British Comedy Fans:

The sad thing is, I don’t even find it funny although I definitely appreciate the effort. Why? Because this video is older than me and it’s still too real. Why do I feel like a meeting will be held just like this tomorrow in 2018? 

Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay’s 115th Birthday:

This google doodle was shown this past Monday to celebrate what would have been her 115th birthday.

“Chattopadhyay’s contributions to India were numerous. Though widely known for persuading Mahatma Gandhi to call upon women to march with him in the Indian Independence Movement in the early 20th century, she is also credited for reinvigorating the culture of Indian handicrafts, handlooms, and theatre, and for using cooperative grassroots movements to pave the way for a higher socioeconomic standard for Indian women around the country.”
