The Disney Princess-Lauren Conrad Connection

Is it an understatement for me to call this perhaps the biggest and most important epiphany that has been epiphanied? I don’t think so.

Now, observe Ariel the Little Mermaid shedding a tear as she realizes that she has missed the chance to charm Prince Eric.
