First SNL, now ‘South Park’ mocks Honey Boo Boo

Sure, Georgia’s own Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson is 2012’s version of Snooki circa 2010. Easily mocked -even if the poor kid is just seven years old.

“Saturday Night Live” joked about her and Mama a couple weeks ago. Jimmy Kimmel name-dropped her during the Emmys a few days back. Now it’s “South Park” on Comedy Central. The latest episode airs tomorrow night at 10 p.m. Here’s a clip:

Yesterday, TMZ reported that the family received a raise after the second episode without even asking and were getting $15,000 to $20,000 per show by the end. That’s a lot of cheese puffs! But the Mama June refused to move out of their home. She likes it there. No “Beverly Hillbillies” for her! I bet no matter how rich she gets, she’ll still be “extreme couponing.”

Seems like the bank is not helping them…you can’t buy class. The is the worst show ever. I feel
sorry for the kids. It’s like looking at a live circus, but with people. They never look clean.
Red Neck, Hill Billy at its worst ever….not cute!!!

They make no apology and they are what they are. And they are content with who they are….you’ve got to respect that!

I think TO SWEET is a VERY jealous and small minded person. The haters just can’t stand it when people they consider beneath them get ahead in life. And these same haters are people who more often than not consider themselves liberal minded. Sad sad people.

People are laughing at them not with them!!!! it’s a big difference… You don’t have to make a fool out of yourself to get money. Try getting an education and make money. What will happen when the show is over and people is still mocking them? The older girls don’t want to be labeled as rednecks, she said we have all our teeth….. I feel bad for them, i know the kids must pick on them at school if they even go to school….. what a shame.

Virginia Highlands Boy, they are not getting ahead in life, they are getting paid to be mocked and laughed at. Zero of this money will be used to improve the quality of their lives now or in the future. 5 shows could have guaranteed college tuition for the youngest one and it will not happen. Ten years from now she will be pregnant sitting on someones porch (because her mama will probably be dead instead of getting ahead) remembering how she was on tv when she was younger. It is a disgusting display of stupidity, a train wreck that people tune into on TLC to watch every week.

With mother’s like Kris Kardashian and Dina Lohan I’ll take June any day. Of course who knows what will surface when Boo Boo hits her teens.

Never watched the show but have seen portions of it highlighted on other programs. From what I have seen and read, I feel sorry for the little girl. Looks like a train wreck waiting to happen in 10-15 years. Move over Lohan and Bynes!

Reality TV blows!!!

To Sweet – Redneck is one word and don’t take the show so hard…it is entertainment! i watch wrestling, think it is real, and then have to remind myself that they all ride in the same car to the shows. i love you affection for the children…even the fat ones

John – she is no Lohan…not close!

That show isn’t entertainment — it’s evidence.

Our culture is rapidly declining. Can we go any lower? Very disturbing.

Honey Boo-Boo should be canceled and South Park and SNL were only doing what they do best making fun of stupid shows, and stupid people!

First Honey Boo Boo steals the ratings from the RNC & Romney, now her South Park episode will compete with the debates, forget Obama, Romney needs to worry about Honey Boo Boo! Insider preview of the episode here http://www.chewthedirt.com/honey-boo-boo-officially-mocked-south-park-tonight/ . Only in America…

Exploitation at its cruelest level. This family is being sacrificed for ratings. They can’t possibly be as insipid and devoid of any intelligence as they are being shown. Or can they?
