Hundreds Of Thousands Of Used Condoms Were Washed And Resold, Which Checks Out For 2020

Hundreds Of Thousands Of Used Condoms Were Washed And Resold, Which Checks Out For 2020

We’ve clung to the same few phrases to describe this trashcan fire of a year, and they’ve been so thoroughly exhausted by the media, emails from brands dropping in to say just because it’s the end times doesn’t mean you can’t still buy their shit, and probably all bosses at the start of every company Zoom meeting, that at this point I involuntarily brace when I know they’re coming. It was fine at the beginning of 2020, but it’s September now and I’d honestly rather stab my eyes out with a pencil than read the words “unprecedented times” or “new normal” ever again. That’s why I think the new go-to phrase should be: Things are bad.

It gets right to the point, most importantly we’re not all sick of it, and it doubles as a handy measuring tool. Allow me to explain. “Unprecedented times” is pretty broad and open-ended, you can’t ask, “On a scale of one to ten, how unprecedented?” Unprecedented is just…. unprecedented. “Things are bad” though? That is something we can quantify. If I opened with, “Things are bad,” and you, the live studio audience, asked, “How bad are they?” I could answer that question.

And I will.

Because, folks, things are so bad.

Things are so bad that this morning I was scrolling through news stories over a cup of coffee and I read the headline VIETNAM POLICE BUST RING SELLING RECYCLED CONDOMS and didn’t even bat an eye. I actually had to scroll by two more articles about it before I was like, alright, let’s check this out.

Jesus. Okay. So, Vietnam police shut down this massive operation in which an entire warehouse staff of people were cleaning used condoms, repackaging them, and then selling them as new. The police confiscated roughly 345,000 used condoms (horrifying image in itself) and the warehouse manager said the shipments came monthly from some unknown, mystery source. “How did they pass them off as new?” You might be asking yourself. Well! After they boiled the used condoms and dried them, they rolled them back into shape on a wooden penis. After reading all of this, my only thoughts were 1. Did they buy the wood dick or did they make it themselves, and 2. Eh, at least it’s eco friendly.

At least it’s eco friendly??

WHO MADE THE WOODEN PENIS???

There is only one appropriate reaction to a story like ‘PEOPLE ARE MASS COLLECTING USED CONDOMS AND WASHING THEM FOR RESALE’ and that is, “WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK.” But 2020 has not only worn me down and turned me into such a weathered, jaded, husk of a person that I read that and went “PAH! That’s nothing,” it’s been such a toothpaste-and-orange-juice year that, unfortunately but unsurprisingly, that wasn’t even the worst thing I read today. Hundreds of thousands of condoms in circulation have already been used? Are they also sentient and here to destroy humanity? No? Then that’s fine. That’s how bad things are.

This Woman’s Musical Impressions Are So Good I Suspect Witchcraft

This Woman’s Musical Impressions Are So Good I Suspect Witchcraft

Like all forms of art, comedy is subjective. We’ve all got our own personal taste, some folks enjoy deadpan one-liners, some prefer slapstick and fart jokes, some people even like sitcoms with laugh tracks. Those people need a lot of help, but that’s not what we’re here to discuss. There is one thing, though, that comedy lovers of all sorts can come together on and agree that, yes, this rules: good impressions.

Impressions are really, really hard to do well, as I’m sure we all know because we’ve all definitely attempted a few, and there’s not a single dad on this earth who doesn’t have a half-baked Arnold or Sylvester ready to go at a moment’s notice. Nailing someone’s speech pattern and intonation and capturing all the subtle nuances that make their voice theirs is no small task on its own, but imagine trying to add singing on top of that. If done well, impersonations of singers can be straight-up mesmerizing to watch (and super addictive which is why I can’t search “Jimmy Fallon wheel of musical impressions” on YouTube anymore while I’m working), and this is definitely one of those performances.

Rachel Harper is a Welsh writer, actor, and —you guessed it— top shelf impressionist. In a video she tweeted Sunday, Rachel sings the absolute bop that is “WAP” by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, and she doesn’t just do it in the style of one celebrity, no no.

She busts out a whole twelve different impressions, and she does it flawlessly.

Watching Rachel transition from a perfect Dolly Parton to a perfect Adele to a perfect Shakira honestly broke my brain a little bit. I have no idea how she did it, but there’s gotta be some sorcery involved. Like, there’s no way she doesn’t have a glowing shell necklace that she uses to capture the voices of famous singers. It’s either that or she got all of these celebrities to touch a magic basketball from space and sucked out their powers that way. Those are the only logical explanations.

We’re happy to announce that coronavirus has not derailed our plans for the annual Pervert Cruise!! It will set sail next week as scheduled.

The Pervert Cruise is a vital part of the US economy that must take place even if it will have a higher death toll than the Iraq war!

If you wanna expose yourself to COVID-19 in the worst possible environment while spreading it to over a dozen Island Nations, then this is the cruise for you! Congress gave us three trillion dollars in bailout money, and we put it all into building the tallest cruise ship of all time. 780 stories of fun that all fall over with just the slightest gust of wind!

Let our crew members strap you into little pig mass and oil up your little piggy bodies until you squeal like dying swine waiting for the sweet release of the slaughter house. Also – we need your help. Call your senator now and ask them to support the smoke on the water act, making it legal for us to set our cruise ships on fire at our discretion!

Don’t forget to take a dip in our pool that’s filled with the tears of all the employees, we forced to come back to work. (To all Circus Cruise Lines employees, we thank you for your service, and we’ll give each of you the sea burial, you useless peasants deserve!) and of course it wouldn’t be a Perverts Cruise without all the ships pipes bursting as soon as we set sail, giving everyone the opportunity to bang while the hallways fill with sewage.

This cruise is on the same ship that James Cameron plans to use to shoot his next film “Titanic 2 Avatar 5.” That’s right. This time the Avatars are on the Titanic.

Feel free to use our waiters as human tissues at any of our five star restaurants on board!

What’s our final destination? The Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch, which Circus Cruise Lines has purchased and renamed “the Pacific Ocean Garbage Resort and Mass Grave.”

Rejoice, ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Season 6 Is Coming To Netflix This October


The 72nd Emmy Awards ceremony took place this past Sunday, and it wasn’t just any ol’ Emmys night. For starters, due to the coronavirus pandemic the night was run a little differently than previous years. Usually the Staples Center would be packed end-to-end with nominees and all sorts of celebrities, but in order to stay within social distancing guidelines and keep everyone safe, the only people in the audience were cardboard cutouts.

Well, cardboard cutouts and Jason Bateman, for a brief moment. Jason — it’s gotta be tough to be a solo audience, you did great, my man.

Rejoice, ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Season 6 Is Coming To Netflix This October YouTube screenshot | ABC

On a much happier note, this year’s ceremony was also a night of breaking records and making history. Schitt’s Creek swept up all seven comedy awards, as well as two Creative Arts Emmys last week, making it not only the most decorated Canadian comedy, but also breaking the record for most awards one for a single season by any show. Moira Rose was right, Awards truly is the best season.

The good news doesn’t just stop there, though! The day after Schitt’s Creek cleaned house at the Emmys, the long-awaited Netflix release date for the final (and clearly fantastic) season was announced. IT’S SOON. IT’S SO SOON.

Season six hits Netflix on October 7 — which is only two weeks away.

So mark your calendars, schedule a reminder (or five) in your phone, and while we wait, please enjoy this thoroughly wholesome supercut of Sarah Levy (Twyla) reacting to every Schitt’s Creek win.

Political Strategy From a Mobile HQ

Political Strategy From a Mobile HQ

The best politicians move like sharks, they never stay in one spot for too long (physically). A campaign HQ that’s cemented into the earth by a foundation, load bearing beams, and the same view outside the window can have a direct negative impact on staffers. Some of the best ideas are borne out of an RV on the go in nature—and once snack privileges are reinstated.

Johnno and Michael Try Girlfriends

OMG – Johnno and Michael have GIRLFRIENDS!! YAY!!

Oh – and it gets better: THEY’RE ALL MOVING IN TOGETHER!!

And things are off to a good start: Johnno’s significant other surprises him with a new pair of pants, and Michael’s partner shows him the benefits of an air purifier. Everything is going great, until…

Movie night.

Uh-oh…

Picking out what to watch is already difficult enough when you’re alone, but trying to pick one film that’ll please four people – MADNESS.

For a moment, the potential movie-mishap crisis is averted when Jenna and Georgia suggests Hope Floats (staring Sandra Bullock!) and everyone is into it… except Michael.

Johnno and Michael Try Girlfriends

Once Michael speaks out, Johnno agrees, and the two make the unfortunate mistake of critiquing Sandra Bullock’s performance in the film. Turns out, Jenna and Georgia are HUGE ride-or-die Sandra Bullock fans go ape-shit on the boys.

