I want a soul mate who can sit me down, shut me up, tell me ten things I don’t already know, and make me laugh. I don’t care what you look like, just turn me on.

THAT IS SUCH A SMART JOKE, WHAT THE HELL

I 100% had to Google this joke and I have 300% more respect for Rugrats.

i don’t get it, can someone explain? [i searched their names and still don’t get it]

Mapplethorpe’s photography was usually very evocative and often contained nude subjects. She having people over who are “very conservative” so she is telling someone (I forget who on the show) to put a Norman Rockwell painting because his work is pretty conventionally accepted as important in american history. The people in his paintings were usually white Americans, often working class, and sometimes soldiers. His work was about pulling the country together, patriotism, american exceptionalism, etc. So more appropriate for a conservative visitor than a picture of a naked guy.

Dude.

"One of the magical things about theater is that it gathers a crowd of people in a quiet space, and each member of the audience gets to see how people respond differently to the different things being said on stage. The person next to you will laugh at something that you’d never think of laughing at, and you’ll get a glimpse into all the different ways of viewing the world. Unfortunately, so much theater today is less nuanced. It gives you a large dose of one way of thinking, in hopes of getting as many of the same type of people into the theater as possible."
