rdu_voyager: tenpoundsofcheese: Vegan Meat Popsicle: tenpoundsofcheese: You refer to people that you don't even know as "white trash" and hillbilly

Great. Not only are you a moron, you're an illiterate moron.

You are the person who used the racially charged "white trash" label.
I am just quoting you.

Stop the racist attacks.

I have a policy of not putting anyone on ignore (you're a nice dark red instead), but you sure as hell are making me reconsider that.


Please, Fark loves that guy. Nothing makes people feel better than having someone to mock and feel superior to, amazingly tying this right into this thread since that is the exact same reason this show exists.

You aren't going to put him on ignore, just like people aren't going to stop responding to him and asking him serious questions in response to his derp. Even though every single time he ignores the well reasoned and rational responses to his derp and goes about his business of posting more derp.

And every time there's someone who manages to act outraged about it and threatens to put him on ignore, while 5 other people try to have a rational discussion with him or post links debunking his derp as if he gives a shiat. It's the circle jerk of life.

Not a chance in hell. That money will be pissed away in a huge golden stream Corral never to be seen again.

Them. And by them I mean the four different babydaddies contributing to the household. Five if Baby Threethumbs's daddy is old enough to drop fries. And minus any who are unable to contribute due to incarceration.

Georgian here, i hate what they've done to this little girl (i genuinely feel bad for her) - how she's become a representative of all the old stereotypes and bias against my home state (and the south in general). There are tons of people out there like her..the difference is not all of them have parents willing to whore out their daughter on camera for fame and fortune.

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

Decided to check out your profile to see what else The Onion was right about. Didn't know Bush was the President in September of 2011, fascinating

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


If it wasn't for the Soup, Conan & Fark I would have never believed it was a real show. I've seen clips but never an actual episode on the network it airs.

They don't need to buy gravy - Honey's mama can produce it for free by hooking her up to a milking machine.

While I don't actually watch Honey Boo Boo, I do enjoy imagining the envy and fury at the House of Eden Woods.

WTF is this about? (goes through thread)

rudemix: Ruthless Reviews Destroys Honey Boo Boo Show
This was posted by TappingTheVein in the last Honey Boo Boo thread. It should be posted in every thread. Brutally delicious review.


Ah, one of these things.

I'm curious; how accurate are the ratings systems? I haven't run across anyone who watches these trashy reality shows since Growing Up Gotti, and even that was only watched sporadically. Could it be the logic in the ratings system has the simplest of flaws?

i.e. 4000 viewers of 10000 sample = 60% of available audience

The fallout from such a finding would be enormous; millions of dollars thrown away on pure turds, quality (or at least more palatable) programming cancelled due to poor ratings.

I don't know what competition is like shows such as Jersey Shore, Toddlers or Housewives (flavor A, B or C). Maybe it's no better than "Taking a Dump with Barney Rubble", but even that should earn at least 50% compared with the programs I've listed.

NOTE: Relative to serial programs such as Firefly, Seinfeld or Cougar Town, these reality shows are cheap to produce from both initial and on-going cost perspectives. Throw enough crap out there and the ROI of one thing can make up for losses by the others.

MilesTeg: So I was channel surfing the other day and saw a marathon of this in the guide. Having heard about it on Fark I figured I would at least see what it was.

I selected the channel and within 2 minutes I observed some of the most stomach turning TV I have ever seen. They took turns sitting blindfolded while the others blew their foul breath into the blindfolded one's face and they had to guess out of which decayed mouth the breath spewed from. I about hurled. In the same 3 minute skit, one of the fat chicks squirted piss (I hope) through her pants onto the couch.

I turned off the TV, paused for a minute to contemplate what I had seen, then went for a jog.

/CSB


Wait. Really? Holy shiat, I had no idea it was that awful.

garandman1a: CynicalLA: There must be a few people on Fark who are regular viewers? You are not helping.

OK, the wife is a regular viewer. And I was forced to watch 90 minutes of it in exchange for sex (after 20 years of marriage a guy will do most anything. Who are you to judge me!!).

Yes, the show was as horrible. Not as bad as some other things I've been forced to watch. The Real Housewives of ... has GOT to be the worst show ever foisted upon us, as at least the hillbilly crowd now they are stupid or at last don't preen as if they are more intelligent than normal. The Real Housewives of ... are far stupider because while nominally being painfully stupid, THEY DON'T EVEN REALIZE IT! Worse, they think they are intelligent.

I can tolerate stupid, in small doses, if it doesn't try and come off as something it's not. True stupidity, in not realizing how bone-achingly stupid you are while carrying on an air of moral and intellectual superiority is by far the worst crime of humanity, as it has caused so much pain in the world.

And before I forget, the wife also loves the 3 Stooges, South Park, and in spite of being in her mid-50's gets hit on by guys 35 years younger quite often. And no, you can't see pictures.


No. Not even a full bottle of Viagra would arouse me enough to have sex if I had just watched that crap.

Oh, I am sure that is the first thing they did....get financial advice. They seem to be all about wise and measured life choices.


From a link provided above:

Another interesting tidbit from the story is that the family isn't spending the money they make from the show, instead putting it into four separate trusts for June Shannon's four kids.

2012-10-01 05:40:41 PM  

Nadie_AZ: They say they watch because it makes them feel better about themselves.

 

There was a movie made in the late 60's entitled "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?". It was a film about the dance marathon contests during the Depression. People would pay money to come and see a bunch of people dance for hours and hours, trying to get the First-Place prize. Watching this tableau of desperate humanity shedding its dignity and self-worth seemed to make the paying customers feel better about their own wretched lives..... but only for a little while.

I wouldn't be surprised if every television producer out there has watched "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" just to get some inspiration for their reality TV ideas.

Strolpol: 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.


The reality is that they will think that disney was our pantheon. It exists on three different land masses, has huge replicated structures and giant statues.

It really does make you think what we totally misunderstand about ancient cultures.

Meh, the kid is fine. Kids are supposed to like and do stupid shiat, that's how they grow up eventually.

It's everyone else involved in the show, from the mother to the producers to the audience, that needs to die for the good of the gene pool.

Same boat...but now I know she's just some chubby kid birthed by some whale-like creature (her own fate, fyi). The whole family is fat (looks like genetics to me). I saw this on THE NEWS...THE F*CKING NEWS FER CHRISSAKE.

I love this thread. I love how people come in here and bemoan the whole "reward the fail" mentality.

...while at the same time blissfully ignoring that this is exactly the product of the welfare state. Pay people to be fat, retarded cows who shoot out career felons, and really only serve as a democrap vote-breeding project.

Paying stupid people to be stupid is bad when it is the short-term of a few seasons. But it's totally okay when it is reinforced multi-generationally, right?

Keep rewarding the fail, America

I don't think so. She's no Mensa recruit, but she seems to have a brain in her head. Were she being raised in a family that valued education above teen pregnancy and Cheetos, she might do okay for herself.

Now the rest of the bunch...
