These Broads Made Me Laugh in 2012

This year there was a lot of funny lady business. In fact, some may say we have peaked the maximum vagina capacity when it comes to women and comedy. Others disagree. I say you can never have enough labia laughs, and the funny women behind the year in yucks are with me on this. Let's take a gander at 2012 in videos, photos, memes, and uh, that's it. That's all comedy is now, right?

This year there was a lot of funny lady business. In fact, some may say we have peaked the maximum vagina capacity when it comes to women and comedy. Others disagree.

Pinterest Fail

This year was definitely the year of Pinterest, the time-sucking never-ending combination of Better Homes and Gardens and Cosmo With! More! Photos!

Remember that magical moment during that debate when Mitt Romney said, “I went to a number of women’s groups and said, ‘Can you help us find folks?...And they brought us whole binders full of women”?
