It has come to the attention of the New York office that the show has not yet come to its’ full potential. We have decided to provide you with an additional example of the type of wife that will make the show a success. When selecting a wife you must think. If Americans were a recipe what would they be? They would be good old-fashion, Mid-Western meat and potatoes, Beef and potatoes that is. Nothing signifies Americans like a nice “White” mid-western mom preparing a hearty dinner of American Beef and potatoes for her 2.5 children and hardworking husband. Maybe she’ll even save some for the beautiful golden retriever that they bought for the kids just two Christmas’ ago. After all Red meat represents “Attractiveness”, and aren’t Americans attractive? We know that you are educated and talented individuals, who can make the show a success. We are confident that with this further example we can begin to move in the right direction.
