New Study Finds Women Aren’t as Funny as Men

Imagine my shock.

Published

A new study has found that women aren’t as funny as men.

I know, hard to believe.

The study, published by the Journal of Research in Personality, asked subjects to write a funny caption for a cartoon that was then judged by a panel of judges.

Researchers found that 63 per cent of men were deemed to be funnier than the average woman.

The study included over 5500 participants, 67 per cent of whom were women, eliminating and in fact overcompensating for any potential gender bias. It also involved a third-party evaluation of the subjects by someone who was not aware of the subject’s gender.

“It means that to the best of our knowledge, on average, men appear to have higher humor production ability than women,” said Gil Greengross, an evolutionary psychologist at Aberystwyth University in Wales.

She also noted that “a great sense of humor” was one of the signals of mate quality when it comes to females choosing a man.

“Humor is strongly correlated with intelligence, which explains why women value men with a great sense of humor, as intelligence was crucial for survival throughout our evolutionary history when we mostly lived in hunter-gatherer groups,” said Greengross.

Christopher Hitchens was right.

Still Too White: Barnes & Noble Cancels ‘Race Switch’ Classic Novels

Published

Critics complained “diversity” covers of books were “fake” because characters inside are still white

Barnes & Noble has cancelled a line of ‘diversity edition’ classic novels because critics complained they were not woke enough.

The range, slated to coincide with Black History Month, features covers of characters like Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, but with the protagonist wearing a turban, Frankenstein’s Monster with brown skin rather than green (it’s green because it’s dead…duh), and Juliet from Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet with brown skin and a headscarf.

Clearly proud of how woke it was being, B&N bragged that “For the first time ever, all parents will be able to pick up a book and see themselves in a story.”

However, the fad was quickly shot down by critics because the classic novels themselves are unchanged beyond the cover.

B&N immediately caved, canceling the launch and issuing a statement that said “We acknowledge the voices who have expressed concerns about the Diverse Editions project at our Barnes & Noble Fifth Avenue store and have decided to suspend the initiative. The covers are not a substitute for black voices or writers of color, whose work and voices deserve to be heard. The booksellers who championed this initiative did so convinced it would help drive engagement with these classic titles.”

This perfectly encapsulates how meaningless woke virtue signalling is infecting every corner of our society.

Don’t judge a book by its cover.

Ari Shaffir on Kobe Bryant’s Death: “Hollywood Liberals Enjoy Rooting For the Lakers More Than They Dislike Rape”

Comedian’s comments spark outrage.

Published

on

Comedian Ari Shaffir has stoked controversy after he reacted to the death of Kobe Bryant by tweeting, “Hollywood liberals who attack comedy enjoy rooting for the Lakers more than they dislike rape.”

Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter were among nine people tragically killed when a helicopter crashed in California in foggy weather yesterday.

While most people responded by celebrating Bryant’s basketball career, Shaffir took to Twitter to call out “Hollywood liberals” for glamorizing Bryant despite allegations that he raped a 19-year-old girl.

The 19-year-old hotel employee claimed Bryant raped her in the summer of 2003 but the case was later dropped after the accuser refused to testify at the trial.

Bryant apologized to the girl but said he believed the encounter to be consensual and later settled with her in a separate civil lawsuit.

“Kobe Bryant died 23 years too late today,” tweeted Shaffir. “He got away with rape because all the Hollywood liberals who attack comedy enjoy rooting for the Lakers more than they dislike rape. Big ups to the hero who forgot to gas up his chopper. I hate the Lakers. What a great day! #Fuckthelakers.”

In a separate video, Shaffir stated, “A guy who got away with rape got his today, Kobe Bryant is gone!”

The comedian’s comments provoked the fury of others on Twitter.

“He’s got 4 kids man. It’s one thing to go dark if it’s genuinely funny, but this is just horrible. Like honestly how little empathy do you have?” asked one.

“That rape allegation never added up to anything, kinda like your shit comedy career,” added another.

“I’m a conservative, and this is too far, even for you. I hope you never get another gig. You’re a terrible person,” tweeted another.

However, Shaffir was by no means alone in the manner of his response. Numerous other prominent Twitter personalities and commentators reacted to Bryant’s death by bringing up the rape allegations against him.

Shaffir later claimed “I was hacked,” in what was obviously a sarcastic tweet.
