Parental TMI Moment of the Week

by Ken Houghton

I am perfectly willing to assume the following results from parental negligence:
My daughters have bonded on a television show. Not Sesame Street or Dora the Explorer or Wonder Pets or any of that type of show. A sitcom.

Two words: Full House.

Four more words: Mary Kate and Ashley.

Now, understand: Rosalyn watches the show for "the baby." (She has a baby obsession, having been or still being one herself.) So I haven't been able to send back Season 1 Disc 1 to Netflix yet. Which means we've seen the diaper-changing scene in the first episode almost as many times now as Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. And it holds up; brilliant piece of physical comedy.

But it meant that I was checking about the cast members. Bob Saget, star of The Aristocrats, was easily recognizable, as was Pepper Dennis's ex-husband. Somewhat less recognizable were Valeri Bure's wife and the girl who did the most impressive piece of physical comedy in the first episode.

But Dave Coulier was unknown to me.

And what do we find in his bio?
First lover of Alanis Morissette - they met at a celebrity hockey game.

Let's ignore that she's just shy of 15 years his junior.
He has said he is the person Alanis Morissette is singing about in her song "You Ought to Know".

It becomes no longer possible to sit in the same room with the children when the show is on, as one does not want to try to explain the lyrics of "You Oughta Know" to a five-year-old.
Dave Coulier was the guy who got head in a theater?! Damn, I would have never guessed it was him (not that I ever over-analyzed Alanis lyrics in the first place).
Hm. I don't know which is more sad, that Mr. Coulier's eyebrow raising relationship is the most exciting thing on his bio or that it's listed on his bio.

But, it was a cute show! There are worse shows your daughters could be bonded to.
