<quoted text>Don't know about jelly smearing, but I DO know about an incident involving idiot parents whose kids were tossing marshmallows to a bear while dad filmed it. When they ran out, bear started towards them. They got in car and bear was injured during their escape.(this is the Reader's Digest condensed version)
Friends reported it to rangers and the parents were fined and kicked out of park.
Bear was badly injured and had to be put down.
That's sad and terrible. I feel bad for the kids (because their parents are morons) and the bear (because the kids' parents are morons).

I've never thougth to check there. We were told this by a park ranger in Yellowstone when I was a kid - so maybe early '80s.

But I know that people do othe equally stupid things in national parks, like the lady using an electric skillet to cook up her steak dinner in the bathroom. Thanks for now making that facility the most sought-out place in the park by the bears, idiot.

What's that juice that kid drinks? I'd like to see that kid give that juice to some wildlife and then face 'em.

Go-go juice. Mountain Dew and Red Bull. Enjoy that hole in your stomach lining, darlin'.

Why do I even know this? I watched the show for 5 minutes ONCE.

Their "Juice" is actually 5-hour energy and monster drinks. The mombies just call it some "Juice" name to get the kids to drink it.

I never watched it yet I know she has special juice. I saw her on the Cooper Anderson show. Of course, I've also seen the bazillion commercials for the show as well.

I saw the moms and their daughters on Anderson Cooper. It was enough.

Of course, I think it's borderline child abuse -- and absolutely bad parenting -- to give high-caffeine drinks to young kids.

I must live in a cave. I've never seen a single commercial for Honey Boo Boo. Never even heard of it. I watch College Gameday on Saturdays and the first time I ever saw a reference to it was someone in the crowd had a sign that was insulting to someone by referenceing honey boo boo. No idea what the show is about(though I think someone told me once), no idea when its on or what channel.

I envy your ignorance. I wish I could un-see and un-know all that I do about Honey Boo Boo.

TLC. Remember when that stood for "The Learning Channel"?

I don't watch a lot of commercials, nor do I channel flip very often. I think my internet habits clue me in to a lot of these weird pop culture things.

Yeah. I didn't even like that my SIL was drinking Monsters and macchiatos in late high school. But then, I think had I been in to caffeine then, my grades would have been much better.

I remember when TLC was focused on doctors on Sundays, in that, the shows were highly technical and totally aimed at physicians and other medical professionals, talking about breakthroughs and new developments in medicine. I saw a vasectomy on that channel one Sunday. And another night, I saw them perform a mastectomy, then use the woman's own belly fat to make her a new breast out of her own skin and tissue. Fascinating stuff.

So you didn't do any No-Doz in high school?

We used to pop ephedrine like it was going out of style, in high school. It was just a tool to keep the party going on and on ... and on.

I didn't! I didn't really discover the magic of caffeine until I was in college. Seems so bizarre now. I mean, I drank pop on occasion, but apparently not enough to make me notice any difference. And certainly not during school day mornings, when it would have been most helpful.
