In March 1998 at a TV tribute to Betty Ford, Sharon Stone told the following feminist joke;
“Two guys go into a store to buy a brain. The male brain costs $100 and the female brain costs $25. When they ask the store clerk why the female brain costs so much less, he tells them, ‘Because the female brain has been used.” Sharon herself is credited with a very high IQ.
However, for someone who is supposedly so intelligent the following quote attributed to her is at best insensitive if not downright stupid; “I’m not happy about the way the Chinese are treating the Tibetans because I don’t think anyone should be unkind to anyone else,” “And then this earthquake and all this stuff happened, and then I thought, is that karma? When you’re not nice that the bad things happen to you?” Sharon has since apologised and her apology might even be genuine. Nevertheless, I would like to end this little ditty by telling a joke; “Two women go into a store to buy a brain. The female brain costs $100 and the male brain costs $25. When they ask the store clerk why the male brain costs so much less, he tells them, ‘Because the male brain has been used.”
The death toll in the Sichuan earthquake will probably exceed 80,000.
The picture is of Sharon Stone and the Dalai Lama.
