Boss [baws, bos]
1. exemplifies a unique quality; awesome; incredible
2. An expression from the mid 1950s, which fell from favor by the early 1960sâ€¦.until now...
When I was introduced to Natalie Dee, I wanted to hug her. Granted, we were not formally introduced and to digress from creepy status, I can tell you one thing – she is a satirical comic genius who totally digs Wu Tang.
I bet you want to hug her now too.
Nataliedee.com has become my daily affirmations – not necessarily by definition. Through her comics she expresses her real life encounters, vulnerabilities, conversations and of course, her addiction to diet coke. Browsing through her unique art you may even think to yourself, “maybe I’m not the only one with a screw loose…there really is someone else who enjoys Turban Tuesday.”
And over the past couple of years, I have come to realize that her comics serve a dual purpose. Because Natalie Dee is seemingly well rounded, her comics come in handy for any and all human exchanges (use of comic’s impact is likely greater if you are at a loss for words). I have created real fictional instances below in hopes that you will recognize why Natalie Dee is so BOSS.
Are you in an altercation?
Instead of lying down like a coward in the fetal position, use this little gem. Your nemesis will walk away out of mere confusion. This is also an ideal time to holler, â€œBooyah!â€
Do you own a cat?
Me either. So if you find yourself surrounded by cat lovers in deep conversation about LOLzâ€¦attempt to relate.
Did your sister-in-law just get pregnant?
Nothing will express your excitement more than a rainbow.
Are you running late for work?
Turtles are slow’ how could your boss ever refute that one?
Are you awkward?
This one is great for the time you held the door open for a complete stranger and they proceeded to call you â€œawkward.â€ You turn-around and you show them awkwardâ€¦
Not into politics?
There will never be a winner of a political debate held down the street at your local pubâ€¦until you prance in the door.
Enjoy the Moutain Dew/Nerd combo?
Dew the dew bra! That’s all I really have to say about this one.
Did you make a bad decision?
While explaining the situation to your parents, ease the mood with a cupcake. Hey, it could always be worseâ€¦
Overwhelmed by technology trends?
No need to worry your pretty little head about it. Reply to the office email about iPhone 4 discrepancies with this farcical treasure’ Nutella does wonders my friends.
Do you like adorable creatures?
When saying it in words won’t do you justice, this princess works for all occasions.
