     This Wednesday, let us consider an eponymous avatar of the day, Wednesday Addams, whose character (played by Christina Ricci) appeared in arguably one of the better films of the 1990's, Addams Family Values.

     George Bush senior's Vice President Dan Quayle's maybe-sanctimonious idea of "family values" was a meme of the time, but the film turned it around by having a bunch of ghouls in a haunted mansion show better family values--albeit in subversive ways--than a bunch of "WASPs" (sort of like Quayle) at a country-club summer camp. One could say more, but the links above probably say it better. Enjoy.

     ...Okay, here's a video too:
