The Thompsons, of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo fame, are completely comfortable with themselves. What some would consider flaws and faux pas—farting, over-eating, a deformed toe, coagulated neck sweat—they view as personality traits. But at the same time, they invest a lot of time and money into child beauty pageants. So how do they resolve the seemingly disconnected philosophies between their hobby and their way of life?
Well, kind of like the question "How is a fart made?", the answer is at once complex and simple, it just depends on who you ask. A scientist would probably go into an explanation of the difference between exogenous sources and endogenous sources, and the process of our digestion system. Others might just say, "You push it out."
Farting is actually a very appropriate analogy for the Thompsons' notions of outer and inner beauty. After all, the opening of their show is a 10-second clip of Mama farting and the rest of them waving the stink away. (It turns out to be a different fart sound each time. One episode, it sounds deep and wet, while in another it's short and squeaky.)
