Analysis on the lede in “South Park’ takes on Honey Boo Boo: Funniest celebrity takedown?”

The article I chose was about the toddler sensation Honey Boo Boo. The lede is

“Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of “South Park,” aren’t afraid of taking on some big celebrity targets, and in this latest episode they’ve gone after the most talked-about show on TV: “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.””

I found this to be a good lede because if you didn’t know what the show was or who Honey Boo Boo was they would be interested in reading more. In the one sentence opener you get a lot of information, but not enough, so it makes you want to keep reading. One thing though that I didn’t like is, they called Honey Boo Boo and big time celebrity. In my eyes, she is not one in the least bit because she is merely a toddler.
