THAT's a misnomer if there ever was one. & don't even get me started on the crap that the "History " Channel has been airing recently.

Anyway, I know the thread says "What's up with NORTH America? " but the fact that more people tuned in for Honey Boo Boo than a speech by 'what could have been' the next VP of the USA at the GOP convention gives SOME insight into where the US's priorities are.

No, more people did not watch honey boo boo than Ryan's speech. The article you linked says that 20 million people watched Paul Ryan's completely boring speech compare to only 3 million that watched honey boo boo. That's almost 7 to 1 for pretty boy Ryan's speech. Yes that's right, Paul Ryan had nearly 7x times as many viewers as honey boo boo.

But your point about the history channel is spot on.

I've recently found out about the show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. I've watched a few clips of the show on Youtube. It's just like a car wreck: you can't pull your eyes away no matter the horror.

But then there's this, about the child's mother:

Quote:
June Shannon herself has been criticized for her daughter's diet . . . . She has also been praised by Mother Nature Network for the "keen business sense" with which she feeds her family on $80 a week by clipping copious coupons, playing Bingo, exploiting roadkill and acquiring child support checks from each of her four children’s fathers.


She's got four kids from four different men. How could four men ever get that drunk?!

Sadly, I have to do another business trip back to the states...would rather not, but duty calls.

Will report back on "WTF is going on in North America" once I get there.
