A while back I had a bad case of bronchitis and laryngitis (actually I think I had every sort of illness ending with itis!)
Spending the majority of the day in bed (with a cracked voice and an array of medication – the only advantage of being sick!) it can get pretty boring – to say the least! Since I read all available material I had (including the medication pamphlets), T.V. was the last option left (I do watch certain shows, and love the music channels, but other than that, no T.V really).
Could somebody please, PLEASE tell me why the hell is Keeping up with the Kardashians entertaining? Or Here comes Honey BooBoo?? Really… Really? These shows are the epitome of people being famous, just for being famous. If you’re looking for some guilty pleasures, please contact me, and I will provide you with much better options.
Watching Kim Kardashian clean her cat’s butt, and her sister (one of them who’s name starts with a k!) yelling while the cat eats its own crap is not what I would call entertaining. Or that fat woman on Honey Booboo telling y’all how she just looooves her some bacon (while picking her nose). Don’t get me started on that woman with the helmet like hair, and cat claws communicating with the dead.
Helmet cat lady : Is there somebody in here, who’s father died? Anybody, anybody – well it might be your brother? I’m getting a strong male presence.
Some stupid idiot then yells : Oooh me, me! My grandfather died!!
Helmet cat lady : Did he die because he was old?
Idiot (now crying) : Oh yes, how did you know. You’re amazing!
The mucus stuck in my throat started to make its way up my larynx, and I could feel brain cells slowly starting to die.
And then there’s also a lady telling everybody how she didn’t know she was pregnant and then thought she was constipated because she felt pain and so she went to sit on the toilet and started pushing and her boyfriend was encouraging her so she pushed and pushed and she was actually in labour so she had the baby on the toilet because she felt the urge to push and then when she looked into the toilet there was a baby and then she freaked out because she didn’t know she was pregnant and she thought she was sick (did you go WTF?! Well so did I).
Oh and don’t get me started on Joan Rivers. Who the hell cares what Britney Speares whore.. Oops I meant wore to the grammy awards? If my face was pulled as tight as an extra small panty over an EXTRA large butt, I would shut my mouth (though I don’t know if the muscles controlling her mouth work any more).
A phrase I have come across on News24 : To each his own. So if you love mindless entertainment like I love wine, and it’s your way of relaxation, I can relate, but please don’t tell me that it’s riveting entertainment.
