Honey Boo Boo
 
Admittedly, I’ve always considered GLAAD the most bourgeois LGBTQ organization out there—sort of a feel-good parade of celebrities patting themselves on the back, pushing for the kind of gay acceptance that your grandma could muster. But since they just nominated the John Waters fever dream that is Honey Boo Boo for a GLAAD Media Award, they suddenly seem a little less square. From their website:

Breakout TLC reality star Alana Thompson, better known as Honey Boo Boo, said on her show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, “Ain’t nothing wrong with bein’ a little gay. Everybody’s a little gay.” Thompson’s out Uncle Lee Thompson (“Uncle Poodle”) and the rest of the family participated in Spirit Day on October 19. GLAAD posted an exclusive video of Lee speaking about being bullied for growing up gay in the South and Alana posted a picture to the official Honey Boo Boo Facebook captioned, “You can’t change the way you are or who you fell in love with… we support Uncle Poodle and all the other poodles in the world too.”

Of course people are losing their minds over such trash being recognized, (apparently the world is suddenly going to hell in a handbasket because a chubby little working-class redneck girl isn’t appropriately ashamed), but kudos to GLAAD for giving a platform to queer folks (and their allies) who don’t meet the luke-warm liberal vision of ideal respectability.

Lee Thompson is also HIV positive, and adamantly vocal about the importance of safe sex—can we get him a nomination, too? Here he is talking about bullying for GLAAD.

Honey Boo Boo portrait made from junk and trash


 
Jason Mecier‘s portrait of Honey Boo Boo made of “two cans of hair spray, three tiaras, make-up, mascara, fake eyelashes, coupons, sketti, butter, ten cheese balls, two Red Bulls, one Mountain Dew, a McDonald’s chicken nugget, a pink Snuggy box, an empty toilet paper roll, one cabbage patch doll and a jar of Pigs Feet.”

Apparently it took Mecier over 50 hours to make it.

Go go juice


 
Honey Boo Boo goes off the chain when that go go juice starts runnin’ around her brain.

“Dolla makes me holla.”

When Boo Boo’s done, you might want to check out The Clint Eastwood RNC remix and see what a lifetime of drinking go go juice will do to your brain.

Remember “Honey Boo Boo,” the hyperactive, over-caffeinated “go-go juice” chugging star of the child beauty pageant reality show Toddlers & Tiaras? How could you forget her, right? Well, Honey Boo Boo and her family, mother June, father “Sugar Bear” and sisters “Pumpkin,” “Chubbs” and “Chickadee” will soon be appearing in a new six-part series on TLC called Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

The network this will air on is TLC. That used to stand for “The Learning Channel.” I wonder what those initials stand for now?

I also wonder if “Mountain Dew” is going to sponsor this? If not Mountain Dew, who?

How many products would benefit from an association with a show like this??? Domino’s Pizza, Little Caesar’s, Doritos, I guess the list is depressingly endless, isn’t it?
