Martin Short Cracks That Palins Are Like the Honey Boo Boo Family

Media Research CenterAppearing as a guest on Wednesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC, comedian Martin Short took a shot at Sarah Palin as he compared her family to the family of the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo show on TLC. After making fun of host Jimmy Kimmel for supposedly not doing preparation for his show, Short jabbed Kimmel as the "Honey Boo Boo of late night."

He soon brought up the Palin family and made a comparison. Below is the exchange from the Wednesday, May 14, Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC:

MARTIN SHORT: You're the Honey Boo Boo of late night.

JIMMY KIMMEL: Thank you very much. I've been eating a lot of Cheese Balls to prepare.

SHORT: No, I love Honey Boo, I just love, the only thing-

KIMMEL: Do you really?


KIMMEL: The difference between her family and the Palins is teeth, and that's it.
