Depending on your opinion, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is either fascinating trash television or a sign of the continuing decline of American culture.
But last night, Honey Boo Boo and Mama appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and further left anyone with half a brain wondering why we really care about these people. If you like the show or are just grossly fascinated with it, you can check out the clips below.
Probably the most interesting thing to come out of the interview is that Mama is still addicted to clipping coupons, despite being a reality TV star. Also, Mama seems to believe that “coupon” is a verb as well as a noun. “Unfortunately, because we have a busy schedule, I don’t get to coupon as much as I used to,” she said, “but when I do get to coupon, oh yeah, I coupon a lot. It’s kind of like an addictive drug to me.”
Honey Boo Boo barely talks at all in this interview, looking incredibly bored until a few moments when she seems to be overtaken by either attention deficit disorder or chugging some of her infamous “go-go juice.” During the interview, Honey Boo Boo ends up flashing something that resembles Spock’s Vulcan greeting and then turning it into something incredibly profane and spends most of the rest of the time shouting incoherently, mocking her mother, looking around the couch and being genuinely obnoxious.
Not surprisingly, Boo Boo admits to not knowing who Mitt Romney is and has to take a minute to think before answering that Barack Obama is the current President of the United States. But despite knowing nothing about them, she rallies behind Obama after finding out that Romney recently admitted to preferring Snooki to Honey Boo Boo.
In full disclosure, I’ve never actually watched an episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. But after seeing these clips, I know I’m not missing much.
