    A Canadian stand-up comedian will face a human rights tribunal hearing after a woman complained she and her friends faced a "tirade of homophobic and sexist comments" while attending one of his shows.

    In a decision released this week, the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal ruled there is enough evidence to hear the case of Vancouver woman Lorna Pardy against Toronto comedian Guy Earle. Zesty's Restaurant in Vancouver, where the May 22, 2007, show took place, was also named in the complaint. The restaurant has since closed.

    Not true for all of them but it is fairly accurate for most of the ones I have come in contact with. They seem to think having a sense of humor is somehow not "macho".

    My sister has a great sense of humor, especially about herself. But then, she's Scandinavian, so that comes with the territory. We always have a sense of humor about ourselves. You know who tells the most Scandinavian jokes? Scandinavians, of course.

    Here's a good one from Brett Butler: "My family is Irish and Swedish. We're all alcoholics, but we're real quiet about it."
