So Dave and I have been having a conversation lately about what’s funny, and if it’s different for men and women. Mostly, it comes up because there are certain things I just do NOT think are funny, but most guys do. Like The Big Lebowski (or any other Coen brothers movie, really), and Monty Python, and Mr. Show.
We both like Ali G, but different parts, and for different reasons. So we’ve been talking, and I’ve been thinking about what gender has to do with humor. Some other friends hypothesize that women like humor where they can relate to the situation, and guys like more detached, absurd or physical humor.
I’m not sure though…I’d love to hear what other people think. And is there anything out there that most women find funny that men don’t?
