    Okay I just have to talk about this, because for some reason, this is bugging me.

    So for anybody who has seen the latest episode of South Park, or hasn't, there was a character they added in the show called Honey Boo Boo. It's a little girl who loves spaghetti and butter (sketti n' butter), and mountain dew mixed with red bull.

    At the time of the episode airing, I thought it was something they just made up to fit with the episode's theme. It fit well, and after all, it's Matt Stone and Trey Parker we're talking about. Anyways....

    Out of curiosity, I decided to google that little bit from the episode. And turns out, it's a real fucking person who has their own fucking show?

    It may not be new to you guys, but I don't watch any tv, like at all. I have certain shows that I watch that I just download each week, so I never even heard of this. But my god, just... just watch some of these videos.

    I can't believe that, this kind of stuff is on TV. Hell, after this, I'm glad I don't watch TV. When the fuck did it become acceptable to put this stuff on TV? And look what happens when Dr. Drew tries the little girls "Go Go Drink". That is a drink being fed to a little 6 year old girl. Suddenly South Park is starting to seem like the only educational thing left on TV. (fyi, for those of you who don't watch/didn't watch the last episode, it had a really deep meaning).

    Lol, agreed. It's just like the South Park episode said, the bar was lowered. I really dont understand how people can watch this, or how she even became that damn famous to become with. (Along with quite a few other shows/people)

    Its a shame where crap like this trumps talented people.

    It's so bad, what the hell happened to television? What the hell happened to mothers and their daughters. Pumping that poison into your kid? Who cares if it works for her, it's not good for her.

    It's funny how South Park, the one show that when it first started, was the dumbest show on the planet that had humor and nothing meaningful about it, became the most educational show ever that says "hey, look at all this shit that's wrong with our world".

    It is, simply put, brainless entertainment.

    I hate South Park, I dont find it funny at all, but I don't think its fair to manipulate a 6 year old girl, when the whole hype stops its going to destroy her world. Mind I read that they get $20,000 for each episode. I don't agree with Toddlers in Tiaras, or whatever its called I think it basically glamorises small children, which in my opinion is softcore porn for paedophiles

    They get no where close to 20k. According to Wikipedia, they get somewhere between 2000 - 7000.

    It's Mt Dew mixed with Red Bull, which isn't exactly healthy for anybody.

    I also originally they didn't get much but they renegotiated more money for the second season.

    And for a good laugh, "25 years later"

    Giving Red Bull to a 6 year old is just plain wrong. Poor child will have a heart attack when she gets older.

    Funny enough after watching the episode I did the same thing finding out this Honey Boo Boo is a real person too. Yes since the dawn of thisnew century is it suprising what gets shoved on the tv, what is even more suprising is that we watch it.

    Good song that sums up a lot of it well

    Doesn't take long for one of those kids to get violently raped after the show.
    Then after 3 more incidents people will FINALLY realize that they've been exploiting the kids for their own benefit.

    I think it's ridiculous that they even make this.

    On a more serious note, I think the mother is trying to live out her failed aspirations through her daughter.

    Children should not be given caffeine-based energy drinks - it's common knowledge. Every single energy drink can states it quite clearly - they're all diet supplements, ill-advised for children and pregnant women.

    For those who don't know, caffeine is a psychoactive drug from the Xanthine family. Now, I'm not saying that this is an equivalent of giving a child amphetamines - caffeine isn't nearly as potent... but it's close enough, given the child's relatively small body mass.

    A quote from Wikipedia:
    Such drinks are designed for an adult user - children naturally have less blood and due to the way caffeine works, they're more prone to dehydration, not to mention that high sugar level in blood isn't necessarily what you'd want your child to suffer from.

    Dafuq am I seeing here?!

    Has humanity seriously fallen that far? Does anyone remember a time like the Space Race where the whole planet was united in one worthwhile cause instead of drooling in front of the latest banal tv shows? It's when I see things like this I get to thinking that the supposed 2012 apocalypse had better be true, 'cause I don't know how much more I can take.

    On the subject of banal, mind-rotting television, I sent an email to the Jeremy Kyle show a few days ago, suggesting that they change their theme music to Michael Jackson's 'Billy Jean', since all they ever seem to do is paternity tests for slappers. He says he'll think about it. So if you're sat rotting your brain and suddenly a half-decent tune breaks the monotony for a few brief seconds, you're welcome.

    I think of it as a politically correct minstrel show, with a little white girl acting outrageous and speaking ghetto talk replacing white men acting outrageous and speaking slave dialect.
    A little shoe polish and she'd be good to go, and maybe people would see it for what it is.

    Just my opinion, I could be wrong. I don't watch that shit after all.
