Okay, she had me at "I guess I just don’t think women should be wearing wedding gowns that look like they were dreamed by Larry from Three’s Company. "

However, if i saw an ad for miniature condoms modeled by an asian man, I’d think it was hilarious.

And I think you're not.

My browser width caused the lowercase letters "ee" to be below and to the left of the word "Cummings", causing incorrect synapses to fire.

She's funny and pretty and it's a shame she has no career option but to crawl on her hands and knees and glean whatever categorial humor remains in the scorched earth and rotting carcasses left by the passage of Sarah Silverman.

An F cup in Japan is more like a C cup in America. Just FYI.

That wedding dress. My god. Really? I'm just flabbergasted. Why would anyone do that?

If Whitney Cummings never did anything else in comedy, she'd still be awesome just for this line in the Joan Rivers Roast: "Joan, I loved you in The Wrestler."

Nice to see that M. Pemulis has joined the crowd here.

Dude, I wonder what the bridesmaids were wearing? That is an awesome wedding dress.

I had to search the web after I saw that wedding dress, sure that the woman was a pornstar looking for attention, but apparently she's just a Russian bride with extremely poor taste.

Worse yet, here's yet another bride in the same tacky dress.

I think that the dress was actually not supposed to look as bad as that, but was collapsing due to inadequate boning. (heh heh, yea, it really is called boning)

I'm not sure "extremely poor taste" and "tacky" really do those dresses justice. Unless those are porn stars, that dress seems to fall more on the "horrifying" and "dysfunctional" end of the taste spectrum.

I've never heard of Cummins but I like the way she writes. I just read a few of her posts and her jokes just... I dunno, kind of snuck up on me when I didn't see them coming. I don't find her grating, which is how Sarah Silverman affects me.

Two thumbs-up from me. Thanks.

Enough cookies can definitely increase your breast size. Unfortunately, they increase the size of everything else too.

When I saw the wedding photo, my first thought was that it was a photo of Jennifer Coolidge from some new Christopher Guest movie.

I don't think so faze. Sarah Silverman was funny maybe once, what, 10 years ago. What little I saw of her final season on comedy central was so bad I would call it "retroactively bad" in that it makes you hate everything she had ever done before.

(And I'm not calling her a conehead, but it always looked to me like her head got stuck in her mom's birth canal when she was born, and the doctor had to pull way too hard to get her out)

I love her appearances on Chelsea Lately. She also works blue, like on Jim Norton's show and some of the Adam Carolla live shows.

Very talented comedienne. I hope she does a show in my neck of the woods sometime soon.

Also, she posts multiple times a day to her Twitter account.

Am I the only person who got totally sidetracked on the Lula Lu lingerie site? Thanks? I don't need any new bras but I'll keep these in mind?

Those Tiger Oil Company memos are worth a MeFi post on their own, but I can't help thinking that someone wrote them all up more recently than 1978.

She hosted a show I worked on for the Sundance Channel once. She sucked. But hey, people can learn and change. Even Jake Tapper hosted a show there once, and now he's supposedly some sort of political expert. Why? Beats me. Someone just decided one day.

I thought I had read the Tiger Oil Co. memos before, too, so I googled and found this.

zinfandel — I can say from personal experience that if you're in Lula Lu's target market and you find yourself anywhere near the Bay Area, it's worth a trip to visit their store. It is SO NICE to go into a bra-shopping situation knowing that 90%+ of the items carried will be available in my size. So much better than the much-touted (but in my experience always-unsatisfying) Nordstrom bra department. I don't remember whether it was a Nordstrom or somewhere else that the fitting assistant made a comment about how "all you little women think you wear a bigger size than you do." No, you unempathetic bitch, it's just impossible to find bras in small enough sizes, much less ones that look good! Argh.

What if someone started making vagina flavored gum to get you guys used to the taste so you weren’t such a pansy about it to the point of needing to make vaginas taste like fucking bacon?

I approve of this.

I thought it was a gypsy wedding dress.

I have limited experience of bridalwear but have never seen one that appears designed to accommodate a big bust.

The Tiger Oil memos are mentioned in this FPP.

The entry about bacon flavored lube is priceless. Thanks for this!

a) I just have to say, that spanx and granny panties aside, Whitney Cummings is a stone cold hot mess of a total fox. She am hot. I don't even care that she resembles a late-seventies, feather-banged, cirque-de-soliel level annoying Doug Henning. Hell, that guy confused me when I was a kid too, running around in all that spandex, with his bulges and his buck-ass teeth, talking about magic and illusion, and then making me stay in my uncle's room with his large collection of lotions and wooden contraptions...

and b) Ha ha, someone reads metafilter -- scroll down :)
