New research shows that women are attracted to funny guys, who they think are smarter than a gloomy Gus, the Daily Telegraph is reporting.

Even though humor is not really linked to intelligence, “women use humor as an indication of a guy’s intelligence,” said one researcher.


I never thought of Jack Black and Seth Rogen as babe magnets, but now I can see it.  They’re going to eat George Clooney and Brad Pitt’s lunches.  Literally.

Humor isn’t linked to intelligence?  Then how do you explain the Three Stooges?

According to this study, women are attracted to funny men because they equate humor with smarts.  And men aren’t attracted to funny women for the very same reason.

Hey, guys.  If you can make a woman laugh, she’ll forgive your shortcomings — like stealing her car and driving over her cat.  Really.  Try it.
