Inspired by our viral McSweeney’s piece, Jokes I’ve Told That My Male Colleagues Didn’t Like, Jokes to Offend Men transforms classic joke setups into sharp commentary about the everyday and structural sexism that pervades all facets of life. Jokes to Offend Men arms readers with humorous quips to shut down workplace underminers, condescending uncles, and dismissive doctors, or to share with their exhausted friends at the end of a long day. A cathartic take on the old-fashioned joke book, Jokes to Offend Men is for anyone who's ever been told to "lighten up, it's just a joke!"


Allison Kelley, Danielle Kraese, Kate Herzlin, and Ysabel Yates are humor and satire writers based in New York City. Their work has been featured in such publications as The New York Times, The New Yorker, Reductress, McSweeney's Internet Tendency, and more.
