Climate Change Has Officially Ruined "Miss Congeniality"

April 25 is no longer the perfect date.

Posted on

It's been 17 years since Miss Congeniality came out [insert meltdown about being old here], but the Internet is still obsessed with Miss Rhode Island's famous description of her perfect date:

(It's funny because they meant date like "romantic outing" and she thought they meant date like "calendar day" lololol.)

According to Heather, April 25 is *supposed* to be light jacket weather. Except it's NOT anymore.

The Miss Congeniality joke about April 25th was before climate change fucked the seasons - now you do need more than a light jacket

Time Magazine talked to meteorologist Bernadette Woods Placky about whether or not Miss Rhode Island's date can still hold up, and here's what she said:

"Everything is warming overall more quickly across the country. Spring days are coming much earlier. Yes, that balance for that light jacket still absolutely exists. What’s changing is when it’s happening on the calendar. In February people had those light jackets on and no jackets at all."

Climate change aside, this year Miss Congeniality fans have been experiencing weather that has prevented them from rocking their light jackets like Heather would have wanted. Some were TOO COLD:

April 25: "not too hot, not too cold. All you need is a light jacket". Not this year, Miss Congeniality, not this y… https://t.co/6KwBArOIMS

Actually, it's April 25 and it's 50° with rain so i'd say forgo the light jacket and roll with your north face folk… https://t.co/qkE8hhyicl

Some were TOO HOT:

I wore a light jacket today and I've already worked up a sweat walking 2 blocks. Miss Rhode Island is a liar !!

It will be 90 in SA today, if you are wearing a light jacket you are weird. https://t.co/p7WxYC0eBy

But some true fans DGAF and rocked a light jacket against all odds:

Weather: rainy, windy, no sun at all- Me: Sorry, but it's April 25th. *Puts on a light jacket* #April25th #misscongeniality

Bish it's freezing out there. Cold and rainy and windy and I have a light jacket on so I know. https://t.co/TbEAuTLn0T
