I’ve been watching Louis CK’s show on Netflix, because I don’t want to get sucked into something and my limit on Louie is about two episodes. I can’t binge on it for exactly the same reason can’t binge on Tequila: I usually know it’s too much before I actually start to get sick.

If you’re a woman, engaging willfully with the world of stand up comedy is like choosing to pick up a series of poisonous snakes. The most you can hope for is that it won’t bite you this time. Oh, this one isn’t so bad, OH GOD FUCK NO! One time I dozed off while listening to a Mike Bribiglia station on Pandora and woke up to Daniel Tosh. I can never unhear that shit, and I don’t mean that idiomatically, I mean that I will carry with me the information that I gleaned in the 15 seconds that it took me to stumble to the computer and shut it off for the rest of my life.

Every time some new poll comes out talking about how Jon Stewart has become our most trusted news anchor, the reaction on the comments threads (where everyone is civil, and has a reasonable opinion to add to the discussion), generally goes this way:

– “Yeah, I gotta agree, I get a lot of my news from the Daily Show.”
– “UM HELO, JON STEWART IS NOT A ANCHOR, HES A COMEDIAN WITH AN LIBERAL BIAS!”
– “Stewart would be the first to say he’s just a comedian, but the show tends to take shots at all sides.”
– “IM SO SICK OF JOHN STUARRT!!! OVERATED!!!!!!!!!!!”
– “Who wants to see upskirt pics of Mischa Barton?”

And so on in that fashion.
