How many feminists does it take to change a lightbulb?

OK, so who’s familiar with the joke about how many feminists it takes to change a lightbulb?

That’s not funny.

Yep, feminists even laugh at ourselves about not having a sense of humour.  So it must be time for me to share two websites that made me chuckle today.

Firstly, Jacky Fleming, whose postcards adorn much of my bathroom, has been making me laugh out loud for more than a decade.  Two new-to-me postcards:

Not for the faint-hearted – she has been poking fun at attitudes which support violence against women in ways which continue to educate through advocacy groups in the UK. 

And someone who clearly shares my luddism, which disposes me to like her even more.

Second website which made me laugh today goes to media commentator Reesh Lyon, with this list of what New Zealand politicians should sing when they leave parliament.  Not loving the one for Helen Clark, but very much enjoying the idea of Winston crooning “You’re so Vain”, and I’m positive Pita Sharples singing “Et Tu” would be a runaway hit…
