I can proudly say I've never seen this show.

I do, however, watch the shiat out of Amish Mafia, and I don't even care. Yes, I know, I'm part of the problem.

Are these shows making the populace dumber or are they merely a reflection of how dumb we have become?

People enjoy watching trainwrecks.  Especially if it's worse than anything they've ever been involved with.

They're smarter than you think. June is putting the money for the show into trust funds for the kids.

3.1 million people have self-esteems so low that they need this to feel better about themselves.

As the 21st century began, human evolution was at a turning point. Natural selection, the process by which the strongest, the smartest, the fastest, reproduced in greater numbers than the rest, a process which had once favored the noblest traits of man, now began to favor different traits. Most science fiction of the day predicted a future that was more civilized and more intelligent. But as time went on, things seemed to be heading in the opposite direction. A dumbing down. How did this happen? Evolution does not necessarily reward intelligence. With no natural predators to thin the herd, it began to simply reward those who reproduced the most, and left the intelligent to become an endangered species.

So first Mama June was afraid of mayonnaise, and now she likes it?

Makes sense. Magnets repel and attract.
 
2013-01-09 01:13:22 PM  
I've enjoyed the time I spent watching the Honey Boo Boo show.
Are they making some choices I wouldn't make and enjoying things I wouldn't enjoy?
Sure.
Does it matter?
No.

It's a negative feedback loop. Dumb people bump up the ratings. The high ratings draw in other people who watch out of curiousity, and have their IQs drop from watching. Those people then go on to create even higher ratings for the next monstrosity to come along.

The cycle is self perpetuating, and not even fire can kill it.

Is this the thread where I should break down and admit that I less talented than these people?

Stop hatin'? You'd like to see me do better? I need to leave my mom's basement? They're making millions and I'm not, so I need to stop complaining? They're just having fun and I need to get over it?

Did I miss anything?

I hate everyone who watches this show because these HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE people make more money in a year then I make in almost 3. They wouldn't make that if people stopped watching.

Shiat like this almost makes me want to join the other side. And by "other side" I mean, "become a politician so I can wring blood from the idiots of this country for my personal glee, since they are so desperately asking for it".
 
2013-01-09 01:26:32 PM  
I don't understand how you can get that fat and be terrified of mayonnaise. I'm only mildly fat myself, and I'd put that shiat on everything if I could get away with it!

It's pretty farking hilarious when you watch it as an homage to Spinal Tap and Christopher Guest's movies.

So? They're just going to use the money to continue in their slobby lifestyle. It's not like any of them are going to think to use it for school or for anything that would contribute to society in any way. It's not going to save them from their horrendous upbringing.

That's reasonable to hate everyone who watches a tv show.

I hope you also hate everyone who watches sports, since the average NBA salary is $5.15 million, the average MLB salary is $3.31 million, and the average NFL salary is $1.9 million, all of which far exceed what the Boo Boo clan will make from the show.

Hopefully you hate everyone who goes to or watches movies, since A-list actors can make tens of millions per movie.

Of course, Paul McCartney's net worth was estimated at $800 million last year, so fark anyone who listens to The Beatles or music in general. Right?

Yeah, Honey Boo Boo's family makes a lot of money. They make more this year than most people will make in several years. But what they make is a drop in the bucket compared to the outrageous money other people in entertainment earn. They will go away in a year or two, while the salaries of professional athletes, already astronomically higher than anything Boo Boo will earn, will continue to rise.

To be fair: most of the transmissions they've received on the Pyramids involves their construction by aliens at the hands of ice-truck driving Hitlers, as foretold in the prophecies.

They have talents. true, society has arbitrarily decided to reward athletic prowess and the ability to convey a story in a believable manner, but both attributes could be said to be because of our evolution. Fast, strong, and able to sway emotion would have advantages without society's trappings.

But being stupid, overweight, plain clowns? You may grab the king's attention for a short while, but one wrong move and it's off with that mumps-child head of yours.

You do realize that those who produced (and starred in) the notorious freakshows of the previous centuries were also millionaires too right?

You know what, let's just come up with stupid reality show ideas that TLC will probably use.
For example: Diversity Manor.
A house is filled with black supremacists, racists, city slickers, rednecks, gays, and members of the WBC.
It's the human equivalent of putting a bunch of bugs in a jar and shaking it.

I'll give you that you used hyperbole, although it made you sound like a whiny biatch by saying you hate everyone.

Maybe you should research sarcasm, though. Usually it involved saying the opposite of what you mean, but in a tone that makes it obvious you don't mean it. This would be a better example of sarcasm:

I hate everyone who watches this show because these HORRIBLY TALENTED people make more money in a year then I make in almost 3 and they deserve EVERY PENNY.

I look forward to the day that Honey Boo Boo becomes popular enough to invite guest stars in.

Just think, Snookie and her crotchfruit visiting Honey Boo Boo to share in a discussion of quantum theory. Or maybe Justin Bieber coming down to serenade one of the kids while debating who the greatest 19th century American author is.

OK TLC. I've done the hard work for you. Now send me money or hire me as a programming exec.
