Simmering Hope

Hope is the expectation that something outside of ourselves, something or someone external, is going to come to our rescue and we will live happily ever after. – Dr. Robert Anthony

Honey Boo Boo makes the Barbara Waltes list of most fascinating people of 2012

If you need any more proof that the end of the world must be coming, look not further than Barbara Walters’ “Most Fascinating People of 2012″.
According to Barbara ” ‘Honey Boo Boo is not an obnoxious little girl. She’s sweet and loving with her mother and loving with her sisters :Jessica, Lauryn and Anna. And now Anna has a new baby, and the baby has three thumbs (Seriously… three thumbs? I rest my case.) — but so what? It’ll make you smile”

Uh, No… it definitely won’t make me smile. To be honest I am not watching the show, and from what I have been told by some people, I have zero curiosity on watching it. My understanding is that it’s the life of some trailer trash. OK, I got that. However, since when ‘Guess the fart’ is the game I would like my family to play? What is the value of watching this show?
The scary part is that people like Tina Fey endorses the show. WTF?!! Laughing material for future sketches? The family is laughing all the way to the bank, that’s for sure. And maybe Tina can play that intelligent, educational game with her kids. Yeah, that will do it.

Personally I am on Adam Levine’s side.
Recently he gave an interview to GQ and was saying “Seriously, Honey Boo Boo is the decay of Western civilization. Just because so many people watch the show doesn’t mean it’s good.It’s complete f-cking ignorance and the most despicable way to treat your kids. F-ck those people. You can put that in the magazine: F-ck those idiots. They’re just the worst. Sorry, I’m so sensitive to that — like, I don’t know, man, it’s upsetting. Just to clarify, I said, ‘F-ck those people!'”

Hillary Rodham Clinton makes the list for a second time;I can only imagine how thrilled she must be to share the space with Honey Boo Boo and her family. Classy.
Another name I have noticed on the list: the author of 50 Shades of Grey.

I would conclude that the list is not necessary something about what is good, as it is about what people are fascinated with. Stay-at-home mom porn and trailer trash life seem to be what people are interested in, which speaks volume about how stupid the society became.
We deserve to became extinct.
