I’ve been seeing a lot of buzz lately about the web series “Shit Girls Say” (follow their Twitter account) and copycat offspring birthed from the loins of classic comedy about gender, culture, and sexuality. My currently favorite comedian Daniel Tosh is infamous for soliciting viewer submissions about particular stereotypes or taking jabs at them himself on his popular Comedy Central show “Tosh.0″ like during his “Is it racist?” segments.
When I started this blog, one of the earliest things I blogged about was “Stuff People Like Phenomenon” which were collections of written lists that played to a particular stereotype spawned by “Stuff White People Like.” To this day, I can’t stop laughing when I see a white person wearing one of those The North Face fleeces thanks to that list.
This morning, I finally sat down to watch a few, and there are some good ones out there. Here’s the ones that I’ve seen so far. If you see any good ones, leave a link to them in a comment. I will continue to add them here so check back and see if there’s anything new that I’ve put online.
