Who the #$@# is Honey Boo Boo?

I expected at least one comment about my Honey Boo Boo post. But nothing.

Then this morning Nick asked me who Honey Boo Boo was?

So maybe that’s the problem. Nobody knows who she is?

Honey Boo Boo is the stage name of 7 year old Alana Thompson, who is the star of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”. Aired on TLC, it’s one of their top-rated shows.

Her show has been called everything from ‘must-see TV” to a “horror story posing as a reality television program.” It’s also been described as a car wreck you can’t turn your eyes away from.

She got her start on TLC’s Toddlers and Tiaras, a reality show that follows the lives of child beauty pageant contestants and their families, and then was spun off into her own show.

Apparently a couple of days ago someone asked her who she was voting for, Obama or Romney?

She said ‘Obama’, and then ask who Romney was.

Oh well.

Lunch today was a combination of leftover Mexican and Chinese, kind of Mexinese, or maybe Chinican. Whatever, it was really good

After lunch I finished up the affidavits to send off to South Dakota to get our absentee ballots send out to us. So after printing them out and signing I took them over to the Post Office in Colonial Beach and sent them off.

Nick and Terry headed off for the afternoon to visit some friends that live in the area so Jan and I were on our own.

For dinner Jan and I headed into Colonial Beach to have dinner at Fat Freda’s once again. We both enjoyed their soup and sandwiches last time and wanted to give it another shot.

Not sure what tomorrow is going to hold. We’ll just have to see.

Thought for the Day:

"The scary thing about those clods in Washington is:  if they all fell over dead tomorrow, we could probably have another bunch just like them elected within a month."

  1. Finally, a TV “personality” I like even less than the Kardashians!!! I didn’t think that was possible. Give me a freaking break!

  2. The little chubster needs a dietician, not a publicity-seeking “Mom”. TV is such a waste of time these days, I don’t even bother. I’d rather read or be on Facebook.

  3. Somebody put something about this person on Facebook a while back, and I think I asked the same question.
    This is one of many times when I’m glad I no longer have to watch, or flip past the drivel on TV.
    WE DON’T HAVE CABLE. Just internet and phone.
    We only really missed having it during the Olympics, and even then I probably would have been annoyed as well.

  4. Re: Honey Boo Boo……. somebody say “exploitation”!!!

  5. Honey Boo Boo is our culture at its worst.

  6. I almost asked the question after yesterday’s post but did not. From the little I knew about her (which was more than enough) I think all of the above comments apply.

  7. I just figured it was an inside joke, I don’t have a TV, have no idea who that is.

  8. Teri, as far as Honey Boo Boo is concerned: be happy, be very happy you don’t have a TV!

  9. Honey Boo Boo = sufficient and justifiable reason for the Iranians to drop their first nuke on us.

  10. Glad I didn’t waste my time

  11. I just did a search about what is a honey boo boo and i am sort of glad i dont get that channel anymore.. but its a shame cuz this could really ruin tlc which used to have good programming… One thing I have to say if u don’t already know it… that is reality isn’t real.. It is scripted and most of us already know this I hope…

  12. Oops I forgot to add… I never saw it but from what ive just researched , Maybe Animal Planet would be a better network to view this entertainment . People who watch wild animals are better prepared to watch stuff like this and not lose thier lunch..
