'Emily In Parasite' Is A Scathing & Satirical Mashup Account

It's nearly impossible to avoid mentions of Netflix' Emily In Paris as of late. The series was released on October 2, and pretty much everyone on Twitter has an opinion about the show. The series follows Emily Cooper, an American who's just relocated to Paris for a job with a French marketing company. Emily, who is played by Lily Collins, is pretty, perky, and is also a terrible (and terribly on-point) caricature of the way Americans behave in foreign countries. 

Emily routinely rejects French culture, scoffing at everything from cliche French smoking habits to simply dining out. This pompous attitude has been widely criticized in the media, for good reason. Instead of trying to accept the ways of her new city, she seems to turn her nose up at it, consistently mocking customs that are really pretty benign.

This superior attitude is marvelously called out by a brilliant new Instagram account, @emilyinparasite. The page mixes cringey images of Emily Cooper with stills from Bong Joon-ho's Parasite. The film, a social satire that highlights class discrimination, is a perfect foil for Cooper's character. The photoshopped images make for some truly unhinged commentary. We've included their latest spicy posts, but we implore you to follow for more brilliant content.

Cringey Tale Of Clueless 'Brexidiots' Has Twitter On The Edge Of Its Seat

You don't have to look far to find breathtaking ignorance in the United States. Anti-vaxxers, flat-earthers, people who actually believe 5G is the cause of coronavirus (it's not). Today, however, we're bringing you a refreshing tale of major stupidity from across the pond, in Europe. Twitter user @Archer_RS went viral yesterday after sharing an unfinished saga about dealing with his English neighbors who voted for Brexit. It seems they did not realize that their holiday home in France would be compromised by the separation from the EU. And appealed to our hero for help.

Our storyteller agreed to assist them, even going as far as to deal with their drunk son and secure him a Friday meeting with the town's Mayor. If you're getting some serious Karen vibes, you're not alone. This tire fitter (and drunk texter) really believes that having a chat with a French mayor will change anything about his parents situation. This delusional dolt even threatened to speak to Nigel Farage. It seems when people don't actually look into the lies that are being sold to them, they ultimately suffer. At least we're gaining some serious entertainment. Even better? Archer's sitting in on Friday's meeting of the minds as a translator. It's nice to have something to look forward to.

Cringey Notre Dame Tweet About God Is Getting Singed By Heathens Who Are Definitely Going To Hell

You're all probably well aware of the monumental fire that scorched the historic Notre Dame cathedral in Paris on Monday. Clearly this was a terrible tragedy and the aftermath of it will likely take years to fully restore. That of course hasn't stopped ruthless memers everywhere from doing what they do best...

Most recently, people have been making fun of a viral tweet by Kaylee Crain, who tweeted a photo of an unscathed cross and altar in the cathedral aftermath, challenging those who still do not believe in God to justify themselves. People have been pointing out to Ms. Crain that the cross is made out of metal, which has a higher melting point than wood. 

Have these toasty memes and tweets gone too far? We'll let you be the judge of that because we're just here to witness the dumpster fire (sorry, too soon, we know).
