here in the egregious mold pit brought the subject up in the context of a
matter that I will not bore you with, and I had to ask about it, being
unfamiliar with the concept of a Honey Boo Boo.
At first, I thought that my interlocutor was joking; American
civilization could not have sunk to such a level without my noticing the
descent, and that a honey boo boo was probably the name of Yogi Bear’s sidekick’s
girlfriend or a slang term for a man who insults his wife in front of his mistress. But no, there is such a creature as Honey Boo Boo, and yes, there
are people who want to watch her and her family on television. I know I should
not read too much into this sort of thing, but I have a hard time convincing
myself that the end of Western civilization is not at hand.
