Amy Schumer just completely owned a sexist heckler — and there's video.

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.)

Are looks more important than the ability to get through a long work day without ending up with eyes so dry and painful you wish you could pop them out of your face? Many employers in Japan don't permit their female employees to wear glasses while at work. Big shocker, male employees are totally allowed to sport a pair of frames. The logic behind it (if you can call it that) is that women come off as "cold" and "unfeminine" and – horror of all horrors – "too intelligent."

Women are given excuses as to why they can't wear glasses to work. Airline workers are told it's a safety thing. Beauty industry workers are told they need to see makeup clearly. But men apparently don't have the same safety issues as women, because they're allowed to wear their glasses square on the face. Hospitality staff, waitresses, receptionists at department stores, and nurses at beauty clinics are some of the women who are told to pop in contacts while they're on the clock.

Beluga whales are affectionately known as sea canaries for their song-like vocalizations, and their name is the Russian word for "white."

They are sociable animals that live, hunt, and migrate together in pods, ranging from a few individuals to hundreds of whales. However, they are naturally reticent to interact with humans, although some solitary belugas are known to approach boats.

Once such beluga that's believed to live in Norwegian waters is so comfortable among humans that it played fetch with a rugby ball.

No reward comes without risk - or in the case of Vilnius - risqué. The capitol city of Lithuania has a population of 570,000 and regularly makes lists as an underrated and inexpensive European destination. Lonely Planet called it a "hidden gem" of Europe. In 2016, it was rated the third cheapest destination for a bachelor party in Europe by FairFX. And you've probably never heard of it. In August of 2018, the city started running racy ads to increase tourism, calling it the "G-spot of Europe." The ad features a woman grabbing a map of Europe, clutching the spot where Vilnius is located. "Nobody knows where it is, but when you find it – it's amazing," reads the caption.

The truth doesn't hurt for an elementary school teacher in California who's gone viral for teaching her class an empowering remix of one of Lizzo's hit songs.

Ms. Mallari — who teaches at Los Medanos Elementary School in Pittsburg, east of San Francisco — took the singer's song, "Truth Hurts," and reworked the lyrics to teach her students how to be great.

Lizzo's song made history this year for being the longest running number one single from a female rap artist. The catchy original lyrics are about boy problems, but Mallari's remix teaches her students about fairness, helping each other out, and embracing their own greatness.
