South Park is taking on TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo in Wednesday’s episode. Granted, this is picking on the biggest, broadest pop culture target around right now. But we’re all for going for the easy joke in the case of breakout sensation HCHBB, the child beauty pageant queen docu-soap has polarized viewers while climbing in the ratings nearly every week. The TLC series also recently received an order for several more episodes.

On second thought, maybe it’s not such an easy joke. Mocking Honey Boo Boo is a bit like going after Jersey Shore (which South Park took on a couple rounds back). Some shows are so broad that they dare you to figure out a way to make fun of it.
