I'm currently watching MTV's newest backdoor pilot, "True Life Presents: The Theriot Family: The Riot on the Bayou: My Mother Hates My Boyfriend." That's really the title. It's that long.* The Theriots consist of Mama Tiff, the long-suffering matriarch, Papa Billy Bob Thornton, and their six or eight or twelve teenage children and their friends. They take liberal advantage of a Louisiana law that they claim allows minors to drink as long as it's OK with their parents. I am guessing that some TiBbers and TiBettes might have snuck a nip or two before they reached the age at which doing so was strictly legal. This adds to the excitement of the actual drinking and being inebriated with an undercurrent of defiance and anti-authoritarianism. FOCUS: Share your experiences with underage drinking. Was it awesome? Did you get caught? Did you have to work up elaborate, Mission: Impossible-style plans to obtain the hooch? RULE: If you don't have a drinking age in your country, then just lurk. Spoiler * That's what she said.
