America's Funniest Home videos polled 10,000 people and asked them who they would most like to see take a groin shot. The number one answer was Oprah Winfrey, followed closely by Hilary Clinton.

When asked why they wouldn't show a woman getting hit that way, they responded with, "because women don't see it as funny...they see it as abuse".

You have got to be kidding me. It made me wonder if they only polled men in that 10,000.

So men are secure enough that they can laugh about it, and women are so insecure that they cannot?

Wow, if someone can explain this or fix it, I will crown you Queen. (or King)

I would find that pretty hilarious.

Hmmm, I would have responded George W. Bush

Seriously though, I just don't think the reaction of a woman would be as funny as that of a man. I wouldn't consider it abuse though, if it was accidental (which AFV clips almost always are).

Because what a woman has between her legs is sacred and holy. whereas what a man has is worthless "junk".

perhaps one should not use "america's funniest home videos" as a barometer for what women think.

and personally i think a groin shot isn't funny, no matter who gets it. are we really still at the place where a hit in the jimmy can get laughs? that is sort of the comedic equivalent to saying "I love NYC!" if you are in front of a NY crowd. its a gimme. its easy. its for the hard of thinking.

but i would like to see bill o'reilly get a roundhouse to the netherregion, for all that.

There's a world of difference between being "insecure" and just not finding something funny.

I am confused as to why you think they are the same thing?

Hey, I love that show!

Give me Bob Saget, a laugh track and some funny music and I'll laugh at someone sawing their arm off with a chainsaw...

From what is shown, America's Funniest Home Video's target audience seems to be adolescent boys.

Yup, it's still on! I agree with the poster about the target audience too, my older boys (10 and 11yrs) love this show.
