Honey Boo Boo


I just read the most hilariously scathing review of TLC's new reality show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo in the latest People magazine.  I had to share.

"Here Come Honey Boo Boo, TLC's new reality show about 6-year-old Toddlers & Tiaras star Alana Thompson, is one miserable half-hour.  Nicknamed Honey Boo Boo Child - which sounds like Winnie-the-Pooh's girlfriend - the beauty-pageant hopeful lives with her family in rural Georgia.  The Thompsons, whose southern-accent dialogue is accompanied by patronizing subtitles, are depicted as uncouth blobs of fat.  They could be redneck serial killers in a horror film.  The show at least will bring them some money along with fame or notoriety - for reality stars, one is as good as the other."

The reviewer then goes on to give the show one out of four stars.  Damn, that's harsh!

While I can understand how this show is offensive to, well, human beings, I personally can't get enough.  Once you get past the fact that they all have nubs for teeth, they are all obese from eating 4 gallon jars of cheese balls and pork rinds for snacks, and that the matriarch of the family looks like a giant thumb, they really are quite charming.  Except for Sugar Bear.  I'd say he'd benefit from taking the ever-present wad of dip out of his mouth, but then he might be able to say more, and that would be good for absolutely noone.  He isn't exactly a wordsmith.

Like I said, I can't get enough.  Honey Boo Boo Child's level of sassification is really something to be admired.  In the words of no one who mattered ever, "Get.  It. Guuurl!"  But while you'e getting it, lay off the cheese doodles.
