Tina Fey Talks Women in Comedy and/or on the Cover of Maxim


I suggested that we rename the site TotallyTina.com; Adam promised he’d look into it. Until then, NPR’s interview with Tina Fey about Bossypants will have to suffice. “It’s just such a tangled-up issue, the way women present themselves — whether or not they choose to put their thumbs in their panties on the cover of Maxim and judge each other back and forth on it,” Fey says. “It’s a complicated issue, and we didn’t go much further on saying anything other than to say, ‘Yeah, it’s a complicated issue and we’re all kind of figuring it out as we go.’” Putting your thumbs in your panties/manties while reading TotallyTina, however, is extremely encouraged.
