Quote of the Day
"They make you hire a certain number of chicks, and they’re always the least funny on the writing staff. 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.'"
-- Adam Carolla
That Carolla is a reactionary misogynist shithead isn't news; it's common knowledge by now. But for God's sake, would articles that call him out for it and that aim to disprove his Neanderthalic theory on women and comedy please avoid citing Lena Dunham as their very first example of a really funny woman.
Girls is overrated, mumblecore crap and Dunham is about as funny as colon cancer.
I can think of a dozen women off the top of my head who are funnier than almost any man alive -- certainly funnier than Carolla -- and Lena Dunham isn't one of them.
