Read this article after seeing it linked on feministing.

It is annoying for all the obvious reasons. I mean, you don't title an article "why women aren't funny" if you don't mean to be annoying. and misogynist.

But then I was thinking about all the funny ladies I know (there are a lot) and how most of them are gay. And for about one second I was extra annoyed, thinking maybe the douchetastical article had a point in mentioning that most of the funny ladies out there are kinda gay. Luckily I remembered that in reality I mostly only know homos. So maybe I'm not the best sample.

Then I thought of all the hilarious not-gay women who've made it big (from the brilliant comedic timing of Gracie Allen to Carol Burnett's slapstick to the sometimes too self deprecating Tina Fey) and kinda figured there are a lot more really funny straight girls out there just trying for a break.

So I got annoyed all over again.

This article is a couple of years old, so maybe it already made the rounds a long while ago. But in case it didn't, wtf? Am I just being touchy or is this thing really extra annoying?

Without clicking is this the Chris Hitchens article?

If so I think he was able to realign his worldview after being waterboarded. Now NOTHING and NOBODY is funny. Not even Dane Cook.
