On last night's Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Thanksgiving special (yeah, I have no idea why they did that with the scheduling — I guess this show takes months to finesse?), Mama June introduced the world to the concept of a "multi-meal." A "multi-meal" is what happens when you "just like throw whatever you have available in the cabinets in a bowl."

What is Honey Boo Boo, if not America's greatest public intellectual? And what is Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, if not an audiovisual genealogy of continental philosophy?
