Ask The Eye Halloween Edition, Scared Of Red State Reality,Try A Different Situation

Dear Eye View

I am having a problem with my three daughters. They have been watching a new “reality” show. The family in this show is crude, very poor, and spends ridiculous amounts of time and money on pageants for their youngest daughter. My girls have decided that they want to dress up as this family for Halloween. I am not comfortable with this, as I think it is mocking and in poor taste. My girls don’t see it that way. They think it is funny. One of them wants to dress up as the mother of this family—she is over 300 pounds, and she seems to burp and sneeze whenever she is on camera. Another wants to dress up as the pageant daughter—in full regalia. The third wants to dress up as the oldest daughter, who was pregnant and just had her baby. This child has a minor birth defect, and they plan on using this in the costume too. They’ve already modified a doll to be the new baby. They are practicing using Southern accents, adding in bad grammar and crude slang to imitate these people. I can’t seem to get my wife on board to veto this tacky idea; she actually thinks it’s funny, too. Am I being a big grouch, or am I right that this will completely offend our neighbors?

Outraged

Dear O

I understand your concern. Lighten up. For any neighbor to be outraged would be evidence they watch the show. If you are scared of a little Red State Reality try playing the Blues for Halloween. Try a different Situation. Hope this helps.
