An investigation of why we clap for people doing the least, and earnest recommendations of art, music, and writing you should applaud.
Shelby writes a satyrical newsletter about why we clap for people giving the least effort. It all started out as an Instagram account full of drawings giving out the ‘awards for good boys’ where she depicted men wanting praise for being ‘good boys’ and later it morphed into a newsletter. In Please Clap Shelby analyses our online world, modern dating life, and internet dramas illustrating everything with her famous drawings. From what it means to be a sexist woman, to the death of wife guys, her whimsy essays are always complimented with an image of Clem (Shelby’s dog that co-signs every issue).
