I know it’s not a cat. But come on, it’s Mean Girls. Isn’t Mean Girls so culturally relevant? It is literally the best movie ever made and applies to every situation. Even as a twenty year old man, I sometimes spend Friday nights watching this movie huddled underneath my blankets as I stuff myself with pints of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream wondering how Regina George could be so cruel.

There we go. That seems like a good enough number. It is amazing how a numbered list and a very biased liberal perspective can make a such a divisive issue seem so simple!

(Andres Gonzalez is a columnist for the Pennsylvania Punch Bowl. He clearly did not make any of the images on this list; like most people with internet access, he knows how to use the search features of Reddit, Tumblr, and Imgur. He does not get paid for making stupid lists and obvious click-bait. He hopes no one sues for copyright infringement.)
