Honey Boo Boo Has Her Own… Pig?

Written by Lillian Tram on August 21st, 2013


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!

    I wonder if she saw the South Park episode that ripped on her for getting a pig lol. Or is it merely a coincidence?

    Omg! Why on earth does she need a PIG?? Lol.

    First of all, yes, I agree totally that I’m not sure what that says about America… why is this even a show? Sure, it’s entertaining but… what happened to the good ole Shirley Temple days?

All natural nice ingredients.Oscar sends Arthur lots of purrs and head rubs.

    Well people say people start to look like their pets… maybe she decided a pig was the closest thing to lookin like her 🙂

    I totally remember watching this episode and laughing so hard haha. I didn’t ever think in a million years that Honey Boo Boo would actually go pick out a pig haha. Iwonder if they got video footage of her picking it out. “I wunt that wunn!” haha

    This is unreal! Just found the link for this on one of my friend’s Twitter links and I cannot believe this. I bet the show purposely did this to increase the ratings. I think it’s stupid but hey that’s show business I guess.

    Too funny lol. Why did she decide on a PIG of all pets she could have gotten? Probably just because of that South Park episode. She can get a new heart now if she needs one lol.
