I’d like for you to meet Kevin. Kevin likes to think of himself as an open-minded person. He likes to think of himself as that because he’s not actually like that at all.

Todd Philips tried really hard to get me not to see “Joker.”  He had interviews where he went on and on about how “woke culture is killing comedy.” It’s not Todd, sorry we don’t want to see Shane Gillis tape his eyes slanted to play Andrew Yang on SNL. Woke Culture isn’t killing comedy...

Gender reveal parties are an unnecessary fad that delegitimize the existence of transgender people by supporting the notion that there are only two genders. These parties are commonly expensive, sexist, overly sexual and potentially dangerous.  A gender reveal party is a celebration where expect...

If you’ve watched the Pittsburgh Steelers play within the last five years, then you know that the two most hated athletes in this city are Tom Brady and Vontaze Burfict. For those that don’t watch the NFL, Burfict is the reason why the Steelers only have six Super Bowls instead of seven.  He’s also the reason why Antonio Brown has gone...
