As you complete your last-minute Thanksgiving grocery shopping today, you might find yourself in bewilderment over the recent released statistic that the average cost of the Thanksgiving meal for ten people is $49.04.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Some of it is actually funny because it is true ;) Thought we all could use a bit of a smile before the holiday stress really hits.

At Swords’ Point: Humor As Weapon | The Comics Journal

At Swords’ Point: Humor As Weapon | The Comics Journal | Herstory | Scoop.it

Humor is a big joke on us all. It’s one huge paradox. While it seems unconditionally benevolent, stimulating laughter and good feeling, it is often cruel, destructive, and manipulative.


So says Betty Swords. And she should know. For over twenty-five years, starting in 1955, she was a professional humorist. She sold her cartoons to the major magazine markets, including Saturday Evening Post, Redbook, Good Housekeeping, Ladies Home Journal, Changing Times. She also produced a considerable quantity of humorous writing for such publications as McCall’s, Modern Maturity, Christian Science Monitor, and others. And beginning in 1976, Swords taught college courses in the power of humor and lectured widely on the subject.


...And then I realized that the punching bag was always a woman. “Marriage is seen as bad,” she went on, recollecting the experience as we talked on the patio in back of her Denver home in June 1995. And she cited examples of one-liners to prove her point:


Married life is great—it’s my wife I can’t stand.


He was unlucky in both his marriages—his first wife left him. And his second one won’t.


A bachelor’s last words—I do.


“Marriage is seen as horrible because it meant that the man had lost his freedom,” she continued.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Along with a profile on a great woman, there are well-articulated and documented issues of gender bias that are still around today.

A 4-Year-Old Girl Asked A Lesbian If She's A Boy. She Responded The Awesomest Way Possible.

Ash Beckham is awesome. She also happens to be gay, and she thinks it's hard for straight people coming out of the closet.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

This not just about being gay -- it's about the hard conversations we all face, the fact that not having those conversations is killing us, that living with any sorts of stress and fear is being closet.

Most jokes are bashing someone. It's pretty rare to find someone who is truly just funny. Either they are bashing some group of people: fat people, short people, women, etc or they are putting themselves down in an attempt to get people to laugh with them but not at them.

‘We Saw Your Junk,’ a Boob Song Parody

‘We Saw Your Junk,’ a Boob Song Parody | Herstory | Scoop.it

In an effort to "even the playing field" after Seth MacFarlane's "We Saw Your Boobs" Oscars opener "made everyone uncomfortable," YouTuber Kevin Gisi presents "We Saw Your Junk." Now that we've reached the parody stage, our Internet grief cycle is complete. (Until the "that's sexist against men" backlash begins, at least.)

Is parody payback OK? When it illustrates it's point, perhaps...

Getting Bangs Will Change Your Life, Apparently

Getting Bangs Will Change Your Life, Apparently | Herstory | Scoop.it
The most intense source of my hair anxiety, though, is whether or not to get bangs. Girls with fringe seem to always be walkin' on sunshine, seem to just know how to wear those weird scarves that are really just a loop of fabric, and seem to never have to worry about visible forehead pimples. I guess, in my head, girls with bangs conflate into the unofficial spokeswoman of the power of the hair style, Zooey Deschanel.

 

Check out this infomercial parody for bangs on YouTube, starring funny ladies and BUST contributors Giulia Rozzi and Brandy Barber. The characters' LIVES ARE CHANGED by their new bangs.
