The Amish are coming! The Amish are coming!

The Amish are America’s punch line. They’re a little sect that somehow still exists, despite the rest of America trying to “save” them from themselves. We joke about them, look down upon them, and at times, pity them. But then we put them on a television show with some of us regular “city kids,” and who looks foolish? Yup, we do. It’s the classic switcheroo, where you think you are going to learn about another culture, but really we are learning about ourselves.

I mean who’s crazier? People who don’t use electricity or someone who thinks cows are from Outer Space?

That said, I’m convinced that Mose is a robot.
