Can We Talk About?: This “Golden Girls” Movie Poster Instagram Account Sparking All the Joy

For lovers of "Golden Girls" deep cuts only.

Can We Talk About? is a weekly series that’s cuter than an intrauterine.

I think we can all agree it’s been…quite a week. Let’s have a little bit of a palette cleanser, shall we? May I humbly introduce you to your new obsession: @golden_girls_posters.

Have you ever wondered what some of your favorite movies would be like if they had your four favorite people ever: Bea Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan, and Estelle Getty? Well, someone answered your prayers and is out here doing God’s work by photoshopping The Golden Girls into movie posters.

It’s a simple, and silly, enough idea but if you’re in need of a guffaw as much as I am these days—sister, this is it.

But these GG memes are for serious lovers of the only Fab Four I’ll ever acknowledge. For instance, most fans are familiar with Dorothy’s legendary reading of “Condoms, Rose! Condoms, condoms, condoms!” that has kept Meryl Streep up at nights, but what of the ladies’ housekeeper they mistake for a voodoo witch, Marguerite, here serving you Julia Roberts realness:

Or Dorothy’s friend Jean, who falls for Rose and whom Blanche learns is a lesbian, just like Danny Thomas:

Or the mortician the ladies visit when Rose “kills” their curmudgeony neighbor Mrs. Claxton, Mr. Puhfeiffer, who Dorothy threatens to punch in his puhface.

Or the title of the episode where Rose has to wait three harrowing days for the results from her HIV test:

Though you don’t have to have watched every episode of The Golden Girls multiple times to get these comedic gems, an encyclopedic knowledge of 6151 Richmond Street shenanigans certainly won’t hurt. Otherwise, how can you fully appreciate some of these references?

Still, there’s an undeniable joy in seeing our Girls doing anything:

I wish to never quit them.
