Women May Enjoy Humor More, if It's Funny Um...can we say "Doh" here?
Women were subjecting humor to more analysis with the aim of determining if it was indeed funny, Reiss said in a telephone interview. Men are using the same network in the brain, but less so, he said, men are less discriminating. "It doesn't take a lot of analytical machinery to think someone getting poked in the eye is funny," he commented when asked about humor like the Three Stooges.
I was going to ask if there was such a thing as UN-funny humor, but the mention of the Stooges answered that question!

Methodist Court Removes Openly Lesbian Minister - New York Times
Although United Methodism prohibits openly gay people in the pulpit, it welcomes all to worship. Mr. Johnson did not forbid the gay man to attend his church but said he would not allow him to become a member, according to Carole Vaughn, spokeswoman for the Virginia Annual Conference, which includes the South Hill church. Regional church officials tried to get Mr. Johnson to change his stance, and when he refused, his peers suspended him for a year without pay. The regional conference must now reinstate him, pay him back wages and benefits, and find a new position for him. Mr. Johnson could not be reached for comment.
Ouch. Wonder if it's time I quit describing myself as a Methodist?
