So Sorry, So Bad & Debating the Dildo: Amy Schumer Nails it Again & Again. {Adult}

 amy schumer reasonable chub

Amy Schumer is my soul mate.

I’ve never met her, I don’t know her middle name and I have no idea if she drinks coffee or tea in the morning, but otherwise I’m mad for her.

She makes feminism funny, and that’s no joke.

There should be a special girl scout badge for that.

I’m binge-eating her shows like others did with Breaking Bad or Orange is the New Black. I was late to the party but I’m here now.

I share her video clips below for those of us who:

  • apologize to furniture for bumping it
  • step over pets or bugs rather than having them move for us
  • want to have sex even in our “as is” state or if we’re just “average”
  • feel guilty for being impolite to the jack-ass harassing us
  • have a dildo
  • feel torn for having for having a bite of cake even though we run non-profits, marathons, parent solo or save kittens and puppies and the environment
  • have sex even without a full waxing or shaving the pits
  • are unsure if it’s okay to take up space on the canvas, page, screen or planet. Sorry… was that too much. I’m sorry I’m so bad.

If you’ve never been to the all-you-can-laugh-at Amy Schumer buffet, put on a bib.

She helps me laugh at myself and the world we live in while changing it at the same time. These are short, on point and hilarious.

I thought of last week’s “I’m Sorry” episode today while driving a neighbor to Lowes. I apologized for running out of gas, for stopping to get gas, for wasting her time because I didn’t already have gas. Then, I apologize for getting “super gas” because they were out of regular gas. I didn’t want to drive to a different gas station. I apologized for being lazy.

Sorry. Sorry. Sorry.

For what?

“I’m sorry” is a filler so often for so many of us. Schumer showed it in a clip last week when a man was leading a panel of innovators. There’s a Nobel prize winner, a Puliter Prize winner, the head of a school for child refugees in Rwanda and one of the lead “scientists on pre-natal neural peptides and their effects on memory and learning.”

All female.

Did they speak about their genius accomplishments or success?

Did they talk about balancing work and home life?

Did they brainstorm or share with the audience what inspired them?

No, they were each so overtaken with the routine and incessant need to say “I’m sorry” that sorry was the only sorry dribble communicated.

The four accomplished panelists apologize for asking for water or refusing coffee, for answering a question first or not answering it completely enough, for how they interact with one another or the people asking questions, for being too helpful or not helpful enough. They apologize for every little thing they say, do or fail to ay or do. They are overly graciouss, kind and helpful to the point of being ineffective and inaudible.

And funny.

Ouch, right?

Seriously, they apologized about 50 times, and although it’s comedy, it is also an accurate (albeit exaggerated) look at the tendency to apologize for everything over nothing.

Maybe Schumer isn’t actually my soul mate but my feminist funny waker upper. Maybe she’s an epsom salt laughing us awake.

I’m so not sorry for sharing these!

*The full “I’m Sorry” video isn’t available yet, but this will gives a pretty good idea of what’s to come.
