The League of Funny Bitches

10/25/2010 · 15 comments

in I Want This., League Of Funny Bitches

Look up above. Do you see that new page that’s called League of Funny Bitches?

It’s time, all you bitches.

There’s hundreds of thousands of groups for Moms, women in their twenties, moms who’ve lost loved ones, single moms, women who are getting married, women who are getting divorced, women of God, women of Anything but God, working moms, single women, women who blog, women who hate blogging, famous women, women who want to be famous, women who are happy, women who are angry, women in their 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond, women who are scared of _____, women who don’t know what the fuck they want to do with anything.

These Bitches–from all walks of life and all points of view–are FUNNY! Through pain, happiness, learning, tears, love, rejection, suffering, and joy, one thing remains constant–humor pulls people through the darkest of places.

I’m funny because I’ve been in pain for so long in my life, that the only way Grace, my Ma, and I learned to break through was humor. We learned to laugh for survival. We learned to cling to what is good to battle what is bad.

I’ve seen terrible things, and lived through each of them with my pride and heart intact, and am all the funnier for it. People made me laugh, and that laughter healed me.

So now it’s my turn to share.

Who is the funniest bitch you know? TELL ME ABOUT HER! This is about sharing–about showing others where you’ve come from and who you are, and how fucking hilarious life can be.

You’ve read my stories (or if you haven’t, you should be), but I want to know yours, too.

It’s very easy to recommend a Funny Bitch. Just email me, facebook me, tweet me, leave me a comment–whatever you do, tell me who your funny bitches are.

I’ll share your stories and your humor here. I’ll cry with tears of laughter with you, and so will everyone else.

Comment Of The Day:

By Coconuts from Gloopy Doodles: 

So, I’ve been contemplating whether or not you’re funnier than my grandma. You see, Granny’s a pill popping drunk (no joke) & cracks me up to no end. Especially when she’s talking about the star crossed lovers that meet on her roof nightly because their parents don’t approve (also no joke). However funny Granny may be though, I’ve decided that you are are indeed funnier than she is. Granny doesn’t have to try because the pills & the booze done wiped out her brain cells long ago where as I’m pretty sure that hasn’t happened to you since you can put together a sentence coherently (did I spell that right?).

Regardless of Granny’s lack of brain cells, I do enjoy your blog & would feel privileged to join your “League” should you deem me humorous.

I’ve been told I’m funny. Who do I have to sleep with to be a part of “The League”?

Did this thing just swallow my comment?

Noa Gavin October 27, 2010 at 11:26 am

AHAHAHAHAHA, swallow. Excellent.

Annah October 27, 2010 at 3:55 pm

It’s actually “Red Means Go” … only that stupid Google didn’t have http://www.redmeansgo.com as a domain anymore.

*le sigh*

Loved your comment on “Let’s Play a Game.”

Noa Gavin October 27, 2010 at 11:06 pm

Sorry! Should be fixed now.

So, let’s just say, hypothetically, that someone makes fun of Jesus at the Louvre (it was accidental, okay?), has a mental breakdown at Target and considers divorcing her husband over an accordion file folder.

Is that funny….or just tragic.

Noa Gavin October 28, 2010 at 2:20 pm

Let’s say, hypothetically, that my husband looks just like Jesus, and I think that’s fucking hilarious. And I loved that post about Target.

Whoa. Granny might be funnier than me. And I do love me some Whiskey and Dr. Pepper. But the worst pills I take are Citrical.

I might be your grandmother. Which, I suppose, would make me equal or greater to your Granny.

Coconuts October 28, 2010 at 4:12 pm

YAY! Comment of the day! Oh yeah! I feel really special now….

BTW, Granny NEVER says Fuck & fuck is a fucking funny ass word. She does say Twat a lot though.

Noa Gavin October 28, 2010 at 4:17 pm

Twat is a respectable word. A highly motherfucking respectable word.
