Why Christopher Hitchens isn't funny
Now the opposite article has been written by Christopher Hitchens for the latest Vanity Fair, entitled, "Why Women Aren't Funny." The article was actually distributed by two very funny women, Julie Klausner and Jackie Clarke, last night at their very funny show, OBSESSED. And they pretty much ripped Hitchey a new dumb-hole, which he was asking for by writing such an article to begin with.
I read it this morning on the subway, and when I got to the following sentence, I decided the article had to be a satire: "For women, reproduction is, if not the only thing, certainly the main thing." He can't be serious. But if it is a satire, it's not funny.
I won't bother refuting the piece point by point, like that women don't make jokes "about calamitous visits to...the bathroom" (clearly he never visited the all-girl office I used to work in!), because as anyone who reads this blog knows, women are funny. DUH. This guy says farts are a major staple of humor (hence, why dudes are more adept to being funny than women), so let's all envision me ripping a major heater in Hitchens' face.
Now, that would be funny.
