Study: Women fall for the wittiest guy

Way off topic story here, but scientists are theorizing that women are attracted to funny men and that men (once they get past the “many other qualities admired by superficial man”) are attracted to women who laugh at their jokes.

Their studies confirm the role of humour as a coveted attention-grabber and also validate a long-standing stereotype of flirting ? that women like men who are jokey and guys go for gals who laugh at their jokes. ... The scientists believe their research throws new light on the evolutionary origins of our sense of humour. According to one theory, women prefer funny men because their wit reveals an active and healthy brain ? and a fine set of underlying genes. Accordingly, humour could be a powerful and reliable indicator of creativity and intelligence that conferred a much-sought-after evolutionary advantage.
