You go girl. I remember the first time I heard those words — it was sometime in junior high, and I was wearing overalls with only one overall hooked, leaving the other overall dangling precariously and knocking people over if I swung around too briskly. I likely followed up use of “you go girl” with something like “kris kross fo life yo,” and then immediately retired into the library with my other nerd friends for some Algebra and Kool-Aid.
Alas, I must look at the “you go girl” comment in a different light. Thanks to EC for bringing my attention to the GoGirl. What is the GoGirl, you ask? According to the official website, it’s a “female urination device for travel and active women.” Basically, you attach this silicone funnel to your . . . ahem . . . pee area, and then you can point your piss as you wish. As a result, the GoGirl enables the active woman to piss standing up, just like her male counterparts (I have to admit I giggled at the use of “counterparts”). On the GoGirl website, not only can you purchase a device that allows you to fulfill your lifelong dream of getting completely sloshed and pissing all over a frathouse wall, you can also purchase official GoGirl clothing — including a t-shirt, cap, and shorts. Nothing like sporting the GoGirl so everyone can know that you are not only an active woman, but that you can sign your name in the snow.
Yeah yeah, how does this relate to Tina Fey? Well, last I checked, Tina Fey is a pretty damn active woman. And she may be reluctant to purchase and use the GoGirl. That’s where I come in. I can give it a test drive. I can whip out a GoGirl in situations that Tina Fey may face — a filthy NYC bathroom, camping in the Catskills, all-nighters in the writers’ room, avoiding long lines at the NKOTB reunion tour — all situations in which a GoGirl just might be the thing that saves a woman from a UTI. Eww. I grossed myself out. Savor that devotion.
Discover me, Tina Fey!
