Apparently, the news that you don't come at Amy Schumer unless you prefer to be rapidly reduced to a smoking heap of ash and ruin hasn't reached Sweden.

For the average male audience member, deciding whether or not to shout "Show us your tits" at Schumer might seem like a tough call.

On one hand, you've paid a lot of money and traveled a long way to see Schumer perform, and by shouting, you basically guarantee yourself titanic humiliation at the hands of a skilled professional whose job is to carve up your ego into tiny bite-size chunks.

On the other hand, she has boobs, and you want to see them because to you, she is a walking, talking pair of boobs.


In this case, the outcome was the carving up you'd basically expect.

Schumer graciously invited the dude to join her on stage. He, being a coward, declined.

Undaunted, the comedian went a few rounds mercilessly mocking his career and his T-shirt before gently warning him to shut up or be thrown out.

He couldn't shut up, so she threw him out. And the crowd went bananas.

Schumer has a long history of dealing with sexism, and not just from random Swedish hecklers...

...including efforts by publications to label her size, interviewers calling her character in "Trainwreck" a "skanky" dresser, and fans suggesting that she should be sexually available to everyone and everything because she talks about sex a lot on her TV show.

So it's no surprise that she came prepared with the proper toolkit to neutralize the inevitable bro-terruption.

One part confidence, one part jokes, and 10 parts brutal mockery.

And of course, the kicker —

"I'll show my tits when I want to."

You come at the queen, you best not miss.

(Seriously, though. Don't come at the queen. Just enjoy the damn show, everyone. It's what you paid for.)

That first car is a rite of passage into adulthood. Specifically, the hard-earned lesson of expectations versus reality. Though some of us are blessed with Teslas at 17, most teenagers receive a car that’s been … let’s say previously loved. And that’s probably a good thing, considering nearly half of first-year drivers end up in wrecks. Might as well get the dings on the lemon, right?

Of course, wrecks aside, buying a used car might end up costing more in the long run after needing repairs, breaking down and just a general slew of unexpected surprises. But hey, at least we can all look back and laugh.

My first car, for example, was a hand-me-down Toyota of some sort from my mother. I don’t recall the specific model, but I definitely remember getting into a fender bender within the first week of having it. She had forgotten to get the brakes fixed … isn’t that a fun story?

Jimmy Fallon recently asked his “Tonight Show” audience on Twitter to share their own worst car experiences. Some of them make my brake fiasco look like cakewalk (or cakedrive, in this case). Either way, these responses might make us all feel a little less alone. Or at the very least, give us a chuckle.

TikTok about '80s childhood is a total Gen X flashback.

As a Gen X parent, it's weird to try to describe my childhood to my kids. We're the generation that didn't grow up with the internet or cell phones, yet are raising kids who have never known a world without them. That difference alone is enough to make our 1980s childhoods feel like a completely different planet, but there are other differences too that often get overlooked.

How do you explain the transition from the brown and orange aesthetic of the '70s to the dusty rose and forest green carpeting of the '80s if you didn't experience it? When I tell my kids there were smoking sections in restaurants and airplanes and ashtrays everywhere, they look horrified (and rightfully so—what were we thinking?!). The fact that we went places with our friends with no quick way to get ahold of our parents? Unbelievable.

One day I described the process of listening to the radio, waiting for my favorite song to come on so I could record it on my tape recorder, and how mad I would get when the deejay talked through the intro of the song until the lyrics started. My Spotify-spoiled kids didn't even understand half of the words I said.

And '80s hair? With the feathered bangs and the terrible perms and the crunchy hair spray? What, why and how?

"Veteran" mom and "new" mom parent differently.

When a couple has their first child, they start out with the greatest of intentions and expectations. The child will only eat organic food. They will never watch TV or have screen time and will always stay clean.

But soon, reality sets in and if they have more kids, they'll probably be raised with a lot less attention. As a result, first-born kids turn out a bit differently than their younger siblings.

"Rules are a bit more rigid, attention and validation is directed and somewhat excessive," Niro Feliciano, LCSW, a psychotherapist and anxiety specialist, told Parents. "As a result, firstborns tend to be leaders, high achievers, people-pleasing, rule-following and conscientious, several of the qualities that tend to predict success."
