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.)

In America, one dumb mistake can hang over your head forever.

Nearly 30% of the American adult population — about 70 million people — have at least one criminal conviction that can prevent them from being treated equally when it comes to everything from job and housing opportunities to child custody.

Twenty million of these Americans have felony convictions that can destroy their chances of making a comfortable living and prevents them from voting out the lawmakers who imprisoned them.

Many of these convictions are drug-related and stem from the War on Drugs that began in the U.S. '80s. This war has unfairly targeted the minority community, especially African-Americans.

Climate change is happening because the earth is warming at an accelerated rate, a significant portion of that acceleration is due to human activity, and not taking measures to mitigate it will have disastrous consequences for life as we know it.

In other words: Earth is heating up, it's kinda our fault, and if we don't fix it, we're screwed.

This is the consensus of the vast majority of the world's scientists who study such things for a living. Case closed. End of story.

How do we know this to be true? Because pretty much every reputable scientific organization on the planet has examined and endorsed these conclusions. Thousands of climate studies have been done, and multiple peer-reviewed studies have been done on those studies, showing that somewhere between 84 and 97 percent of active climate science experts support these conclusions. In fact, the majority of those studies put the consensus well above 90%.

Two years ago, a tweet featuring the invoice for a fixed boiler went viral because the customer, a 91-year-old woman with leukemia, received the services for free.

"No charge for this lady under any circumstances," the invoice read. "We will be available 24 hours to help her and keep her as comfortable as possible."

The repair was done by James Anderson, 52, a father-of-five from Burnley, England. "James is an absolute star, it was overwhelming to see that it cost nothing," the woman's daughter told CNN.

I live in a family with various food intolerances. Thankfully, none of them are super serious, but we are familiar with the challenges of finding alternatives to certain foods, constantly checking labels, and asking restaurants about their ingredients.

In our family, if someone accidentally eats something they shouldn't, it's mainly a bit of inconvenient discomfort. For those with truly life-threatening food allergies, the stakes are much higher.

I can't imagine the ongoing stress of deadly allergy, especially for parents trying to keep their little ones safe.
