, you know him? That guy who made his mark by being on KROQ's "LoveLine" and can be seen on past season's of the hilariously funny Dancing With the Stars and Celebrity Apprentice?
Yeah, him. Tall, goofy looking, and, apparently, an idiot.
Well, he was recently quoted in the Post as saying the following:
POST: The lesson you learned from a sexual harassment seminar was “Don’t hire chicks.” Do you hate working with women?
AC: "No. But they make you hire a certain number of chicks, and they’re always the least funny on the writing staff. The reason why you know more funny dudes than funny chicks is that dudes are funnier than chicks. If my daughter has a mediocre sense of humor, I’m just gonna tell her, “Be a staff writer for a sitcom. Because they’ll have to hire you, they can’t really fire you, and you don’t have to produce that much. It’ll be awesome.”
So, all you women out there (and little girls too) take note. YOU'RE NOT FUNNY. Not now, not ever. That's right. The brilliantly witty has spoken.
Hmm, I wonder what would have happened if the following un-funny, mediocre chicks were ever told this....
2. Imogene Coca
3. Carol Burnett
5. Nora Ephron
6. Anne Lamott
7. Diane English
9. Dorothy Parker
10. Maya Rudolph
11. Melissa McCarthy
12. Marta Kauffman
14. Tina Fey
15. Sarah Silverman
16. Ruth Buzzi
17. Gilda Radner
18. Fran Lebowitz
19. Julia Louis-Dreyfus
20. Kathy Griffin
21. Wanda Sykes
22. Amy Poehler
23. Erma Bombeck
23. Bea Arthur
24. Betty White
27. Nancy Meyers
29. Rachel Maddow (not only not funny, not smart -- poor thing)
30. Diane Keaton
And these are just the well known un-funny ladies. There are countless television writers, cartoon writers, comic book writers, playwrights, authors, actors, bloggers, moms, daughters, sisters, aunts and columnists who are so incredibly not funny living all over the planet.
That's right, Adam. We exist, we're mediocre and we're here to stay, damnit!
But, just a thought... perhaps if women were given the same freedom to say what they think without being labled a whore, slut, bitch, milf, classless or feminist maybe, just maybe, our really awful humor might have a fighting chance.
Afterall, you big funny men aren't the only ones with an awesome fart joke up your sleeve.
