanish Soap.

Thank you for never letting believability get in the way of a story,

James.

PS - Because I speak Spanish ([upsidedownexclamationpoint]DE VERDAD!) I decided to dub some Spanish Soaps to give those of you who don't understand the language some perspective on what I'm writing about:

  1. "If you don't blink your eyes will dry up and evaporate." Hilarious. Aye dios mio. Spanish soap operas sound awesome. How does a child in a wheelchair even find a well let alone get hoisted up and into one? Good stuff.

  4. jajajaja son las mejores, siempre son extremadamente retorcidas. Todos tienen relaciones con todos, siempre hay violencia, hijos ocultos drama engaño, hasta una vez vi una en donde le ponian una bomba en la panza a una embarazada.

  6. Okay the weird family relations and the horney old gezzer killers and the cripples down the well and alien abduction and time travel and telepathy I get, but the no blinking? That just broke the goofy meter!

  8. I did not blink while reading this post. There was a craze in the Middle East for a while. They dubbed the telenovelas into Arabic, and they were even weirder and more hilarious that way. Please do more! Please! Please!
