John Sellers can eat my poo

Christopher Hitchens famously wrote an article in Vanity Fair where he declared that women weren’t funny. Of course, he was wrong, but by writing it he inspired this guy to write a blog post for Details that explains the truth—it’s not that women aren’t funny, it’s just that a whole…
