Inane, Vapid, Overly Contrived Facial Expressions Known As "Mugging" Have Ruined Human Interaction

The character of Jennifer Aniston on the TV show "Friends" as well as the character: Penny on the TV show "Big Bang Theory" demonstrate an extreme and cartoonish set of facial expressions in a contrived reaction to every phrase uttered by the other characters.
These are not the facial expressions that every day people make on the street or at the mall. They are the expressions that cartoon characters make in order to look cute and to over-emphasize a point.
