Jennifer Rawlings

1. When you hear the old shibboleth that “women don’t have a sense of humor” or are “less funny than men,” your immediate response is_______________.

I don’t respond, only someone living in a cave dragging their knuckles on the ground could be so uninformed. Maybe they need psychiatric treatment to help with their delusions?

2. Were you funny as a kid? Were you funnier (or less funny) as teenager?

I was not the class clown, I was more the class joy seeker.

3. What’s the most notable way your life would be different if you didn’t have your sense of humor?

Being a mom would be so difficult without a sense of humor- silly is key to parenthood

4. If you could have a magnificent dinner with three women—real, fictional, mythological—who would you choose as your guests?

Lucille Ball, Carol Burnett, Elenor Roosevelt

5. Do you think those closest to you admire you for your sense of humor—or despite your sense of humor?

Admire- I think.
