Throw this chart in the basura and eat a Honeycrisp apple.
Honeycrisp isn't even on this thing at all! Terrible, terrible.
Kaling has a deep appreciation for romantic comedies... but also knows that when most people think of them, they “think of how crappy they are.” ... her meet-cute in an elevator with Bill Hader that ends with him dumping her for a blonde Serbian “bagel girl” because he “wanted someone with more years to share.”
That sounds exactly like every romantic comedy, ever. (Girl gets dumped by initially-awesome-seeming-but-actually-jerky guy, for jerky reason.) Just rehashing tropes but with a wink isn't mitigating the crappiness.
I love her comedic sensibility, but her interests appear to be things like shopping and rom-coms. Not my bag really, but for people who are into those things, I bet her stuff will be perfect.

@hotdog You know what? I seriously bet this pisses people off more than shit that's actually bad for our country, like the RNC. It's dumb and lame and dumb and dumb and dumb and lame.
Look at all those people, having fun and expressing themselves in ways I personally do not engage in. Terrible.
@Slutface I really like that realization a lot. Kudos for that, for real.
Ehhh... I find it really tiring when grown adult people are super-proud of their sarcasm. Like, congratulations, you have mastered the domain of 13-year-olds everywhere.
There are better means of communication, quite frankly. Why be so attached to this one? It's actually kind of lame, and it's not a suitable replacement for real intelligence or personality or sophistication.
