We’re temporarily forgoing our Here Comes Honey Boo Boo boycott to bring you a breaking story: Mama Honey Boo Boo’s granddaughter, Kaitlyn, whose mother is 18-year-old high school senior Anna, was born with an extra thumb and is already drinking Mountain Dew, surprisingly not straight from her mom’s breasts.
Tabloid reports have claimed that outspoken matriarch “Mama” June has mocked her 5-week-old granddaughter Kaitlyn, who was born with four fingers and two thumbs on the right hand. Not true, June, 33, says of the reports. “We have embraced [the abnormality]. It makes Kaitlyn more special to us.”
The baby, whose mom is June’s 18-year-old daughter Anna, was born on July 26 weighing 6 lbs., 2 oz. June, herself a teen mom who was just 15 when she had Anna, has been helping to care for Kaitlyn while Anna prepares to finish her senior year of high school in the family’s hometown of McIntyre, Ga.

I’ve never understood the “extra special” comment. Does that mean everyone who has a “normal” amount of fingers is less important than someone with an extra appendage? Does that mean WE’RE the freaks? Anyway, Kaitlyn having three thumbs isn’t out of the ordinary (1 out of every 500 babies has an extra digit), but the Mountain Dew thing, well, I’m no doctor, but I’m going to GUESS that a month-old baby ingesting a sugary, carbonated liquid that turns mice into jelly is doing more harm than good. It’s no crab juice, that’s for sure. On the plus side, at least it’s not Diet Mountain Dew. That stuff with turn your body into a toxic waste spill-site
