Young Girl Flips Off Audience At Christmas Pageant And Social Media Is Loving It

A little girl cast as an angel in her very first nativity play is being celebrated by the Internet for flipping off the entire audience for at least 20 minutes. Young Ella made an unforgettable stage debut when she walked out to the stage, sought out to see where her mom was sitting and flipped the bird. “Bless mason and Ella in their school play, it’s just a shame Ella spent the whole time trying to show me she’d hurt her middle finger ????????‍♀️????????,” Ella’s mom, Carla Bovingdon, shared to Facebook along with the hilarious photos of her angelic daughter. According to Bovingdon, Ella just really likes to show her mom when she’s hurt herself. Once Bovingdon shared the picture of innocence with the Facebook world, little Ella’s debut stage performance went viral.

Now, we’re all hurting with stitches from laughing so hard. ????

The moment Ella walked out onto the stage, she searched the crowd to find her mom and concertedly waved her middle finger in the air for her mom to see.

At first, Bovingdon was horrified and kept asking Ella to put her finger down. “I was thinking, ‘oh god, Ella please stop.’ Because she was doing it so innocently I think most people were thinking, ‘oh bless her,'” Bovingdon told Manchester Evening News. “I was like put ya hand down????????‍♀️ ????” Bovingdon later commented on her now-viral Facebook post.

Bovingdon was more embarrassed than amused at first, but after she saw a few people giggling in the audience, she was able to accept that her daughter was not going to let up. “The performance was about half-an-hour long, and I would say 70 percent of it she had her middle finger up. Now after people have had a laugh I can see the funny side of it,” she told the outlet.

All Ella was trying to do was show her mom her “injury.”

“She likes to let me know if she’s at all injured, so she was basically trying to show me what she had done from across the room. It was the tiniest little hangnail as well,” Bovingdon told Manchester Evening News. Later, Bovingdon shared an image of Ella’s tragic injury, saying “This is the tiny cut she was trying to show me ????????‍♀️????????????.” If you look closely, you see a little bit of redness around Ella’s bird finger cuticle. While Ella just had a hangnail, it’s easy to forget how concerning it probably was the very first time we all had a hangnail or ripped skin around our cuticles. We’ve all become hardened now to the feeling, but Ella was the definition of innocence that night.

At one point, Ella put up two middle fingers just so she could compare her ‘injured’ finger to her other finger.

Little Ella only had eyes for her middle fingers for the duration of the school play. When Ella decided to pull her middle fingers together side by side, essentially becoming the angelic version of Eminem, her mom decided she just had to accept that Ella was going to do what she wanted. At the very least, the nativity scene must have taught Bovingdon the gift of “serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and wisdom to know the difference.”

“Had to be my kid ????????‍♀️????” Bovingdon would later comment on social media. 

We’re so glad this real-life angel could brighten up so many people’s day.

“Oh my word that is hilarious ????????thank you Ella for cheering up a gloomy Tuesday ????????,” commented one family friend. “This keeps popping up on my feed and I’m literally laughing at it every time ???????????? hilarious,” commented another friend.

The best part about Ella’s stage presence is that, according to her mom, “she was completely oblivious ????.” Her family and friends are suggesting that she hold onto the photos and wait until young Ella is a ripe 18-year-old and can enjoy a proper laugh from her naivete. In the meantime, her mom has tried to convey what it means that she’s gone viral, but she still doesn’t get it. At first, Bovingdon told Manchester Evening News that, Ella “wanted to say thank you to everyone for liking her picture, but then she said, ‘I don’t know what’s funny though’. She doesn’t get what the joke is.”

One day, Ella. One day.

The ‘How It Started’ Memes Are Filled With The Funny And Wholesome Content We All Need In 2020

@xolei3 / Twitter

It is not a lie to say that 2020 has been a year of disappointment and high-stress scenarios. We’ve had to quarantine from a virus, wildfires are destroying a lot of land, and well, everything else going on has just made things worse. Fortunately, on Twitter trend is giving everyone a chance to see that things can get better.

Let’s face it, 2020 has been a tough year for everyone but one Twitter trend is making life a little better.

We’ve all seen the “How It Started” memes taking over social media in recent weeks. The memes are both funny and inspirational with some showing some amazing glow ups and others showing the crushing reality of everyday life. We have all felt like the man crying over 2020 at some point over the last 7 months. It’s like this year just doesn’t stop.

Relationships are a big part of this meme trend.

Oof. This is painful and so many of us know this to be true. 😭 Sure, we can all blame our relationship woes on the current state of the world. However, that would just be doing a disservice to ourselves and our love lives. Most of us who are single now have been single for a very long time pre-Covid. But, hey, no one knows that you’re lying if you blame Covid.

A few wonderful people highlighted their transition into their true selves.

Stunning. Show-stopping. Magnificent. We love to see it. There is nothing better to see in this world than someone living their authentic truth. Like, go and do your thing. Slay all of the hearts you see, honey, and take no prisoners. We are all better in their world to be surrounded by people living in complete honesty.

The Lil Nas X joined in on the fun and highlighted his own meteoric rise to fame.

The “Old Town Road” singer really did make a big name for himself. Not only did his song get made into a duet and remix with every artist imaginable, he beat Mariah Carey’s record. Lil Nas X went from someone that no one knew to unseating Mariah Carey for longest time spent at No. 1 on the Billboard Charts.

There are some very clever takes on this meme.

So, like, who else feels like they are being personally attacked by this meme? College might have been years ago but these memories linger. Tequila is just one of those things that so many of use have to learn the hard way and those lessons stick with you.

Simone Biles gave us one of the most memorable glow ups of the meme challenge.

Simone Biles is one of the most legendary women to ever walk this planet. The way she was able to make herself known around the world as the best gymnast is no short feat. She is and will always be one of the best women to represent the U.S. in the Olympics.

Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ Is Already Everywhere And It Is Only October

Jeff Kravitz / FilmMagic for Mariah Carey

It is a fact that 2020 has tested us more than any year before. Everything that could have gone wrong has gone wrong. There is a virus keeping us home, wildfires are ravaging the West Coast, and, well, politics. It is only October and people are finding solace in a likely unlikely place: Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”

It is October and “All I Want For Christmas Is You” has already been No. 1 on the Billboard Charts.

Only Mariah Carey could have a Christmas song make it to the No. 1 spot months before Christmas. We can only speculate that the state of the world right now is making people crave something joyous and jolly. And, tbh, if you are reading this you have either secretly listened to the song, are currently listening to the song, or know someone who is already listening to this song.

“All I Want For Christmas Is You” reached No. 1 for the first time last year. The song, written in 1994, took 25 years for the song to make it to No 1 and that is just a travesty of epic proportions. However, it is never too late to truly appreciate the truly important cultural touchstones of our society.

Carey’s greatest song is literally taking over people.

Those first few notes just make the whole world hit differently, in all honesty. Not to mention that Christmas is more Christmas-y when “All I Want For Christmas Is You” is playing. The air gets colder and there are suddenly sleigh bells ringing in the distance. The iconic Christmas song is a very important part of American culture and history.

Even the kids are rocking out to “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”

It seems that the anthem for this Halloween is “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” This is not up for debate, according to Twitter. People are all spending time listening to this holiday bop as a way to make the year go a little bit faster and end 2020 without anymore damage.

So many people are being forced to listen to the song because of those around them.

There is nothing wrong with celebrating the holidays early. Everyone is just trying to make it through the remaining months of 2020 with some kind of comfort. If that comfort comes from one of the greatest songs ever created on this planet, then that’s okay too.

If you need to mix it up, there is no lack of covers out there to enjoy.

There is the Dolly Parton/Jimmy Fallon version, but they are not the only ones. You can also check out Ariana Grande, Fifth Harmony, and Idina Menzel giving their own spins on the holiday classic. Yes, classic. Like Carey, this song will likely outlive every single one of us.

You can check out the original music video for “All I Want For Christmas Is You” below.

Oh, and there is a 2019 version so there goes your weekend.
