"THIS is breaking with the theme, Mom. Okay? You need to shape the FUCK up."

We've had a lot of new commenters around these parts recently, and I really love that the things Josh and I write have been stimulating such furious discussions. But I'll admit: if you comment with a Blogger ID, not only do I read your profile, I also Google you. (I know, I'm a creep) And that's what I did for Sara Benincasa, who is a comedienne and writer in New York, and also the star of this video, which I've watched like 50 times now and think is fucking hilarious. Do yourself a favor and check it out below:

all those colognes were gross. except jo malone. i haven't smelled jo malone's cologne (ha, ryhmes), but her grapefruit scented candles and linen sprays are heavenly.

(and then sam burst into the the biggest, gayest ball of flames the world has ever known.)

Ahaha, we are the same stalker-y person. Although I deliberately make myself basically unstalkable (I don't even have facebook! I KNOW!) so it's kind of more creepy?

Oh, and during the comment shitfit some kind soul brought you up as someone she'd like to see writing for Jezebel! You're gonna make it, kiddo.

Jess and Josh said...

Anonymous - my FB is super private so it's almost just as bad.

OMG, can you show me this comment? I'm frothing with excitement over here.

Anonymous here--GOD, I lead a dull and internety life, and luckily I still had the discussion window open:

"Lastly, the kind of writing that Jess does on JessandJoshtalk is more what I would like to see on Jezebel, actually. Honest, thoughtful, personal, and not as vicious or booze-fueled as what often turns up on this site."

And it's totes true, I really hope you'll be able to parlay your Internet Infamy into some kind of connections, and on to an actual job in the media b/c your voice is fantastic.

Jess and Josh said...

Becca - thank you so much! Despite everything that has happened, I'm still an avid Jezebel reader and appreciate it as a repository for both snark and seriousness when it comes to women's issues. Unforch I think I'm still a little too young to be considered for the position haha.

Also, I believe "A Dull and Internety Life" should be the name of my autobiography because it's a perfect description of my existence, too.

great video and great to have Sara hopping over here. I loved her comments on Jez and noticed that she hasn't been around lately.

Sara Benincasa said...

Hey, Jess, thanks so much for posting this! I was just fucking around at my house all bleary-eyed and stuff. Also, can we talk about the fact that my parents don't even know what a bowl is?!? (I'm not gonna be the one to tell them.) And thanks, KTS!

Oh also, my brother's explanation for having Passion by Elizabeth Taylor for Men: "Girls respect Elizabeth Taylor. If I wear her cologne, girls will respect me and will know that I respect them. And then we will do it."

Jess and Josh said...

Sara, you're lucky your parents are oblivious to the whole bowl thing. By now my parents have basically accepted the fact that I am a veritable pothead and therefore just turn a blind eye. I bet your brother picks up mad chicks with that Elizabeth Taylor cologne. I think I might be crushin on him...

OMG HE IS SINGLE AND READY TO MINGLE! He's one of my FB friends. Look up "Steve Donnelly." Or if you look at my wall, I think he commented like a week ago or less. Hahahaha!
