I still have no idea who or what a "Honey Boo Boo" could possibly be. I also still have no idea if this makes me beyond awesomely cool or pathetically out of the loop.

Real Women Drink Akvavit: I still have no idea who or what a "Honey Boo Boo" could possibly be. I also still have no idea if this makes me beyond awesomely cool or pathetically out of the loop.


Only reasons why I am remotely familiar with this 'Honey Boo Boo' is because my mother complains about how it makes 'The South' look to the rest of the country. I can't say I can defend my cultural region of the U.S. against this program, as there are a lot of people here who resemble the lovely citizens on that show.

The other unfortunate circumstance is that the show is often referenced on Fark.

Be glad you're not familiar with this 'Honey Boo Boo.' It's one of those things where you feel stupider for even knowing of its existence.

Shirley Temple had talent.

Honey Boo Boo has diabetes.

Shirley Temple is still alive at age 84. Oh, and she was a hottie when she was 18 years old:

Back in the time period that Shirley Temple was popular, every traveling carnival included a freak show. This "Honey Boo Boo", along with reality TV, is today's freak show.

Oh dear gods. No wonder Cythraul's mother doesn't like them. Talk about reinforcing negative stereotypes. Especially the one teenage looking one with the slack jaw. Oh, and the obese older one. Which would seem to be most, if not all of them. Bonus ick points for dressing poorly, too.

Honey Boo Boo is today's Shirley Temple. And that says more about contemporary American culture than it does about Honey Boo Boo.

Honey boo boo is an intellectual equal to Rosie so I can see her comparison, but to think honey boo boo would ever be an ambassador to anywhere besides a bariatric center is a real stretch. Honey boo boo is on the Soup 22 minutes that showcase all that is wrong in TV every week, it does have funny bits

Shirley Temple had talent and grace, and even went on to make something of her life after being a child actress.

We will not be expecting Honey Boo Boo Child to look like this at 16:

Right.

And Kate Gossalin is today's Tallulah Bankhead.

I feel very sorry for her. She's being abused and manipulated by an idiot mother and idiot TV executives.

Admittedly, I would not be at all surprised to hear of some messed-up things in Shirley Temple's life, early or otherwise; that sort of thing seems to happen all too often to children in show business. But exploiting that sort of thing for personal gain is the end stage of showbiz mediocrity, not its beginning: few careers get launched that way, and the few that are tend to crash and burn quickly. Shirley Temple never did this. Honey Boo Boo is already doing it.

Forgive me if I don't think her odds are good. Her best chance frankly comes from the fact that she's too young to be a significant factor in her own exploitation. Everything can be blamed on the parents and producers, and so if she manages to last long enough, she'll be able to distance herself from it fairly well. But that's quite a big if.

Shirley Temple had an adorable sweet as can be docile charm to her which is what reinforced the talent bit. That's why she was popular. Honey Boo Boo is a walking catch phrase who thinks farts are funny.

The comparison is valid, though not how Rosie put it. Shirley Temple had talent and intellect that I wouldn't insult by comparing to bottom feeders like Honey Boo Boo.... but Honey Boo Boo is certainly our modern day version of Shirley Temple. They occupy the same role in our culture. That says a lot about what's happened to our culture.

Honey Boo Boo is to Shirley Temple as Rosie ODonnel is to Katherine Hepburn.

I refuse to watch "reality" television dating back to the very first "Survivor;" however, when channel flipping you find yourself "discovering" train wrecks like Honey Boo Boo and the "Toddlers and Tiaras." What concerns me most about this particular show is not the utter vapidity of the program, but rather the fact that this poor, fat child is being made to feel that she has some sort of "career" and when she is older and realizes that there are very few who make a living in entertainment, and even fewer who can do so while being overweight and being cursed with a think southern accent, she is likely to turn to drugs and alcohol to numb the pain. Thus she'll end up on another stupid reality show, "Intervention" in about 10 years. :(

South Park did a parody that is shockingly accurate. This should answer your question:

It's been talked about quite a bit on the internet and news. My first exposure was probably "The Soup" or "Jimmy Kimmel Live". Never seen the actual show. "South Park" did an episode about it last week.
