Home-schooled then mean

Interesting plot to this movie, I think you may agree:

Plot Summary: Raised in African bush country by her zoologist parents, Cady Heron (Lohan) thinks she knows about "survival of the fittest." But the law of the jungle takes on a whole new meaning when the home-schooled 15-year-old enters public high school for the first time and falls prey to the psychological warfare and unwritten social rules that teenage girls face today.

It's the way that "home-schooled" is now a standard feature of American life, needing no explanation. I intend to check this out on video, if only to see how the whole home-schooled thing is treated.

It's Mean Girls. And as is all very proper for a Hollywood movie, not many of us can remember sharing a school with girls like this:

Again, I've been wandering the Internet looking for pictures to decorate this. Although, perhaps this

Mean Girls still would be more appropriate for here.
