‘Karen’ On Steriods

July 24, 2021

COVID and the T-Rump is one horrifying combo. Direct off-shoot of the vile, nastiness of the T-Rump persona is the in-your-face cruelty genre, a ‘Karen’ — ‘Wikipedia: Karen is a pejorative term for a woman seeming to be entitled or demanding beyond the scope of what is normal. The term also refers to memes depicting White women who use their privilege to demand their own way.

Although the ‘Karen’ motif pre-dates the T-Rump (2014), the idiom of self-righteous whine seems to dwell within the personality curves of the MAGA hatters. T-Rump and his followers love them some victimhood.

I adore Sarah Cooper. I haven’t yet seen her new Netflix show, “Everything’s Fine,” but do look forward to it. (Don’t have Netflix on my iPad, just Amazon Prime).

Anyway, the following clip is amazing — hilarious in a weird-ass, real-life, horror-funny type of way. Add the wondrous Jane Lynch and the shit gets deep (h/t tweet tengrain to h/t Fair and Unbalanced):

And for another jolt of insane, droll, contemporary wit  one of Cooper’s classic bits — once again, a horror funny:

“And then I said, supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do, either through the skin or some other way, and I think I said, you’re gonna test that too … you’re going to have to use medical doctors…”
