Tired of dealing with body-shaming dummies on the internet? Here's a recipe for "sticking it to the haters" this Memorial Day weekend, beginning with your ingredients:
2. A career in the public eye
3. A cute suit!
4. A body, preferably your own
5. A body of water (optional)
Combine all, post on your preferred social platform, and burn some trolls. This is a tried-and-true method by one Amy Schumer. I'm going to get some heat for this, but it's better than grandma's recipe tbh.
I meant to write "good morning trolls!" I hope you find some joy in your lives today in a human interaction and not just in writing unkind things to a stranger you've never met who triggers something in you that makes you feel powerless and alone. This is how I look. I feel happy. I think I look strong and healthy and also like miss trunchbull from Matilda. Kisses!
