Tig Notaro's Breasts Were Unsatisfied, So They Tried to Kill Her

Tig Notaro is one of the driest comedians out there. She's also one of the bravest, able to make fun of everything life's thrown at her. For Notaro, that means cracking jokes about surviving breast cancer and enduring a double mastectomy, all right after her mother died and her girlfriend told her to kick rocks.

The Times Explains That Controversial Front Page Nipple Photo

Every year, millions of American men and boys are infected with douchebaggery — a soul-fatal condition in 90% of cases.
