Minnie Mouse’s Instagram Page Is Beyond Cute

Lester

By Shel Silverstein

Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.

The Instagram game just got real, guys. Minnie Mouse (you read that right), the world’s most famous lady mouse and hair accessory icon, has just created her own Instagram account. She launched the page on Monday, March 25, in time for the iconic character’s 90th birthday. Since then our little Minnie has broken all Instagram laws by posting NINE photos in just one day. At the time of launching, she has racked up more than 12,000 followers. And to top that off, she is only following 3 accounts: Minnie Style, Disney, and M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E. So, yeah, she’s technically a senior citizen, but Minnie is definitely winning at Instagram.

 

The first post to Minnie Mouse’s account shows her in the early illustration phase. She is wearing a blue polka dot bloomer, a red bow, and yellow heels standing against a scrapbook-esque background with her signature and a flower. The caption reads, “From me, to all of you! Follow along for more joy…and polka dots. 😉 XO, Minnie.”

What’s even more impressive than a mouse having her very own Instagram page is the fact that she has 11 permanent stories each with their own matching title tiles. One is designated for style essentials, which is for Minnie a flower, red hat, polka dot shirt, and yellow pumps. There is a BFF section, which has photos of Daisy, Donald Duck, and Mickey. The most unexpected story is the one labeled “Self Care.” It features some tips such as finding joy in the little things, spending time outdoors, and laughing often. It is true what they say: with age comes wisdom, and this mouse is 90 so we’re going to take her tips.

 

It actually makes sense that a 90-year-old cartoon mouse would want an Instagram profile. She already has everything an icon could ever want, including a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Being the cute, bubbly cartoon we all know and love, Minnie just wants to post some content that is going to brighten your day.
