Maybe "obsessed" is too strong of a word. Maybe the phrase "constantly tolerate" is better.
Why are we constantly inundated with Kardashian stories in the media?
It's a valid question, since this vapid, talentless group of people most well-known for strutting around half naked take up more headlines than actual relevant events which could potentially matter to a person's daily life.
I mean, Kim? Last time I checked, posting pictures of one's butt on Instagram and having Kanye West's babies isn't talent. Sorry.
And yet, somehow they got their own show: Keeping up with the Kardashians. Now who would really want to do that for any extended period of time? No really, why? That's like keeping up with watching a group of squirrels play on the fence in the backyard. It's cute for about two seconds, then it gets boring and you just have to move on. (Actually, maybe that's unfair to squirrels.)
