According to your logic, JOKES = STUDIES. Christopher Hitchens was joking, and didn't use a control (snap! You just got nerd burned).Jonluw said:Or do they?michael87cn said:X-chromosome brain cells don't prevent you from telling a joke.
Think on that for a moment and you'll see my post start to make sense.
What studies, exactly, are you taking that claim from?
Because it seems to me that several times in this thread, studies have been cited that conclude that men are biologically "funnier" than women, since men need to be funny to court a woman, while women needn't be funny to draw the attention of a male. Natural selection takes care of the rest.
Now once again: I'm not saying the double x-chromosome means you're unable to do a stand up act. But I am saying that it might mean you're less likely to be good at it.
Terribly sorry for that.
