Personally, I don't know whether to laugh or cry

From an AP story on a report that says women enjoy humor more than men:
"Women appeared to have less expectation of a reward, which in this case was the punch line of the cartoon," said [research team leader Dr. Allan] Reiss. "So when they got to the joke's punch line, they were more pleased about it."

I don't know about the rest of you gals, but I've known for years that the secret to happiness is lowered expectations.

As a male, I tend to like jokes, but the reason I would say men have a lower reation to it, is we've probably already heard them, it's a known fact that boys watch more cartoons than girls do. At least in my neihborhood it was.
