Here's the Brilliant Absurdity of 'Honey Boo Boo' Explained in 10 GIFs

Season 2 debuted with a "Watch 'n Sniff" episode. If you missed the Cup-a-Fart (be thankful), here's a recap of the premiere

It wasn't long ago that our jaws first dropped at the one-of-kind pageant princess Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson on TLC's Toddlers & Tiaras. Last night, Season 2 of her spin-off series, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, following the misadventures of her family in McIntryre, Ga.,  premiered. And it’s nice to see that even with fame and fortune, the family hasn’t changed much.

Case in point: The premiere, which revealed Honey Boo Boo's signature wrestling move, the Cup-a-Fart. The Cup-a-Fart consists of passing gas into your hand (which is carefully folded into a cup-like position) and scooping that freshly prepared weapon into your opponent's face. Luckily, the Cup-a-Fart was not part of the episode's "Watch 'n Sniff" stunt, during which viewers at home used scratch 'n' sniff cards when prompted to "participate" in scenes throughout the episode.

Missed the fun? Here's a recap of the premiere in 10 GIFs -- smells of Mama June and Sugar Bear's home (thankfully? woefully?) not included.
