10:54 am - It's been an emotional rollercoaster
Like milk? Like Mad Men? Then you'll love Milk Men:'This isn't milk. It's... it's innocence'.

Sesame Street Mad Men: 'Well, it's been an emotional rollercoaster... good work sycophants' (sycophants? in a show for pre-schoolers? talk about stretching vocabulary).

Simpsons Mad Men

Mad Women: 'If men wrote copy, who would answer the phone?'

Is it just me, or is that last one really disturbing?

Of course, so's the original show.

I find SF stories and alternative histories that just swap men in charge for women in charge a bit annoying. It works much better with fanfiction and other stuff that is anchored in a TV show, for some reason. Perhaps because that's not trying to say anything directly about what 'would be', but making a pointed comment about what we see.

And Mad Men is so sexist. I mean it is about sexist people. Also, I like the bitchy submissive hetero guys in this video. Just as I like the women in Mad Men, operating in a world that is against them. Though perhaps I am reading too much into what is just a jokey video.
