One of the perks of teaching high school is that kids know what’s funny. And they tell you. And you watch whatever they tell you. And they laugh.
One of my awesome seniors (hi, Lloyd!) let me borrow Mean Girls because I hadn’t seen it before. I was a bit skeptical, mainly because it stars Lindsay Lohan, and, well, need I say more? But when the opening credits started and I saw “a Lorne Michaels production,” I was intrigued. Then I saw Tina Fey, Tim Meadows, Ana Gasteyer, and the guy who plays the janitor on Scrubs, and I knew I was in good shape. It was awesome and funny.
Another senior had made an It’s Always Sunny reference in class that I hadn’t recognized, and he said, “You have to watch that episode! It’s so funny!” Joey randomly purchased Season 7 yesterday, so I watched that episode- Chardee and MacDennis: The Game of Games. The reference Drew made in class was that someone would have to eat a cake, but one ingredient at a time. It was indeed so funny, and might be my new favorite episode. It’s tough to top the Nightman musical episode, or the intervention episode, or the World Series Defense episode, but this one is up there for sure.
