On June 19th, 2012, Adam Carolla made a blanket statement (as he does most of the time anyway) that women aren't funny in an interview with the New York Post that was released that day. So, of course, Twitter and the rest of the internet erupted making a point to make as many Adam Carolla jokes as possible (lots of people even spelled it Adam "Corolla", like the Toyota car), making the point that Adam Carolla isn't funny, but women are. The following are the funniest Adam Carolla jokes after the "women aren't funny" controversy. The exact quote from Carolla went as follows and is in response to hiring female writers for shows:
"The reason why you know more funny dudes than funny chicks is that dudes are funnier than chicks... When you're picking a basketball team, you'll take the brother over the guy with the yarmulke. Why? Because you're playing the odds. When it comes to comedy, of course there's Sarah Silverman, Tina Fey, Kathy Griffin—super-funny chicks. But if you're playing the odds? No."These are the best Twitter reactions to Adam Carolla saying that women aren't funny.

I happen to think that women, as a hole, are hilarious.— Morgan Murphy (@morgan_murphy) June 19, 2012
Those Were The Days
I miss the good ol' days, when Jerry Lewis & Christopher Hitchens thought we weren't funny.— Sarah Thyre (@SarahThyre) June 19, 2012
What's Adam Carolla gonna do next, host a show where women in bikinis jump on trampolines?— Eli Yudin (@eliyudin) June 19, 2012
It's pretty obvious Adam Carolla's never seen Mrs. Doubtfire.— Petee C (@peteec) June 20, 2012
