Brodzinsky, David M.; Rubien, Janet
Journal of Counsulting and Clinical Psychology, 44, 4, 597-600, Aug 76

Results indicate that males generated funnier captions than females to sexual and aggressive stimuli but not to neutral stimuli. Moreover, creativity was positively related to humor production.
