the funniest (in nothing but an ironical sense) thing about women posting colours for support for breast cancer awareness is that there is some new evidence that wearing bra’s for long periods of time could dramatically increases the risk breast cancer….Could this be the first case of Copy Pasta that is bad for your health???
Except for the breastpump one I also found them hilarious Chicks like Emma’s gotta learn that with a status like that you’re just setting yourself up for comments like Matthew’s – unless she blocks all her male friends.
Yes, and black people tend to make way more of it when they are the victims of a racist joke than white people. Mostly they just don’t have a good sense of humour though, I mean some blacks do, ok, but generally not. They are just that bit more touchy and sensitive – nothing wrong with it. I’m just saying.
I’m not saying that sexist jokes aren’t funny. As a woman, I can admit that I definitely laughed the first time I heard a variant of the women-must-stay-in-the-kitchen bit. But that was probably 10 years ago; all I’m saying is that I think some new material is needed!
Well I’m not German, but I’m Irish and I hear quite a few of those jokes. I just think it’s a bit of a double standard that racist jokes about white races are ok but not about other racial groups. Either some of it is ok or none of it is ok, and personally I prefer all of it being ok because like is much funnier that way.
They didn’t bother me. But they are so old and tired, and yeah, I’d say annoying now. However, I’m aware that my being female renders my opinion automatically “oversensetive”. *Shrug* There really is no winning here.
FWIW I do joke about men occasionally with my spouse. (Not often, because he actually is absurdly anti-gender stereotyping.) However, if I used the same joke every day I’m pretty sure it would get a little old.
Yes, ‘woman is a slave!’ and ‘are u having ur period?’ jokes were once funny. When you hear them everytime you disagree with a man (on the internet or IRL), it’s the man who makes himself look like an idiot. Because everyone knows those jokes are old as hell. It’s the fact that someone still uses old ones that makes me irritated, not the joke itself.
And yes, I’m a woman in the kitchen, I clean up and pleasure my man – since it is the mans job to bring us ( = me) money. I like my life
(oh yeah, jokes about men dont usually work, because most of the men would just laugh)
You’ve got to realize that half the time it’s not the joke that’s funny, it’s the reaction. Of course we’ve all head every chauvenistic period joke that can possibly be made, but what gets funnier every time is the women that can’t develop a sense of humour about such things.
Though, I do still find the whole bra colour Facebook status thing hilarious in that the point was meant to be that no girl should tell any guy what the colours meant, except some people clearly weren’t even able to manage that.
And then the guys started coming up with even shitter revenge groups, and made me even more ashamed than I already am to be a guy
@leequette – Most of my black friends find it hilarious when I use the N-word. Apparently lamebook does not share their sense of humour though, since one of my previous posts is awaiting moderation because I used said N-word in full. I’m sure they’ll delete it, but I can assure you the post was humourous and ensightful beyound your wildest dreams.
Yea yeah, all these jokes need to be carbon dated, I got the intense feeling of a vacuum of humour especially in regards to Jason and his comedy team. If anyone can make me laugh with material provided here I’ll consider you for the MacGuyver of lamebook award.
Ladies, smart fish don’t bite, so next time some chumP comes at you with any of these “gems” do your best to never ever mate with them, and spread the embargo to everyone you know, that way if everyone chimes in we can breed out this unfunny genetic defect within a generation.
I miss the days when the internet was filled with proper nerds like me, who knew they were pathetic and wasting their lives. Nowadays it’s all about the faux-sexism, and pretending to be some kind of macho guy.
Oh, for the days when these people didn’t even know what an internet was…
…but while we are having a crack at trying to ridicule women boys, how ’bout Kristin?
If her husband was to borrow her breast pump, she assumes there’s an equipotent chance of him using it on his tit OR perhaps dong, but she has no idea which one might potentially feel better for a guy. Yea guys are pretty weird, you’re totally right, one minute we are thinkin’ with our dicks, the next we are performing all the computational activity in the areola area. Crazy men.
as a woman with a pretty non-pc sense of humor, the kitchen jokes are getting really old. it’s really unoriginal, predictable, and yeah while the reactions can be funny, it doesn’t even get a reaction out of me anymore. i’m not offended, i just feel bad at the guy cracking the joke for just not being funny and amusing only people with the same boring, cooking cutter, “LOL VAGINAS BLEED THATS GROSS” sense of humor. think outside the box (no pun intended).
and women, stop doing the “why r men sew stupid…” jokes copy and pasted from a chain letter your idiot girlfriends probably forwarded. they are no more clever/funny than the dated cathy comics taped to your refrigerator door. yeah, women have come a long way, but being a dick and acting like we’re smarter or better than men is not cute; it’s asinine and untrue that one gender is ultimately better than the other. if you want to try to insult the male gender by being a sexist tool, you’d better be ready to get something sexist and (if the guy is original) probably hilarious back.
The fact is if you leave any kind of receptacle like a breast pump or an apple pie for that matter laying around the house, the guys will put it in there.
That’s the reality girls, so keep them stashed if you want to keep them semen free.
I don’t see why people think these people continue to think that these sexist “jokes” are funny. Just like “your mum” jokes, these lost their humour. I don’t understand why lamebook proceeds to post the same jokes in different context. It’s shameful on lamebook’s behalf.
Dear eric_benjamin, sexist jokes are funny, I admit that, but like every joke in this planet, they get old. I would, however, be glad to hear you tell some new sexist jokes. Maybe something that doesn’t have the words ‘woman’ and ‘kitchen’ in the same sentence.
I’ll never understand people moaning about the kitchen jokes. You are aware that the statuses weren’t posted for you, right? That the jokes are made by people who’ve never met each other and read by people who’ve never met each other? They’re not old. If another website chooses to go looking for jokes on that kitchen theme then of course they’re going to find jokes on the kitchen theme.
That is because familiarity allows a comfort level to say those things, whereas among strangers the intent of the speaker is not known. For example: I can call my mom a dirty cheap whore. But if you were to say that, well, I would expect you to pay her the $10 you guys agreed on.
This whole women are ‘slaves and should be in the kitchen’ thing was never funny….and to those people who say its all a bit of banter and it doesn’t really mean anything then I suggest you get real because as long as we think that its never going to change.
I probably wouldn’t mind the period/kitchen jokes so much if it weren’t for the fact that every guy I hear them from is actually pretty chauvinistic. I don’t overreact or anything, but they’re really not all that funny to me.
That said, the comment about lighting the fuse on a tampon is brilliant.
I’m over the “women belong in the kitchen” joke now too. The only people I can picture using it are sad little teenage boys (some possibly trapped in older men’s bodies).
The second one is very weird…but my husband did once offer his nipple to our baby in an exhausted desperate attempt to get him to sleep…our baby didn’t go for it fortnately, that would have been waaay too weird :/
I don’t mind a sexist joke, as long as it’s a joke…
I know some people who are genuine misogynists, one of whom posted continual “Man Laws”, dripping with deep-seeded disrespect for women. So, when I posted a sarcastic “Tool Law” a firestorm of a facebook fight broke out..
In the Emma one, it’s not the implication that women should be slaves to men that is funny. It’s that she, probably thinking how clever she was with her (equally sexist and boring, I might add) quote, still got owned by the simplest of retorts.
