As much as we Felicias of the world would like to believe our name became popular from the dancing penguins in Mary Poppins, it didn’t.
The phrase gained notoriety from the 1995 film, Friday, in which Ice Cube’s annoying neighbor is named Felisha. We’ve compiled a list of other names that are more deserving of being dissed.
1. Regina George, Mean Girls
I mean, she did wear sweatpants that one Monday, soooo…
2. Cruella DeVille, 101 Dalmatians
“WHATEVER YOU SAY, CRUELLA.” - LiLo in The Parent Trap
3. John Travolta
I have still not forgiven him for mispronouncing Idina Menzel’s name at the Oscars.
4. Honey Boo Boo, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo
Somehow, I think HBB would turn the phrase into a badge of honor.
5. D.W., Arthur
I think D.W. is cool with anything, just don’t insult Mary Moo Cow.
6. Voldemort, Harry Potter
Like “Avada Kedavra” but with your words.
7. Jan Brady, The Brady Bunch
Just attribute it to Middle Child Syndrome.
8. Abby Lee Miller, Dance Moms
Probably wouldn’t even phase her.
9. Shawanna, Clueless
That little polyester braid-wearin’, jeepin’ hussy.
12. Mama Pope, Scandal
Mama Pope says Olivia ain’t nothing but the help, but I say Mama Pope ain’t nothing but trouble.
13. Frizz McGuire, Lizzie McGuire
Disrespecting parents since 2001.
Use the name of whoever you are talking to; a sort of “pay-it-forward” system so the person you are talking to can understand the hurt feelings it can cause.
There’s a reason there is no broccoli character in Veggie Tales.
16. Chili’s Chocolate Molten Lava Cake
SO delicious, yet SO unhealthy.
18. Tiffany, America’s Next Top Model
Tyra already done told her to be quiet, might as well finish the job with a “bye”.
19. Michelle Williams from the singing group Destiny’s Child.
She should be used to all of the jokes by this point.
20. Rebecca Black
Payback for the dark time in our lives that she is responsible for.
21. Smelly Cat, Friends
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat, it’s not your fault.
