So there's the family from rural McIntyre, Georgia. They live in a little clapboard house with Christmas lights that stay up all year and train tracks that literally run right beside their back yard. Lemme tell ya folks, that couldn't be anymore appropriate 'cause this show is a train wreck that you can't look away from. First of all, Mama June has 4 daughters all to different fathers. Uh Yea, can you believe 4 different guys would actually hit that?????? Plus, I guess June didn't learn her lesson about birth control since she got pregnant at 15 and her oldest daughter just gave birth at age 17. How about them multigenerational babies havin' babies?
Now ya gotta love the fact that Mama rips off a giant fart during the opening credits of the show, and that Honey Boo Boo talks about and makes fart noises constantly. Hhhhhmmmm, on second thought I wonder if we are kin somewhere along the lines? And since I fancy myself as a bit of a redneck, and live in the south, I really don't have a problem deciphering what these folks are sayin' on their show. However, I can understand the need for subtitles for others not as fortunate as I.
The thing I do admire about this clan though is there is no pretense to be anybody other than who they are, and they honestly seem truly happy. Whether it's eatin' cheese balls outta a giant container, bobbin' for pigs feet at the redneck games, or goin' to the water park as a treat for Mama losin' 2 whole pounds to reach the svelte weight of 306, this family has a good ol' time. Nuthin' really kills their joy except maybe lookin' at Mama's toe that got run over by a forklift when she worked at the warehouse as a young'un. However, the maggots sure did seem to enjoy it.
But seriously I did learn a valuable lesson from watching this sure to be Emmy award winning show. When you can go from drab:
there is hope for any Plain Jane to be a Beauty Queen, 'cause obviously them there pageants are all about the hair and makeup!!!
