Last night, HBO aired the one-hour standup special Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo. It was good, if you’re into that sort of thing (i.e. Schumer being Schumer). My favorite bit centered on cum. It started, “I’m just reminding you that we’re all disgusting. No one in here is better than anyone else. Like, you’ve all caught a hot load, you know?”

She proceeded to explain how semen levels the playing field of life. “Gandhi was cum. Oprah, cum. Oprah could have wound up all over somebody’s tits, but no, we got Oprah. Thank you, cum.” She then made a choice Lean In reference and mused on Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s and Michelle Obama’s dealings with cum.

And then a perfect segue: “I am labeled a sex comic, and I just think sex is explained incorrectly, as far as men and women’s roles go.” That encapsulates not just the preceding bit, but Schumer’s career overall.
