Admit it. You wanted to act just like her. Wait till you see her all grown up.

The Addams Family taught generations how to laugh in the face of monsters and goblins. Now, Wednesday Addams is all grown up. And she's taking on the scary stuff in real life. With style.

The idea of revisiting Wednesday Addams as a grown-up person is genius, right? RIGHT?

Wednesday had that perfect deadpan stare. She did whatever she wanted to 100% of the time, whether it was strapping her brother in an electric chair or completely destroying a summer camp play. She was exactly herself, immune to social pressure. She had a fashion uniform before having a fashion uniform was a thing.

For a certain kind of girl, she was a hero.

But you have to wonder if outside the cocoon of her weird, accepting family, in the face of the cold, cruel world, does her lack of giving a shit last?


Definitely. Yes.

Exhibit A: Douchewanker thinks you care what he thinks about your smile.


How the hell are you supposed to respond to that? A drive-by attack — no warning, no opportunity for repartee.

Most of us would spend the rest of the day creating futile, angry fantasies of what we would've done if we'd had a second to think.

Here's how to handle it "Addams Family" style.

1. A polite knock on a door. (How does she know what door? Doesn't matter.)
2. Ask a simple question.


3. Introduce some friends. Be sure to mention their particular talents.

4. And leave with some parting words of advice.

Once such beluga that's believed to live in Norwegian waters is so comfortable among humans that it played fetch with a rugby ball.

The truth doesn't hurt for an elementary school teacher in California who's gone viral for teaching her class an empowering remix of one of Lizzo's hit songs.

Ms. Mallari — who teaches at Los Medanos Elementary School in Pittsburg, east of San Francisco — took the singer's song, "Truth Hurts," and reworked the lyrics to teach her students how to be great.

Lizzo's song made history this year for being the longest running number one single from a female rap artist. The catchy original lyrics are about boy problems, but Mallari's remix teaches her students about fairness, helping each other out, and embracing their own greatness.
