This is a Morning Joe disclosure…I’m on vacation at Disney World this week and you’re not. Or, maybe you are and if so, what the fuck are you doing reading my blog. Go get in line for Peter Pan’s Flight, cause it’s looooooong. This blog was pre-scheduled.
The other night, Ross and I were watching Bad Moms (which is hysterical, btw, and you should watch it). Ross had never seen it before and was cackling out loud which made me laugh even harder. Anyway, at the end, Christina Applegate and Mila Kunis are both running for PTA president. This is an amazing 9 minutes. Try not to laugh out loud at your desks and keep the sound down (there are quite a few f-bombs).
So, here’s the thing. This is basically our 2016 election in a nutshell. A person standing up there saying that they are just as fucked up as you. And instead of us saying, maybe having someone who didn’t have their shit together in control is a bad idea, we dove in head first and gave ourselves a concussion.
During the course of Mila Kunis’s speech, one lady stands up and says her kids hadn’t bathed in 3 weeks. Another that she has a margarita for breakfast. A third that she drugs her kids with Benedryl to watch TV uninterrupted. While this may be funny because, you know, it’s a fucking movie. This is not okay in real life. It’s funny because it’s over the top. If this shit went down in real life, someone would be calling child and family services.
So there you have it. Most of life’s pressing issues can be explained by Bad Moms. I stand by this flick. #You’reWelcome
