A mother-in-law who is beyond bitch. Worse than cunt. Totally meddling in the affairs of her son's relationship.
Wife and husband or girlfriend and boyfriend are arguing, and for some reason, the subject of his mother comes up, to rub his face in dirt, she calls her a 'shrike'.
Wife/girlfriend: Your mom is a freakin' shrike!
Husband/boyfriend: No she isn't!

In the foodie world, a shrike is someone who has a deep hatred for "Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee". The hate extends to both the show and the host. Shrikes usually can be found on food blogs making snarky and bitchily hilarious comments about Sandra's horrible recipes
Heather: OMG, I can't believe they said that Sandra Lee must have fucked all the Food Network executives to get her TV show.
Brittany: What? Like, who said that?
Heather: The shrikes at my favorite food blog.
