The funniest people are the ones doing or saying ridiculous stuff but can do it with a straight face while everyone else is cracking up

Girls are told to be skinny but not too skinny and to wear makeup but not so much that guys can tell and to dress in revealing clothes but not too revealing or else you’re a slut and a hundred other contradictory standards so I think guys can deal with being made fun of for wearing fedoras
A man tells his stories so many times that he becomes the stories. They live on after him, and in that way he becomes immortal. Big Fish (2003, dir. Tim Burton)
By barring particular outfits from school, dress codes help boys identify and objectify “inappropriate” girls and women. Girls who violate dress codes are violating rules, and girls who violate rules are bad. Bad girls can be desirable and sexy, but they don’t necessarily deserve respect (even from other girls).
And where respect is absent, objectification is easy. In her guide to self-objectification, Caroline Heldman explains how sexually objectified women are dehumanized and viewed as “less competent and worthy of empathy by both men and women.” Those who are dehumanized may be mistreated and made to feel inadequate. And if poor self-image is linked with objectification, it isn’t hard to see that this cycle feeds itself: Those who are objectified by others are treated as less than human, and in understanding themselves as less than human may self-objectify.
Asking girls to cover up is a Band-Aid solution to far more socially ingrained problems such as general misogyny and rape culture. As long as a girl or woman is always sexualized, it won’t matter how much she covers up—she’ll still be faulted for her inappropriate behavior.”

Yoko, Ringo & Paul dancing to Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’ is my favourite thing.
When you sees these legendary artists dancing along to a fun song…it reminds you that after all these years, it was their genuine love of music that got them to where they are. No matter how old they get or where they are, good music will always be their constant.
All I can see is Nate Ruess and his mustache in the second one.
