Honey Boo Boo Gets the South Park Treatment

Like other breakout reality stars before them, Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson and Mama June will be lampooned on an episode of South Park. In the teaser clip, Honey Boo Boo and her mom are shopping for a pig heart for an upcoming pageant, noting that they need a "pig with pizzaz." In the episode description on Wikipedia, it seems that the story will focus around Cartman's obesity and his decision to use a scooter in lieu of walking. Somehow, in the midst of that, Alana and Cartman become bitter rivals.

I kind of feel like South Park misses more than it hits. I hadn't watched it in YEARS and years until recently, and I wasn't really a fan back then either, but while I feel like there are definitely times when the satire and comedy is a lot smarter than what it was in its first few years, that isn't always the case. I remember reading that each show is created and made in a week, which is impressive, and sometimes deadlines can lead to some remarkable stuff, but I think even the cleverest people can suffer under that sort of pressure and be forced to snag the low hanging fruit for jokes and the like when they don't have the time to really develop smarter stuff.
