Honey Boo Boo-Translated for Non-Rednecks


You could swing a dead cat and not hit anyone around here that does not secretly like the Boo.

Come on people-you are recording Downton Abby and watching June and crew.  I’ll keep your dirty little secret, promise….

Us Southerners have a penchant for expressions that few understand. But when that AHA moment comes, OUR expressions are the funniest in the world…

Many of you need translation on phrases or words brought forth upon us from this TV show. Born in North Florida, and raised mostly in Georgia, I am here to help.  I come from a long line of rednecks in the deepest part of South Georgia. Y’all…

Herewith are some of my favorite expressions from June and them, with a few of my own sprinkled in:

Forklift Foot:  June had a forklift run over her toe at work one time and it never recovered. It is huge and gross. Therefore she calls it Forklift Foot. In the South, when you have a mangled body part, you name it. Like tater ear, rosey nose, stumpy…

Frito Feet:  How forklift feet smell. This is true. They do smell like Fritos. junebiscuit

Biscuit:  In Boo vernacular, this is their word for vagina. And there are way too many words out there that everyone has to call it other than the correct biological term. My Southern friends have called this Cooter, FiFi, and Virginia. Yes, Cooter is also a proud nickname in the South (Dukes of Hazzard, anyone?). And Yes,they KNOW what it means to nickname someone Cooter. Seriously.

Vajiggle Jaggle: Also used for the lower regions of a woman’s body, especially if overweight

Pregnatist:  Boo’s sister Chickadee. Really pregnant. Really really pregnant. And 17. Kind of like the Exorcist….well, the baby does have 2 thumbs….

Sketti:  Spaghetti. Which they eat with butter and ketchup. We’ve always called it PISSketti in my house. Same thing

Ooo’d: Taking a dump. As when Glitzy, the pig did it on their kitchen table in an episode. I personally like ‘dropping the kids off at the pool’…..fart-honey-boo-boo

Beautimous:  Gorgeous. This is a true word used here in the South for decades. June and them use ‘mous at the end of just about every word.

Smexy:  Loving term June uses for Sugar Bear dressed as Santa. Especially with that wad of chew in his bottom lip.

Sweatin Like A Whore In Church: one of my all time faves-been around a while-guilty is as guilty does- or any one of the women on any Bravo show

Go Go Juice: Mountain Dew and Red Bull. In most parts ’round here we call that a heart attack

It Is What It Is: June uses this phrase quite a bit. And she’s not even on Prozac from what I can tell

Finagly: As June says, ‘I’m not all about them big FINAGLY words.’  Which is probably words with more than four letters

Bam Bam Look: Wandering around in public without shoes on. Pebbles would be proudHoney+boo+boo_15b40d_4167527

You may love ’em or hate’em. But looks like they are here to stay. Redneckonize THIS people!

Well, press my watch, I gotta go drop some kids off at the pool…

    “That’s nice”

  2. Oh no! Don’t say it’s true! I’d never took you for a honey boo boo fan! 🙂

  3. Gail Moore says:

    Sorry, I just can’t watch. White trash is white trash, no matter what part of the country (see Sarah Palin for the Snowbilly rendition of Boo Boo) And how the hell do you go from Boo Boo to Downton? I cannot achieve that level of mental gymnastics.

      After the week I had last week-with a friend diagnosed with really bad cancer, I didn’t think watching a women die from pre-eclampsia on Downton Abby was going on my play list. Sorry, I just like to laugh…

  4. OMGosh!! Don’t git much better.

  5. Emily says:

    Wow, thanks for the education on redneck vocabulary…I truly learned a lot here today!!

  6. Amy says:

    This was great! I initially refused to watch this…but one episode and I could not take my eyes off the screen. Thanks for explaining some of the terms. We don’t know things like that up North. 🙂

  7. Stephanie Sprenger says:

    I have been too afraid to watch it; I’m afraid it will be like a trainwreck that I can’t look away from…this post kinda makes me want to give it a try!

  8. Julie DeNeen says:

    HA! Was Gail Moore serious? Or do you know her and it was a joke? Holding my comments until I know. 😛

  9. I’ve never seen Honey Boo Boo, which is surprising because I’m a reality tv show whore, but I support everything they’re about, considering they’ve set up trust funds for all the kids with all the money they’ve earned thus far. They may be rednecks, but they’re smarter than 99% of hollywood

    It’s a big, big world out there. Your blog is great So much so, that you are getting The Sunshine Award! Here’s the post linking to your blog: http://mowryjournal.com/2013/01/28/the-sunshine-award/.

  11. I don’t watch Honey Boo Boo and maintain that it represents everything that is wrong with our society today. BUT… with that said, these were really funny. I grew up in Virginia with family in south Florida (or Florida crackers, if you will) and my husband and his family, damn Yankees that they are, still make fun of me for saying ‘y’all.’ ‘Sweatin’ like a whore in church’ has always been one of my favorite sayings. And I had to laugh at, “In the south, when you have a mangled body part, you name it.”

    Found you through Circle of Moms – you’re just a few spots up from me on the List of Shame. Looks like we’re both being unfunny in the upper 60’s/low 70’s. 😉

    SO FUNNY and SO GREAT! And so true! I do believe the first time I ever heard anyone say “biscuit” was when Larry King interviewed Anna Nicole Smith… I think she might have coined it! 🙂
