The “So Did the Fat Lady” episode of Louie — which generated a lot of buzz — just earned Louis C.K an Emmy for outstanding writing in a comedy series.

Louie, who is also overweight, rejects Vanessa (Sarah Baker) when she asks him out because of her appearance. Vanessa then schools Louie about what it’s like “to be the fat girl,” and society’s double standards about weight.

Here’s what Louis C.K. said about that scene in our recent interview:

"I’ve been several weights in my life and I know what it feels like to feel like you’re on the outside looking in [on] the real party in life… In school you’re confronted with kids saying stuff to you. I was heavy for parts of my school life, or awkward… At least in high school kids make fun of you. After high school, you’re just alone. There’s just no people. You just get left alone. I know what it feels like to feel that way. I’m certainly not as heavy as some people but I’ve been heavy and I went bald at like 24, so I’ve always thought about it."

i would still marry you.

The Internet knows where your cat lives
A Florida State University professor has taken cat pictures shared on social media and plotted them on a global map. Is your cat on the map?

At first I was upset to see that my kitties weren’t on the map but then I remembered that my lease doesn’t allow cats, so it’s a good thing my landlords can’t look me up on this website. -____-

    You have to wait for the facts before you talk about Ferguson!

  • Eyewitnesses:

    He was on his knees with his hands up.

  • Medical examiner:

    There was no gunpowder residue on Mike Brown, no sign of struggle, and there were entry wounds on the inside of his arms and the top of his head, implying he was on his knees with his hands up.

  • Convenience store owner and clerk:

    There was no robbery and we didn't call the cops.

  • Ferguson PD:

    Okay, we admit it, Wilson didn't know anything happened at the convenience store and we determined no crime was committed.

    Nobody can say what happened! We still have to wait for the facts to come in!
