21 Aug Honey Boo Boo Has Her Own… Pig?
If you’ve been living under a rock for the better part of the last few months, you’ve missed the cultural train wreck – er, phenomenon – that is Honey Boo Boo Child.
That’s right. The little girl from Toddlers in Tiaras who was born and raised in small town, down-home Georgia has been given her own spin-off show and lives it up doing all sorts of redneck stuff around the city.
Truth be told, the girl has a pretty funny personality, and she doesn’t seem as dumb as the cameras make her out to be, but you definitely get the feeling that you are watching complete trailer trash when you enjoy that show.
What’s more, it feels to me like I am losing some brain cells when it comes to watching her on television, too, since she surely isn’t stimulating any sort of conversation or interaction with me!
But it’s come to my attention recently that, as it turns out, Honey Boo Boo has a pig! That’s right – she has a pet pig that she loves to play around the house and yard with, and simultaneously plays, loves it, and almost tortures it with her attitude and the things that she gets into with that poor pig.
Maybe it’s good that she has a pet – and it’s certainly cool that she has a pig – but I suppose I’d wonder if America won’t get the wrong idea about pet pigs and more thanks to Honey Boo Boo’s antics around the world with her pet pig and everything else rotten that she seems to get herself into on the show.
What’s more, South Park has a show that makes fun of Honey Boo Boo, too! No word yet on if they are going to seriously involve the pig any longer, but for now, at least somebody is taking her out to the woodshed and making fun of her in due time.
Anyways, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo airs on TLC, and has proven popular enough that it’s been on for several seasons. So… not sure what that says about us, America!
