Did anyone happen to catch Honey Boo Boo Child and her family on their new show "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" on TLC last night? The show chronicles the Georgia family ofalum Alana Thompson as they help Alana, a.k.a. Honey Boo Boo Child, on her quest to becoming a beauty queen.
On last nights premier episode, goo.gl/mDLUU , Honey Boo Boo Child and her family visit the "" fair, where sister "Pumpkin" (Lauryn) bobbed for raw pigs feet, Alana and her sister "Chubbs" (Jessica) belly-flopped into a mud bath and Alanas mother, June, bid on junk food at an auction.
Thats right, there are such things as food auctions and the Thompsons visit them to buy snacks for the family. A fast-talking auctioneer auctions off chips, candy and cakes to a serious group of bidders in fold-out chairs.
There were plenty of moments to remember, or maybe try to forget, from last nights episode, but one part of the show that stood out was the sheer amount of snackage going on at the Thompson residence. If you werent keeping tabs on the Honey Boo Boo Child diet last night, here are the essentials:
Chips Ahoy cookies, mini lemon bundt cakes and potato chips bought at the junk food auction, neon orange cheese puffs for breakfast, pork rinds for lounging on the couch, and chicken nuggets.
People may have been appalled at the Thompsons' choice of munchies, but snack lovers know better than to judge. I guess we all have our favorites.

And what is in a Finnish baby box? Let's just say, moms in Finland get hooked up.
The functioning crib contains a mattress, mattress cover, undersheet, sleeping bag, duvet cover and blanket; a range of clothing, from a snowsuit, hat and mittens to light rompers and leggings in unisex colors and patterns; grooming items including a hooded towel, nail scissors, a toothbrush, a bath thermometer, diaper cream and a washcloth; cloth diapers and muslin squares; a picture book and a teething toy; bra pads and, er...

A man went on an early morning shooting spree across two Texas counties Sunday, killing a woman and injuring five other people one of them the Concho County sheriff before dying in a shootout with law enforcement, authorities said.
At least nine state and local agencies chased the man a 23-year-old North Carolina resident whose name wasn't released because his family hadn't been notified for almost two hours, as he opened fire from his pickup truck on random cars across McCulloch and Concho counties, near San Angelo in central Texas.
The shooter eventually died in a gunfire exchange with a state trooper and a game warden on a highway north of the town of Eden, the state Department of Public Safety said. That was when authorities discovered that he'd been armed with an assault-style rifle, a handgun and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.
The victims included Alicia Torres, 41, who was shot to death in her car in the town of Eola, and Concho County Sheriff Richard Doane, who was being treated for non-life-threatening injuries at Shannon Medical Center in San Angelo.
Investigators pieced together this timeline of events:
The gunman first opened fire about 4:30 a.m. local time (5:30 a.m. ET) on a vehicle in the Eden area of Concho County, hitting a woman who remained in Shannon Medical Center on Sunday night. Her conditio
He then made his way to a convenience story in Brady, in McCulloch County, where he shot and injured two people as they sat in their vehicle. They were treated and released.
The gunman then turned around and headed back to Eden, where he fired at another vehicle at about 5:30 a.m. That victim was also treated and released.
Just after 6 a.m., Concho County sheriff's deputies responding to a call of shots fired in Eola found Torres dead in her car.
About 15 minutes later, Doane, the sheriff, caught up with the truck north of Eden on U.S. Highway 83. As state troopers arrived to assist, the suspect fired and wounded Doane.
That started the shootout, with a state trooper and a game warden who'd showed up to help exchanging gunfire with the suspect. The man was shot and died at the scene,
, authorities said.
No other details were released. Investigators would say only that they were reviewing "multiple crime scenes."
