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.


Maya Rudolph Can't Shake Her Infamous 'Bridesmaids' Street Scene www.youtube.com


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".

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