Should we have sympathy for Johnno and Michael being so brutally attached by their girlfriends? Honestly…. no. If the duo were truly good boyfriends, they would have been very aware of Jenna and Georgia’s *probably unhealthy* obsession with all things Sandra Bullock (and would have been more thoughtful about how they spoke about the adored actress).

ABOUT JOHNNO AND MICHAEL TRY

In this series, Johnno and Michael try things. The two aren’t always successful and (often) hilariously fail, but hey – at least they’re having fun!

Say, Did You Remember It’s The 21 Of September? THIS GUY DID

Say, Did You Remember It’s The 21 Of September? THIS GUY DID

Today might not be an officially recognized holiday, or even a stupid made up holiday like National Hot Dog Day (which, by the way, enough), but it is a most holiday day indeed. In case you haven’t checked your calendars yet or you’re just uncultured, it’s September 21. Otherwise known as…

The twentY-first ooooof Sep-tem-BA

Earth, Wind & Fire Day, babyyyyyyy!

And, honestly, bumping “September” on repeat is the only thing that has given me even a crumb of serotonin this whole year. Well, actually, that and Demi Adejuyigbe.

Demi is a comedian, one-third of the show Everything’s Great!, and a screenwriter on The Good Place, among other shows. Evidently, he is ridiculously funny and talented. Since 2016, every year on this date he’s been releasing videos of himself dancing to his own remix of the song that cuts the whole thing down to only the parts that say, “The twenty-first of September,” while wearing a grey t-shirt that also says September 21. Listen, when you have to explain it it doesn’t sound that great, but it is. It is so, so great.

Each September video became more complicated and more of a production than the last, with this year’s (video number five) truly outdoing all the rest. The balloons! The costume change!

He literally put “September 21” on a billboard, got on a truck, and shot confetti out of a trombone! OUT OF A TROMBONE!

A Gentleman’s Guide To Sleeping With Another Gentleman’s Wife

A Gentleman’s Guide To Sleeping With Another Gentleman’s Wife

When sleeping with your wife, it is imperative to maintain certain societal standards. The same rules apply when sleeping with the wife of a fellow gentleman.


By keeping your eyes open at social functions and reputable soirees, locate the married woman you most desire to sleep with in a secretive manner.


Introduce yourself to the woman and let it be known through heavy flirtation, arm touching, and eyebrow raising that you are interested in the ultimate transgression.


Send the woman a formal request to engage in an affair via handwritten letter, candy gram, or tasteful dick pic.


Have your secretary inform the woman’s gentleman-husband that you are sleeping with his wife and request that he not be present for the intercourse.


If he inquires about the availability of your own wife, let him know if she is currently seeing any other gentlemen, and if she has an adequate schedule to participate in an affair of her own.


Meet the woman and her servant at a prearranged location, often a hotel.


Have your servants undress you in front of each other, placing your clothes neatly on the hotel bed. Take a moment to stare at each other’s naked bodies, taking in the sight of the forbidden flesh.


Consume an alcoholic beverage, so as to either lessen or heighten any remaining feelings of guilt.


Using an abrasive pumice stone, have your servants vigorously scrub you and the woman’s skin, ensuring any and all lingering skin flakes of married partners has been removed.


Inform servants they may retire to the hotel bathroom until you have completed your act of indiscretion.


Stand atop the bed. Hold each other’s hands and say, “We shall now engage in a sexual act of indecency. May our bodies be free and our hearts intoxicated in the spirit of betrayal.”


Screw like vodka-addled rabbits.


Smoke a cigarette. Call your wife and ask her if she needs anything from the grocery store. She will understand this to mean you have just ejaculated into the vagina of another woman, and she should not expect sexual intercourse for the next ten hours.


Instruct your servant to call the front desk and have the maids informed that sexual fluids have been released upon the mattress.


If you wish to continue the affair, have your secretary let the woman know in a detailed sexual message, highlighting future acts you would enjoy completing with her as well as emphasizing how much you enjoyed her company.


Return to work and remind your servant that if he or she says anything they are fired and you will ruin them.


EMMY Snub: Gulliver’s Menagerie

Hey everyone, the Emmys are almost here, and once again they snubbed the greatest show on television: Gulliver’s Menagerie.

Gulliver’s Menagerie just aired it’s eighth and final season on the brand new streaming platform Goowa Platinum. It’s a really shame that Emmy voters looked past Matt Smith’s moving performance as Gulliver, a time traveling salesman who collects the secrets of the gods to sell to the highest bidder. Off the bat, you could tell this was going to be the grittiest season ever because the trailer featured an image with the Statue of Liberty, but her face was upside down.

