Today’s the day. Who will you choose to represent you: Regina George or Cady Heron?
OK, so obviously neither of the fictional Mean Girls characters are on the ballot, but that didn’t stop social media from invoking the 2004 cult classic and cracking jokes about Rachel McAdams and Lindsay Lohan’s respective characters.
In a nod to the film — which sees McAdams (George) and Lohan (Heron) vying for the title of Spring Fling Queen and students declaring their twisted allegiances (“I'm gonna vote for Regina George because she got hit by that bus." "I'm voting for Cady Heron because she pushed her.") — Mean Girls fans have re-sparked the iconic rivalry, bringing levity to the nail-biter that is Election Day.
