Ellie Kemper GQ

“Guys, do you want to know a secret? You don’t have to be funny in order to attract us. Believe us, between your scalps and your calves, you’ve already got us. Your narrow, decrescendoing hips, and your soft, very hairy thighs leave us breathless. The truth is, there is no evolutionary cause for you to have to be funny. And precisely because your ancestors, and your ancestors’ grandparents, and your ancestors’ grandparents’ grandparents, and so on and so on, had no procreative need to cultivate a sense of humor and performance, you literally do not have it in your DNA.”

“The Office’s” Ellie Kemper takes every assumption that women aren’t funny — and don’t need to be because they’re sexy‚ and tosses it on it’s head to great effect (and some befuddlement in certain commenters). That’s just a small snippet of her entire GQ essay. Take a break from your day and have a chuckle courtesy of this very funny lady. [GQ]
