My crush on Kristin Schaal keeps growing.

I get it, society - women who have passed their sell-by date (which is around 21 at this point, I think), should not be sexual beings. The stupid "cougar" label is something I've had to deal with from the occasional young ignoramus patriarchy peddler, and I'm only in my thirties! Thankfully, Kristin Schaal takes the whole concept to task on The Daily Show. Happy Friday!

I wish I had a better way to express how hard I laughed than 'LOL' or 'LMAO' because it's in the magnitutde of LOL + LMAO -- thank youuuu ahahahahahaaaaaaaa!!

ah, and also, was regaled with that label about two weeks ago while crossing the street. Two high schoolers in a beat-down Jeep screamed "COUGAR! COUGAR! COUGAR WHOOOOOOO!!"

It took a couple of seconds to register that they were screaming at ME. So apparently, wearing a tailored pantsuit puts one in the cougar ranks, even if you're still in your twenties :O

oops! almost forgot: back in my dorm days, the term "skeezer" was the one that we applied to old men prowling Cal State LA for young girlfriends.

Yes, we heard it applied by guys to not-so-fresh chicks, but I guess it felt natural because it sounds like a skeezy geezer -- 'night ;D

I've alluded to this before in a previous thread, but the "cougar" label is a bit of a double-edged sword. On one hand, it can be a derisive term to remind women over the age of 30 or so what they "shouldn't" be doing. On the other hand, there seems to be this idea, encapsulated in the term "cougar", that "older" women are super-sexual and just waiting to be ravished by 18-22 year old guys, something men in said demographic seem to actually believe.

The Daily Show rocks. Kristin Schaal is so cute. Anyone know where else to get clips of her?

I recently ran across a hilarious one - Kristin Schaal catches her friend "master basting" - you have to watch it:
