If you liked the post about She-Ra, you might be moderately amused by this one too

Did you know there's actually a pop singer named Jem?

Check her out.

I'm as shocked as I was when I found out there was a real band called The Misfits, but it was a whole different kind of shock. With The Misfits, it made me feel clueless that I didn't know they were actually a famous band from the seventies. With Jem, I feel like she's the clueless one, although clearly no one seems to care, so I guess she's not that clueless. Also, from clicking around on her website a little, it's clear that new real-life Jem hasn't decided whether her name is capitalized or not. Now you'll excuse me, I've got to go practice with my new band, The Archies.

Note: If you don't get this at all, read this and you'll think it's hilarious, just like everyone else.

Who knew you watched all the girl cartoons, too?

I'm shocked you didn't know about the misfits.
I hope you have a safe and happy Holiday and the best wishes for the New Year.

I like the way you don't actually mention Jem and the Holograms in the post. It's like a little test: Are you "in the know"?
