The Runaway Truck Driver (Storytime: Aparna Nancherla) [via aboveaverage]

[Last night I got a chance to catch Aparna at the cyniccave in San Francisco. It was my first time seeing her live since Girl Talk 1 back in 2011(?). It’s amazing how much has changed since then. Aparna is still Aparna, but it’s delightful to see how casual and conversational her style has become. No gimmicks, no pander. Aparna Nancherla is going to be my go-to for a long time because everything points to a winding, evolving, engaging artistry. I can’t wait to see—and be amused wildly by—her again.]

"Here’s a weird prejudice I have: whenever I see a skeleton, I assume it’s a male."

"Basically, babies are the Green Eggs and Ham of people. You would not like them on your train, you would not like them on your plane, you would not like them with a mouse, you do not want them in your house.”

"I’m a nerdy white dude from the Bay Area, of course I’m not married to a white lady. Me and a white lady would be like be like wearing jeans and a jean jacket… It’s too matchy matchy."

"The thing about FDR is Elanor must have been so busy washing those leg blankets. You can’t meet the Czar of Russia, rolling around with stink knee."