EMMY Snub: Gulliver’s Menagerie

The standout episode of the season was obviously the flashback episode where Cthulhu gave Gulliver his time machine as a thank you for Gulliver’s help in finding him a therapist. In a nod to the current political climate, the season starts with every character reading George Orwell’s 1984, so for the rest of the season, whenever something bad happens they just say, “whoa this is just like George Orwell’s 1984.”

There certainly should have been a nomination for best guest actor when Jason Bateman appeared in Gulliver’s Menagerie as his character from Ozark. How could Emmy voters not be moved by Jennette McCurdy’s immortal seamstress Betsy Ross, as she attempts to stop her husband, the titan, Kronos, played by Chris Tucker and his relentless obsession with Gulliver so she could finally get taken out to dinner once in a while?

And even though this season was packed with action, it also made time for love. Like when Bryan Cranston’s fan favorite character the spaceship centaur, Tommy Rocket had only 90 days to get married after traveling to the US on his K1 visa. And showrunner, Elias Hickbee, bravely tackled TV’s last taboo, Crohn’s disease by giving Gulliver a robotic ass so he could better process his diseased shits.

EMMY Snub: Gulliver’s Menagerie

This season had us on the edge of our seat, straight through the pulse pounding finale when Gulliver stopped a meteor from crashing into Earth by storing it in the trunk of his time machine.

So I say this to the entire Television Academy: please change your mind and add Gulliver’s Menagerie as a last minute nomination in all categories, considering this is the last season due to the entire cast and crew dying in a freak craft services accident. It would be disrespectful to their memories and to fans of the show to not recognize the brutal, space odyssey, rom-com, period drama, true crime, epic fantasy that is Gulliver’s Menagerie.

Trump Is NOT Banning TikTok Because This Comedy Is TOO GOOD TO BAN!!

Trump Is NOT Banning TikTok Because This Comedy Is TOO GOOD TO BAN!!

Not to start off on a totally dark note, but I wish Trump cared as much about the pandemic as he does about TikTok.

So… Trump was able to force TikTok to divest to an U.S. company in 90 days with no real evidence that TikTok was actually a national security threat, but we’re 7 months and 200K deaths into the pandemic and we STILL DON’T HAVE consistent testing or mandates that would protect us from MORE unnecessary deaths?

Cool beans.

Anyway, even though TikTok is getting “banned,” (see more about that at the bottom of the article!), the comedy is still bangin’, and I wanted to feature the three most bangin’ accounts I came across this week: Chris Olsen & Ian Paget, Manon Mathews, Leenda Dong, and Chris Olsen.


Chris Olsen & Ian Paget • 4.6M followers (@olsennchris & ianpaget_)

Chris’ Instagram | Ian’s Instagram | Chris & Ian on YouTube |

Since Keeping Up With The Kardashians is ending – I found the PERFECT people to fill the void: Ian Paget and Chris Olsen! This gay couple have their own separate TikTok accounts where and they go back and forth playing funny pranks on each other while (intentionally and unintentionally) showcasing their healthy relationship based in strong communication and trust. Honestly – these two getting a reality show is exactly what the world (and the LGBTQ+ peeps) need right now.

asking my boyfriend if “are you just going to sit around all day?”

“I just hit your car” challenge

“My mom is gonna be here in five minutes” prank


Manon Mathews • 1.1M Followers (@manonmathews)

Instagram | YouTube | Twitter

Manon Mathews is so awkward, it’s funny. She started with awkward parodies of Bella from Twilight and has since then created incredibly-relatable, viral and (you guessed it) awkward sketch comedy that built her a huge following on virtually every platform. Psst – Saturday Night Livewhy haven’t you cast her yet!?

June & George: Pool Boy

Stand back from my pup


Leenda Dong • 869k followers (@yoleendadong)

Instagram | YouTube | Twitter

If you like Tosh.0 or Ridiculousness, then you’re going to ADORE Leenda Dong. She makes “dumb” viral clips hilarious with her sassy spot-on commentary. Occasionally, she will take a break from roasting viral clips to one-take skits that will make you laugh (and feel personally attacked). I can’t wait for her to get her own viral clip talk show.

the girl who got stuck in all of her shirts

you have to stop telling your friends you’re on the way

what a cute stingray – I hope nothing bad happens to it


So this Sunday, TikTok is scheduled to get “banned,” but if it does, it likely won’t last very long.

If you missed the last few articles, here’s a quick recap: Trump decided (without evidence) that TikTok was a national security threat because ByteDance (TikTok’s parent company) “could” give user data to China – which again, there is no evidence that this has (or will) happen, and TikTok has publicly stated it would not give data to China.

