Jim from Saint Paul:

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.

/$40,000 would pay off all my bills but my house
//and leave me in a happy pool of sobbing tears.


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.

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

So something like 1% of America watches a show, and it's some sort of epidemic?

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.

I'm tired of hearing about this family, and I really hate John McCain for bringing them into the public spotlight.

TheFark5000: 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?

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?
