Skeptical Parent Chrissy Teigen Questions The Education Of ‘The Little Mermaid’
By Izza Sofia, 12 Jun 2018
If you are a huge fan of Disney’s princesses movies, you probably have heard of ‘Part of Your World’ from The Little Mermaid.
Chrissy Teigen, wife of John Legend, listened to this iconic ballad too, and has taken to Twitter to raise a very interesting yet important question.
The supermodel, and a very skeptical mother, tweeted, “How does ‘Ariel’ know what ‘reprimand’ means but not ‘feet’?” For those who need some foundation knowledge of what Teigen is actually referring to, the word “reprimand” comes from ‘Part of Your World’ lyrics where is says: “"Bet'cha on land, they understand / Bet they don't reprimand their daughters.”
‘Ariel’ does not know a lot of words pertaining to the human world, like a “fork” or “pipe,” which she calls them “dinglehopper” and “snarfblat” respectively. She too doesn’t know the word “feet”, because the word is not integrated into her day-to-day vocabulary, according to a Twitter user.
However, Teigen continued to elaborate her frustrations, by posting that “I don’t have a peen but I now what one is.” ‘Ariel’ knowing a big word such as “reprimand” does make Disney’s fans look at the movie is a new way.

She doesn't have feet, so she doesn't know what they are. They're not something she needs to have knowledge of.— Emily Lagace (@emilylagace) June 10, 2018
