Honey Boo Boo

Honey Boo Boo = GOLD MINE ... at least according to one Georgia store that's had a record-setting SALES BOOM after it was featured on the show.

TMZ spoke with the owner of Lucy Lu's Boutique -- who began selling HBB-themed shirts after the Boo Boo clan stopped by to purchase a dress on the 4th episode of the show. 

If you recall, Honey Boo Boo brought Glitzy the pig to get fitted for an adorable little piggy dress, but Glitzy went crazy ... and the store decided to implement a no-pig policy.

But right after the show aired, Lucy Lu says the store started selling bright-pink HBB t-shirts (below)  at $15 a pop ... and in less than a week, they SOLD OUT of all 350 shirts. 

Lucy says it's BY FAR the store's fastest selling shirt of all time.

And get this -- Lucy tells us a percentage of the proceeds will benefit two charities: an anti-bullying group AND the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

Dolla make 'em holla!!!!!

It is all about making money and mind control even off the lifestyles of the poor and unconcerned. The family kind of remind me of what it was like going to the supermarket years ago when people were just themselves. They would show up in hair rollers and didn't care what others thought. Now men go prowling the aisles like it is a meat market of women and people are obsessed with showing who owns the floor by bullying others out of the way.


Now if you are simple they want to make money off that too. Bullying is just a fake cause. People are ruder and more self centered today than ever plus they think they are preventing bullying. The breast cancer thing just makes money for the medical industry. The cure for breast cancer was discovered in 1996 in the book, Dressed to Kill.


There is no money to be made in women not wearing bras, so they have to buy a Honey Boo Boo Tee shirt instead. Our culture is so fake and twisted that anyone with a shred of geniuness is treated like just another commodity.

This all brings up a good question to me. Do people even know what it is like to be themselves any more? When they see others just being themselves, whether on Jersey Shore or Honey Boo Boo or even the rich Kardashians, they fly off the handle into a rage. Maybe they are just jealous that other people are comfortable enough with themselves to not try to conform to a standard.


I think all of these shows feature strong family values. Maybe that offends people too. These shows are like the modern day version of The Waltons. They try to hang on to their core values despite the rest of society crumbling around them.


People need to love one another and accept themselves first. It is hard to love others when you feel constantly judged by them. When you don't care, then you are free to accept others as you accept yourself.

There are human beings who would actually walk around wearing a Honey Boo Boo shirt? That's frightening.

First of all, I think it's in bad taste to call any human being "trash" . I just heard about the honey boo boo phenomenon months ago But it looks to me like she does no harm and the t shirts are cute and money has been donated to outstanding causes! So I say, "hats off" to Honey Boo Boo. She has as much right to live the good life as anyone else.
