And in Other News: Honey Boo Boo Got a Pet Chicken

Most of the news today is election related, but we'd hate for that to mean that you weren't up to date on the life of Alana Thompson, a.k.a. Honey Boo Boo. So: you'll be happy to hear that after the devastating loss of her pet pig, Glitzy, Thompson has a new furry (or, actually, feathered) friend -- a chicken named Nugget. Thompson's mother, June Shannon, posted a picture of the little guy on Facebook yesterday. She writes:

meet Alanas new pet NUGGET her pet chicken yes I said chicken her and nugget have became very attached this weekend and it in the house but has a outside house too but alana refuses to let her sleep outside lol she she sleeps inside at night in her inside cage

So while you're out there casting your vote, just know that back in Georgia (where Thompson lives), animals are being cared for properly and with love.
