Cyanide and Happiness

Cyanide and Happiness began on YouTube seven years ago. These simply animated adult cartoons defy categorization. After watching a few episodes, we observed humor (sometimes sick humor), irony, sexuality, drugs, violence, and more in the cartoons. As an example of the nature of the humor, in the screenshot below, the background has a poster that says "An Apple A Day...means medical staff and equipment cutbacks. Try a burger." (Most, but not all, cartoons are captioned.)

She's So Right

In a series of very short episodes, a small group of women speak to the camera about different feminine topics. Each video is a fake public service announcement for women around the 1980s.  In these "public service announcements," the women use humor and wisdom to touch on a wide variety of topics including sexuality, assault, economic inequality, and politics. A total of 31 videos have been posted so far, and it appears that the series is still posting groups of videos monthly.
