Amy Schumer teamed up with Bill Nye this week for a scathing take on people who say random happenings are a sign from “the universe” regarding their behavior.
“You know how I’ve been f*cking my married boss for like six months?” Schumer’s character tells a friend, explaining that while she was worried the man would never leave his wife, she divined a message from seeing a woman in her yoga class wearing a shirt that said, “Chill.”
“I was just like, ‘This is so the universe telling me, Girl just like, keep f*cking your married boss,’ right?” a relieved Schumer says.
Meanwhile, Nye appears in a “spaceship” reminiscent of the one featured in Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Cosmos, mockingly upending scientific convention by revealing that the universe is really less complex than people have been led to believe.
“Try to imagine the universe as a giant dream board on which women pin their wishes,” he says.
Of course, even the “Science Guy” has his limits — in this case, Schumer’s friend arguing that having to watch news coverage of a fatal cyclone is really “the universe” telling her she should keep watching New Girl on Hulu.
“That just makes no f*cking sense,” an exasperated Nye says. “I mean, that’s just bullsh*t.”

The View audience goes wild after Meghan McCain gets schooled on Pelosi’s ‘don’t mess with me’ moment
"The View" co-host Meghan McCain frequently cites politically themed T-shirts for sale online to take the public temperature about any given topic, but she didn't like that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi quickly started selling shirts based on her viral encounter with a conservative reporter.
The California Democrat unloaded on Sinclair Broadcasting reporter James Rosen, who asked if the impeachment process was based on her supposed hatred of President Donald Trump, and Pelosi capped off her scolding with the warning, "Don't mess with me."
"She did answer it masterfully," McCain said, "the problem is now she's selling T-shirts that say #don'tmesswithnancy. For $39, you can buy a T-shirt."
Trump in 2014 fantasized about Obama falling apart emotionally if he got impeached: ‘He’d be a mess!’
President Donald Trump has been angrily obsessing over House impeachment hearings -- just like he imagined former President Barack Obama would do if Republicans impeached him back in 2014.
Media Matters this week dug up an old "Fox & Friends" interview with Trump in which he mused over whether Obama secretly wanted to be impeached to boost his poll numbers, similar to what happened with former President Bill Clinton in the 1990s.
Rudy Giuliani is desperately trying to save Trump using ‘the word of a KGB agent’: CNN’s David Gergen
