  1. My wife would agree that they’re just not funny. But then she’s made clear to me that she doesn’t find “silly” to be funny.

    On the other hand, I know of at least one exception: Comedian Paula Poundstone. She’s a major 3 Stooges fan. Even better, I’ve heard her explain exactly *why* they are so funny to so many people over generations! If you can track down the episode of NPR’s “Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me!” where she did so and play it for your wife it might help…but don’t count on it! ;-)


  2. Charles-my wife has shared similar thoughts about humor in general. She often says she just doesn’t get it. If I want to see a mainstream comedy, she cringes at the idea. She however did seem to find Ben Stiller funny in Meet the Parents. I’ll look for the Wait, Wait episode. Thanks for commenting.
