The Comment Awards Are So PYNK


Hi, loves! Have you done yourself a kindness yet today?

This week, Abbi Jacobsen came out!

Laneia answered all your questions (so. many!) in Y’All Need Help.

The team talked about their Myers-Briggs types! (Is it possible to be two different things online and IRL? I think my E and I switch off.)

March Madness is over! Kate and Emaline won! Long live the baby gays, now and forever.

I am so excited for this! Read a F*cking Book: N.K. Jemisin’s Broken Earth Trilogy Is a Revolution.

I don’t know if you heard, but Janelle Monáe did a thing that might, ya know, make you feel.

The trailer for Pose is here, and people seem to be just a little excited about it.

And then there were your comments!

On The National Champion of Kissing: Kate and Emaline of “Everything Sucks”:

The Oh Mother, Where Art Thou Award to Chandra:

Magda is somehow behind this

The On The Menu Award to Alaina and Al:

Alaina: I FEEL GAY IN THIS CHILIS TONIGHT / Al: It’s certainly not happening at the Applebee’s.

And the Finger-Liking Clam Jam Award to Beth and Snaelle:

Beth: What a time to be alive. This is a clam jam. A clit hit. A beaver bop. A finger banger. / Sam: Hello Comment Awards! / Snaelle: I keep liking and then unliking and then reliking this comment when I realize that yes I definitely already liked it. That’s how finger-liking good it is. / Ava: I WISH I COULD LIKE THIS COMMENT A HUNDRED TIMES I AM SCREAMING

And on Which Characters Are Gay In The New “Oceans 8″ Trailer? (All Of Them):

  1. A very well deserved du-Al award, that I hope leaves them feeling in the Pynk!

    There’s one restaurant we never want to leave…

      • Oh my goodness! Is that Beth!!!! Shouldn’t we just be seeing you in No Filter now that you’re an internet star with 63 million followers??? And we’ll all be debating whether you actually post your own Instagram photos/ write your own tweets/ whatever or just have a dedicated team to do that for you now…

  2. I would like to share that I have seen the Applebee’s commercial 3 times since Heather’s article last week and each time the ad ended before Sam went home to her husband or GBF. I’d like to think Applebee’s heard our outcry and have since edited out that atrocity.

    • Really? Like reallyreally?
      Hey Applebee’s commercials intern, who reads this page: Well done and thank you!

      • It could be that the commercial was shortened for time purposes, but I am choosing to believe that it was all because of Heather’s article.

  3. i would like to use my acceptance speech to encourage you all to listen to Jameela Jamil’s episode of the JV Club podcast because it is the best and purest thing i have ever encountered and she is genuinely the kindest person (albeit exceptionally heterosexual).

  4. Next time I’m in the US I’m putting Applebee’s and Chili’s on my “places to visit” list.
    You know, right after The Met.
