Big news today! I am happy to announce that Things My Ex Said: the Cabaret will premiere in Glasgow this May! Produced in association with The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, we’ll be lighting up the stage with some of your favorite quotes from this website and some of your favorite angsty 90s rock tunes.
More details to come! We’ll be on at the Grand Ballroom in Sloan’s the week of May 12!
And now, in honor of our first official band rehearsal and production meeting, here’s another quote you may be shocked to discover comes from my own life. (Two in a row! We’re on a spree!)
Guess which one I chose.
I’ve been thinking a lot about whether or not to ever post this comic. It’s not remotely funny. In fact, it still makes me pretty angry. But I keep thinking about all the joke articles saying the Malaysian plane has been found on the moon or in the Bermuda Triangle and such, and trying to imagine what coming across those jokes must feel like for the people who lost someone, rather than gained a mystery.
If you’ve been following TMXS for a while, you may remember that I have this pattern of being dumped when a terrible, horrendous disaster occurs close to my home. Well, here’s the next one.
Two things I want you to know about this scenario:
1. That man is a schoolteacher. 2. He’s also the person who indirectly inspired the creation of this website.
All I can say is, it does affect you. Because if it’s not a terrible shooting, it’s a plane crash. We are all destined to feel loss in searing, profound ways. Let’s use humor to rise above the pain and help each other. But if there’s one thing I hope this website teaches people, it’s to think about what you say, and what it means. We’re all in this together in a global way we’ve never been before.
If you’re as big a fan of Arrested Development as I am, you know there are few things better than a good incest joke. But perhaps not when the butt of the joke is you.
Okay. first of all, would anyone even question why two people have the same last name? I mean, you’re married. Duh. Second of all, why is that funny? And if you aren’t married and have the same last name–well, that’s cool, but you might want to just double check that family tree and be sure. And 3rd of all…. does he really think that’s clever? You might want to look into whether there’s something to be said for kissing cousins and IQ, after all.

Your wife is pregnant. Congratulations! Now, guest artist “O” reminds us to never, ever say this:
Seriously. You might as well relocate to the garage, because the sleeping on the couch is officially too good for you.
