    Then she would probably become an e-baycoholic by purchasing so much garbage.

    Then she'd be the way she was in Iola's marriage fantasy.

    Then Naomi would still be a floosy and Vint would know what it would be like to be one of the guys who slept with Naomi.

    What if Mama and Mr. Fix-It hooked up?

    Then Maniac Mama would be the most appropriate title for her.

    Then the family could be rich, and the family would have to learn to cook, making an episode of messing it all up.

    Then Effie and the other women from the beauty spot would want to join in on the fun.

    Then she'd soon have enough money saved for a stove, a VCR, a trip to Hawaii and the Grand Canyon, her dream funeral, and have change leftover for the church collection plate.

    What if The Pet Lock actually did sweep the nation?

    Then she would start slacking off with the household chores and the cooking. Plus, the roles would be reversed where Naomi would do the criticizing on Mama's new look.

    What if Thelma won herself a Carribean Cruise?

    Then Bubba would spend the whole time looking good for the camera, Mama would take over the show criticizing Vint and Naomi, Iola would be camera-shy and just stay quiet and cover her face the whole time, and Mama would end the show by daring Oprah to try motherhood herself.

    What if Bubba decided to take up ping-pong?
