So, why are southern beauty queens ineligible to compete? Because if you live below the Mason-Dixon Line there's a very good chance you know what this shirt refers to and, if you know what this shirt refers to, you likely have a strong guess as to the wearer of this fine garment.
If that is the case, well, there's an even stronger likelihood that this person lives in the house right next to y'all, and we say that out of love.
Come on, we've given you more than enough hints—can you guess which child beauty queen this is?
It's Alana Thompson!
Oh, let's not even bother with real names. It's Honey Boo Boo, or Honey Boo Boo Child, depending on your preferences. And she's wearing a tee advertising Piggly Wiggly, the unofficial grocery chain of the Confederacy. (That's what the civil war was really about, you know, whether Food Lion or Piggly Wiggly carried better corn meal. And it's Food Lion, by the way. House of Autry for the win.)
So, what was Honey Boo Boo Child up to? Does it matter? She's a cute kid with a TV show. What do you want from us?
