My son just pitched me a Twitter joke:"Why do we call it the Sun instead of a space heater?" Like to have him adopted, RT to have him killed— Ken Jennings (@KenJennings) April 8, 2017

@manwhohasitall flips the constant stream of advice fed to women on the internet toward a male audience… the results are both hilarious and kinda shocking. This account points out that female directed editorial content that seems silly or inane, might actually have a sexist slant.

Charlene addresses the topics that many others shy away from, but approaches them through the lens of humor. As a recovering sex and love addict, Charlene turns her pain into self deprecating comedy, and frankly, commiserating with her can be fun.

This Parks and Rec actor and Upright Citizens Brigade alum is like your dorky friend who just says exactly what he is thinking and most of the time the result is hilarious. Often he calls us all out on our ridiculous behavior, such as our Netflix usage and how our short attention spans hinder our writing capacity. But he makes it funny.
