If you saw the much-anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 this weekend, you probably walked away from the movie smiling to yourself about the rapid-fire action and adventure…and the jokes. OH the jokes are plentiful in Vol 2., and for that we are thankful. One joke in the movie actually stands about above the rest, and the internet is here to crown one joke as the best joke:
“I’m Mary Poppins, y’all.”
At one point, Star-Lord and his (faux) father, Yondu, are floating down to the ground together, after a battle near-miss. Star-Lord is being transported via his jet pack, while Yondu is holding onto his Yaka Arrow (you know, his arrow!). Star-Lord happens to quip, “You look like Mary Poppins,” to which Yondu asks, “Who’s that? Is he cool?”
Star-Lord replies, “Yes, he’s cool,” and that’s when Yondu lets out the best laugh of the movie, along with: “I’m Mary Poppins, y’all.”
The internet can’t get enough of this, and rightfully so. It took about 5 seconds for the jokes and the MEMES to come rolling in.
There’s suddenly a whole lot of excitement about the upcoming Mary Poppins sequel, and we were already here for it, but now we’re even more ready.
And no, the joke is not lost on Yondu himself, Michael Rooker, who appears to be a big fan of the nanny.
Hats off to Guardians’ director/writer extraordinaire, James Gunn, for this practically perfect joke. Now we wait for Julie Andrews to chime in.
