Fuuny man, funny women

“Why are men, taken on average and as a whole, funnier than women?” inquired Christopher Hitchens in “Why Women Aren’t Funny,” Vanity Fair, January 2007.

That’s a good question. And by that I mean, fuck you.
~Elissa Bassist collects a bunch of writing by women from McSweeneys.net.


I wonder if McSweeney's thinks it's funny to publish in such a small font. You decide.

Men are certainly more unintentionally funny than women.

Not the women I know.

I could be lost for days again as I read those posts on the list.

Christopher Hitchens is hanging out with the wrong women, apparently.

Christopher Hitchens is, sadly, a prig. He writes well but he's got a bit of a stick up his ass.

i agree. he is a serious prig. plus, i think he's overcompensating for his small penis.

I'm funnier than my wife, but not as drunk as Christopher Hitchens.

Utah Savage said...

Randal, just know that we all assume you have a bigger dick than Christopher Hitchens.

"However, there is something that you absolutely never hear from a male friend who is hymning his latest (female) love interest: "She's a real honey, has a life of her own … [interlude for attributes that are none of your business] … and, man, does she ever make 'em laugh."

Well that is the dumbest ass statement I've read in a while. The simple answer to the implied question is, THE...MALE...EGO. No macho man (I AM NOT including myself here) would ever admit that a woman is as funny, if not funnier than he. Ever. He would consider that a threat to his maleness.

I don't.

I happen to be attracted to funny women and I consider myself a humorous guy. I can't imagine being in a relationship with a nitwitted female who simply listened and never bantered humorously with me. And, most importantly I find women as whole, a hellofa lot more sophisticated in their humor.
