so, I read Office’s Mindy Kaling’s book Is everyone hanging out without me (and other concerns) and it’s really funny. Not Sedaris or Tina Fey hilarious, but still very funny. You’ve probably seen an extract on The New Yorker about types of women in comedies. If you haven’t, you can remedy the mistake now. After reading her book, I also discovered her blog, and that’s my new guilty pleasure –when I really want to procrastinate I daydream of us being friends and laughing over the same things in LA.
Daydreaming of sunny LA was easier today that the weather has been freakishly nice. Like a trap. I expect nothing less than a tornado in the next few days.
Back to Mindy Kaling and funny girls. Of course she doesn’t even bother answering if women have a sense of humor after all, the trendiest debate circa 2010, which took me by surprise then, not because people realized that women can be funny, but because they ever doubted it, as if this noble characteristic was male only, the virtue that only comes with a penis.
Speaking of shocks, let’s all keep a moment of silence regretting again this embarrassing mistake of an old article on Marie Claire (we’re only human right?), that stated that men don’t like funny women and concluded with the unforgettable quotation of a guy’s “I don’t want you to make me laugh, I just want you to make me horny”, a phrase that burned a hole on the fabric of western civilization the size of a Kardashian ass.
Time’s up, go back to laughing out loud and never let anyone convince you it’s not hot.
