G.O.B. Tampons: Because The Republican Party Knows Your Body

G.O.B. tampons: they're feminine hygiene products by the people who know a woman's body best — old Republican men! With flaps and wings and widgets and hooziwhatsits for all your confusing lady parts, a woman could not have invented it better herself. (No, seriously, she couldn't have: she's not allowed.)

Found: The Greatest Job In The World

When my brother texted me a picture of this sign that he found hung up on the wall of his rural high school, I knew I had found my true calling. I mean, I've come across many miniature horse care and feeding jobs in my day, but none with such a flexible schedule. Amelia, consider…

5 Theories Regarding The Whereabouts Of Every Bobby Pin I’ve Ever Owned

The other day I needed to put my hair up before a shower, so I groggily reached into the little jar of bobby pins on my bathroom counter, felt around a bit, and  realized it was empty. Totally empty. Despite the fact that I'd just bought one of those massive value buckets of bobby pins,…

21 Reasons Why ’80s Nostalgia Is Dumb

It's no surprise people have gone to the '80s to meet their nostalgia needs. It's unseemly looking back before the 1960s. When you say, "The '50s were great," folks reply, "They sure were! Which did you prefer: the crippling conformity or the segregation?" The modern pop culture machine chewed up and crapped out the '60…

All Hail The Celebrity Kingdom

Sometimes I discover a Tumblr so genius that I get jealous, bordering on hostile, that I didn't think of it myself. Today's find is The Celebrity Kingdom, which expertly morphs celebrities and their spirit animals. Dammit! Why didn't I think of that? Seriously, Goose Vilanch is my inspiration for the day.

The Soapbox: In Comedy Is “Fat & White” The New “Sassy & Black”?

I was recently contacted through my website by a pregnant black woman who inquired about hiring me to perform standup at her baby shower. She and her husband were diehard comedy fans, and thought it would be fun to have a comic perform for their guests. "How did you find me?" I asked. "I Googled…

On “The Mindy Project”‘s Squicky Jokes About Race

It's not easy to make offensive jokes about ignorance. One person's ignorant joke can be another person's joke about ignorance and even if your comedy has the best of intentions, it's frequently misunderstood.  Offensive humor is tricky to balance, but smart humorists can do it well. I believe Mindy Kaling from "The Office" is extremely smart

So, the other day, this "cucumber sub" popped up on my Pinterest page labeled as the "perfect low carb sandwich" and it made me, like, raging mad.

Rape Jokes: I Can’t Believe You Clapped For That

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…
