'South Park' Set to Tackle 'Honey Boo Boo'
Latest episode pits Cartman against TLC's pageant princess
By Kenny Herzog Oct 3, 2012 8:43AM
It was only a matter of time until Trey Parker and Matt Stone clamped their satirical teeth down on a hunk of Honey Boo Boo Child. (Yep, that sentence just happened.) On Wednesday night's episode of "South Park," titled "Raising the Bar," Cartman decides he's tired of being harangued about his body image and is going to be a proud advocate for obesity. But the portly elementary schooler soon discovers he's not alone in wanting to hog the spotlight. Literally.
In one of a few "Raising the Bar" scenes made available via Comedy Central's website, none other than "Here Comes Honey Boo" starlet Alana Thomspon herself makes an appearance. Aided by Mama June and "Sugar Bear" Mike, HBB parses through a neighborhood sty, looking for a swine with "pizzazz," as she's now entering "pageants with a pig heart." We're not sure what that really entails (or entrails), but are positive we'll find out when the episode airs at 10 p.m. Meanwhile, enjoy the below clip, and to quote Parker and Stone's caricature of Sugar Bear, "Work it Girl."
"South Park" airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central.

I THINK THIS SHOW IS ADORABLE. HONEY IS OVERWEIGHT, BUT SHE STILL HAS TIME TO DO WHATEVER SHE WANTS TO DO. HER MOTHER IS REAL - SOMETHING YOU GUYS NEVER THOUGHT OF IN YOUR MESSAGE. I KEEP HOPING FOR HER AND HER FAMILY, BECAUSE THEY ARE WHAT THEY SAID THEY ARE.

Maybe, these idiots will see how stupid they are, and realize that they are doing that child more harm than good. She is not cute, funny ,or adorable. She is overweight, obnoxious, and irritating. Talk about the dumbing down of America.! Who thought it was a great idea to pit babies against one another for crowns? The awful mothers on "Toddlers and Tiaras" are ruining not only their children's childhood, they are ruining their skin by putting all that crap on their faces You should not be living out your dreams through your children.We have enough sick and twisted people out there that are pedophiles, you are giving them fodder at the expense of your CHILD!.Instead of spending money on clothes and makeup and what ever other stupid crap they do ,WOMAN,teach your child to speak properly! Illiteracy is a serious problem in this country and you are contributing to it! What is the draw of this show? are people that bored they have to watch those morons throw themselves into the mud? That child already has a sense of self entitlement.How Old is she? Hooters called they have a job waiting for her once she is of age,TLC you have hit an all time low.What happened to Trading Spaces? Instead you put on a Family who cant seem to get the hint ( IF nearly dying and losing a child is not enough of a hint) they DO NOT need to repopulate the world, and these women who force babies to act like adults,putting them in gowns and makeup and having them do dances that adults should not even do? TLC you need to stop putting trash on tv.

South Park is hilarious. Honey Boo Boo's mother is disgusting and I hate how this little kid probably already weighs more than I do in my 20s. I think lots of these reality shows are retarded, (Even though some are mildly entertaining lol... like the new one that focuses on the lives of cheap skates) But I agree with the other posts that say anything that makes the Retard-Ashians not be in the spot light so much anymore is a good thing. However, it is only good until what ever took it's place is now the IT thing. We should just have far less reality tv shows. It's ridonkulous that we call them that anyway.

As weird as those reality stars are they will probably see it as a complement .

Honestly, why don't you morons quit watching this crap and go see what is really going on in the world? Just askin'.....

I think it's just so sad Honey Boo Bo's so called mother and grandmother think this is good for her. She is turning into an overweight brat and doesn't even know the difference. All the mothers of child models are making their cutie pies into monsters. And that is way too sad for me to watch. So for me to watch your little dolls, parade like little princesses? NO WAY. Teach them to be respectful, cleanly pretty without the makeup and false smiles and put them back into piggy tails. Thant will get my attention. Mosre dow nb to earth shows will be better for American children to learn from than these fake, crazy mother pushing fake talent shows/no talent shows...

I think South Park is making fun of me somehow. I don't know how but I think someone wrote them who knows me or something. Whatever, looks like a great show and don't want to miss it.

I'll take Honey Boo Boo and her REDNECK family over those conceited....self-centered...materialistic....trashy Kardashian family any day!!! I can only handle watching Honey Boo Boo and her family for about ten minutes...then I have to change it. When I surf through my channels and see the Kardashians....I want to shoot out my TV screen!!!!

Finally the Kardashians have competition .... Hard to get that when your so low on the list of things .... In this case TV programs ..... That are important or Have any redeeming qualities.

Oh, after seeing her for the first time, seeing how plump she is and looking at her mother and grandmother, I figure she's going to have a second chin by the time she's a teenager. Maybe in following episodes she'll be working in that Hooter's style restaurant seen in previous episodes. I figure in real life after her cuteness wears off, it's really the only job she'll be able to get.

Maybe Honey BOO NEEDS TO GO ON THE MICHELLE OBAMA DIET PLAN AND WORK IT OFF GIRL.....and not be the butt of jokes.
