It’s October 3, THG readers. You know what that means.

Oh, you don’t? Well, that’s okay. We’re here to tell you:

Mean Girls fans the world over recall that this is the day when Aaron Samuels and Cady Heron took a huge step forward in their fictional relationship!

As a result, many years later, Mean Girls Day was born!!

Doesn’t get better than that on a slow news day, does it?!

Eh, it probably does, honestly, but whatever, here we are.

In any event, what can you do to commemorate this third day of the tenth month of the two thousand and sixteenth year A.D.?

Many things. Useless, but entertaining things nonetheless.

For one, you can check out the Mean Girls cast then and now, to see whose lives are fetch (so to speak) and whose just aren’t happening.

MASSIVE spoiler alert you will never, ever see coming:

Lindsay Lohan has seen better days. Slash decades.

Seriously, Mean Girls is like a time capsule of a bygone era when LiLo was fresh-faced, talented, hilarious and not 30 going on 50.

Not to go all Regina George on you, but check it out:

You can throw on your finest jeans and track pants, because some fugly skank is sabotaging your diet. You can still sit with us, no worries.

Or you could just watch the Tina Fey-Lindsay Lohan classic for the 417th time and see if your knowledge of Mean Girls quotes is still on point.

It’s hard to see how they wouldn’t be, honestly.

After all, this film has reached the rarefied air where where people overuse its material in everyday speech to an almost annoying degree.

That’s their problem, though. Not Mean Girls‘ problem. Hate the game (read: the general public), not the movie that produced such gems as:

“I can’t go out. I’m sick.” / “Boo! You whore!”

“She doesn’t even go here!”

“I’m not like a regular mom. I’m a cool mom.”

“One time I saw Cady Heron wearing army pants and flip flops. So I bought army pants and flip flops.”

“I’m sorry that people are so jealous of me. But I can’t help it that I’m popular.”

“Is butter a carb?”

“That’s why her hair is so big. It’s full of secrets.”

SUCH a Good Friend

“Get in, loser. We’re going shopping!”

“Whatever. I’m getting cheese fries.”

“I can’t go to Taco Bell, I’m on an all-carb diet! God, Karen! You’re so stupid!”

“Oh my god, Danny Devito! I love your work!”

“We only carry sizes 1, 3 and 5. You could try Sears.”

“On Wednesdays we wear pink!”

“That’s so fetch!”

“Irregardless! Ex-boyfriends are just off limits to friends. I mean, that’s just like, the rules of feminism!”

“If you’re from Africa, then why are you white?”

“Oh my god, Karen! You can’t just ask people why they’re white!”

“‘Made out with a hot dog’? Oh my god! That was one time!”

“Four for you, Glenn Coco! You go, Glenn Coco!”

“Don’t have sex. You will get pregnant and die.”
