Things That Leave Me Scratchin’ My Head {Coffee Talk}

Coffee Talk1. Honey Boo Boo. What in the world is this craziness on TLC? Have you seen that show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”? I didn’t realize what it was when I first turned it on, I honestly thought it was a new cartoon on one of the kiddie channels. Why in the world would parents subject their kids to that kind of madness? You know, everyone in the world is going to be dogging those kids out (and their parents). How is this helpful to the kids? I know the parents are probably making money off this but pimping out the babies and setting them up for ridicule? Yeah, not cool.

2. I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry at this story about eleven people vying for $50,000 in a texting contest. TEXTING, y’all! $50,000. For. Texting. Seriously, I’m in the wrong business.

3. Have you heard about the death of Max Shacknai? He’s the 6~year~old son of Medicis Pharmaceuticals founder and CEO Jonah Shacknai. Anyway, a few months ago, he fell over the balcony at his father’s mansion and died a few days later. At the time of his injury, Max was in the care of his father’s girlfriend and her younger sister. He died four days after the accident, his death was ruled a suicide. Two days later, the girlfriend was found hanging naked from an outdoor balcony with her hands and feet bound. Her death was ruled a suicide. blank stare How many things can you find wrong with that story? Now that Max’s death has been ruled a possible homicide, maybe the “suicide” will be investigated as well.

4. Have you seen that commercial for Walmart where the ladies are having a clothes party and at the end they find out the clothes are from Walmart? I hate that commercial. It just seems so, I dunno, fake. “I’ve never bought children’s clothes from Walmart before.” Sorry, lady, you just don’t look like you only shop on 5th Avenue. Oh, and while I’m discussing commercials that I hate, that stupid Drano commercial with the lady and the two handy men ~ vile. I detest that commercial and I’ll be glad when it’s run it’s course.

What had you scratching your head this week?
