Hey, I don’t want to make you guys feel bad, but that Honey Boo Boo family is totally out-earning most of you, just by honey-boo-booing all over your television. I mean, they probably are – after all, I still haven’t seen your tax returns, MamaPop readers, so I don’t know how much your family pulls in a year, but statistics would have me believe that most of you do not make more than $96,000 a year.
After a report came out, estimating that the family makes between $2,000-$4,000 per episode, June “Mama” Shannon, was like, “You better redneckognize—it’s way more than that.”
Excuse me, just gonna blow my nose and dab my eyes on my latest student loan statement real quick. Oh, look, Honey Boo Boo could pay that off for me in just eight episodes and probably have enough money left to buy her local Costco clean out of Mountain Dew and Red Bull.
With a first season run of 24 episodes, this means the Shannons are making “way more” than $96,000 a year for, I dunno…having a near pathological immunity to embarrassment? What exactly is it they do that has so many of you rapt? I’ve only been able to make it through about five minutes of an episode before I decided I needed more intellectual stimulation and switched over to Ow My Balls, which doesn’t even really exist outside of Idiocracy yet, but it basically might as well at this point because HONEY BOO BOO.
