Today’s Lady News: The Tucker Max Funny-Making Formula

  • Amanda Hess at The Sexist blog braved “I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell” scribe Tucker Max‘s website for a mathematical breakdown of his hilarious jokes about Mexicans, gays, women and the disabled. A general formula for Tucker-ian humor: [Universally recognized bad thing] + [surprise reversal] x ["edge"] x ["shock value"] = Tucker Max joke. [The Sexist]
  • Brigham Young University, a Mormon college, canceled a Greek tragedy hours before curtain at the Annual Greek Festival. Content in “The Bakkhai,” to be performed by the University of Utah, was deemed inappropriate for BYU students. Director Larry West indicated this referred to sex, wine and “losing one’s inhibitions.” [UWire.com]—Seriously, this school didn’t realize a Greek tragedy wouldn’t involve lots of sex?

    A 56-Year-Old Virgin!


    Last week, a retired school teacher named Deborah Parish came before the Texas Board of Education to argue for sex education in schools. “Kids are not ready to be parents, nor are they ready to have AIDS,” she said. I don’t think anyone’s ever ready to have AIDS, but that’s besides the point. “I don’t think any of these people know you can have sexual satisfaction without taking your clothes off,” she said. “OK, embarrassment, I’m 56 years old and I’m a virgin … technically.” A few minutes later, Deborah was interrupted and told that she had arrived to the hearing a day late for that particular topic. The Board was currently discussing physical education and alcohol awareness. [Gawker] — Awwwwkard. Keep reading »

    Love Nest: Add Art To Your Bookcase, But Not The Way You Think

    I was just salivating over the photos of Jen Bekman’s apartment on Design Sponge this morning. She’s the genius behind the enormously successful (inexpensive) art-for-all website 20×200. As I was ripping through the images I happened upon one little sneaky trick for upping the pretty factor of any gathering of books: Top the books with a small framed picture or photo. Check it out above, as found in Jen’s bedroom (and see the opposite view, after the jump). Keep reading »

    Pam And Jim Prep For Their Wedding

    Remember last season, when Pam and Jim didn’t psych any of us out as they planned to sneak out and elope while their coworkers were dancing in “The Office” disco closet? They got halfway to the door when they decided to set a date and presumably print it on Dunder Mifflin paper invitations. Well, now there’s a website devoted to their big day. And yes, it includes an awkward engagement photo. I was elated by the site’s homepage, squealing as I skimmed my mouse over the (mostly stock) photos, looking for clickable hypertext. Then, finally, I sighed, as most of the tabs simply advised that information will be coming soon. Hurry up and post your registry items, Pam and Jim. I want to send you the gravy boat of your dreams!

    Quick Pic: Katy Perry’s Stylist Feels Her Up On Set

    The paparazzi were on hand to snap away behind-the-scenes as Katy Perry shot a rather wet-looking new video yesterday in LA. (They’re so helpful, those guys.) But it was Katy’s stylist who really went out of his way to assist when he lent not one, but two hands to make sure his client and her girls were looking their best. This may seem extreme, but there are lots of male fashion stylists out there and we’re pretty sure plenty of their mitts have been in even more intimate places than this. In fact, we shudder to think how much work Gaga‘s dresser has cut out for herself. Or himself. Haha, get it? (Uh, maybe not, never mind.) [TMZ] Keep reading »

    5 Celebrities Who’ve Got State Hate!

    Danielle Staub of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” has some serious beef with Jennifer Aniston. Aniston was recently a guest on “Chelsea Lately” to talk about her flick “The Bounty,” which was filmed in Atlantic City, New Jersey. At one point during the show, Aniston quipped simply, “What is with that smell?” This got Staub very riled up. She ranted to Us Weekly, “Why don’t you see more of New Jersey before you say it smells? If it were so bad, I wouldn’t be living here for 22 years. I will personalize a tour and take her to a fabulous lunch on me afterwards, all homemade Italian food, and a tour of all the wonderfully smelling places in New Jersey.” [NY Daily News]

    I get the state pride, but who cares if someone thinks your state smells? Real Housewives, that’s who. But Aniston isn’t the only celeb to speak ill of a state or city. Here are a few other celebs who totally hate America, kinda! Keep reading »

    Throw Out Your Designer Handbag And Get A Guru!

    When I was in college, I fancied myself very enlightened with my five-day-a-week yoga practice, my lotus flower tattoo, and my tattered copy of the Daoist text Zen Mind, Beginner Mind. Post-college, I experimented even more with New Age spirituality. There were Indian sweat lodges, psychic vortex tours, aura pendulum readings, natal chart mappings, and Sanskrit chanting sessions. Before you giggle, I will be the first to admit that, in retrospect, I was a bit misguided in my pursuits. What I didn’t know at the time was that I was desperately searching for my purpose in life. Once I had more of a clue about what my actual purpose was, the luster of New Age activities wore off for me. I wanted to spend more time gazing into the eyes of fellow human beings than at my own navel. Not that I discredit the knowledge gained from these experiences—hey, I still make time for yoga once a week and I would totally go to that sweat lodge again because it was crazy cool. I just now understand that engaging in New Age rituals doesn’t make you any more enlightened. Feeling secure with your place in the world does. Keep reading »
