We always knew that Sleeping Beauty chick was a bitch. A self-described YouTube "nerd" who goes by Pinkwhig has mashed up the "Mean Girls" trailer to clips of classic Disney princesses -- and the result is a clever and remarkably spot-on articulation of the subtext that's always been lurking in those animated fairy tales. And Ariel should definitely consider calling her agent about starring in the Lindsay Lohan biopic.
