Before humans grow up and learn that not every thought should be said aloud, we are pretty darn funny…and little Greta is living proof. For the last year or so, her parents have been documenting and sharing her proto-comic skills.
As cases of measles spread across the country and the conversation surrounding vaccination increases in breadth and volume, Jon Stewart turns his forthright wit toward the fringey folks whose fault it is this is even an issue…
This young traveler decided to come home after two years instead of staying on the road like he’d planned, and his mother had no idea. When she saw him walk in the door, her reaction was nothing short of…expressive.
Watch to the end for the funniest (NSFW) moment. Oh, and turn your speakers down a bit…
The Jacksons’ daughter has leukemia which has ruined her measles immunity, and their son is too young to be immunized. So they are, in a sense, at the mercy of their community when it comes to contracting or not contracting the infection.
Now, after a trip to Disneyland and having indirect contact with a family who doesn’t vaccinate, their son is showing signs of the disease. And there’s nothing they can do but wait and hope.
Their story is sad enough told just like that. But to add salt to the wound, let’s see what the anti-vax doctor interviewed for this segment has to say…
His remarks (which begin about 2 minutes in) are clearly edited, so it’s possible he’s not as terrible as he comes across. Let’s hope so anyway, because how could anyone — and a doctor, no less — show such blatant disregard for the lives of other people?
Using italki, you learn a language by having real 1–on-1 conversations with teachers who are native speakers. Instead of signing up for expensive courses, buying software, or structuring your life around a class schedule, you simply book low-cost, individually tailored lessons at your convenience. Now you’re in control and you get to fluency faster.
Kate Siegel and her mom have a very close relationship.
And a key part of the ongoing communication that keeps them close is texting. Lots and lots of texting…
Of course. Because Kate’s mom is full of tenderness, patience, and acceptance.
OK, that’s not true at all. Fortunately, though, what she lacks in empathy and goodwill she makes up for with hilarious, unwanted life advice and general smart-assery, which Kate happily serves up on Instagram and Facebook for the rest of us to enjoy.
Check out her texts, laugh…and be glad she’s not your mom.
