“2 Broke Girls” Learn to Circulate

2 Broke Girls “And the Petty Cash” is mostly about the Max and Johnny storyline. So there was that. There were also multiple gay jokes and some physical comedy which I enjoyed. When Max wanted to leave without the 500 dollars I thought to myself, “they can’t be that broke.” For 500 dollars you could parade all of my exes, anyone that’s ever turned me down, and every single person I have ever had an awkward interaction with in front of me while they insulted the cupcakes I baked and made out with each other. That’s what being broke is like.

The “young people please relate to this show” joke

Johnny: Max, it’s complicated.
Max: What are we, on Facebook?

The gay joke

Max: This is my pattern, ok. I fall for the wrong guy. I find out they’re with a girl, a bottle, or a needle and I move on. Sometimes I use a bottle to help me do it. Or a needle. Or a girl.

The edgy joke

Max: Giving into feelings is for rich people. Regular people just have to get up, get drunk, and go fulfill their baby-sitting duties.

The non-PC joke

Han: Back off Tiger Mom!

The “is this racist joke?”

Caroline: Fine. Tell me one other reason he could possibly be in here.
Max:
  He needs Han to solve a complex math problem?

The vagina joke

Caroline: I was only gone twenty minutes. What’d you do, shine a bat signal out of your vagina?

The joke that leads to a lot of questions

Max: I never thought that waking up in bed with another woman and frosting on my boobs would be this depressing.

Why wouldn’t you dispose of the frosting before you went to sleep? Is frosting hard to remove from body parts? Would you use bowl licking techniques or some other way? I feel like you never really get it all out of the bowl. Same goes for when it’s off of boobs?

Brittani Nichols is a Los Angeles based comedy person. When she's not tweeting about white people or watching television, she's probably eating pizza. Actually, she's probably doing all three of those things concurrently and when she's not doing THAT, she's sleeping. Brittani also went to Yale and feels weird about mentioning it but wants you to know.

  1. I sell cupcakes and the most I’ve made so far at a farmers market, after 10 hours of selling, is $320. So thanks for taking my triumph and turning it into a wet fart, 2 broke girls.

    As for your frosting questions:
    1) Frosting IS hard to get off clothes, and sometimes even body parts when the frosting hardens, gets all crusty and gross. Even vanilla buttercream can have some staying power and if its chocolate frosting, well fuck.

    2)You wouldn’t use bowl licking techniques. The last thing you ever want to eat after spending hours making frosting is frosting.

    3)Spatulas work miracles on getting it all out of the bowl.

    4)Boobs are great.

  2. You know, I hated this show the first time I watched it. I gave it another try last week and then this week and either it’s improved, which I think is the case, or I’ve just gotten less picky, which is less likely.

    I think this is kinda like a present day version of Laverne and Shirley, except a lot more sexual and more boobs. They are even getting into some of the physical comedy now, which I like.

  3. i actually watched this this week for some reason, i think because it was on and i was in the room. i was really confused about how they woke up with cupcakes in their shirts. like that girl emptied cupcakes from her shirt, that’s weird.

    also i find the sets they are using to look like williamsburg hilarious. it’s like the hipster sitcom equivalent of the new york new york casino in las vegas.

    Yeeep. What bothers me most about this show is how it’s called 2 Broke Girls, but the writers seem to have no concept of what it’s like to be broke. See also: when Caroline just up and bought a bed. Those things are expensive!
