Being that today is Wednesday, April 30, I decided it was only appropriate to write about the Mean Girls 10 year anniversary. 10 years ago today, the greatest movie of my generation came out. Ah Mean Girls, the movie that made many young girls fear that wonderful concept that is high school. Thee movie covered all the “basic” stereotypical high cliques. There were the freshman, ROTC, preps, JV jocks, asian nerds, cool asians, varsity jocks, unfriendly black hotties, girls who eat their feelings, girls who don’t eat anything, desperate wannabes, burnouts, sexually active band geeks, the greatest people you will ever meet, and the worst, beware of the plastics. The movie is all about the hot guy, the popular friends, and all the back stabbing and lying that most girls in high school love to consume themselves with. When Cady Heron, played by Lindsey Lohan, went from being the weird, home-schooled white girl from Africa, to one of the “hot plastics” quickly after her arrival at North Shore High School, young girls, or at least the ones I knew, started to assume the only way to survive high was to be popular.

The movie has become a “cult classic” and is one of the most popular movies to this day. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t seen Mean Girls. Literally, no one. I know guys who’ve seen the wonderful movie more times than some girls have. It’s just one of those movies that became a “must-see” especially with the movies trending lingo and hilarious movie lines that have become oh so widely known. Between “so fetch”, “you can’t sit with us”, “your moms chest hair”, “boo you whore”, “on Wednesday’s we wear pink”, “its October 3rd”, “don’t have sex, because you will get pregnant and die”, and most of all “she doesn’t even go here”, which I’ve only heard more since I’ve been in college ironically enough the movie has evidently made quite an impact on girls through the last 10 years. I mean, October 3rd has actually become a Mean Girls holiday for most people – as well as wearing pink on Wednesdays. Clearly, the Mean Girls and its lingo are going to be around for a while, its definitely one for the books that’s for sure.

I tip my hat to you, Mark Water, no one will ever forget this movie. And if they do, all I will have to say is…The 10 Best Mean Girls Quotes To Use In Day-To-Day Life
