Video: The Collected Musings of Honey Boo Boo Child’s Mother

Just two weeks into TLC's Toddlers & Tiaras spinoff Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, June, the mother of the title character, has provided us with so many absurd and hysterical lines that we could hardly resist stringing them all together. Six-year-old beauty queen Alana is supposedly the show's star, since it takes its title from her nickname and centers on her also very entertaining remarks. But when a show's opening credit sequence features a character proudly farting in front of their home, surrounded by their children, said character will certainly steal some of the spotlight. And before you think, Wow, how mean to just watch and laugh at her, know that June is obviously in on the joke and seems to take pride in her ridiculousness. "Our family is crazy. We like to be ourselves," she says. "Like us or don't like us, we just don't care."
