I will never for the life of me understand why men whip their dick out in front of strange women. Especially when it is flaccid. What woman in the world has ever said, “Oh my god, you know what I need right now?! Your penis! Your flaccid penis! Thank God you are here!” Comedian Sasheer Zamata did a skit for the web series Storytime about this very occurence. She’s just better able to laugh about it than most of us. [Clutch Magazine]
Two weeks have passed since Daniel Tosh joked that it would be funny if five guys raped a woman in his audience and the shit hit the fan. But did no one learn anything about how to handle a heckler?
Seemingly not. Comic Eddie Griffin
is going to may be sued — and he took a thrown drink to the face! — for taunting a female audience member about being a lesbian.
According to the San Jose Mercury News, Fiona Walsh, 39, of San Jose, went with her partner Leslie Champlin to go see Griffin perform at Tommy T’s Comedy Club. During the show, they sat in front of the stage. As the set wore on, Walsh thought the comedian was drunk and not very funny. Onstage, Griffin noticed Walsh wasn’t laughing and (drunkenly perhaps) told her she looked “rigid” and like a “librarian.” At some point during all this, he noticed Champlin’s hand on Walsh’s shoulder and started yelling at the couple about their sexuality; he offered to have sex with them, saying he would “show them a good time,” and pumped his hips in Walsh’s face from the stage. She then threw a drink at him and he threw water bottles right back. The couple was “escorted out” of the club while other audience members hollered.
Again we have a case of a comedian 1) acting like a major dick to his audience and 2) not being funny while doing so. But this situation is different than the recent one with Daniel Tosh. Keep reading »
Okay, JGL, we forgive you for “misspeaking” and saying that pretty girls are rarely funny. Now come over here and give me a kiss. [Yahoo]
Louis C.K. just got 100 percent lamer, in my opinion. I just watched this rape joke reel put together by the feminist org, the Women’s Media Center, to show that Daniel Tosh’s not-funny rape joke last week was not an abheration to comedy. (You can read the whole backstory here.) Tosh has made plenty of other not-funny rape jokes in the past and both Dave Chapelle and Louis C.K. — who came to Tosh’s defense on Twitter — have wasted some precious comedy capital as well. As the WMC puts it, these are all rape jokes that comedians make for cheap laughs. They do nothing to make a statement about our culture. I hope that one day Louis’ daughters grow up and ask him, “Daddy, why were you making jokes about rape?” (Daniel Tosh, you can kindly not procreate, kthx.) [Women's Media Center] (Put your headphones on at work, because the audio is NSFW.)
[Personally, I think most of these jokes are being presented out of context. Some of them -- having seen them in full context -- are actually "good" rape jokes in my opinion, while others are cheap. Kind of hard to judge their quality when taken out of context though. Or, as George Carlin's voice references at the end, out of their full construct. -- Editor]
What might happen if Dora the Explorer grew up and became a kickass crime fighter with explosives expertise and a penchant for dirty words? “Modern Family”‘s Ariel Winter shows us a whole other side of Dora. [College Humor]
Remember that Google Chrome ad featuring a Google Doc aimed at winning a spurned girlfriend back? How annoying is that commercial, right? Well the folks over at Upright Citizens Brigade made a response video, from the perspective of pissed off girlfriend Jen, and it’s pretty funny. Check it out, and watch the original video after the jump! Keep reading »
God, life can get so messy when you witness a murder, am I right? Follow Alison and Andrew as they attempt to escape two violent killers via the Witness Protection Program. Well, sort of. This is why hipsters should never, ever, get involved with murder. Like, ever. [YouTube]
The first time I watched this video of this demon singing trout, I cried so much from laughing that I ruined my mascara. The fine folks over at Best Week Ever posted it, in honor of their last week as a site. We’re going to miss BWE, but we’ll always have this incredible video to remember them by, so there’s that.

I was never really sure what it was about Selena Gomez that got Justin Bieber all in a tizzy. But it seems that maybe she’s kind of funny? Here she is starring alongside Nick Kroll in a funny parody of softcore S&M hit Fifty Shades of Grey entitled “Fifty Shades of Blue,” in which she falls for a disgusting painter named Carl Blue.
