(via Do We Need To Be Touching? (And 36 Other NYC Etiquette Lessons))

These are great, and this one also happens to be almost my biggest pet peeve. Whether on the sidewalk or in the mall, get out of my fucking way. I can’t stand it when people amble.

LOL, wait 5 seconds, New Yorkers. You aren’t as important as you think.

“I don’t pretend to be any expert on communism or any other kind of a political ‘ism. But you can put me down as an expert at being a colored American, with thirty years of experience at it. And just like any other colored person with sense enough to look around him and understand what he sees, I know that life in these United States can be mighty tough for people who are a little different from the majority—in their skin color, or the way they worship God, or the way they spell their names.”

“50 years ago, America’s biggest employer was General Motors, where workers made the modern equivalent of $50 dollars an hour. Today, America’s biggest employer is Walmart, where the average wage is $8 dollars an hour. Which means you can share a room in a transient hotel with a drifter who cuts his toenails with a machete. And Walmart released their annual report this month, and in it was the fact that most of what Walmart sells is food. And most of their customers need food stamps to pay for it. Meanwhile, Walmart’s owners are so absurdly rich that one of them, Alice Walton, spent over a billion dollars building an art museum in Bentonville, Arkansas, 500 miles away from the nearest person who ever would want to look at art. And she said about it, “For years I’ve been thinking about what we can do as a family that can really make a difference.” How about giving your employees a raise, you deluded nitwit? Take the case of Belle Knox. She’s the Duke University freshman who was recently outed as a porn star. But she doesn’t have the typical porn star biography… No, she’s a level-headed articulate 18-year-old majoring in women’s studies. So people are saying, why the porn? Because Duke costs $61 grand a year! Since 1980, college tuition has increased 600% above the inflation rate. I’m surprised they’re not all doing porn. … This is what the Paul Ryans of the world don’t understand — that this is not a country of lazy people and good people, so much as it is a country of rich people and desperate people. Do you know how much Americans owe in student loans? $1.3 trillion dollars. We’re going to have to sell a lot of ass to pay that tab.”

Real spite for the poor wrapped up neatly in theoretical income equality advocacy. Fuck off.

this photo of Jason Segal as DFW is going to stay open in a tab for the rest of the day so that I can click back over to it whenever I need a good lol


Jesse Eisenberg nails it as Chuck Barris.

Gerard Depardieu and Andre the Giant if they mated.

The world would be a better place if Jason Segal went full method and ended himself.

Wow, that escalated quickly.

If there’s one thing that will get DFW fans up in arms, it’s everything.
