Friday Funny: Birth Control on the Bottom

I have already shared my beloved Target Women ad compilations with you. While this is very similar, it is also hilarious. “It’s tough to be a busy woman in postracial America.” Unfortunately the youtube video is gone, so here is the Yahoo version: Birth Control on the Bottom

Friday Funny: More Convos with My 2 Year Old

OK, so maybe it’s cheating, because I already featured Convos with My 2 Year Old last week. But these are my two favorite episodes, so I thought I should share them with you. This first one is one of my favorites because of my four-year-old son, Asher. He hates tags, socks, coats, underwear, shin guards…he

Friday Funny: Suri’s Burn Book

Friday already? I hereby dedicate today’s funny to my friend Kristin, who is extremely dedicated to Suri’s Burn Book. The blog spoofs the celebrity-child voice of Suri Cruise, daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. It’s full of snarkiness, which is my favorite part, and celebrity gossip and mockery, which I suspect is Kristin’s favorite

Friday Funny: The Lizzie Bennett Diaries

I have been on a bit of a Victorian-literature-based movie binge lately, inspiring today’s Friday Funny. Not long ago, a friend introduced me to the Lizzie Bennett diaries. If the title of this video blog rings no bells for you, you were probably not an English lit major. But I will tell you anyway: they

Friday Funny: The Oatmeal

I have posted several parental-angst posts lately, so here’s something a little more fun for your Friday afternoon. I love the Oatmeal. The comic, not the food.* I mean, what’s not to like about a site whose categories are “Cats,” “Food,” “Animals,” “Grammar,” and “Tech”? It helps that I also enjoy being sarcastic and drawing

Friday Funny: Women Laughing Alone with Salad

Not far removed from Sarah Haskins’s Target Women media series is: Women Laughing Alone with Salad. Somehow jokes about this have been the theme of the week. In fact, one day I really did laugh alone with salad. It was marvelous.   As if that were not funny enough, someone made this spoof: Tumblr Women

Friday Funny: Cat Bounce

Today’s Friday Funny is brought to you by randomness. It won’t take much time to look at, but you may want to spend a little time on it. It’s silly enough on its own, but you can also interact with it. http://cat-bounce.com/ This is funny on your phone, but it’s even funnier on your computer

Friday Funny: Target Women

Happy Friday! Today’s selection comes from a series I love, narrated by Sarah Haskins. She compiles ads that target women, and then makes fun of them. If you have ever been irritated by how the media treats men, this one’s for you. Target Women: Doofy Husbands: (Note: a sad thing happened, which was that the

Friday Funny: Cake Wrecks

If you have not yet encountered the blog Cake Wrecks, you must immediately stop what you are doing and scroll through the magic. The writer describes it thus: “A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate – you name it.” Scroll through it enough, and you’ll see giving-birth cakes, tons

Friday Funny: Sac Earthquake 2013

As  many of you know, a devastating earthquake tore through the Sacramento region last night. My chair was wobbled, and the pans hanging in the kitchen clanged together a little bit. Most importantly, my cat was really nervous. Or maybe she was just hungry. I hope this photo can serve as as reminder of what
