I watched Honey Boo Boo this week. Mom is 31 and can not get up on her own because she is so obese. She has a house full of children starting at age 15 never married. Daughter 17 is also pregnant. The 6 year old is also overweight. They had to buy a new pageant dress because she gained too much weight. Poor education, poor diet, lack of family values is this what we need to watch?

omg did you see the trip to the water park? and whats with forklift foot? i don't know if they actually put that on tv or not. i was scanning the stations the other night and happened to catch a minute. had to keep scanning tho! it's awful!!
the way she lets these girls eat is not healthy at all. and i really don't think shes that uneducated. she manages to but a thousand dollars worth of groceries for 20 bucks! shes just not buying the right kinds of foods. i'm thinking they should forget the pagenats and use that money to go to healthier foods and maybe putting those teenagers on birth control.

I think the whole "Honey Boo-Boo" thing is not only atrocious but indicative of what this country is coming to---total ignorance, complete lack of education, morals and class. The girl has never been taught manners and it shows. I kind of feel sorry for the girl as she has no guidance. This is also proof positive that TV is a vast wasteland that turns the brains to mush.....

but its so cute when these teenage girls get knocked up......insert sarcasim here........
seriously, i think most people can watch tv no matter what the show is and still take it for what it is. but the people with no common sense should be in a class learning something instead of watching tv and thinking it's real.
i just loved how proud june was when her little daughter got pregnant and was taking after mom. shouldn't she have been teaching her from her own mistakes?
