Basically, “Strangers With Candy” is my religion and Simple Times: Crafts For Poor People is my Bible. I suppose this makes Amy Sedaris my own personal Jesus? Maybe not that exactly, but something close. On a recent episode of Jimmy Fallon, Amy gifted us all with an instructional on how to make edible kitty litter and cat turds.

Oh, and don’t forget your fake teeth. I have no idea why. But Amy ate the litter and poop with fake teeth and I have faith in her. There’s a gratuitous Jerri Blank GIF after the jump. Just cuz.

Congratulations, you made it through another holiday season. But you’re so broke you’ll be stuck at home eating ramen noodles until April! Never fear, actress and crafting extraordinaire Amy Sedaris won’t let those hands get idle. Simple Times: Crafts For Poor People, a belly-achingly hilarious tome of super-easy crafts and recipes, is a follow-up to her amazing book, I Like You: Hospitality Under The Influence. In both books, the uber-creative Sedaris proves you need panache — not cash! — to entertain and be entertaining.

When you finally dig yourself out of credit card debt, you’ll be a total crafting diva. Being broke never looked more fun.
Obviously, we are big Tina Fey, Amy Sedaris, and Aisha Tyler enthusiasts. So we immediately clicked on this Huffington Post poll about 15 of the leading ladies of funny. But—wait—it asks readers to rate the women on their looks? Even HuffPo acknowledges that it’s a “poll of ridiculous proportions.” Sure, these women are beautiful. But it’s their wit, slapstick antics, and all-around hilariousness that stole our hearts. So while we wished they asked, “Who’s the funniest comedienne?” we decided to take a look at the current rankings. What we found may surprise you. Keep reading »
