“Wouldn’t it be great if instead of Frank Underwood, Kevin Spacey’s character on House of Cards it was Christopher Guest as Harlan Pepper? He would turn to the camera and would start naming nuts.”—Amy G. has been typing transcripts of HWYW and I’m in awe of her. It’s like she’s showing me how much I’ve written in the past few years, by writing it out for me. Bless and keep her.
“Yoko Ono is delightful and every time somebody over 35 or 40 makes a joke about how Yoko stinks, or Yoko’s bad at singing, or Yoko’s crazy, or Yoko broke up the Beatles… Every time that happens, a child is born and that child will help to overthrow the baby boomer hubris-fueled patriarchal institution that perpetuates jokes that aren’t funny and that just come from false premises SUCH AS ‘Yoko Ono broke up the Beatles’, SUCH AS ‘The Doors were good’, SUCH AS ‘Eric Clapton seemed like a good guy you’d just want to hang out with and hear his tunes and his stories.’ And that’s all FIDDLE FADDLE!”—Julie Klausner, How Was Your Week #151 (via dianaprosperity)
What about the segment “Ask a Squirter”? Do people like “Ask a Squirter”? Oh my God, “Ask a Squirter” is a triumph. People were so shocked. For the first time ever in three seasons, Fuse ran a parental advisory “this show is for mature audiences only” warning right before the segment — not at the top of the show, but right before the segment. Everyone should know that it was your idea. I have never been more proud.
