If you're anything like me, you're constantly overhearing friends, family and complete strangers offering hilarious one-liners and blunders about the wide world of pop culture. Here's a place to share your awesome personal stories!
I finally convinced my mom to read all of the Twilight books, and now she's on to the movies. Judging from this IM convo, the saga wasn't as memorable for her as it was for millions of teenage girls...
Mom: I've got full moon on netflix too lol got to watch that before dad gets home Me: whats full mooon Mom: new moon whatever the vampire movie
The momz and I share a mutual love for Survivor, particularly the current Heroes vs. Villains season. Naturally, I had to send her this link, and I got an eyeful in return.
Her IMs read : "Exactly right also having an all villian team is like watching animals that eat their young. it's been actually exciting so much more fun than watching lame brains get drunk. like Jersey shore." Priceless.
So, the last time I was home my mom was telling me about the MTV series Teen Mom and how she was addicted. She had a justification, too: she figured it was good because Morgan Freeman produced it, and did I know that? I didn't, and I was very impressed.
After watching an entire soul-sucking hour, the credits rolled and I did indeed see Morgan Freeman's name: Morgan J. Freeman. Wah wah.
As a card-carrying pop culture aficionado, it's hard not to scoff when you hear your clueless friends stumble all over the names of your favorite celebs. The name of the group takes inspiration from a friend, who's mom is constantly referring to real-life Edward Cullen as "Robert Patterson." Yes, she's not the only one who's done it, and it's just the tip of the iceberg. That's just one side of it though — sometimes my loved ones maket hilarious observations on pop culture that are just too good not to share.
