Um, Why Did Kristen Chenoweth Make Fun Of Honey Boo Boo At The ACAs?

By  | 

You know what I want to leave behind in 2012? Honey Boo Boo jokes. I think they're stale and they're stupid and they're rarely done right. Take Kristen Chenoweth at the 2012 American Country Awards. She changed outfits every two seconds because I guess that's what you do when you're a Broadway star hosting a country music awards show.

In the middle of the show she came out dressed up as Honey Boo Boo. Except she wore the dress Honey Boo Boo wore way before she starred on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

You know, the one that she wore when she and her mother dressed up for the Anderson Cooper show back in February. That's seven months before her show premiered and she became one of the most popular human beings in America.

To add insult to unoriginal joke injury, she made a joke about drinking go-go juice. Really? What is this? An episode of Toddlers & Tiaras? I'm all for making smart jokes about pop culture figures, but if you're going to go after a seven-year-old you better be saying something incredibly smart and incredibly funny. Especially a seven-year-old who so many people have joked about endlessly in the past few months.

I usually really like Kristen Chenoweth, but this joke totally fell flat.
