13 years ago, Mean Girls invited us to sit with them. Since then, “The Plastics” have shaped our visions of cliques for the years to come. While Regina George may have been Queen Bee, Karen’s slightly racist questions and weather-predicting breasts stole the show. Hopefully by now she knows how to spell “orange” and has teamed up with Gretchen to make “fetch” finally happen.
1. At Zag Games
It’s Saturday night, the Zags have scored 10 three-pointers, the fans are going wild. Who doesn’t want to use that free Doritos Locos Tacos coupon at Taco Bell?
2. Whenever Sports Are Involved
First off, how many of you would rather be carried like Regina in the background? It happens, sometimes we overestimate the arc of the ball and speed (I really don’t know what I’m talking about) and lack the ability to catch the ball. It’s okay Karen, we know, sports can be hard. Too bad we don’t all look this good when we miss the ball.
3. When We Discover Something Special About Ourselves
Whether you think you can see dead people or predict the weather, we all think there’s something special about us that comes naturally like smell and sight. Our special abilities might not be having a body part that tells us when it’s already raining and Karen may have forgotten that she already has all five of her common senses, but hey, everyone makes mistakes! T God she has ESPN.
4. During Halloween
To quote fellow mean girl Cady Heron, “In the real world, Halloween is when kids dress up in costumes and beg for candy. In Girl World, Halloween is the one day a year when a girl can dress up like a total slut and no other girls can say anything else about it.” A short dress with a pair of animal ears is mostly every girl’s last-minute halloween costume in college; it’s cheap, sure to catch anyone’s eye, and Plastic approved.
5. When You Don’t Want To Hang Out With Someone
After a week filled with three tests, an essay, two quizzes, and a group project, sometimes quiet time is all you really want. Rather than telling your friends you just want a chill night or that you don’t want to hang out in general, the fake cough works every time. Who really wants to hang out with someone who caught the CM plague?
6. Whenever “Hidden Talents” Are Brought Up
Despite being able to make any situation awkward, I lack in the special talent department. But those of you that are double-jointed, have an incredible singing voice, or the like, will never pass up a chance to show off a not-so-hidden talent.
