Sometimes It's the Little Things

This Tweet wasn't in my own timeline, as I long since unfollowed UberFacts.  But it was re-tweeted by someone I do follow, so I happened to see it.  I actually did follow UF at one point, but one too many blatantly sexist "facts" (and one too many "facts" of a veracity on the order of that old saw about women over 35 meeting a man versus the likelihood of being struck by lightning) took care of that.

Don't believe things just because you've heard them more than once, and don't believe them just because you encounter them at all.  Trying to define the here-assumed empirical connection between humor and loudness is itself not a slam dunk.  The rest is simply a cheap gender insult.  And therefore boring.
