Mean Girls 10 Year Anniversary: 5 Lessons We Learned From The Movie
Raise your hand if you have been personally victimized by Regina George? Crazy thing is, that even those who were born after the famous size 5 blonde stalked the halls of her Illinois high school can raise their hands to that line. Mean Girls has had John Hughes-esque effect, meaning that it has the sort of staying power that will not only effect the generation with which it coincided, but also several generations after. There are certainly lessons to be learned from the film. Here are a few that we will make sure to pass on to our future generations who (gasp!) may never have the chance to watch the movie.
Not all home schooled kids are freaks, but most are:
Cady may have been a home schooled jungle freak but she managed to rise to become the Queen Bee of her school. Knowing this, we think it is safe to say that not all home schooled kids should be ruled out on principal. However, on the other hand, there are also those who believe that “on the third day, God created the dinosaurs, and the homosexuals”. So that’s something to keep in mind.
Bitches never prosper but they do get toted around by a group of super buff men: Regina George was a bitch for sure, but she is the queen of making it work in her favor. Her bitchiness won her two adoring young men, a trio of (sort of) loyal followers and a place among some of the most fierce and ferocious high school females in existence.
Holes in your shirt can be a fashion statement:
Regina George taught us that if your shirt has transformed into a piece of garbage, you can still rock it. All you need is confidence, extreme popularity and a nice set of tits.
A Mathlete can be a Spring Fling Queen:
Cady Heron took the heat for the burn book, lost her boyfriend, was accused of attempted murder, joined the mathletes and still got voted Spring Fling Queen. Um, inspiration much?
If there is someone you don’t like, just push them in front of a bus: Just kidding, you should just wait until they happen to walk in front of a bus considering that this seems to happen all the time anyway.
