    Every Magazine Article About Women With Jobs

    Did you know that women have joined the workplace? Many studies in recent years have confirmed this to be true. But can you even imagine your wife or mother with a budget report in one hand and that week’s laundry in the other?

    Modern women in our fast paced world face a unique quandary: Can they have it all? That is, a husband, babies, plus a high-powered career involving some sort of briefcase? Is it reasonable for females—roughly 50% of American workers at the time of this writing— to participate in professional settings alongside males despite not having a penis and probably having kids? With the skeptical shrug of news magazines during slow news cycles, this article would like to cast a spotlight on these contemporary challenges.

    The Guy Version of Engagement Excitement

    When a lady tells another lady she’s engaged, there’s that squeal. And then the questions: “Eeeee I’m so happy for you! How’d he do it? Where’d he do it? Tell me everything!” We know this trope. We know guys don’t do it. What do guys do, beyond something fake in three-camera sitcoms?

    If you want that squeal between dudes, tell your friend you just started watching some serial drama like Breaking Bad.

    “Whoa, awesome. When’d you start? How far along are you? Netflix or DVDs? That’s awesome. You’re going to love it. I’m just so happy for you.”

    Games too. “Just started Skyrim.” “AAAAH that’s so great! I’m so excited for you. How are you playing? Rogue? Brute? Aaaah the next few weeks are going to be great! Let me see your armor.”

    Henry Thinks Things: Sally Ride, First!

    Was Sally Ride the first gay person in space?

    That’d be pretty dope. Being a first. That’s why people yell that shit on the internet so much, right?

    I bet when she arrived in space, she yelled “First!” And then whispered “gay lady in space.”

    And lady in general, sure.

    Whatever man, the joke is pretending Sally Ride treated space like a YouTube video.

    2/10 Would Not Bang: 4chan’s Funniest New Meme

    There’s this running joke on the internet about an acne-scarred C.H.U.D. (or Butthurt Dweller) finding fault with any and all images of women in order to alleviate the self-hatred and loneliness that goes along with being a neckbearded netizen — “I can’t find a decent woman, not because I’m just awful in every way, but because all the women in my town have such big foreheads and stubby toes. Disgusting!”

    This mindset has borne a new meme, “2/10 Would Not Bang,” in which 4chan users post images of flawless women and compete against each other to find fault in increasingly creative ways, and then dismiss them with the Comic Book Guy-channeling verdict: 2/10, Would Not Bang.

    Dr. Pepper TEN: Women Can Suck It.

    In 1947, a young Fred Pepper graduated from medical school. His only desire was to use his medical knowledge to create a soft drink that tasted like gargoyle saliva with bubbles in it. Soon Dr. Pepper found the 23 perfect ingredients, and with a little carbonation his bubble soda pop concoction was complete.

    Skip ahead to present time and we find a struggling soda company desperate to attract more people to drink their beverage. Other companies had created knock-off drinks and did it without a medical degree. The good doctor knew two things. Woman aren’t stupid enough to drink bubbly gargoyle saliva, and men are trying to cut down on unnecessary calories so they can eat more meat without consequence.

    Dr. Pepper went back to his lab and created a low calorie, low sugar drink strong enough for a woman, but pH balanced for a man. He calls it Dr. Pepper TEN… and women aren’t allowed to drink it.
