Incredulous Kristy Does Not Have Time For Your Gum Chewing Shenanigans
Guys, look at this fucking book cover. It is practically a meme in itself. First of all, Claudia's room appears to be a barren, orange-carpeted wasteland. Isn't club headquarters supposed to be crowded and messy and full of art supplies and old Halloween candy? (Illustrator: "Look, I put a painting of Hershey's Kisses on the wall, what more do you want.") Secondly, Jessi (wearing some weird shiny leggings that look suspiciously Dov Charney approved) is clearly thinking "oh shit, I am so screwed right now." Wendy (the Bad Baby-sitter of the title) is like "what? This ain't your castle, I can chew some damn gum. Jeez."

Kristy . . . is wearing the bitchiest bitchface of all the bitchfaces. I can't stop staring. It's amazing. Let's take a closer look.


Since you guys make me laugh regularly, I'm pretty sure you can come up with a better caption for her than I can. So I made a memegenerator template for her. I call her Incredulous Kristy, but you can call her whatever you want. If you come up with something funny, please make an image and leave me a comment with a link to your creation. Funniest image wins the dubious prize of a beat up copy of Claudia's Book, where you can learn all about the formative events that made Kishi the artist and bad speller she is today.


I never realized how much fun it is to caption BSC covers. Can we do this every week? Here's mine:

I can't come up with anything funny for the cover, but my book's previous owner can: On my copy (which came from a thrift store), the previous owner used a pen or pencil to make an indent on Kristy's hand to make it look like she was giving the finger.

"Bitch, what do you mean you didn't read the club notebook?"

this is fun! caption contests every week :)

I was such a Kristy growing up, despite the fact that I thought was was like Claudia and decided hiding candy all around my room was cool.

I thought I'd hark back to the original meme somewhat.

Kristy Thomas is the BSC's HBIC, obviously. ;)

I dont have a meme but these are awesome. I could never understand why Ann M Martin loved Kristy so much!

by winstonegbert on 10:44 PM. #

ROFL oh Kristy, how I love you.

Another illustration scheduled for later today :)

And just wondering,did you ever see in the books if Mom & Pop Kishi speaking Japanese? or Mimi?

Such a brilliant idea. I MAY have made a bunch... but I'm most pleased with this one:

I love you have dedicated a blog to Claudia. The way her fashion was described in the BSC books was my fave part.
Thank you!

by Carly Findlay on 7:27 AM. #

I hope you approve. (obvs I said frank meaning something else?)

For mine, I chose to combine the whimsy of the classic 1995 film, Clueless ("Do you even KNOW who my father is??!") with the timeless expression on Kristy's decidedly bitch-face (and the ghost-writers' penchant to repeatedly mention just how wealthy Watson is)

I'm late to the party, but as someone who idolized Kristy, I'm going to be doing this all night. So much better than Insanity Wolf.

Just came across this and had to add mine:

President Forever

by beppinsan on 12:08 AM. #

I had way too much fun with this.

by Natty on 4:37 AM. #

This was fantastic. Great idea!!

by Alaina on 9:45 AM. #

Sadly, that meme generator is no more. No surprise, since I'm two years late to the party. But I think I'd have gone for:

Duh, it's like, the *first* rule of the club.

You don't talk about Babysitters' Club.
