Six things we learned from ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,’ episode 3

here-comes-honey-boo-boo-tlc-325

No need to do a full recap of this ridiculous Georgia show called “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” on TLC. But we do learn so much in 30 minutes of episode three:

1) What’s a little cross promotion? June “Mama” calls herself an “extreme couponer.” One of TLC’s most popular shows? “Extreme Couponing.” At the market, she said she had purchased goods for a retail value of $120.02. Actual expenditures: $27.40. Not bad! Now if only her best friends were little people, sister wives and the Gosselins! [I earlier referenced the upcoming show about two women sharing one body and some folks below were insulted. I figure nobody will be insulted if I reference the Gosselins, eh?]

2) We learn what “neck crust” is! Pumpkin, one of Mama’s daughters, tries to be helpful at the market by presenting her rust remover.  Why? Mama has folds in her skin that look “rusty” because she isn’t all that thorough when cleaning herself in the tub.  Mama is not perturbed: “I just look good when I wanna look good.”

3) Is the pig smarter than the family? When the pig squeals, it sometimes sounds like it says Alana, “Honey Boo Boo’s” real name. “I hope mom don’t eat glitzy,” Honey Boo Boo says. If anything, it’s not potty trained and drops a load on the kitchen table. That’s intelligence!

4) What’s a “redneck slip and slide”? Tarp, baby oil and a hose, baby!

5) The wisdom of Honey Boo Boo: “Elvis is Santa Claus’ helper.”  Her source? “I know this because my daddy told me.”

6) The wisdom of Mama: “If you do the do, you do the time.” That’s her philosophy for Anna, who is having a baby at age 17. (Mama had Anna at age 15 so that’s an improvement!”)

I love that they have to have sub-titles under those marble-mouths while they make noises that come out of their faces. Honest to God, without those, I wouldn’t know what was going on.

They may be undignified or redneckified, I don’t care because we love watching this family. She is a loving mother that seems to enjoy the moment with her daughters and is not too busy to have fun and play with her kids. I’m actually jealous of her non stressed attitude and lifestyle. Maybe we could all learn something from this family. Honey boo boo, is too cute

Does this family have any idea at all that they are being humiliated on camera to the whole world. Mama is really disgusting to look at and the idea this young girl being pregnant is disgusted. What is the purpose of this program please. I am sick for these people. Please take this show off of the air and tell them to get help. I am from the South, Arkansas, and believe me, I don’t know anyone at all like these people.

Well, I’m from NJ and I don’t represent The Sopranos, the Real Housewives of NJ, or the Jersey Shore kids, and thank goodness I don’t know people like them either. However, these were and are popular shows. I have friends from Georgia, so I know that not all Georgians will act like these people. Apparently Honey Boo Boo struck a chord with the audience so they gave this family their own show. God knows, this family needs the money. Hopefully they will do something smart with it, and not waste it all on beauty pageant fees.

Can you people be any more negative about this show. The family is smarter then most of you. You diss it so much yet the more attention and publicity it gets the more likely it will be renewed. If you hate it that much DON’T WATCH IT. Turn the damn channel.

I watched the show to see what all of the hoopla was about. All I can say is……WOW!!!! Reality shows are getting really bad if this is the best the network could produce. However I loved the Redneck Games and the Mom’s description of the fashionable people who attended the event.

Kind of reminded me of the old TV show the Beverly Hillbillies with an updated format. Didn’t Granny want to enter Elle Mae in beauty contests all the time????

We got rid of the “H3llivision” a few years ago, and for good reason. 80-90% of programming is trash and/or propaganda. It appears this show likes to make fun of White southerners. Imagine the “uproar” if such a show made light of urban blacks or mexicans. The double standard of cultural marxism never ceases to amaze. >:(

Abby and Brittany Hensel are not a “two-headed” person. They are two individuals and you are an insensitive jerk. Mock the network all you want, but you have no right to talk about them like they’re circus freaks. You’re disgusting.

I haven’t seen why anyone would show a child standing in a grocery cart & think it was okay.
it seems like everyone sacrifices so she can do shows. Also not needed visual on neck rust, less body noises. Other than that I think the family likes to have fun! please show more about what

TLC has become the freak show channel. Nothing to “learn” here but in breeding and how not to eat. The Honey Boo Boo child will probably beat her mother’s record of 15, more like whenever puberty hits.

TLC has truly become the Freak Show channel. Just look at the lineup. “The Learning Channel”? Yeah, right. I am learning how vial and exploitative TLC is, and how many disgusting human beings there are in this World.

Alana has a bright future. In a few years, she’ll appear on MTV’s Teen Mom’s, followed by an episode of Intervention, and finally Hoarders.

My goodness Rodney, you sound so disgusted lol! What worries me is that we may not ever be rid of them, sort of the same way the K sisters won’t go away even though so many people hate them and they have no talent or nothing of substance to offer the world. Same deal here. The pity of it is that these people are being exploited and riding their ignorance all the way to the bank, but then again I guess they’re not so ignorant after all. What’s the saying, “crazy like a fox”?

What is this crap? People pay to have this mindless garbage piped into their homes? This is why I don’t have cable TV or satellite–in other words, what little TV I watch is free, which is about what it’s worth.

Rodney – you stated: “Now if only her best friends were little people, sister wives and two-headed people!”

Seriously? Are you making fun of those two girls (2 people, 1 body) that had their story air on TLC? If you, you’re just rude, tasteless and disrespectful. Shame on you. They didn’t ask to be born and grow up with one body to share. You’re lower than low.

Any self respecting Georgian should find these idiots and remove them from the state. No one can be this stupid and trashy in real life and every Georgian should boycott TLC for making these type of shows. Ironic that TLC is the learning channel, What the hell are their viewers learning? How to live off the government, how it is so awesome to become the town ho at the age of 12 and start popping out white trash babies that will live off the government for generations to come

I love it!! It reflects exactly what life is like in rural Georgia. Attention Attention: There is life outside of metro Atlanta and the Real Housewives. Honeyboo boo is that life.

Houses near the railroad tracks, food auctions, pet pigs, homemade slip and slides..the works. Sorry but this show for some is reality and thanks to TLC one family and town is getting some shine and hopefully a little bit of money.

When you cannot make fun of anyone else, there’s always ignorant white trash to ridicule on television. The outrage would reach to the heavens, and there would be an immediate call for execution of the producers of this show in the public square if this were a program about Blacks, Jews, Asians, Gays, Lesbians, (insert any and other group here)……

Cannot fix stupid. Why would anybody put this train wreck on television to influence our children? The children think it is funny. It is not. It is sickening. Repulsive, even.
