Marilyn Monroe said that if you can make a girl laugh, you can make her do anything. Anything is a bit extreme. Call me crazy, but I wouldn’t jump off a bridge for a guy who tells good jokes. However, Ms. Monroe was getting at something with her theory. According to a recent study by Stanford University, women use a man’s sense of humor as an indication of whether he would make a suitable partner and father.
The study involved scanning the brains of 22 girls and boys, ages six to thirteen, while they watched funny video clips. What they found was that the female brain had a stronger and more positive reaction to humor than the male brain.
I think we always knew this was true, but the only difference now is that we have science to back it up. At least from my own experience, I always go for the funny guy. Like Jason Seigel isn’t mildly attractive, but I shadily have a crush on him. Laughter is the best medicine, so if a guy makes you laugh, then he makes you happy.
For funny guys, this is great news. The rest of them are f*cked. The problem with being funny is that it’s almost genetic. You’ve either got it, or you don’t. There’s nothing worse than the guy who isn’t funny, yet awkwardly still tries to crack jokes.
