Pardon Me While I Dry Heave...
If The Young and the Restless HAD to make Ashley pregnant with Victor's child
(and I sincerely doubt that they HAD to, because the last thing most people think of when they hear about a "fortyish" woman and a one hundred-year-old man is "Baby story! That's the ticket!", especially when you consider that the centenarian in question is Victor, because ew.)
(And also, Genoa City is almost entirely populated by Victor spawn, why on earth does he need another child roaming around? I am never again mocking General Hospital for making Sonny the father of a dozen children)
(Really, is there anything in the world more discomfiting than pondering Victor having sex and fathering a child? I'm sorry for harping on that image and grossing all of you out, but I haven't fully recovered from the last time Victor got someone pregnant and I had to share my PTSD with you)
But anyway, if they HAD to, I wish that they had at least tried to make the dialogue regarding this...um...blessed event less GUT-CHURNINGLY OMG GROSS*.
Ashley: Um... you're right. I did make you a gift. Well, actually, um... we kinda made it together.
Victor: Wait a minute. Are you saying what I think you're saying?
Ashley: We're pregnant.
"We kinda made it together"?!?
Victor: She has given me the most wonderful gift of all... this is not something I'm gonna keep a secret. My beautiful Ashley is pregnant.
I'll let Victoria's hilarious expression of speechless grossed-outedness speak for me:
It's just kicking the audience when we are already down and disturbed, you know?
*Gut churningly gross is also a good way to describe Eileen Davidson's hair. How can a basic ponytail look so wrong?
