NOT that we’re saying we are, mind you — for it’s actually occurred to us that maybe we’re not. Funny, that is. And/or, for that matter, as hilarious and/or entertaining as we like to think we are at any delusional moment on any given day. Naturally, we haven’t always felt this way, but after reading a Very Important and Serious Article by Christopher Hitchens called “Why Women Aren’t Funny” in this month’s issue of VANITY FAIR, we find ourselves being forced to re-evaluate the things that make us smile, along with the things we think will make you smile. That’s a lot of smiley-thinky-shit for us to worry about, which, needless to say, completely and utterly pisses us off. Wait. Are we funny when we’re pissed off? Because that might not be bad.
EH. Whether we’re funny, pathetic, pathetically funny — or just a bunch of sadly misguided posers is anyone’s guess. Either way, we know one thing with absolute certainty: some women out there aren’t just funny, they’re fucking hilarious (and his wife wants them to stop). FRENCH & SAUNDERS, to name two. And perhaps never more so than when in “music-video parody” mode, as they are as LANANEENEENOONOO, in this comedic cover of HELP! which they recently(ish) recorded with another group of funny gals*, BANANARAMA.
*”Funny” because, hello? They call themselves Bananarama.
