Dear GYA, I started watching this new show called Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. It's a Toddlers & Tiaras spin-off on TLC, and while afterwards it does make me want to take a cold shower with my clothes on, I can't seem to stop watching it.--- Hell, I've been on some pretty bad benders before -- like, I once survived a whole season of Brandy & Ray J while on a steady diet of caramel corn and Squeeze Its-- but this is a completely different beast. Anything to do this weekend after I suffer through TLC's summer programming? - Mitch Speckler, Sandy
