Questions, Questions

Conservative blogger Bob Krumm points us to a new study that indicates that men and women process "funny" differently. This, he says, explains why his wife doesn't find Monty Python funny. I do find Monty Python funny. I wonder if this makes me unwomanly? If I am indeed unwomanly, why did I find myself faced with the most feminine of questions last night as I was getting ready for bed: What the hell happened to my tits? There's a bruise on the right one and a huge c-shaped red, tender mark on each side. I'm still not sure what the bruise is from, which is disappointing, but after careful pushing and smooshing in front of the mirror, I figured out that the two marks were only two marks with a bra off. Push the girls together and it's obvious that it's one big crescent just the size of a dinner plate. Yes, apparently, I burned myself on the spaghetti last night. More disturbing than that is that, apparently, I've become so used to just resting hot things on my tits that I didn't notice that I was actually burning myself. Which, you have to admit, is pretty funny. Not as funny as the best show to ever appear on BBC America (not counting Monty Python)--the Trailer Park Boys--but still pretty funny. Speaking of the Trailer Park Boys, apparently there's going to be a movie. How happy am I?

I'm not sure if I prefer the cooter-talk, or this. Either way, I'm getting a pretty good introduction to your naughty bits for a girl I've never met.

Nothing is funnier than Blackadder. Nothing.

And I'll go to my grave hating Benny Hill.

How about Mel Brooks? It seems females usually stare blankly at Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, or The Producers while the guys are laughing it up.

Exador, it's all cooters and tits here at Tiny Cat Pants. Well, cooters, tits, and feminism. I think it's a nice mix.

Kat, I'm pretty sure that there's nothing I could say that would sway you from your position, but I still think you'd like Trailer Park Boys.

Lee, I got you covered in the next post.

I think the question of how people find Monty Python funny is more interesting than whether they find it funny. I'd maintain that the Brits and the 'Mericans laugh at elements of it for different reasons. Much of what forms the fabric of its strangeness in the States seems to me to be just part of the cultural fabric in a British context.

John Cleese is touring NZ at the mo', explaining in a press conference that he came here for the love of Pinot Noir. Alco-tourism; is there any better kind?
