I am primarily making fun of reality TV shows in this comic.
You want 'real'? Come to the place that makes the clothes you wear on your back. Cambodia has a LOT of culture and history to explore. It also has a lot of poor people too. So my vision of 'The Real World: Cambodia' wouldn't be a house full of college students. It'd probably be rural farmers.

I may revisit & revise this strip, drawn hastily. (Truth in advertising.)
