Mothers can agree that the greatest gift is having a child.

But even blessings such as the miracle of birth have consequences, say, on the social lives of parents.


Amy Schumer and her husband Chris Fischer welcomed their first "royal baby" boy on May 5 – within an hour and a half before Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their first child who is also a boy.

However, as far as actress Jennifer Lawrence is concerned, it's "ho's before bro's," or in this case, babies.

While her bestie is undoubtedly over the moon for Schumer – who suffered from a debilitating pregnancy – Lawrence misses her late night interactions with Schumer prior to the arrival of baby Gene Attell Fischer.

Lawrence's frustration was evident in a hilarious text exchange that wound up being a one-sided convo for the Dark Phoenix and The Hunger Games actress.

Schumer shared a screenshot of the text in which Lawrence had an urgent inquiry pertaining to Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale.

Lawrence just needed to know about a certain plot point from the critically-acclaimed show.

"You up? I have questions about hand maids take."
"Tale"
"It's an emergency"

When she didn't hear back from Schumer, who presumably used to be a night owl before adjusting to motherhood, Lawrence cranked things up a notch.

"Amy!!! What did she do on season 1 to deserve being in the gallows on season 2"

After carrying on a conversation with herself, Lawrence finally addressed something based on a hunch.

"I can't remember where I left off. Are you asleep bc of the baby??? Are you asleep before 11? Is this bc of the baby? Don't make me resent the baby"
"Wow"
"Ur really asleep before 11. I'll be damned"

The Trainwreck actress and comedian WAS asleep and responded to Lawrence the following morning.

"Everybody keeping their cool about me having a baby," Schumer wrote, with the words scrawled across a screenshot of Lawrence's needy text.




On June 5, Schumer acknowledged a sacrifice had to be made.

"Oh ok so I can't watch handmaids anymore. #filledwithregret"

This isn't the first time Lawrence engaged in a solo convo with Schumer via text.

In April, she wrote:

"What're you doing tonight? You and chris wanna get dinner? Or hang? Also about to go to the park."

After she was left hanging, Lawrence canceled the proposed rendezvous and wrote:

"Haha I can't get dinner tonight I have plans."

Schumer finally chimed in and quipped:

"Good talk."

Schumer and Lawrence have been very close since the pair were spotted vacationing in the Hamptons in 2015.

A movie starring the two as sisters and written by both of them is still in development.

During her pregnancy, Schumer suffered from a condition called hyperemesis gravidarum in which the 37-year-old actress had perpetual morning sickness and left her dehydrated, forcing her to cancel shows.

After successfully giving birth to Gene, courtesy of her birthing team including her husband Chris's doula, she wrote in an empowering pregnancy takeaway post:

"Men are cool and whatever but women are f*****g warriors and capable of anything."

It's been over a month, and as Schumer is acclimating to her new role as a mom, dishing on The Handmaid's Tale can wait.

Right, Auntie Jennifer?

If you missed what happened in season 1 OR season 2 of The Handmaid's Tale, you can get season 1 here and season 2 here. Of course, you could always read the book.

Have you ever been reading a book, watching a movie, or even sitting down for a fantastical cartoon and began to salivate when the characters dig into some doozy of a made up food?

You're not alone.

Food is apparently fertile ground for creativity. Authors, movie directors, and animators all can't help but put a little extra time and effort into the process of making characters' tasty delights mouthwatering even for audiences on the other side of the screen.

Read on for a perfect mixture of nostalgia and hunger.

AllWhammyNoMorals asked, "What's a fictional food you've always wanted to try?"

Some people were all about the magical foods eaten in the magical places. They couldn't help but wish they could bite into something with fantastical properties and unearthly deliciousness.

