DID YOU KNOW?
If you've already seen one of the best teen movies, Mean Girls, sure enough, you've heard the word 'fetch' many times. And by fetch, we actually mean, 'cool', 'awesome', or 'good'. So when did it all start? If you still remember the bracelet that Cady Heron showed to The Plastics, then that is the first time Gretchen Wieners used "so fetch!" Followed by this, Regina George asked what 'fetch' is, in which Gretchen answered, "it's like slang, from England." In case you didn't know, Gretchen tries to make 'fetch' happen so she uses it often to describe a thing or a situation. Additionally, she hopes to make it a new slang it-word. But, in another scene, Regina George told Gretchen to "stop trying to make 'fetch' happen, it's not going to happen!"
Ironically, 'fetch' actually happened outside the movie or in real life. Along with the phrase, “You Go, Glen Coco!”, the word "fetch" became so iconic that even the White House used it on a tweet. A photo of Obama's dog holding a tennis ball in his mouth was tweeted with a caption, "Bo, stop trying to make fetch happen", and the line is in reference with the movie, Mean Girls. Additionally, Tina Frey, writer of the screenplay never thought that fetch actually happened. In an interview on Today show, she apologized and said that she didn't mean for it to happen. Speaking of 'fetch' did you know that the word 'fetch' comes from the word, fetching, which means attractive? Right, 'fetch' is the shortened version.
