Honey Boo Boo thinks her larger than life family is fat, but her daddy, Sugar Bear, disagrees, insisting they are just "pleasingly plump!"

However, Sugar Bear does think they are all "pigs" as evidenced in a video clip of the upcoming episode of the hit TLC show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, obtained by

In the sneak peek the family goes out to a sit-down dinner at the request of Sugar Bear and the barbeque joint is decorated with pigs, which reminds little Honey Boo Boo, AKA Alana Thompson, of her super cute pet swine she just had to give away.

"I miss Glitzy," Alana says. "Oh my God, I see pigs everywhere!" Prompting Sugar Bear to chime in with "We’re pigs!"

Her mama June Shannon explains that because Sugar Bear works seven days a week he likes to eat dinner as a family together but he doesn't really show his emotions.

"My family is very important to me, I love them," he twangs about his brood.

Honey Boo Boo goes a little overboard ordering three types of meat, and she declares, "My family just loves to eat."

June tries to talk her out of ordering the huge platter, but she isn't deterred. "I don’t think she’s going to eat all this, but she wants it," June says.

Meanwhile, Honey Boo Boo mocks her family's eating habits.

"We’re fat," she says while Sugar Bear tries to deny her claims.

"We’re not fat, we’re pleasingly plump," he says and the entire family corrects his grammar.

"It’s pleasantly!"

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo airs on Wednesdays 10/9 on TLC.
