The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Redneckipedia (aka “Rednexicon”)

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo quotes and term the complete Redneckipedia

In addition to bringing a whole new outlook on life, TLC’s hit reality series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo brings something else new to TV — a completely different language! From beautimous to vajingle jangle, this small town Georgia family is introducing an entirely new vernacular to millions of viewers around the country, and around the world.

So we’ve compiled for you a complete compendium of all the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo terms in something we call “The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Redneckipedia!” (My editor wanted to go with “Rednexicon,” but the appropriately themed Wikipedia puzzle ball graphic won out in the end.) Each entry will include the term, what part of speech it is, a definition, and a quote showing the context in which it was used on the show (if available). So why am I still writing? Let’s get to it y’all!
