It’s just a joke

I don’t know if this happens to anyone else. For the last couple of years I really feel like I have found my voice, so now when people are kind of dismissive of me and what I can tolerate. I make jokes because it is kind of funny that people suddenly are offended by me not liking thing that they know I’ve never liked anyway?

I can just see your faces right now…What is she blithering about?lol

Let me give you an example.

A couple of weekends ago was a big birthday for my Mum, so my brother travelled interstate to be with her. Now, I am not good with chilli, never have been. I love sweet chilli, but I can just barely eat that. I always have to drink milk. So over this weekend we were supposed to have a family Chinese dinner out, but they cancelled it and had home made steaks with chilli on it. I hadn’t had a sudden immunity to chilli, so I’m already annoyed.

While making some food my Mum “accidentally” spilt pepper all over the potatoes. I made a joke about would I be able to eat any of it. I got yelled at! Then I didn’t even bite into the steak, but the carrot covered in the juices and my throat got burnt. Then they all called me fake, and then they all paid me out for not enjoying it. So I yelled at them,lol.

Then I cried,lol.

Trumpter Logic 14

Comparing Louis CK “jokes” about the mass shooting of the Parkland Shootings aimed at the children. Too people falling over…Is, according to them…The same type of “joke”.

Also though Trumps address…Did those television stations seriously expect ANYTHING else???

Didn’t you know? I’m a comedian now! =D

“You’re not interesting just because the alt-right like you now.”

Its not even a joke, it’s a statement. How is it a joke? It’s just not a joke,lol… An opinion is not a joke. It’s lazy. He had all that time and that’s what he did? Write down some opinions?

Trevor Noah…Cancelled?

All women are beautiful

Trevor Noah explains controversial joke

For those who do not want to read the article. Trevor Noah is a comedian with a weekly/kind of daily comedy show. He has been one of my favourites for such a long time (and his impressions of the Trumpster is freaking hilarious!) However, he made a comment about Aboriginal women, that has not gone over well, with myself included. Too break it down :

“Women of every race can be beautiful,” he said. “And I know some of you are sitting there now going, ‘Oh Trevor… I’ve never seen a beautiful Aborigine.’ But you know what you say? You say, ‘Yet.’ Because you haven’t seen all of them, right?”

You can imagine how this comment has gone down, especially here ‘down under’.

Trevor Noah has gone to explain that because the whole clip wasn’t shown, his comments were completely taken out of context…But still…

When I looked at the whole “bit”, I got it better. However, the comments were still harsh, no matter the setting. Since I am Australian, I have seen many beautiful Aboriginal women. Just because Trevor Noah may not have, doesn’t mean it was alright to say those comments and then not really apologise for them. Maybe he should have some done research about that one first. What if I said “I haven’t seen any beautiful South African women…Yet”…Well, one that’s not even true and how is that not degrading?

Also, Samantha Harris, Jessica Mauboy, Ella Havelka, Leah Purcell…

It’s really not that hard to find these women.

Also though, who gets to define beauty anyway?

Are you a practical jokester?

No..but I constantly think of doing practical jokes to people I know…I just never follow through.

Who cuts your hair?  You, a friend, or professional.

My mum actually does it most of them time. We have a few family friends that are hairdressers but most of the time I just need a quick trim. If my Mum didn’t want to or couldn’t, I’d probably go to one of them. Sometimes I want to go to a hairdressers and get something fancy done, but it’s just too money for something that will probably only look nice for a day.

Did you have a stuffed animal when you were a kid, if so what kind?

Oh I had a LOT! I’ve still got some as well. Some I’ve put away for my future children, some of the others I’ve gotten rid of (either through donations or just thrown out). Some are still out in my room. Picture below. They’re usually just all together all the time, every now and then (particularly difficult week/s) I will bring one of them onto my bed with me. It’s nice to have something from your childhood to cuddle…If they could talk…I would have to kill them!lol

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

Sometimes you just need a reminder too forget the people that have tried to hurt, lied about, gossip and try to make others hate you. Forget those who have made you angry and remember to cherish every single second with those who have loved you, those who do love you and those who you love. They wont be around forever.

Did you know?

This is a totally “Did you know” joke…sarcasm..satire…It’s supposed to be funny

Did you know this? Did you hear about this?

I personally thought that this was something that literally every female artist has ever done before…as a “rite of passage” thing…But did you know that apparently Beyonce “invented”  having her dancers in a “formation”? Funny, I didn’t know that either! Personally I had thought it had always been around?! I could have sworn I’ve seen it somewhere else before?

That’s just me though *sips teas*
