the always reliable bee does what she does best…
Men are afraid that women will laugh at them – as the evergreen Margaret Atwood quote goes – whereas women are afraid that men will kill them.
Women can’t do much about the latter but over the years men have tried to do plenty about the former.
A favourite tactic has been to diminish funny women because that’s apparently easier than men changing their own laughworthy behaviour.
Christopher Hitchens’ 2007 essay Why Women Aren’t Funny has been discredited a million times over by female comedians far more self-aware than he ever was – yet the message persists that a funny woman is an anomaly – niche – offputting.
And also – while I have you here: Men – I’m sorry to break this to you – but your dick is ugly.
No one wants to see your dick in any context.
Even the straightest – horniest woman who loves you the most is hoping you can get it inside her without her having to look at it.
So definitely don’t show it to strangers.
Don’t text pictures of it to people and don’t whip it out at film festivals.
Your dick is objectively the worst thing about you.
If you want to send a lady a picture of something – try your nipple or a pinkie toe or a favorite mole!

Samantha Bee – a 47-year-old Canadian-born dual-citizen of Canada and the US – has been called the ‘comedian of the resistance’ in the Donald Trump era.
It is not a position she applied for nor one she is especially happy to have assumed.
When her weekly topical show Full Frontal With Samantha Bee first aired on the US cable channel TBS in February 2016 – in the process making her the first woman to host a late-night political satire – she imagined she would be overseeing the run-in to a Hillary Clinton presidency.
Then from her perspective the unthinkable happened.
Trump’s victory has forced all the late-night comedy shows to take stock – but it is Bee, formerly a correspondent on The Daily Show for a record 12 years who seems to have adapted best.
She is withering in her dismay at ‘that pint of flat orange Fanta’ as she’s called Trump and ‘the batshit telenovela’ that is his administration.
The ‘Full Frontal’ host read parts of Joshua Green’s new book – a tale of how Bannon rode gamergate to GOP victory.
Usually late-night comedians ironically read books so that their audiences don’t have to.
But on Wednesday Samantha Bee reviewed one of the more important books about the 2016 election.
For her book club ‘Ladies Who Book’ Bee took a deep dive into Joshua Green’s “Devil’s Bargain,” an account of presidential advisor Steve Bannon’s dirty dirty path to the White House.
‘Steve has been out of public view lately’ Bee said during one of her monologues Wednesday ‘which makes sense because if I could suck my own cock I probably would never leave my bedroom either.
But since I can’t – I spend my time reading’.
