"The Office" actress/writer Mindy Kaling is so over this "Are women funny?" conversation. (As am I.) While speaking to the Television Critics Association, Kaling was asked about recent pay-attention-to-meeeee comments by "The Man Show"'s Adam Carolla that women just aren't as funny as men.

Women Can Be Funny Too: “Bridesmaids” And Other Hilarious Female Roles

Finally, an outrageous gross-out comedy starring women! Hollywood isn't exactly known for producing flicks that maximize funny females. Even Bette Midler has lamented the lack of funny women gracing the big screen lately. That could explain why so many women are eagerly anticipating this week's release of "Bridesmaids," which has been described as "The Hangover"…

Mind Of Man: Funny Women Are A Natural Resource

According to highly scientific polls, 15 percent of women think staring is cheating, 45 percent have tried the “fingernail” diet, and 99 percent rate a sense of humor as the sexiest trait a man can have (the remaining 1 percent picked “sparkle”).

The Daily Hotness: Women In Comedy

Who says women aren't funny, indeed. Even the cover for the current issue of Vanity Fair (typically kind of a snoozefest, in our opinion) is funny, as Saturday Night Live's Amy Poehler gently cups Tina Fey's breast.