However, the Trump Administration found a legal loophole that has allowed them to ban TikTok on the basis that it “could” give data to China, and – without due process or evidence – Trump has made two Executive Orders:

  • The first order gave TikTok 90 days to be acquired by a U.S. company or the app would be “banned” – which means TikTok would no longer be available in the app store and unable to be updated. However, if you currently have TikTok downloaded, you will continue to be able to use TikTok normally.
  • If the first order wasn’t met, then the second Executive Order goes into effect: total shutdown of TikTok on November 12th, 2020.

Microsoft and Oracle made bids to acquire TikTok, and Oracle came out the winner.

So wait, why is TikTok still being potentially banned on Sunday if it being acquired by a U.S. company?

As of today (September 19th, 2020) Trump has given the partnership between TikTok, Oracle and Walmart his blessing, but we’re still waiting on all the paperwork to be filled out. So the ban is still set to happen Sunday, but will be lifted if and when the paperwork is sorted out by then. (again, the ban would just prevent new downloads and updates to the app – if you have the app – you won’t notice any changes).

Basically, the ban has been a likely unconstitutional way to quickly force TikTok (an app with over 800 million users and a net worth of over 78 billion dollars), to be acquired by a U.S. company, specifically Oracle, which is conveniently owned by one of Trump’s richest supporters: Larry Ellison. It feels (and looks) like this ban is less about avoiding a potential national security threat and more about Trump handing a very lucrative business to one of his friends.

If TikTok doesn’t comply with Trump’s demands (whether or not the terms of the deal are fair), TikTok loses everything. And if TikTok ends, it isn’t just “cringe” teen dancing videos that disappear: thousands of TikTok employees and TikTok creators will lose their income in the middle of a global pandemic.

Moving forward, one of three below things could happen, and I’ve listed them in order of what’s most (and least) likely to happen:

  • Oracle and Walmart partners with ByteDance and shows the Trump Administration that TikTok is no longer a “potential national security threat,” and TikTok continues business as usual (p.s. Oracle, Walmart, and Trump obviously wants TikTok to continue being profitable because, it’ll make them $$$ – so more likely than not this is how things will play out)
  • ByteDance rejects the partnership in hopes that they win their current lawsuit against the Trump Administration (if TikTok wins the lawsuit, the Executive Orders and ban would be ruled unconstitutional and be blocked)
  • ByteDance and Oracle are unable to come to an agreement that satisfies the Trump Administration’s national security concerns, and the app is shut down on November 12th.

Cool beans (I guess).

This Scientist Showed What Working From Home During The Pandemic REALLY Looks Like


The entirety of 2020 has been a never-ending string of bad news, and, surprise! I’ve got another upsetting development to tack onto the shit parade. Continuing the theme of the powers at be doing everything they can to speed up the end of the world, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recently added a new member to their senior ranks, and he sucks. He sucks so goddamn much. His name is David Legates, he’s an avid climate science denier who has spent basically his whole career as an academic scientist doing just that, he continues to spread misinformation and theories that have been proven false, and his work is funded by the fossil fuel industry. Seriously, fuck this guy. And now he’s a federal climate science leader.

Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhh, goddddddddddddddd

Don’t worry, this story isn’t all doom-and-gloom. Thanks to fine people like Dr. Gretchen Goldman, there’s hope to be had. Goldman, who holds a PhD in environmental engineering, is the Research Director at the Center for Science and Democracy. She appeared on CNN this week to explain why Legates is literally the worst person to occupy that position, and after she finished, she took to Twitter to share a hilarious, deeply relatable look at behind-the-scenes.

Here she is on The Situation Room,

and here she is again… also on The Situation Room.

This Scientist Showed What Working From Home During The Pandemic REALLY Looks Like Twitter | Gretchen Goldman

It’s hard to say exactly what the best part of this whole situation is, but I’m personally torn between the coffee table chair setup and those bona fide mom shoes.

Yeah, I see you.

This Scientist Showed What Working From Home During The Pandemic REALLY Looks Like Twitter | Gretchen Goldman

Look. We may not all be PhDs who give televised interviews on major news channels, but being pantless for Zoom meetings and making sure the two square feet behind your head looks presentable even though the rest of the house is a disaster is, truly, the great unifier during these times. We’re all doing our best, and knowing that a notable environmental scientist also doesn’t put on actual pants for video conferences is all the vindication I need to never think “maybe I should get dressed for this call” ever again.
