Get the hen party mug.
When a group of gossipy old ladies gather around and talk about everything they know, from whose son is gay to who had their baby five months before they got married.
Mrs. Wilson and Ms. Pinkett always hold hen parties on Sundays, right after moring service.

Get the hen party mug.
When a random group of girls decides to get together. Not letting boys ruin their gongshow, and just basically girls being girls. You're with your fellow ladies, and don't have to worry about looking too hot or anything, boys are not present, and you basically just have the time of your life with your lady friends.
Finally just a Hen party, this way I won't go and get knocked up.
