On a non-related post, I feel it’s my duty as an American to comment about “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” TLC’s latest reality show. I’m not sure what the intent of this programming is, but it is gold. While the
world America loves reality television, my sister and I watched the premier tonight in its entirety with our mouths agape; utterly speechless. This show is America’s way of showing the world those cousins/family members that you avoid and don’t speak to. Is this how the world perceives us? Possibly. Being one of the most powerful countries in the world, is this what we have to show off for it? Between this and the bigotry of Chick-fil-a, we’re doing a real swell job promoting our nation’s proud citizens. Then again, we thought Snookie was bad. How did she end up as the gold medalist in this story?
At the core of it all, we are allowed to sit around our TVs in wonder, possibly disgust or sheer confusion, but these people are probably getting paid, receiving free household products, and from what I see, are quite apologetically themselves, something many of us lack. Maybe we should stop judging and appreciate them for who they are. Maybe? Possibly.
Wait. Did I just end this with a moral to this?
