Keeping Up With Honey Boo Boo
I am embarrassed to say that I just finished watching the first two episodes of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. I am not embarrassed for watching it but that it took me so long to watch it.
Let me tell you – I am not keeping up with this family.
Honey Boo Boo (aka Alana)’s mom had her first daughter when she was 15. Now, that daughter is pregnant at 17. That means that Honey Boo Boo’s mom is going to be a grandmother at 32 or 33. So if I wanted to match that, I would need to have a baby like tomorrow, and that baby would have to have a baby when they were two years old. Not sure that’s going to happen!
Here are a few of my favorite quotes from the show:
“Elvis is Santa’s helper.”
- Honey Boo Boo
“We gonna put some paint on this old barn” (in reference to putting makeup on her face)
- First Mama, the Honey Boo Boo
“A bath, mud wrestling and water slide all in one. That’s how rednecks do it.”
“I’ve not heard of forklift foot before. Apparently that’s when you got your foot run over by a forklift and it gets all mangled”
- Woman giving them a pedicure
“We love to get road kill. And we like to clean it, grind it up, process it and put it in the freezer. Then on the weekends, we like to grill it and have a good time”
-Sugar Bear (Honey Boo Boo’s Dad)
Even though the show was highly entertaining, I am not sure I can continue watching it. It one might even been too much for me.
Yah, I know. I am disappointed in myself too.
