I may go to hell for this…

… but I love the Honey Boo Boo show. I do. It’s great. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not perfect by any means. I would like to see a little more book-readin’ from all the kids, and maybe not so much eating of sketti (recipe: pasta topped with equal parts ketchup and butter melted together in the microwave). But as opposed to the horrid pageant moms one sees if one watches Toddlers and Tiaras, Momma June really cares about her kids and wants them to feel loved and supported. She insists on doing things as a family even though three of her kids are teenagers and are probably not keen on doing familial activities. Alana is a really likeable kid, weird and fun, but really smart and sweet too. Yes, Momma June does look like a human thumb:

But if every family shown on TV could be so concerned about each other’s well-being, maybe I would like people more.

Additional goodness: When Alana plays with her fat belly.

And how neat makeup is. It really is amazing. It’s like two different people.
