I'm sure we've all heard someone say they don't find women as comedic as men. Or, in the words of my first and easily least intellectually compatible boyfriend, "Lady comedians just aren't as funny. Sorry, but it's true."
While most of us believe that comedy is strictly subjective, there are still those people who insist gender plays a major part in whether something makes us chuckle, guffaw, or otherwise "ha-ha." And they say it's really only men who can get that reaction out of us, not women.
This claim has long been unsubstantiated and highly debated, but a new study has found that perhaps those sexist, self-proclaimed "comedy aficionados" were onto something all along.
Or not. You decide.
