On a lighter note

Last week I was having lunch with some female friends, and we started to discuss what makes a man attractive. And we all concluded that men who make us laugh score very highly in the attractiveness sweepstakes.

And all of a sudden, I had a flash of genius. GENIUS, I tell you. As in, the committee from Stockholm will be announcing very soon that Poppy Buxom has been awarded the Nobel Prize for Everything Smart.

Here is my genius idea:

Laughing is a powerful, sometimes completely overwhelming physical response to an outside stimulus.

Now, since most females have a strong craving for an unrelated but equally powerful, sometimes completely overwhelming physical response, might we assume that a guy who can provide one overwhelming physical response might be able to provide the other?* And if he's really funny, in multiple amounts?

Well, duh. Of course. Not on the conscious level, of course. But on the unconscious level--definitely.

And now, please excuse me. I need to figure out what to wear to the ceremony in Stockholm.

* Just so you know, I'm not talking about sneezing.


  1. I always thought it had soemthing to do with laughter producing endorphines and you then creating a habit of feeling good in someone's company and associating that with attractiveness.

    But yeah, it's more likely that whole orgasm thing.


  2. Brilliant! We knew you when...

  3. If you happen to be lactose intolerant I can help you get a REAL BIG overwhelming physical response.

  4. So...You're half starved and your brain has turned to postulating the relationship between laughter and orgasms.

    What's in that Seattle Sutton stuff? I'm gonna git me some!

  5. You're a genius. And now, I'd like to hear your take on the 'Big Feet...' theory.

  6. Dammit, and here I was trying to make women sneeze.


  7. I just want to know, how and when u met my husband?...

  8. Well, I wear size 13's, so watching me try to find shoes at Target is always good for a laugh.

  9. Laughter is wonderful. I just love it. I never made that mental connection bw laughter and orgasms until I just read your blog. Now, when I meet a man, I can guarantee you I'll be watching very closely his sense of humor.

    You know, this might be t.m.i., but when I was younger, I used to spontaneously laugh when I had an orgasm and then my hands would go numb. I guess I should have made that connection before. Duh. *headdesk*

  10. I am attracted to this man because he is HILARIOUS and intelligent and talented:
