Amy Schumer and Mindy Kaling, Each with Own Show, Lament Hollywood Treatment of Women

Monday, May 11th, 2015 - by Walter Hudson

There’s a point at which social activism becomes redundant. Basis for grievance can abate to a point beyond which further protest seems petty. Recognizing that point may not be an exact science. However, as you watch Mindy Kaling rattle on about her treatment by Hollywood in the above American Express ad, or chuckle at Amy […]

The Downton/Star Wars Mash-Up You Have to See

Friday, May 1st, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

Actor Rob James-Collier plays the evil butler Thomas on Downton Abbey, but in real life he must be quite the sweetie. He wrote and shot an entire Downton/Star Wars mashup on his iPhone in order to raise money for MS research. Episode One is available for free, but to watch more you have to donate to […]

Why Offending People Is Suddenly Okay (As Long As Those People Are Jewish)

Monday, April 20th, 2015 - by Spencer Klavan

Some weeks ago, Trevor Noah was named as the next host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central. And as usual whenever anything happens ever, a bunch of people got outraged. This would be an utter non-event except for how marvelously it demonstrated the hypocrisy of the progressive Thought Police. You’ve really got to love it. […]

5 Rules to Avoid Becoming a Boring Writer

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015 - by Frank J. Fleming

The human brain: 20 billion neurons, many firing at the same time. It constantly takes in visual, audio and other sensory input while also pulling up memories from throughout the brain’s entire life. It is constantly active, unpredictable, and chaotic. And as a writer, it is your enemy. Because you have to constrain this monster […]

Why Jewish Women Scare Lena Dunham (and the Rest of Hollywood)

Monday, March 30th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

Jewish women are fierce. We carry many arrows in our quiver including love for life, command of the situation, determined opinions, and freedom of expression. We are not lithe and unfettered. We do not “go with the flow.” We don’t wait until we are on our deathbeds to express our emotions, resolve hurt feelings, or pursue […]

The 3 Most Hilarious Comments Responding to Spengler’s Anti-Starbucks Rant

Friday, March 20th, 2015 - by Dave Swindle

Yes, I agree with David P. “Spengler” Goldman that it’s “Time for a National Conversation About Why Starbucks Coffee Is Disgusting.” I’ll try and have my rebuttal up shortly in defense of cheap, crappy coffee, [Updated: now here] but in the meantime, I found these 3 comments very amusing, in particular Fred Z’s: What do you […]

Justin Bieber Roast Is Epic: Read the Funniest Jokes at the Biebs’ Expense

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015 - by Michael van der Galien

Oh my. Although we have to wait for “Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber” to be aired later this month, some of the jokes made at his expense have already been published. And that’s great news… if you’re like me, that is: a real Bieber-despiser. Here’s a short selection: Kevin Hart: “Tonight we are gonna […]

6 Frank Tips for Being Funny on the Internet

Wednesday, March 11th, 2015 - by Frank J. Fleming

I’m offended by pretty much everything. See, I’m a conservative Christian, and there’s barely anything in pop culture that I don’t find offensive on some level, with all the sex and language and poor production quality. Still, in being offended by everything, I can’t even hope to compete with the modern day secular puritans on […]

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015 - by Michael van der Galien

Step number one: secretly put products in other customers’ pockets and bags. Step two: put on the largest coat you own, grab everything in sight, and hide it below your coat. Step three: go to the cash register and wait for the alarms to go berserk. Calmly walk out. Congrats, you’re now a master thief.

Is This the Most Bizarre Bar Mitzvah Video of the Year?

Thursday, March 5th, 2015 - by Susan L.M. Goldberg

There’s a subset of Jewish culture that has so much money to blow on their kids that celebrations like Bar Mitzvahs turn into outrageous, television-worthy affairs. If you want the full story in the form of a cute, thoughtful comedy, check out Keeping Up with the Steins. If you want to skip straight to the awkward […]

Don’t Try This at Home! Firefighters Brace for 50 Shades of #Fail

Monday, February 16th, 2015 - by Stephen Green

Firefighters don’t just put out fires. They rescue cats from tall trees, they give safety lessons to school children, and sometimes they use hydraulic cutting equipment to remove penis rings. They expect to be doing more along the lines of that last item following the release of 50 Shades of Grey to movie screens: Firefighters […]

To paraphrase from Sun Tzu’s The Art of War, “To defeat your enemy you must know your enemy.” I kept this mantra in mind while compiling this comprehensive list of 10 criminal DO’s and DON’Ts, opening a window into their minds, bringing us one step closer to pinpointing the source of their brilliance. 10.

President Me: Adam Carolla Vs. the Scourge of Narcissism

Friday, February 6th, 2015 - by Mark Ellis

In President Me, Adam Carolla takes the pulse of the social contract, a pulse that is slackening. Narcissism is the sapping beast. Carolla sees an insidious minority that has turned out to be “assholes.” Predictably, the trait has infiltrated what is now known anachronistically as “the fabric of society.” The death of God, absent fathers, […]

The Incredible Shrinking Toilet Paper Square

Sunday, February 1st, 2015 - by Stephen Green

More evidence that inflation is real but increasingly hidden from consumers: Toilet paper squares, the individual sheets that connect to make each roll, were once 11.43 centimetres (4.5 inches) wide and the same long. That standard, however, has shifted, or at the very least loosened its grip on the industry, to a point where companies […]

4 More Examples Of Disinformation In Cracked.Com’s Walt Disney Parody

Friday, January 30th, 2015 - by Chris Queen

Last week I shared with you the examples of disinformation in the unfunny recent Cracked.Com parody of Walt Disney giving a TED Talk. I only got through a fraction of the video before I reached 2,000 words! So I went back to the video (I sacrificed so you don’t have to watch it) and found […]

5 Reasons Why Cracked‘s Parody of Walt Disney Is Nothing Like the Truth

Friday, January 23rd, 2015 - by Chris Queen

I enjoy good satire that really makes a point. The problem with satire is that, for it to be truly good and genuinely funny, the satire must find its basis in truth. Satire that isn’t based in facts doesn’t work and is generally unfunny. I’ll give you a recent example: over at the humor site […]

Adam Carolla: The Quintessential Counterculture Conservative?

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015 - by Mark Ellis

**** If, in 2002, your television viewing habits were dominated by Fox News, The Osbournes, and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, you may have missed out on the highlight of Adam Carolla’s early television career. He left Comedy Central’s The Man Show in 2003. Similarly, if you scrupulously avoid any relationship advice from Dr. Drew Pinsky […]
