Funny women, for to make you laughing!


We have told you in the past about one of Wonkette's favorite nonprofit groups that's doing good work for a good cause, the Lady Parts Justice League. It was founded by Wonkette pal Lizz Winstead ("The Daily Show"/Air America radio), and it, according to Google, is "a coven of hilarious badass feminists who use humor and pop culture to expose the haters fighting against reproductive rights." That is VERY FUCKING IMPORTANT these days.

Because, you see, reproductive rights were already under constant attack from the religious right, what with their terrible anti-woman hate groups and their fake bullshit "crisis pregnancy centers" -- you know, those places across the street from abortion clinics that look like abortion clinics, but then you get inside and there are no doctors, just an old lady named Barb who gives you brochures about how zygotes have feelings and ladies who have abortions cry every day until they die of breast cancer and go to hell.

Yeah, THOSE places.

And those are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the LIES from the "pro-life" side of things. So many LIES. And FUCKED UP LEGISLATION. And "PRO-LIFE" JUDGES. And EVERYTHING ELSE.

But now, under the Trump regime, they who would really like for ALL YOUR LADY PARTS ARE BELONG TO THEM have way too much power (and now, a Gorsuch!), and they are doing every damn thing they can to dismantle reproductive health access, including SAFE, LEGAL ABORTION. Want to read a long splainer on everything the Trump administration has done to destroy reproductive rights? There's a Vox for that!

The point is that these rights (RIGHTS) are under attack more than ever, and Lady Parts Justice League is a group on the ground, using HILARIOUS HUMOR and grassroots activism to get clinics the help and support they need to keep on keepin' on. They make educational videos and do comedy shows and get locals involved in doing the work to support their own clinics, a la "USO show meets Habitat for Humanity," as Winstead has described it many times.

Point of all this is that Lady Parts Justice League is having a telethon tonight, live-streaming from a top secret location in Los Angeles, and you are invited! Oh fuckin' wow, come to mention it, YOU ARE ALREADY AT THE TELETHON, because you are in this post! It is called "Life Is A Living Nightmare: A Telethon To Fix It," and look at this all-star line-up!

If you can't click to embiggen that, what you need to know is that at 9 PM ET (which is "a time" in other time zones), Lizz Winstead and Sarah Silverman and Rachel Bloom and Andy Richter and Amy Brenneman and Greg Proops and Mark Hamill and ALL THESE OTHER PEOPLE are coming together to do a hilarious comedy telethon, and all proceeds will go to continue Lady Parts Justice League's very important work.

If you feel so led by the Lord, please give them donation dollars! (See? We don't always ask you to give us money. Not always.) In return, they will make you laugh and laugh for two hours, and then laugh some more in the middle of the night because you just woke up and remembered a gross joke Silverman told about anuses or something. Also you will have the happytimes feeling that you Did A Good Thing.

Here is your video, which again starts at 9 PM ET, so might as well stay in this post all night!

And here are the details you'll need if you want to participate in the telethon, by donating or by bidding on auction items:

Dame Peggington Noonington awakened in the New York Publick Librarie in a daze. She did not know what series of unfortunate events had led to this moment, but she vaguely remembered that last time this happened a passerby on 5th Avenue had transported her there, having found her on a stoop with eyes glazed over, muttering "Buk! Buk!" If we're being honest, she was choking on gin, but the well-meaning Good Samaritan took her for a woman craving classic literature, and Peggy was OK with allowing that illusion to stand.

As she stumbled toward the exit to summon her chauffeur -- Manuel, who was also her houseboy, who probably was responsible entirely for her current predicament, and would be subject to a talking-to about his derring-do as soon as Peggy's head stopped pounding -- she happened upon a display of new arrivals. "Buk! Buk!" she said. Swallowing hard, she grabbed a copy of Michelle Obama's book and went out onto the New York street without actually checking the book out.

Peggy arrived home safely, if a bit worse for the wear. She had been thinking about America's royal families a lot lately, especially the genteel women who serve as First Lady. She was particularly charmed by Melania Trump's show of wicked mischief last week, firing the deputy national security adviser without regret! Peggy remembered how fun it is to fire people and stuck a Post-it on her forehead to remind her to fire Manuel later, for leaving her destitute among the commoners at the librarie.

Congratulations to the Dear Leader on his flawless victory in court against the media dogs at the CNN cesspool of evil. Donald Trump is a champion of the people's right to civil discourse, and he will not hesitate to slap those who hurt the dignity of the Supreme Leadership. Take it from Ri Chun-hee Sarah Huckabee Sanders:

Today the court made clear that there is no absolute First Amendment right to access the White House. In response to the court, we will temporarily reinstate the reporter's hard pass. We will also further develop rules and processes to ensure fair and orderly press conferences in the future. There must be decorum at the White House.

Leave aside for a moment the screaming irony of the Pussgrab Administration lecturing the press on decorum. Literally none of what the Huckster said here is true. Judge Timothy Kelly ordered the White House Press Office to reinstate Jim Acosta's hard pass immediately on Fifth Amendment grounds. He didn't reach the First Amendment issues of press access because he didn't have to.
