Expand your vocabulary


The beautiful and vivacious JJ directed me to one of my new favorite blogs, Girl Gone Child. You know a blog's going to be good when the categories alone (Vaginas; Hipsters and Douchebags) make you laugh (what can I say, I have the sense of humor of a thirteen year old boy). Here's an excerpt from their ever so astute glossary:

Cheri

N. A haggard, single mother with tattoos.

Back in the day, Cheri was HOT – smoking hot. But she’s never been very bright. She pursued a career as music video dancer and got caught up with a Jake* who convinced her to keep the baby, then bailed once he realized that babies cry a lot. Cheri always relied on her looks to get by, but she doesn’t look that great anymore, and the tribal arm tattoo is starting to fade. Thank god for Gunnar (Cheri’s 4-year-old son). He’s what keeps her going to her job at the tanning salon five days a week.
Usage:
“I feel sorry for that kid’s mom. She must be a Cheri.”
You'll have to go to the site to find out what a Jake is. Happy reading.

Hey Lady,

Thank you for mentioning girlgonechild.com. We're so glad you have become a fan. I love the picture of PA - can you email it to me? I want to use it on our site.

Have a great weekend!

I LOVE that her dress has a "Chanel" logo on it.

wow, i went to school with a girl who's mom was a cheri and i think she wound up with hepatitis too!

Leah, I KNOW! Had to pass it along; I don't want to be the only one chained to the computer.
Anon, do you think that dress was one of Coco's original designs? I'm surprised we never saw Jackie O. wearing it.
Erin, I think you're onto something! A pattern is emerging....

I think it would have been helpful if, instead of the "Chanel" logo, the dress had had a sign saying "Tits" with an arrow pointing up.

SGM said...

Anon, that would be too obvious. Pam is all about being subtle, haven't you noticed?

Pamela Anderson is what you'd get if you bred Brigitte Bardot and a cockroach.
