Humor, Intelligence, and Romantic Appeal

This is good information for folks like me. I will use this.

According to new research, women rate funny guys as more intelligent than guys who are not so funny. The research was presented this week at the British Psychological Society Annual Conference in Brighton, England.

“Over the course of history, women actively look for signs that their man is intelligent, and I believe the ability to actively judge the situation and pull off a joke and make you laugh is an intelligent feat,” said Kristofor McCarty, a researcher at Northumbria University in Newcastle, England, and author of the study, in an e-mail.

    I think I’m going to try to be now, that’s for certain. It’s really my only shot. So far my plans for getting really, really fucking rich aren’t panning out.
