Name That Trauma :: Reader Jackie on Tumble-Dry Tots

August 14th, 2010 by aunt john · 5 Comments

Hi! Here’s my trauma:

Two mothers in orange or yellow (very ‘70s) outfits are in a laundry room or laundromat talking about how they like to wash their kids. They open two dryers and there are two kids (both girls I think) in striped knee socks inside of the dryers. One of the women reminds me of LOUISE LASSER (of MARY HARTMAN, MARY HARTMAN). Saw this on T.V. sometime between ‘85-‘89.

If someone can figure this out, they’re amazing.

    Sounds groovy, but I got distracted because some heathen allowed an evil, follow-you-everywhere crash-a-matic ad on holy ground. I’m v’klempt and vituperous. Damnit! You guys are my home base. I check in with you first, and expand from your knowledgeable links and now here you are flinging monkey poo!

    Not to be completely useless, it seems I remember that in the context of a fantasy and/or commercial in some movie. Groove Tube? Kentucky Fried? Or Amazon Women?

    TVSA, that sounds like one of those horror-blip viruses that have been going around. We will stomp it out!

    For some reason this one reminds me of a Carol Burnett skit. 
    Which is bad because yesterday I spent hours watching Carol Burnett on Youtube instead of doing my chores.

    This sounds way to awesome to go unidentified for long.
    I can’t imagine seeing that scene and not remembering it. You can’t even read about it and not wish you had seen it!

    That sounds very John Waters to me but I have no concrete evidence that its one of his.

    Im pretty sure its not AMAZON WOMEN ON THE MOON. Ive seen that a hundred times, and own a copy.I have KENTUCKY FRIED MOVIE too and dont rememeber it on there.

    GROOVE TUBE? Maybe. I only saw that once in the 80s so I dont remember once.

    Carol Burnett? “Dirt Around The Collar!”
