Derick Dillard: I'm So High ... On Love For My Wife!

by at .

It's been a difficult year for Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard.

There were several big scandals, such as Derick getting fired by TLC after launching a transphobic tirade against fellow network star Jazz Jennings, but there were also a number of less-noteworthy mini-scandals.

For example, just yesterday, Jill made her sons walk for over an hour to get Chick-Fil-A.

The reason for the bizarrely-long trek for waffle fries is that the Dillards are currently away from their home turf, and were thus forced to put more effort than usual into attainment of sufficiently godly chicken sandwiches.

You see, Jill, Derick and their two boys are in Colorado Springs at the moment, where Derick is continuing efforts to cash in as a preacher/formerly famous guy.

He's involved in some sort of Christian retreat in the area - though we can't help but wonder what he's retreating from, as Derick is currently going on six months of unemployment.

But it's not all praising the Lord and begging for money from strangers at the retreat in the mountainous part of the country.

No, as you can see in the photo above, Jill and Derick also took some time out for themselves.

“Gettin’ high on love at the summit of Pikes Peak,” Derick captioned the above photo.

“Officially our highest kiss at 14,115 ft," he added.

Yes, that's what passes for comedy in the Duggar's world.

Believe it or not, Derick actually considers himself the family's resident wit.

But what's more interesting than the attempt at humor is the fact that Derick is doing that obnoxious social media thing where your most troubled friend goes the extra mile to convince the world that he's totally overwhelmed with happiness.

It never really works, of course, but millions still try it every day.

These days, the Dillards are so hard up for cash that Jill has been stealing recipes and passing them off as her own on her personal website.

Their notoriety is dwindling rapidly, and since it's been years since either of them has worked a real job, the Dillards may soon be in real trouble.

Clearly, times like this call for corny mountain puns.
