Today the internet is buzzing over a video of actors Christopher Walken, Colin Farrell, and Sam Rockwell reading lines from the TLC show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. Walken, who is a legendary Hollywood actor with a well-documented offbeat sense of humor, has a long history of reading random things in his distinctive voice. So, hearing him read lines like, "Women that are of voluptuous size, not all that vajiggle-jaggle, is not beautimous," is exactly as entertaining as you think it would be!

I can't embed the video here (stupid rules! *shaking fist*), but you can watch it right here on YouTube.
Personally, I'll never understand the appeal of Honey Boo Boo, and I find it amazing that this show appears on a channel whose initials stand for "The Learning Channel." This sort of show is exactly why the internet had a huge fit recently when Big Bird became a reluctant political mascot to save PBS. After all, TLC was originally founded to educate and instruct through the medium of television. After privatization, "smart" shows were slowly edged out, until here we are, watching an obese woman talk about farts and describing how to make 'sghetti' out of noodles, butter, and ketchup.
Ooof, that sentence made my stomach hurt.
Anyhoo, I digress. Even idiotic subject matter like Here Comes Honey Boo Boo sounds like poetry when read aloud by the magnificent Christopher Walken, so check out the video! I would listen to this man read the phone book. Wait, do phone books even exist anymore? I'm honestly not sure.
