This is your place to talk about the TV, movies, music, books and art that are thoroughly entertaining you.
I'm not saying this to be snarky or mean or insulting, but I think I've become immune to vagina jokes.
They don't make me laugh anymore. I don't know when it happened. Or why.
But I'll tell you when I noticed it. During last night's MTV Movie Awards show with host Rebel Wilson when she said this line about Lena Dunham.
Setting up the category for "sexiest beard," Rebel said: "Nominees for that include Ben Affleck for 'Argo,' Daniel Day-Lewis for 'Lincoln' and Lena Dunham’s vagina."
After a few audience members audibly gasped, Wilson responded: "What? It’s been on a lot of faces."
My reaction to both lines? "Meh."
And yes, I feel the same way about the overuse of dick just to say dick jokes, if you were wondering.
Nowadays what makes me laugh tends to involve almost nothing R-rated because a joke that does not involve a dick or a vagina actually SURPRISES me.
I wasn't even offended, honestly. My brain almost read it as simply predictable noise.
It's like when I watch comedic roasts nowadays, I find that the people who make me laugh are often the cleanest of the bunch.
I guess perhaps I should be offended at the question of sexism in such a joke. Is Rebel implying that Lena slept her way into her position?
But what bothers me most of all is just how overused these kinds of jabs are nowadays. And yes -- including by myself, very lazily.
What do you think? Am I alone on this?
Did you laugh at this joke? Do you think Lena was offended? Did you think Rebel did a good job?
My favorite part of the MTV Movie Awards show was when a drunk Aubrey Plaza tried to grab the comedic legend award from Will Ferrell then later tweeted: "thanks for the advice @kanyewest went better than planned! #mtvmovieawards #chrisbosh #thesecret."
But that's just because I like jokes about "The Secret" -- and anything that seems remotely unscripted during awards shows.
