Adele and Mrs. Doubtfire share more similarities than you might suspect: they’re both pleasantly plump, exude a cheery joyfulness, and if you haven’t seen the ladies’ hot dog impressions, then you’re in for a treat.

A new Tumblr melds together the British singer and the Robin Williams character on “What if Adele was Mrs. Doubtfire?” Filled with about a dozen posts since its creation Thursday, it attempts to answer that question.

We’d imagine that Adele would be just as kooky and nutty as her 1993 movie counterpart, but with a slightly better singing voice. However, the singer admits she loves to curse, and she’s allegedly struggled with a drinking problem, so it’s possible the kids would be better off with a nanny who accidentally lights herself on fire.

Although Adele could certainly give Mrs. Doubtfire a run for her money in the “hip-hop, bebop, dance ‘til you drop” department, we still don’t know whether she can “yo yo, make a mean cup of cocoa.”
