Sexist jokes never got anyone anywhere

I was just in All Bar One and heard THE MOST SEXIST JOKE:

Q: Why are hurricanes normally named after women?
A: When they come they are wild and wet, when they go they take your house and car with them!

Don't laugh! How rude. If I were to tell such a joke it would run as follows:

Q: Why are tropical storms often named after men?
A: Because they kill people.

You see: feminists can be funny too.


  1. Yes Fellini is extremely sexist,as was casanova,in showing this clip I intended to highlight this fact,a woman portrayed as a mechanical doll.Glad I found your blog though so in a way the clip has brought feminists together.Hooray!!

  2. right on sister! any other amazing feminist bloggers out there? hello?

  3. Hun, what do you expect if you drink at All Bar One (I expect sexist jokes)?
