a dollar makes me holler

So somehow I ended up watching an episode of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo." And another. Before I knew it, my afternoon was gone and so were half of my brain cells.

I decided that it's this generation's Southern, reality version of "Roseanne." The family is crude, loud and eats way to much canned food but they love eachother and have a lot of fun. The show is centered around a lot of things I hate (child beauty pageants, extreme couponing, not eating vegetables) but deals with a lot of societal issues (teenage pregnancy, barnyard animals as pets, obesity, forklift foot) and is justfunny. Any criticism about their lifestyle is pretty hard to dispute (getting blind folded and having your family breathe their smelly breath into your face while you guess who it is is a questionable hobby, lets be real) but I don't think I've seen a funnier or sweeter kid on tv in a long time. Tried to hate it. Couldn't.

Honey Boo Boo had a (male) pet pig named Glitzy...

After watching people eat spaghetti with literally a tub of fake butter and a bottle of ketchup on top of it, I just kind of feel like working out a little. Thanks, pinterest!
