Thoughts On Ticked Off Vic: A Message to the Government

If nothing else, Covid-19 and the damage it has wreaked on us has revealed our flaws.

That includes our government’s lackluster response to the virus. Enter Vic DiBitetto, a comic who is not afraid to say what we are all thinking.

Warning: the video contains language that may be offensive to some viewers.

From his mouth to the ears of those in the halls of power.

Throwback Thursday: Here Comes Honey Boo Boo (2012-2014)

If I am to be truly honest with my readers, I have to admit that I have a love/hate relationship with reality television. As I see it, there is a spectrum with this genre. At the very top are programs that I will watch and not feel like I am brain dead. At the bottom are programs that I refuse to watch, because I feel like I am killing brain cells and precious television time.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo aired on TLC from 2012-2014. An off-shoot of Toddlers & Tiaras, the show followed the life and adventures of former child beauty contestant Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson and her family.

Through its short run, the reviews for this show were far from positive. I only watched short clips, but I cannot help but agree with the critics. Falling somewhere between trashy and exploitative, I know enough to know that I loath this program. If I have a choice between watching this show and not watching TV at all, I would rather not watch TV.

I do not recommend it.
