Jodie Foster isn't Honey Boo Boo, but she might like the top 15 lines from Sunday's episode

While many of you watched the Golden Globes Sunday night, I opted for a less glamorous corner of pop culture: a place where butter and sugar make everything better.

I'm talking about the Thanksgiving-themed episode of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."

It marked the debut of the McIntyre, Ga., clan's new pet: a chicken named Nugget. Speaking of animals, Mama June cooked a turkey named Billy Bob for Thanksgiving dinner. And even though Pumpkin suffered a detached retina from her unfortunate key accident, she recovered in time to enjoy a Thanksgiving food fight.

Interestingly enough, there was at least one Honey Boo Boo reference during the Golden Globes. While accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement, Jodie Foster said, "I am not Honey Boo Boo Child."

That's good. We don't need more than one. Here are the top 15 lines from Sunday's Thanksgiving episode:
