Moderator note:

Dan: None of this applies to the good Karens of Cyburbia. :)

Moderator note:

Maister: yes, what Dan said. This is all in good fun, hence the thread title.


No wonder Karen is so grumpy.

Even in a textbook, she gets a bob.

A sense of obligation compels us to complete that assignment.

3. She used to exercise patience and forbearance, but now asks to see the manager immediately.

Moderator note:

split from NUMTOTS. It's time we had a general let's make sport of the 'Karens' of the world thread.

This Karen hates pedestrians, for some reason. Maybe she thinks sidewalks are decorative or something.


I don't see curb cuts, so it's probably an alley city or town in the Great Lakes region or Midwest.

Karen's calendars. Get them now and avoid the rush.

I've met people like that who believe they own the sidewalk and you should never walk on their sidewalk. Granted the lady was in Germany and everyone knew she was nuts, but at least she did sweep the sidewalk daily before us horrible kids walked on it to get to the bus stop.

Or you could get a Karen calendar.

(There's a growing ethnic Karen community in Buffalo.)

Or you could have a different pithy inspirational quote every month. ๐““๐“ช๐“ท๐“ฌ๐“ฎ ๐“ช๐“ผ ๐“ฒ๐“ฏ ๐“ท๐“ธ๐“ซ๐“ธ๐“ญ๐”‚'๐“ผ ๐”€๐“ช๐“ฝ๐“ฌ๐“ฑ๐“ฒ๐“ท๐“ฐ!

Lady in the bottom right looks very uncomfortable. Like this creepy dude is forcing me to pretend to be his wife level uncomfortable.

When it's time for Karen to head off to that four bedroom, three and a half bathroom center hall colonial on a cul-de-sac in a good school district in the sky. That, or bury one of her unvaccinated kids.

So, I was just at HomeGoods Don't ask why.

Anyhow, the place was filled with Karen types. One thing they had in common - they were all rocking HUGE engagement rings. Normally, I don't notice rings, but there were so many big-ass rings that it was hard not to see.

Karens are 65.3% more likely to dye their hair than others.

Karen cosplay #2. The "love" and "laugh" need to be flipped, though.

This article was in my fair comunity's newspaper

What is a VSCO girl? OK, boomer. A parents' dictionary to teen slang words, sksksksksk

In the list of words was this -

Poor Karen. She's right up there with Felicia.
A "Karen" is typically used to refer to an entitled mom, who can be a bit irritating with her frequent requests to "talk to the manager."
She may also have a giant bob haircut and drive a Volvo.

Some cool attention to detail in that pic. I love the Chili's box, the New Balance shoes on the guy's side.

We had a woman who put that plastic chain stuff across the public sidewalk on her lot lines. Didn't like the kids going on them or the sidewalk plow plowing snow onto "her" lawn. She went a bit nuts with that kind of stuff after her husband died. That's an interesting bit on the "Karen" theme btw- the proportion of them whose crazypants sense of entitlement is somehow mitigated by a spouse, but when they get by themselves or in a pack suddenly the little bumps n the road the spouse used to smooth over become "speak to the manager" moments.

Stumbled across a FB page called "DAMNIT KAREN" and of course many participants are so named.

Yesterday was a post: How many real Karens are here who is nothing like a "Karen" lol. But like me have a little raging inner Karen who wants to scream "FUCK IT!!! BRING ME THE MANAGER!!!" LOL ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

I put up this genuine screenshot.

From the Google Streetview thread:

It appears that every single woman in that town goes to Karen's Klassic Kuts for all of their salon needs.
Not photoshopped.
