American TV viewers have a long history of making hits out of hillbilly shows like "Hee Haw" "The Beverly Hillbillies", "Andy Griffith" and of course "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."
We don`t want rednecks moving next door to us, setting up a junker on blocks in their front yard, barbequing roadkill in the backyard, blasting twangy Country Music, and farting up a storm.
But we love watching redneck shenanigans on the small screen, watching Honey Boo Boo and her redneck kin on TV is pure comedic bliss. You don`t even need to light up a doobie to appreciate the magic.
I can understand Americans loving Honey Boo Boo, Mama, Sugar Bear, Pumpkin, Chickadee, Chubbs, and the hillbilly baby with three thumbs, but I`m flabbergasted that "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" is a huge hit all over the world including Brazil, Russia and Portugal.
The love that Honey Boo Boo and her family have for each other transcends language barriers. You don`t have to be an expert on redneck dialect to appreciate a reality show with universal family values.
Honey Boo Boo you have conquered the world, let`s hope that extraterrestrials pick up your signal, they would be so impressed that they would land their flying saucer in your backyard, right next to the railroad tracks.
