My Strange AddictionIt appears the car-crash fascination of watching people eat couch cushions and lightbulbs has weighed out over the ick factor.

According to Entertainment Weekly, TLC has renewed 'My Strange Addiction' for a second season. The show "tells the compelling stories of people who are battling obsessive behaviors on the verge of taking over their lives," according to TLC. Subjects who have been profiled in the first season range from an obsessive scab-picker to a woman addicted to eating toilet paper.

The season finale of 'My Strange Addiction' airs Wednesday, Feb. 16, at 9PM ET, and will follow a woman addicted to laxatives and another addicted to "eating pottery and cigarette ashes."

now tell me folks, with the price of watching tv going up everyday, one would think they would have better choices out there. Or are we all just stupid for paying these ridiculous prices. When cable was first introduced the price was incurred so as not to have many commercials to deal with. Well that didn't last very long. With all the reruns to fill time slots now and these shows that get more and more stupid, maybe we should all turn our cable boxes/dishes, etc. in and be done with it.

The girl that eats toilet paper, has apparently now resorted to eating toilet paper that is already used. Feces eating is dangerous to the system.:)
