Mindy: "What?"

BuzzFeed: It's when someone gets invited to prom in an elaborate way.

Mindy: Oh, I hate this. No. I love young people, but they should not be spending their time doing that. That's a huge waste of time. I can't condone that.

11. Twitter feuds

Mindy: I really like ones where it's just incredibly one-sided. When just one Twitter personality just decides to rail against a famous person. And it's just relentless. And it's just such a poor use of time. And it makes you think, What is that person doing?


22. #EggplantFriday

Mindy: What's that?

BuzzFeed: It's when people use the eggplant as a symbol for the penis, and it's basically just an excuse to post guys' bulges on Instagram.

Mindy: OK, I'm slightly more into it now. But that's ridiculous. Now I can't use a perfectly good emoji anymore!


The season finale of The Mindy Project airs tomorrow, March 24 at 9:30/8:30c on Fox.
