“South Park” creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker have never been shy about lampooning figures in pop culture; in fact, it’s what makes the show so popular and part of what has kept it a hit for the past fifteen years.

If you’ve ever seen what happens behind the scenes at the South Park studios, you know that the guys and their team of writers sit in a room and throw ideas around until one sticks, then expand upon it using a dry erase board until they get it right. The themes often sprout from what’s going on in the news, an experience one of them had, or a trending topic similar to what one can find on the Twitter sidebar. And no one has been more on trend lately than Honey Boo Boo.

It was only a matter of time, really, before the guys grabbed hold of the Thompson family and did their thing. Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson and her mother, sisters, father, and pet pig have taken the nation by storm over the past month or so after landing a reality show on TLC, garnering praise from some for being “real” and condemnation from others for allowing themselves to be taken advantage of by a network that is clearly making fun of them.

The episode doesn’t air until tonight, but considering what we’ve seen of the Thompson family so far–farting, an obsession with cheese balls, Mt. Dew chugging, and a baby with two thumbs–Matt and Trey probably held nothing back with their portrayals. You can watch a small preview below.

    This has to be the most ghastly child alive. Considering where she sprang from, it it isn’t surprising in the least – but OMG, she is the worst worst worst. And why is she toothless?

    Thanks for posting that clip Amanda. I haven’t watched South Park in years, but after seeing that clip I can’t resist. I love how the cartoon really looks like June. You can’t blame anybody for making fun of them when they are clearly self parodies acting for the camera. Unfortunately, I am stuck sitting in my office at DISH tonight, and I can’t watch it as it airs. However, I can go online and set my Hopper to record that show and I can watch it when I get home. I already have the debate covered with Primetime Anytime, but I have the feeling that I am going to need something funny to watch after I watch Mitt and Obama go no where for two hours.
