Yesterday Jeopardy jumped on the Taylor Swift joke gravy train, offering the following clue: “2009's best female country vocal went to her for 'White Horse,' where (SHOCKER!) she goes off on an ex-boyfriend.”
As the Internet's leading Taylor Swift snarkologist, I must say this is a watershed moment for Taylor Swift snark. The running slow-burn of Taylor Swift jokes that started with Amy Poehler and Tina Fey at the Golden Globes has finally reached critical mass in the form of a Jeopardy answer. To put it bluntly, Taylor Swift has become such a one-trick pony in the cultural zeigteist that she's become a trivia question about ex-boyfriends. The all-caps “SHOCKER!” emphasizes just how much the world is over her broken heart, “boys suck!” schtick.
But maybe she's having the last laugh, rolling in $52 million dollars and trash bags of unopened fan mail that will never be read. Now let's go have appletini at brunch cause we're tweenty-twwwooowooo! and head down to the headshop to decorate our apartments like it's Alice in Wonderland.
