That’s right folks Lori Petty aka Kit Keller aka TANK GIRL is joining the cast of Orange Is The New Black. Strap on your rocket bras, because things are about to get a whole lot steamier.


Okay fine, Petty isn’t exactly the same lissome bi-curiousity she was back in the 90s. In fact, she looks more like Yoga Jones than you or I would care to admit.

Good luck telling them apart. All white ladies look the same to me.

    So, hypothetically, where would a guy find a rocket bra?

    /strictly for science

  • emmalita may have to design that one on your own. Although Katy Perry's people might help.

  • Uriah_Creep

    I can't design it, I never studied rocket science (but I'm a whiz at brain surgery!)

  • jollies

    So this is your design?

  • Uriah_Creep

    "I can't get my mind off these boobs"?

    Lori Petty as Tank Girl was indeed one of my early 90s crushes. Good job, psychic website!

    The real question is, Tank Girl the movie: underrated or rightfully forgotten?

  • Ben

    As it's own thing tank girl is kind of amazing, as an adaption of the comic Tank Girl is fucking awful shit.

  • Kala

    I am unapologetic in my love for Tank Girl. It has everything I can ever want. Bitching soundtrack. Malcolm MacDowell cheesing it up. Baby Naomi Watts (JET!!). Ice T and co. in kangaroo suits. Iggy Pop cameo.


  • Cowtools

    What more indeed?
    You didn't even mention the kangaroo beat poet, or MacDowell's holographs head(!), or the spontaneous Cole Porter number.

  • Three_nineteen

    It's amazing how living 20 extra years will make a person look older.

  • Legally Insignificant

    I actually prefer her performance in In the Army Now to Tank Girl.

  • Maybe she will play Yoga Jones' daughter, that would be perfect!

  • I'M A PEACH!

  • Joe Grunenwald

    I just started thinking about all of them singing in the museum at the end and then I teared up. I hate feeling feelings.

  • Rob

    Point Break. POINT BREAK!

  • Target_Blonde

    My mom and I once discussed how Lori Petty's character in PB would have been charged with those couple counts of "public indecency" (we learn this when Keanu has the pretty cop secretary run her record and that's also how we learned both her parents were dead) and we agreed it was probably from all the times she changed out of her surfing gear into her work uniform right next to her car.

    Yup - that's what I think of when you say Lori Petty and Point Break.

    I originally misread 'aunt' as, ahem, c*nt.
    Those earning claims did make more sense that way.

  • Uriah_Creep

    That made me snort. It hurt.

  • bastich

    I'm counting your soulless spambot shilling as another vote for "Brimstone", which was an awesome show.

    You and me against the world, and me against the world.
