    I knew someone named Khrystyan. Pronounced Christian. Just really wanted to make life more difficult for your child.

    I looked at his eyes in the thumbnail and thought, “This guy looks smart & funny.“ He did not disappoint. 👏 (Good call, Mo! 👍)

    That white male student may have gotten D's & F's, but he'll STILL end up being the black and Latino students' boss when they grow up. That's the nature of white male privilege.

      @Rabbles the Binx Productions True.. I didn't catch that. I tried to google it but after some research I think her special came out in 2013

      @Rabbles the Binx Productions Good catch. No idea myself as to when Schumer first told it. This is one of those ideas that multiple people could have had, parallel thinking or whatever, unlike other bits that comedians have absolutely stolen from someone else. (Broke my heart to learn that Robin Williams was infamous as a joke thief.)

      Did she make that joke before or after she and her husband realized that by naming their baby Gene Attell Schumer, they'd insured he'd be called "genital" all his life?

    I know a girl back home whose Mom wanted to name her "Ashley" but wanted her little precious angel to be more special than everyone else. So, for the last 20 years, this poor girl has had to go through life saddled with "Aschleigh".
