(RNN) – Here comes … Adorable Toots?
If a dolla makes you holla, you'd better redneckognize the newest bit of internet lunacy.
As if Honey Boo Boo weren't a ridiculous enough nickname, the people behind the over-the-top TLC "reality" show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo have added a Honey Boo Boo Nickname Generator to the show's Facebook page.
The show has also spawned T-shirts, ringtones and other assorted merchandise.
Alana Thompson, aka Honey Boo Boo, could have been Adorable Toots, Apple Teeghhan or Ava Tony, according to the nickname generator. She chose Honey Boo Boo, however, and appears willing to share it because with the right amount of luck and time, it can be reproduced.
The method behind the madness is unsurprisingly simple. Based on the initials of the name entered, a nickname is chosen from a series of words ranging from the innocuous to the nonsensical. Should you not like your Honey Boo Boo nickname (BLASPHEMY!!), just put your name or initials in the field again until it meets your standards, which should have been disregarded before starting the exercise.
You can become Radiance Goober, Cuckoo Vroom, Yippie Lacie or Mama Wonderful with the proper combination of initials and misfortune.
If you've never seen Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, the show centers around Thompson, 6, and her wacky redneck family – "Mama June," "Sugar Bear," "Pumpkin," "Chubbs" and "Chickadee" - who live in central Georgia. She was previously featured on TLC's Toddlers and Tiaras where her personality and penchant for catchphrases earned her a spinoff.
Imagine if the rest of the entertainment world jumped on board. Who would not have loved Teacup Hayden in his Oscar-winning performance in the title role of Fairy Goo Goo?
That's Forrest Gump, if you couldn't tell. It was set in Alabama and prominently featured "Mama," "Bubba" and a guy with no legs.
Forrest Gump, however, was classy.
