An article in today’s Toronto Star covering a the author of Girl Politics: Friends, Cliques and Really Mean Chicks, from the Zonderkidz branch of Christian publisher Zondervan, gave some advice about mean girls, including this gem:
Q: Using the Bible as a guide to deal with really mean chicks, isn’t that a stretch?
A: Not at all. The Bible is a marvellous tool for dealing with relationships. Jesus was constantly bullied by the Pharisees, who were basically a clique.
I will never look at the Pharisees in the same way again. From now on, I’m going to picture them as hot schoolgirls, saying things like:
- “Jedediah, all that milk and honey will go straight to your thighs. It’s all carbs!”
- “I’m having a party tonight and you are soooo not invited, Obadiah.”
- “Zachariah, why are you being such a beeyotch?”