Nutritious

"Enchanted golden apple" -- DabbingIsSo2015

"The Minecraft eating sounds make me hungry" -- FishingHobo

"Gotta love that health regeneration" -- r2celjazz

"Pretty sure those are based off the golden apples that grant immortality. Norse mythology I think?" -- Raven_of_Blades

Take Your Pick

"Nearly any food from Charlie and the Chocolate factory" -- CrimsonFox100

"Came here to say snozzberries!" -- Utah_Writer

"Everlasting Gobstoppers #1, but also when they're free to roam near the chocolate river and the entire environment is edible." -- devo9er

Peak Efficiency

"Lembas" -- Roxwords

"The one that fills you with just a bite? My fat a** would be making sandwiches with two lembas breads and putting bacon, avocado and cheese inside. Then probably go for some dessert afterwards. No wonder why those elves are all skinny, eating just one measly bite of this stuff." -- sushister

Some people got stuck on the foods they saw in the cartoons they watched growing up. The vibrant colors, the artistic sounds, and the exaggerated movements all come together to form some good-looking fake grub.

The One and Only

"Krabby patty 🍔" -- Cat_xox

"And a kelp shake" -- titsclitsntennerbits

"As a kid I always pretended burgers from McDonalds were Krabby Patties, heck from time to time I still do for the nostalgia of it all. Many of my friends did the same thing." -- Thisissuchadragtodo

Cheeeeeeeeese

"The pizza from an extremely goofy movie. The stringy cheese just looked magical lol" -- ES_Verified

"The pizza in the old TMNT cartoon as well." -- gate_of_steiner85

"Only bested by the pizza from All Dogs Go to Heaven." -- Purdaddy

Get a Big Old Chunk

"Those giant turkey drumsticks in old cartoons that characters would tear huge chunks out of. Those things looked amazing, turkey drumsticks in real life suck and are annoying to eat."

-- Ozwaldo

Slurp, Slurp, Slurp

"Every bowl of ramen on any anime, ever." -- Cat_xox

"Studio Ghibli eggs and bacon" -- DrManhattan_DDM

"Honestly, any food in anime. I swear to god half the budget no matter what the studio goes into making the food look absolutely delicious." -- Viridun

Finally, some highlighted the things that aren't quite so far-fetched, but still far enough away that it's nothing we'll be eating anytime soon.

That tease can be enough to make your mouth water.

What's In It??

"Butter beer" -- Damn_Dog_Inappropes

"came here to say this. i was pretty disappointed with the universal studio version which was over the top sweet. it was more of a butterscotch root beer. i imagine butter beer to be something more like butter and beer, which wouldn't be crazy sweet, but would have a very deep rich flavor" -- crazyskiingsloth

Slice of the Future

"The microwave pizzas in back to the future two" -- biggiemick91

"I've been fascinated with those for years! They just look so good!" -- skoros

As Sweet As They Had

"The Turkish Delight from Lion Witch & Wardrobe. The real ones I had weren't bad but nothing special." -- spoon_shaped_spoon

"Came here to say this. I know it's a real thing, but I always imagined that it must have been amazing to betray your siblings over." -- la_yes

"You're used to freely available too sweet sweets. For a WW2 era schoolkid, it would have represented all the sweets for an entire year." -- ResponsibleLimeade



Here's hoping you made it through the list without going into kitchen for some snack you didn't actually need.

When a movie rakes in a ton of cash at the box office, the studio that made it has only one thing on its mind: "How do we keep shaking this money tree?"

Unfortunately, that means they make sequels, sometimes sequels on sequels on sequels.

Oftentimes I like to do my best Ghostface impression and aggressively ask people what their favorite scary movies are. Because I personally have a lot! At the same time, I'm also terrified that at any point, I could end up getting my head punched off by Jason Vorhees (Part 8 of the series--best one IMO).

I hate hypocrites. They are the bane of my existence. All you have to do is stand behind your words. How hard is that? You said them. I especially get peeved when people bloviate on a topic and condemn and holler but then when it comes to them doing it... silence.

Redditor u/ErrForceOnes wanted to know about the moments people chose to curiously "pay no mind" by asking... What is a GIANT hypocrisy that no one seems to mind?
