mean girls box

 

Ten years ago today, the dark comedy imagined by comedian Tina Fey known as "Mean Girls," hit theaters.

Starring Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert and an array of Fey's "Saturday Night Live" comrades-- the filmed grossed $24 million in its opening weekend but cemented itself as an internet phenomenon in the prior the years. From Tumblr to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram all types of images and gifs were created to re-live priceless moments from the film.

"It's the quintessential high school teen movie for the current generation, just like how Clueless and Carrie were for previous generations," Emily Huh, director of business development for Know Your Meme told Wired. "But the internet wasn't as popular then, so we didn't have the spread of the memes and GIFs that came out of those older movies."

In addition to it reflecting the ever-present dog-eat-dog nature of high school, the film also created catch phrases that we still use today.

On the next pages you'll find 15 Life Lessons from "Mean Girls" in the form of memes. Enjoy!
