Professorfangirl's Bordello of Learning

Because every pleasure deserves to be taken seriously

unlockaflockofwords:

That excruciating moment when you realise that the smug good ol’boy asshat congressman in front of you has not been able to grasp that you are a member of the same government as him, because you aren’t white.

I can’t tell if Arun Kumar is cracking up or trying not to bite his tongue off.

Oh, but your tags:
i am FLABBERGASTED at this post #this person is offended because some people are painting their nails with the tjlc letter and making pancakes that spell out tjlc #and they’re quoting…. FREUD….im
But why are you flabbergasted when I was JOKING? Just like the original post, I was JOKING.
GET IT?

ahsdklfH:FHAHAHAH please don’t flatter yourself. when the thing you’re attempting to satirize actually already literally is lighthearted, fun satire, you just end up looking like a small, bitter, hardhearted old woman.

you honestly make me sad.

Okay now, honeylamb, come over here and let mama learn you a thing about humor. Jokes are complicated, babydoll; in an essay called “Jokes and their Relation to the Unconscious,” Mr. Sigmund Freud, a very famous psychology guy, said that jokes let us say things that we usually can’t say because they’re not allowed: “dangerous feelings of hostility, aggression, cynicism or sexuality are expressed, bypassing the internal and external censors, and thus enjoyed” (x). There are things we want to say or feelings we have that would be impolite or offensive or scary to say out loud, and jokes let us say them without really saying them. That way we get the pleasure of expressing the wrong feeling without having to take responsibility for it. So you see, sweetie, every joke has two sides.

Such as the joke I just made: when I called you baby names, I was just kidding. Now, I’m not: talking to you like that would be making fun of you, it would be patronizing and insulting, and I would never honestly do that. That’s not a joke I would ever make, because no matter how clearly I signalled that I was joking, I couldn’t prevent some people from taking it seriously—because the joke wouldn’t be funny if there wasn’t some truth to it. And you know, my first inclination was to use “honeychile” in my joke , but I quickly decided not to, because that a stereotypically African-American turn of speech, and using an oppressed group for my humor would just be too offensive to laugh off. I may, in my heart of hearts, have been only joking, but it’s not what I want the joke to mean, it’s what the joke actually does to people that matters.

TL;DR: sometimes, despite our worst best intentions, jokes tell the truth.

Did you ever get a t-shirt that says "Fanon Jesus is better than canon Jesus" asked by seventhsentinel

Nope. I believe the reverse, myself.

And then there’s The Godfather Part 2 and the way Robert De Niro happened
