Fact: Honey Boo’s Boo’s Mom is Better at Finances than Congress

Via MSN Money:
Seven-year-old Alana Thompson — you know, Honey Boo Boo — is fortunate to have a financially savvy mom who has set up trust funds for each of her four girls and her infant granddaughter. June Shannon told TMZ that most of the money earned from each episode of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” is deposited by TLC in equal portions into the accounts. The girls can’t get at the money until they turn 21, unless they need it for education or have a medical emergency, TMZ says. The other daughters are 18, 15 and 12. . .

You gotta be kidding me. Congress can't figure out what to do, but at least Honey Boo Boo and her siblings will be taken care of. - Greg Pollowitz
