Here Comes Honey Boo Boo! Child Pageant Star Lampooned In South Park Episode
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo! Again… Don’t worry; if those words would normally fill you with dread, then you might want to tune in tonight’s episode of South Park (October 3, 2012). The show’s creator’s Trey Parker and Matt Stone have decided that if seven year-old Alana Thompson is old enough to enter beauty pageants and have her own reality show, then she’s old enough to become the butt of a South Park joke.
Comedy Central have released a statement revealing that “Honey Boo Boo goes to a pig farm to pick out a spunky pig heart that knows how to work it,” in her animated cameo. The network also released an 18 second teaser clip, showing her being held over a pig pen by her father, whilst she says “I want that one… No, wait, that pig over there gave me the evil eye, I want that one, I want that one.” According to New York Daily News, the voice behind the comedy character sounds “suspiciously like Matt Stone’s.”
Of course, anyone wanting the real Honey Boo Boo will be delighted at the news that the TLC network recently commissioned a second season, as well as a series of seasonal specials of the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo reality show. Alana and her family will be able to buy all the pigs they please when they get their salary increase from $5-7,000 per episode to a whopping $15-20,000 per episode next season. It’s enough to make you squeal.
