I keep telling my kids to never aspire to be people like this. Our country shouldn't reward attention whores who dumb down the collective IQ of an entire city when that sh*t is on. They say they watch because it makes them feel better about themselves. I'm sure this annoying kid and her mom care, as they are on TV and making good money.

Actually, it would appear this this particular subset of America will be having many nice things.

We really need to change the American Flag from the stars and stripes to a facepalm.

I had no idea what a 'Honey Boo-boo' was until about a week ago when a friend foisted it upon me.

I know pray for the end times.

While I have just cause to hate many reality shows, this one makes me want to hurl and take a baseball bat to the creators.

I watched some of it, once. That was more than enough. It's so bad that the one about young folks from Jersey seems good in comparison. It makes the characters on 'Lizard Lick' towing seem smart.

Her accent makes me want to hurl. Her mother reminds me of that fat broad on 'Squidbillies'.

Aside from 'Mythbusters' I don't like any of the reality shows but this one needs to have the creators shipped out for lots of shock treatments and maybe a lobotomy or two.

Well, at least now her mom won't starve to death.

Nadie_AZ: Our country shouldn't reward attention whores


If they're attention whores why are they turning down new houses and appearances on shows to stay home and be a big part of their community? I'll bet a lot of that money goes to the neighborhood when all is said and done.

You might look down your nose at them, but they're real people.

I've had a sinking feeling that, millions of years from now, when alien archaeological expeditions uncover our civilization, that this show will be all they can find.

There must be a few people on Fark who are regular viewers? You are not helping.

I, for one, am glad I can still profess total ignorance on who the hell this person is.

What the he double hockey sticks is a honey boo boo? Is it something like a honey badger?

Each day we get closer to idiocracy I gather.

Never seen the show, but is Dueling Banjos the intro song?

I admit to watching it for a minute, but in my defense I thought it was a Return of the Jedi reboot.

I don't get TLC, but I've been reading about Honey Boo Boo on various websites so...

There's a fundamental difference between them and the rest of reality TV: They seem to love each other and enjoy everybody else's company. And considering they are a hit we should take as a net positive.

The US has a long history of gawking/laughing/studying hillbillies/White Trash in TV fiction ~ The Waltons, Roseanne to Green Acres and Beverly Hillbillies. It shouldn't come as a surprise to anybody that after the urban train wrecks of "The Real Housewives of ..." that we should get one from Kentucky/Alabama or where ever.

Let's give some chimpanzees a few handguns, some fireworks and several gallons of gasoline and see what happens!

Next, on TLC, "Monkey Boom!"

The show with the Duggars is like that too. They really do love each, and the husband actually works and shiat.

The one with the dwarfs is good too.
 
2012-10-01 01:21:45 PM
Just think of all the gravy that kind of money can buy!
 
2012-10-01 01:25:55 PM
I loved her show, especially the crossover episode with Kate Gosselin.
 
2012-10-01 01:26:34 PM
I saw something the other day that made me think of this. Kinda made me P.O.'d.

Then I remembered that people have been paying to see the circus for a long time. No matter how much money that family is given... they're still that family and they have to live with that fact long after or short attention span passes them by.

And the IQ quotient drops another 2% every time someone watches shiat like this.

2012-10-01 01:33:04 PM
I've said this in every reality show thread I've posted in, and I will say it again: if you voluntarily watch more than 5 minutes of this garbage, fark you. For the good of America, do the decent thing and fellate a shotgun, you stupid, classless, feeble-minded imbecile.
 
2012-10-01 01:34:10 PM
It doesn't matter how much money you give those people - they will blow all of it and be right back where they started.

What the producers should do is set up a trust for the girl and keep her parents away from it.

Yup, I'm just wondering how long before I'll be able to add it to my list. I give it about a year.

"The Hutts" would be a perfect name for the show.
 
2012-10-01 01:38:56 PM
I still think the family should be forcibly sterilized, but good on TLC for offering them a raise and offering to get them a better house when they saw the show was getting ratings. Usually networks would refrain from volunteering more money.
 
2012-10-01 01:40:29 PM
Sweet Jebus!

Somebody please go postal and shoot every single one of these soulless abominations.

Trust me, not a jury in the world would convict you.

You'd probably get a "do it again, free" card for the next lot of rejects they put in their place.

A MESSAGE MUST BE SENT!!!!!

2012-10-01 01:42:02 PM
They've won the game of life by the looks of it. Getting paid a ton of money to do nothing but be the redneck idiots they are. It's the American dream, isn't it? Why try hard in life when people like this make it with hardly trying at all? Sickening.

Perhaps their lives will be a warning to others....but i think i'm giving people too much credit.
