When Mary Poppins sang, "just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down," she was introducing the world to the art of the backhanded compliment: insulting someone under the guise of praise.

Lisa McGee asked Twitter to share "the sly digs" they've received. She was haunted by the memory of her play inspiring a man in an not-so-inspiring way.

The story is even funnier when you know that McGee is the creator of Derry Girls, a sitcom you should absolutely binge on Netflix if you like comedy, female friendship, and alternative '90s music.
