Many of you may remember Sex and the City, a sitcom that followed four women’s lives and relationships through good sex and bad. The show’s most ardent viewers found it easy to identify with one or more of its main characters. There was Carrie Bradshaw, the self-deprecating, too hopeful writer; Samantha Jones, the highly confident and highly oversexed vixen; Charlotte York Goldenblatt, the conservative prestige whore searching for true romance; and Miranda Hobbes, the often masculinized, debbie downer lawyer.
There have only been four women justices on the Supreme Court in the history of its existence — Sandra Day O’Connor, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan — so it’s fitting that we’d someday see an episode of SCOTUS and the City.
Which justice would you assign to each of these character roles? You’re about to find out…
This video was put together by The Shorts Show Productions, home of Brooklyn’s Worst Sketch Comedy. Check out what happens when the ladies of the Supreme Court meet to discuss the latest judicial gossip.
Everyone’s favorite justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, fills the role of Carrie; Sandra Day O’Connor plays hoity-toity Charlotte; Sonia Sotomayor gets cast as semen-loving Samantha; and Elena Kagan is football fanatic Miranda. The costumes and mannerisms are perfect for their Sex and the City match-ups.
Aside from everyone telling Justice O’Connor they took bets on whether she died, this was the best joke:
Elena Kagan: Uh oh. It’s Antonin Scalia. I was supposed to meet him 20 minutes ago to go quail hunting.
Sonia Sotomayor: Forget about the quails. You should shoot him in the dick!
Elena Kagan: I should shoot him in his SCROTUS.
Shoot him in his originalist SCROTUS, indeed, Justice Kagan.
