Rapper Slash Amateur Gynecologist Awkwafina Explains It All

Would like to see a Lady/Awkwafina vagina-off. (Language mildly NSFW.)

More info on Awkwafina can be found here. She is also on Twitter and Facebook.

...And then Samara from The Ring crawls out from between the girl's legs and murders Awkwafina at the end! And there was much rejoicing.

Also, poor Janet Reno.

I think my main issue with this is that 5 hour PBS specials are generally amazing, and I would definitely consider that assessment of my vagina to be a plus.

Yeah...she kind of insults a lot of things/people unnecessarily while describing inferior lady junk, but it's still a pretty cool song.

@JG3 Yeah, "Your vag can't pass an HIV test"??? I feel like that, and the reference to hep C, is really shitty. Shaming people with HIV is really, really, really uncool in my book. I can laugh about a lot of other stuff in this song but I just don't think that that part is funny at all.

Emby

No mention that this is playing off Mickey Avalon's "My Dick"? Someone should do a mashup.

And uhhh that sounds way grosser than it's supposed to.

@Emby As a feminist, I'm really disappointed that this is so much worse than "My Dick".

julia

@Emby Margaret Cho did a better response to my dick.

Emby

@julia I can believe that. The Notorious C-H-O does things better than most people.

werewolfbarmitzvah

@julia AHA! I knew this sounded familiar!

@julia

Here's the music video to the Margaret Cho version.

Roxanne Rholes

Yes yes yes! Some friends and I have been sending lines from the Mickey Avalon song to each other for the last few days, so this is super timely. How do I make this woman be my best friend?

I'm Right on Top of that, Rose

I dislike: speaking in the 3rd person; rhyming genius with penis; armed genitalia.

PBS specials are cool, too. And stop shaming Janet Reno.

Ugh. Maybe I need to try this another day, when I've got more humor in my brain.

MoxyCrimeFighter

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose Nope, I'm with you. Even though some of the contrasts were funny, in general, I'm not on board with this song. I am very, very tired of hearing about peoples' genitals.

boysplz

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose Here! Listen to this awesome song about how awesome Janet Reno was when she was the Miami DA and cracked down on deadbeat dads.

Munich Pixie Dream Girl

@boysplz This song is the highlight of my day. It makes me want to have a dance party. A Janet Reno dance party.

Decca

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose The best genitalia songstress is clearly Lady. She knows genitals aren't funny; they're deadly serious.

Decca

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose I was against this video from "V @ G" which clearly spells Vatg. Wtf is a vatg?

I'm Right on Top of that, Rose

@Decca I have some reservations about spelling it v-a-g anyway, because my mind reads it as "vague." I like vadge. But yeah, v@g? Don't be so prude. Spell it out if you're so proud.

ironhoneybee

@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose: Yeah, this just generally makes me want to shake my fist and yell at her to get off my damn lawn.

OhMarie

Ok, I laughed SO hard at "my vag won best vag, your vag won best supporting vag."

JG3
JG3

@OhMarie That was definitely the best part.

Megasus

@OhMarie I laughed pretty hard at "your vag got poop on the windshielf" but I will always laugh at the word poop.

Rock and Roll Ken Doll

I really hate that I am now the kind of person who whines about posts in the comments, but might we please not have images of guns pointed directly at us?

Otherwise, I'm sure this is great.

OxfordComma

Oh, my God.

This just made me whole rotten day so much better.

catparty

she should have a song feat. dr. octagon, the original rapper-gynecologist!

Amphora

@catparty I would love that so much I'd buy it on iTunes.

chrysopoeia

@catparty Moose bumps.

Jay Green

holy shit this is the most amazing thing i've seen all week

It's kinda sad that the only person we can use to insult Awkwafina is Margaret Cho. This is just an example of how there is absolutely no visibility of Asian performers -- we can't even watch one without comparing her to uh, the only other Asian comedienne out there. If Awkwafina was white, would you guys compare her to Ellen Degeneres or Mitch Hedburg? Why don't we compare her to Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee? Also Margaret Cho can't rap, Awkwafina can.

And yes, 5-hour PBS specials are amazing -- I don't know why that would be a bad thing. If a 5-hour PBS special was projected onto a vagina, in front of my face. I would watch it.

hollysh

@DaveSchloss I think it's less about them both being Asian and more to do with the fact that they spoofed the same Mickey Avalon song. That said, there is totally a problem with a lack of visibility for Asian performers, especially women. I just don't think this is a clear example of it as the two performances are so closely related!

Emby

@DaveSchloss There is a paucity of women who have rapped vagina-centric callbacks to the Mickey Avalon song "My Dick." The two most notable happen to be of Asian descent. I applaud your vigilance, but this happens to be an example of coincidence, not racism.

totallyunoriginal

My coworker directed this video! Totally awesome that it ended up on the Hairpin!

DaveSchloss

@hollysh @emby This was a rip on Mickey Avalon's song "My Dick," clearly, not Margaret Cho's "My Puss." And plus, are you guys ripping apart these ladies? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbzAKtoqMSE

I wonder if they're getting nitpicked about biting Margaret Cho.

Emby

@DaveSchloss Jesus, did you fucking fail every reading comprehension test ever devised? I was the first fucking person on the thread to point out that it was playing off "My Dick." We're noting that THAT'S the reason we're comparing it to Margaret Cho, because that's the only other widely known response to "My Dick," not because they're both Asian. I can't tell if you're willfully misreading or just dumber than a sack of broken forks.

Reginal T. Squirge

Finally got around to watching this...

Aside from the paper-thin rhymes and super hard struggles to stay on beat, there are some good jokes. So... a lot like Donald Glover.

... also, is this a milestone in female Asian rappers? I can't recall any before this woman, off the top of my head.

Good article. It is unfortunate that over the last 10 years, the travel industry has already been able to to take on terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, flu virus, swine flu, as well as the first ever real global downturn. Through all of it the industry has proven to be powerful, resilient and also dynamic, discovering new solutions to deal with adversity. There are usually fresh difficulties and the opportunity to which the business must just as before adapt and behave. Jungle Heat Hack
