Honey Boo Boo in trash (and other adventures in social networking)

What my followers on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ saw today:
(Day started out with two flicks: Abraham Lincoln + vampires. Though not in the same movie. From the sublime to the ridiculous.)

• #Lincoln: Magnificent yet human. Lots of parallels for today. Perf of the year (so far) from #DanielDayLewis

• #BreakingDawn2: Oddly anticlimactic, alternately hilarious and creepy the wrong ways round. #Twilight

• Geeks are everywhere. ESPN Hosts Drop The Princess Bride Quotes All Night Long

And how those guys made it happen: A Two-Man Oral History Of “The Princess Bride” Episode Of ESPN NFL Kickoff

• This kind of scares me. A Honey Boo Boo portrait made of thematically-appropriate trash

     You’re welcome; MAJ was the first person I thought of when I saw that.

    Sounds like the ESPN sportscasters were channeling Dan Rydell & Casey McCall (Sorkin’s “Sports Night”.)  Wow, I really miss that show & those guys.  But not enough to watch ESPN.

    Here’s the thing about Honey Boo-squared and her family… they are horrible, grotesque even, but they always seem to be having so damned much FUN in the clips I’ve seen of the show (never seen the show proper, but I am an avid The Soup watcher.)  I’m sensible and not grotesque, and everyone I know seems to be sensible and not horrible at all, and none of us ever seem to have any fun.  It’s not as if our grim nose-to-the-grindstone approach is giving us any financial security whatsoever (see “The Ant and the Grasshopper”), so I wonder if, in the end, the joke’s on us.

    Edited for typo.
