Boston! Where we hold true to our values: family, telling it like it is, and white/green color/font combos that remind me of my olduh bruthuh's Bird-era Celtics paraphernalia.

A teaser trailer has just been released for "Wahlburgers," an A&E reality show (debuting Jan. 22) starring brothers Mark, Donnie and Paul, chef at the eponymous Hingham burger joint, as they give each other good-natured jabs and run da-family-bidness.

It looks pretty entertaining. Plus: New Kids on the Block, burgers, and memories of Marky Mark and his Calvin Klein-covered funky bunch? That's a guilty pleasure hat trick right there.

The show seems likable. I'll take it with extra cheese.

It's worth noting that the Wahlberg brothers also own a highly acclaimed, upscale Italian restaurant (Alma Nove) next door. But who wants to see them run that? That might send the wrong kind of message to America: that Boston is not just a city of simple, scrappy sports fans and that — in between errands at the Christmas Tree Shop and fundraising firehouse chili cook-offs, of course — we even find time to serve as the country's hub for academia, health care, and progressive politics. We can't have that type of image out there. America's not ready for it, guys, and I want every visitor to our humble city to believe that they will be greeted off the plane with a lobsta' roll, a Dropkick Murphys song and a punch to the face.

But only cause we loves ya.

Note: It's also Throwback Thursday. Please enjoy the following video (un)ironically.
