Honey Boo Boo
Made From 25 Pounds of Trash

It took artist Jason Mecier 50 hours to recreate the cringeworthy human travesty that is the Honey Boo Boo show’s pepped-up reality starlet using “two cans of hair spray, three tiaras, make-up, mascara, fake eyelashes, coupons, sketti, butter, ten cheese balls, two Red Bulls, one Mountain Dew, a McDonald’s chicken nugget, a pink Snuggy box, an empty toilet paper roll, one cabbage patch doll and a jar of pigs’ feet.”

Unlike the Snoop Dogg o’ weed and Whitney Houston o’ pills and pills and pills, this latest pop culture collage offers a grand variety, inadvertently becoming something of a flattened Cornucopia horn of American consumer culture’s worst totems.
