Maya Rudolph has had a great career in comedy. From a cast member on Saturday Night Live, to comedy movies, to my favorite guest character on The Good Place, she brings humor everywhere she goes.

Though her ongoing legacy may be one of less nuance, if her words are anything to go by.


Rudolph recently went on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, guest hosted by Melissa McCarthy. McCarthy and Rudolph obviously started talking about their friendship and the movie they starred in together, Bridesmaids.

Apparently, Rudolph cannot outlive an infamous scene from the movie.

She explains a recent trip to Starbucks.

"I was at Starbucks recently and my Starbucks name, in case anybody wants to know, is Donna, because no one spells Maya correctly. And then they pass it to the next person and they say 'Mia' or 'Moira.'"
"But I have to answer to it, so I just changed it to Donna."

However, on this Starbucks trip, they did not say Donna. Or Mia. Or Moira.

"So I was waiting for them to say Donna, and this guy just sheepishly handed me this cup."

They then show a cup with her infamous line written on it instead of a name.

'It's happening. I'm sh---ing in the street.'

That is a pretty interesting legacy to have.






Bridesmaids received critical acclaim upon release. The film's crossover appeal of a raunchy comedy starring hilarious women has made it a touchstone for discussion about female led movies.

That raunchy humor however has left an imprint on the work of the comedians in the film. Rudolph is the lady who 'sh-- in the street' while McCarthy is the one with 'molten lava' coming out of her.

That appeal has endured though, with people still talking about how much they enjoyed the film.






Everyone has a story of their name being called wrong at Starbucks, but it's unlikely it's this bad.

Maybe next time they write "Don" instead of "Dawn" on your cup, you'll be grateful you aren't "The lady who is sh---ing in the street".

So let's talk about how a dog owner on Facebook learned her dog's "adorable" behavior was, in fact, furious masturbation.

Readers, if you know anything about me you know I love a good plot twist and I love chonky puppers.

Yesterday, life combined my two great loves in a hilarious and inappropriate way.

I was mindlessly scrolling through my dog groups on Facebook when a video with a few hundred laugh reacts but almost no comments caught my eye.

The still from the video was a pudgy little Frenchie, so obviously I had to read and watch.

Have you ever fantasized about what it would be like to win the lottery? Having money for the rest of your life, as far as the eye can see, to cover your expenses.

And have you thought about all the things you would buy if you could really afford them? Are they ALL practical things, or are some of them silly?

We always love to fantasize about what life would be like if money were no object. And you are not alone!

One of the most freeing realizations I've had was when I understood that not everyone was going to like me.

That's just the way it is for all of us, and I learned that it would be unfair for me to dedicate so much time worrying about what others might think.

It changed my life—improved it, I'd say.

That, combined with my willingness to take responsibility for my own actions, was crucial to my self-development.

Whether it's an epiphany or experience, there are many things that can happen and can successfully shift your perspective.

People shared their stories after Redditor drewyourstory asked the online community:

"What life event or experience changed your perspective?"
