Oh Brittany, we had such high hopes for you.  You were Tai; we quote you at least once a week.  You were Luanne Platter (someone I also quote at least once a week).  And as far as bad B movies go, The Ramen Girl was actually kind of awesome (and available on instant Netflix).

Don’t worry. We’re here to do it for you. Feministdonut and SLB: spending their time frivolously so you don’t have to.

Upon seeing Clueless “star” Brittany Murphy on today, we traveled down the following road, looking for the poor girl’s answer to recovery:

SLB: Okay, see… Brittany Murphy? That’s a problem.

Feministdonut: Wow. She looks really baaaaad.
