I may be dim and misinformed, but what does Jewish cuisine have to do with attitudes towards (awesome) female weightlifters ?

Evidence suggests men gladly share photograph of (allegedly theirs) genitals.
Even if they are ex-NSA and thus should know better.
Even if said genitals look like a dead newborn mouse.

Actually, being not-quite-white not-quite-straight woman of non-US descent, I have a hard time "getting" the list.
It's a nice mild-mannered list of mild-mannered and widely appreciated literature.

For me, the "main course" of the joke here are these hysterical overreactions on the part of people who aren't even supposed to have a uterus (ta!).
As far as I am concerned, it goes like this:
Nicole:
White men read highbrow literature
Internet dudebros:
HOW DARE YOU INSINUATE THAT WE READ LITERATURE, YOU SEXIST RACIST [DATA EXPUNGED]
And then a mid-sized US city drowns entirely in dudebro tears


Preposterous.

However, there's apparently something about the list that makes these crybabies turn themselves inside out like a goddamn sea cucumber.

Francois, could you lend me a hand and perhaps explain what exactly is there in this list that has apparently wounded the self-esteem of so many dudebros?

This is hilarious.

Also kinda sad.

And makes me wonder what exactly did people who were offended... perceive ? I mean, it's a very mild-mannered and tame list, nothing particularly questionable there...

Their response is a joke in itself

It was not a very popular star system, I s'pose

Well, gadgetry tends to get cheaper, so maybe mineral-hauling spaceships of THE FUTURE would be only moderately expensive instead of preposterously expensive

This uncomfortably reminded me of a boy I had bullied at school. I don't even really know why I did that, it wasn't particularly fun (Picking fights with boys was usually fun because they tended to underestimate me due to me being, you know, a girl, which made beating them into bloody tears all that more...satisfying, future reprimands and threats of law involvement be damned)
He never fought back. And never ran. He didn't even cry. Just soaked up abuse.

I, well, kinda feel bad about it now...

Am I allowed to print this and put this on a wall or something ?

Is this how straight dudes feel at the movies all the time????” I hissed SEVERAL times during this movie. “Like someone carefully noted down your early pubescent fantasies and then threw 100 MILLION DOLLARS at them?”

This.

This entire thing is to female audiences what Star Wars is for early-teen males.
I don't know how the siblings did it, but they somehow did.
I just hope to $deity it won't spawn an equally absurd cosplay culture (I lie. I totally hope it does :) )

I loved this movie, even though I kind of loathed the "embrace your life and simple joys" ending (both because I hate the "embrace a simple life" stuff and because, as you pointed out, it's outrageously nonsensical plotwise. The W-siblings tried to go for some kind of morale for a modern parable, and what they ended up with is classical case of Reed Richards being useless)

It's basically 80-era camp, with a preposterous budget.
