Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’s Christmas Card!

And it is the most delightful thing ever and totally reminds me why I love this family.

honey boo boo christmas cardI’ve written about this before, but something that I really hate about modern life is what I call the Tyranny of Tastefulness. I blame it on Martha Stewart and her ilk telling all of us what “classy” looks like, dooming families to be photographed year after year in white shirts and jeans for their holiday cards.

The Shannon/Thomson family is not having any of that! I LOVE that they are not all color coordinated. That Sugar Bear is WEARING HIS BALL CAP. He’s all, “I got a hit teevee show and I ain’t takin’ my damn cap off if I don’t wawn’t to.” I also love whatever is going on with the background there. Are they in a WalMart? Possibly. Or maybe Shh! It’s A Wig!* staged family portraits this year. (That would explain Alana’s green extensions. Or hat. Or whatever is happening on her head.)

I also love that they are straight up, “Yeah, that’s the baby Chickadee had and she’s cute! We dare you to judge her for being an unmarried teen mom.” Chickadee and Pumpkin making the exact same face? Adorbz. (Yes, I know their names. There’s no need for judgment.)

Contrast this with the Kartrashians’ 2012 Christmas card, the embodiment of everything I hate:

Kardashian Christmas cardUgh. They are so gross. Mostly because they think they’re NOT gross. They think they’re klassy in their all white outfits. And they think we’re all too stupid to notice that they were obviously never all in the same room for this cobbled together, Photoshopped “merriment.”

My wish for each of you is a Honey Boo Boo holiday: one in which we can all be exactly who we are, no Photoshop necessary!

*Also known as “Shit’s A Wig”

 

Linked Out Love :: September 14, 2012

Earlier this week, there were reports that Kris Jenner (horrible Kardashian mom) criticized June Thompson (Honey Boo Boo’s mom) for exploiting her kids for money. Predictable “pot, meet kettle” headlines everywhere. But now Kris says she did no such thing. Ooh, Kris Jenner, I see what you did there. Throwin’ shade like a BAWSE. (E Online)

This headline implies that wine in a box somehow isn’t classy enough on its own. I don’t get it. What’s wrong with just carrying it with you? (The Frisky)

This kid makes me wish I could travel back in time so I could grab my 15 year old self by the shoulders and repeatedly shout, “What the F*CK are you DOING??! Get off the phone, quit painting your nails and go LEARN something! JEE-zus.” (Cheezburger)

As a show of love to my readers, I would like to share some resources on the 5 Stages of Amy Poehler/Will Arnett Breakup Grief. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. (The Frisky)

Can you imagine discussing group health insurance with your Bunny Mother? What about demerits for carelessness with hair, nails, shoes, makeup or costume? No? Well, you can learn about it all right here in the 1968 Playboy Club Bunny Manual. (Retronaut)

Hey there, fellow moms! I know we don’t agree on everything in this crazy, mixed-up world but I think we can all agree that potty-training your kids in the middle of a restau – HOLY MARY! What is WRONG with people??!  (Huff Po)

Here’s me watching that video:
