8 Reasons Jim Carrey As The Grinch Was The Original Fuckboy

8 Reasons Jim Carrey As The Grinch Was The Original Fuckboy

"6:30, dinner with me. I can't cancel that again! 7 o'clock wrestle with my self-loathing... I'm booked!" -Every fuckboy ever


Jim Carrey in "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," is absolutely iconic. The tweets, the Gifs and inside jokes are neverending references to what stands to be a classic Christmas movie favorite. This movie is a must-see every holiday season, but as I've entered college and rewatched this classic for the hundredth time, I've noticed that there's something about the Grinch that rings all too familiar.

For a while, I couldn't put my finger on it, but—thanks to a group message I've finally figured it out. Jim Carrey's Grinch is literally the actual representation of today's fuckboy.

Here are eight reasons why Jim Carey's "the Grinch" was the fuckboy we didn't know we needed:

1. Tall

The sacrifices we make for a tall man... He's kind of a dick, inconsistent, likes a million Instagram pictures of girls in bikinis every day, but he's tall. Smh...

2. Dad bod

Guys with dad bods... girls love them. There's something about that extra fluff and overconfidence that really gets us.

3. Doesn't give a fuck

Whether he doesn't give a fuck about you, what anyone thinks about him or even his beer gut—his lack of caring makes him seem all the more unattainable, which causes girls to flock because they want to be able to say they "changed him." Which btw, is usually rooted in a lack of self-acceptance... /:

4. Runs from all of his problems

*A traumatic childhood experience scars him for life so he runs far, far away to his man cave and has a deep hatred for anyone who has ever hurt him and hurts everyone else before they can hurt him because this defense mechanism is 100 percent effective so long as he sticks to it.*

5. Too "busy" for you

He is somehow always busy times 6:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. AKA on a date with another girl, playing Fortnite, hooking up with someone else, avoiding getting attached, self-loathing...

6. Hairy

Fuckboys are always so hairy and it's the scruffy, burly look that adds to the "idgaf" attitude that consistently increases the list of girls vying for his attention.

7. Gets the girl

And she's always out of his league. Guys are bending over backward to win her heart, but the hairy fuckboy with the dad bod and overconfidence somehow wins her over

8. Deep, deep down, there's a heart somewhere in there

And inside each fuckboy, there's a heart two times too small... and in Whoville, they say— the fuckboy's heart will grow three sizes someday, and then—the true meaning of love will come through and he will have the strength of 10 fuckboys... plus two. (And yes this is a sorry attempt to bring the Grinch being a fuckboy full circle... Merry Christmas).

Look, I Don't Want Your Boy, But 'break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored' Makes Me Feel Incredible

It makes me feel empowered. It makes me feel my best.


I have seen so many thoughts and complaints that Ariana Grande's new song, "break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored" is shallow.

Some are even saying, "this song just perpetuates everything that is wrong with dating and relationships in society today."

But, girl, I have to disagree.

You see, just because I sing this song at the top of my lungs in both my dorm's shower and alone in my car, I am not going to steal anyone's boyfriend.

I am simply pretending like I am some kind of bad chick that no one should mess with but in reality, I apologize for walking in someone's direction.

And, let's say, if I were to say something lighthearted or friendly to him and he responds with actions that propose cheating, he wasn't a good boyfriend in the first place.

Listen, girls: stop being so insecure.

You have a boyfriend. He loves you. He chose you. If another girl comes by and his eyes dart her way, his heart wasn't in it all the way.

Not everything is deeper than the skin.

Now, let me be clear, I am not saying that it's OK for girls to go around and try to steal boyfriends. Actually, that's a pretty trashy move that no one should attempt. I know it happens, though. I know it is everyone's worst fear.

However, there is no life living within fear of rejection and being left. If those are the things that linger in the back of your mind, you will never taste the freedom of living.

Truly living.

So am I a bad person, considering that 'break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored' is my anthem?

It makes me feel empowered. It makes me feel my best.

So no, just listening to Ari's new bop doesn't make me a bad person or a boyfriend stealer.

7 Tiny Things College Dudes Do That Give Off Major Small Dick Energy

If you exhibit any of these signs, re-evaluate yourself and your choices.


If you don't know what "small dick energy" means, let me give you the Urban Dictionary definition: "someone who shows off masculinity by being cocky, showing off, overly confident to overcompensate their 4.2 inch fully erect dick."

If you're afraid you might have this tragic disease: let me explain some of the key symptoms:

1. Adding girls you don't know on any social media platform just because you think they're hot.

I never thought friend requests could be so annoying.

2. Messaging said girls with some stupid pick-up-line to start a conversation.

What is this? Tinder?

3. Getting mad and aggressive when said girls don't message you back.

Bonus points for calling them mean names!

4. Getting even angrier when they do message back saying they're not interested.

Your insecurity isn't sexy.

5. Putting others down or not treating others with respect.

If you can't be polite to your servers or other customer service employees, you are the epitome of small dick energy.

6. Cornering girls at bars or parties and making them obviously uncomfortable.

If she doesn't seem interested in the conversation, she's not interested in you. Take a hint and walk away.

7. Any sort of forcefulness, pressure, or prejudice coming from a guy as he's talking to a girl.

BIG indicators of small dick energy and also toxic masculinity!

Now look, I know it sounds like I'm being a bitch, but let me tell you that I, and every other female on this planet regardless of race, sexuality, or anything that differentiates us, has been a victim of men with small dick energy. And it's not fucking cute anymore. In fact, it never was. If anything, it's uncomfortable, it's annoying, and it's concerning.

A girl is not a bitch, a slut, a loser, or any other name you want to throw at her if she doesn't like your advances. Calling her that is probably going to make her want to suck your (small) dick even less than before, if possible. We don't know you, and even if we did, we don't owe you anything. And if your first reaction to rejection is name-calling and blatant aggression, then you are likely a toxic person as it is who's got some deep-seated anger issues that you should probably take care of. And if you think that treating someone like that is okay and don't see anything wrong with that, then you might just be a psychopath, honestly.

Have some class and self-respect, guys, and leave the #smalldickenergy back in 2018.
