Mary Poppins Quits: Kristen Bell Parodies the Disney Hero, Takes on Minimum Wage
Just a spoonful of sugar won’t raise the minimum wage in America, so Mary Poppins has packed her carpet bag and is so flying out of here.
The newest satirical sendup from the ever popular website Funny or Die features Kristen Bell embodying the oh-so-practical Disney nanny expounding on why the federal minimum wage needs to be raised by three dollars. According to Mary, “In every job that must be done, you must be paid in more than fun. You get your paycheck and, SNAP, federal and state income tax, medicare, and social security…why, you’re living below the poverty line!” Mary also claims the current system is “supercalifragilisticexpialibullshit.”
The sketch is “practically perfect in every way,” as Mary Poppins often described herself. Julie Andrews would be proud, as would every musical theater queen who watches it!
