In case you missed this week’s douchecanoe. The sex discrimination you don’t see. Unseen women behind douchecanoe’s Nobel prize. #distractinglysexy . Related: #15 is how I’m feeling now. Also this related: this is depressingly true.
Sesame St. is pretty awesome.
Why flexible work options are so important.
I want to tell all the middle-aged comedians complaining that colleges are too PC for stand-up comedy that that’s not the problem. The problem is that they’re out of touch and not funny or relevant. NPR actually had a couple of really great programs on how humor changes over time. One of them was a book review that gave examples of things that used to be hilarious to audiences but are now offensive or just not funny (think turn of the century cartoons– violence, like wife beating, used to be a lot more funny to people). The other spot they had is this new program that Billy Crystal and Josh Gad are doing– Billy Crystal, btw, I bet isn’t having the problem of not getting laughs at colleges. Because he doesn’t just rely on lame shock value for humor. Granted, the tv show sounds pretty terrible, but there’s a little clip in the interview of Crystal dying in front of a young audience because his jokes are lame for that generation (purposefully so) that really illustrates what is wrong with Seinfeld (and that dude I’ve never heard of who posted the same thing on HuffPo and maybe even a little bit Chris Rock).
